We have stayed at the Embassy Inn several times now. It is comfortable, clean and really good value, we even had a small balcony. The complimentary hot breakfast is great and there is free parking. We ate in the hotel's restaurant one of the evenings but regret there was no vegetarian main course on the menu. We opted for soup... More

Thank you for the review and being a valued return guest. I will speak with our chef and ask him to create some great vegetarian options for our menus. He's great at coming up with additional menu choices. We look forward to your return trip. More

Booked this hotel as a package with BC Ferries. Lovely hotel and very central for us. Front desk staff were very nice and efficient. We had two rooms one on 2nd floor and one on 4th floor. The room on 4th floor had sloped ceiling and skylight which made it seem bigger and brighter than the other but both rooms... More

Clean room in a good location. It has a restaurant and lounge but in the 5 days I was there I didn't see anyone in there. I went to the tiny lounge one evening and there wasn't even any staff in there. On the upside, free parking and close to the inner harbour.

Thank you for the review of your recent stay with us. I do sincerely apologize that the lounge didn't appear to be open. We do have evening staff that are able to serve guests when needed including a Duty Manager. Our location within Victoria's Inner Harbour is a benefit to all guests who choose to stay with us.

The Embassy Inn gave us a clean, cozy place to stay in Victoria. We stayed in the newer section. It had a large bathroom, kitchenette, and dining table. We were on the fourth floor and found it to be very quiet. The room had a cute little walk-through window onto a small balcony. We booked the room with the Co-Ho... More

Booked this through BC ferries vacations website last minute. Should have searched a bit more. Nothing really wrong with it other than being old and outdated. The room I stayed in, had a balcony (if you could call it that) facing the parking lot which would have been okay if there was a chair to sit on. A really hot... More

Thank you for your review. All 70 guest rooms in the hotel do have a balcony. As the hotel rooms face north and south, so do the balconies. We also provide air-conditioning in all 70 rooms. I am sorry you weren't able to notice the unit. It provides heat or air-conditioning. All beds and bedding are new in the hotel.... More

This a great hotel with wonderful friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and most have balconies. It is a short walk to the waterfront. There is a choice of a breakfast to be included for a few dollars more. The breakfast is good and a great deal. We took the airport shuttle which picks up beside the hotel. Ron at... More

Super location, quiet, clean room and pleasant, helpful staff. Room had airconditioning and a balcony. Ate dinner at the restaurant, food was great and service was very friendly, even entertaining our 9 month old. Right beside parliament buildings and steps from the harbour.

Sheets were clean and soft. Close to harbour. We will stay here again. Bathroom very clean. So so breakfast buffet, but a good cost saver. Nice room. Decent AC. We didn't have time to use the pool but it looked great.

This hotel experience was as near perfect as possible. The staff were all cheerful, friendly, and very helpful. Our suite was large, very clean, quiet, and had wonderful views of the waterfront. The dining room was beautiful and the food was excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel. It's location near the shore was an added bonus.
