We have done a long stay December and January twice and highly recommend this Inn. Easy to walk through the downtown, next to Parliament buildings and Inner Harbour. Public transit is easily available. Great Walk to James Bay area and Dallas road

The ideally located Embassy Inn has long been a favourite hotel, especially for longer stays, in scenic Victoria. Just one block off the Inner Harbour on Menzies St. The Embassy is close to downtown, museums, restaurants, carriage rides, tours, transportation -- everything the Victoria visitor could want or need. Yet with all it offers, the price is very reasonable for... More

Honestly, when I booked this property, I was not expecting much. When we drove up to the building, I was a little worried. Parking was tight, the building looked older. But once we were inside the Embassy Inn, all my fears were put aside. Amazingly nice staff, beautiful, up to date, and clean rooms. Comfortable beds and lots of nice... More

Nothing fancy. But extremely practical. Suites have stoves, full size fridge, kitchen table, dishes etc. 2 balconies, windows that open for the fresh air. Great views of the legislature etc. It's clean, it's within walking distance of everything down town. And it's reasonably priced. Best value for dollar. Comes with breakfast -- just ok breakfast but I"m a picky eater.... More

The staff was helpful and our greeting was warm and friendly. The room was good-sized and offered all the amenities promised. The location is perfect for all Victoria activities (nothing is far away) and it's only s hort walk to the excellent museum, the government buildings and the shopping area of the city. The only drawback was the restaurant, which,... More

The Embassy Inn is located very close to Victoria's Inner Harbor and the downtown, so it is ideally located for visitors wanting to explore the famous old city. We booked in for a twelve-day stay and were given a suite on the top floor for just over $100/night, but it also included hot breakasts daily with a $20 value. Our... More

We took the Victoria Clipper from Seattle to Victoria. The walk from point of arrival-with luggage was 10 minutes or less. We had 3 great nights at this clean, well located Hotel. Sarah, one of the Managers provided excellent information regarding the area when I booked our stay by telephone. A good warm breakfast was included with our price. I... More

Well to start this is a great location. It is beside the parliament buildings across the street from the Robert Bateman exhibit and one block to the Royal BC Museum and Empress Hotel and the causeway. It is three block walk to downtown shopping and restaurant area. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The room was not large nor... More

This is a moderately appointed, clean hotel. Prices were very good - just under $100.00 taxes included. The location - across the street from the Legislature was perfect for various walking tours of the city. Breakfast was included. It was tasty and filling! This is a great value!
