We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights and were very pleasantly surprised by it considering it is rated as a three star hotel. The rooms were very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room was quiet in spite of being located directly across from the elevator, breakfasts were all we required and, above all, the staff was... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 4 days at this hotel. Plenty of room to move around,your own private balcony, comfy beds a kitchen with refrigerator great. The complimentary breakfast is top notch and would give the big chains a run for their money. The hotel is only half block from the harbour next to the Parliament buildings.... More

Spur-of-the-moment reservation through BC Ferries Vacations. Originally we planned to stay at the Grand Pacific nearby until we learned at the last moment of their additional $20 overnight parking charge, previously undisclosed! We'd never stayed at The Embassy Inn but it turned out to be a great experience. Comfortable queen beds & pillows, we liked that. Attractive roof lighting on... More

We reserved our room on a deal through Expedia. We had room 207. Two queens. Nice fresh and clean duvet covers and sheets, we like that, all white. Pillows a bit lumpy. Carpet is new, but furnishings out of date, bathroom too. But all clean. Balcony doors but no view from this room really. Parked underground which was nice. This... More

Great location for visiting Victoria. Quiet and clean. An easy walk to the inner harbor and the downtown shopping. The museum is a short couple of blocks. Wonderful full complimentary breakfast in the morning in a restaurant like setting. It's three blocks to the Black Ball Ferry in the morning.

This hotel may be one of the older ones in Victoria, but still delivers charm & comfort while concealing her age well. We stayed in 401, a dbl queen room with kitchenette & balcony.
