I think this is the first review I have written on this site but felt it was time to give back a little after benefiting from the reviews when I have booked travel. My wife and I were recently in Victoria for the weekend and stayed here given the location (we had an event at Elk Lake) and the rate.... More

We stayed here for two nights. The first night we faced the parking lot and there was a fair bit of noise as the bar customers stumbled to their cars. We could have closed the window to cut down on this I guess, but the fresh air was nice. We found a small bug in one of the beds that... More

Yes, if you don't travel much (and can never be bothered to learn to get around) or come on business, this may not be the ideal location. But that all depends on your perspective and your personal travel taste and budget. It certainly fit for me and my friend. It was very easy (15 minute) bus ride to reach the... More

I chose this hotel because it was closest to my price range, but it was about a 20 minute bus ride from downtown (as we did not have a car), and was right next to a casino and liquor store, which might not be ideal. However, the staff was nice and helpful, and we managed to get to and from... More

Boyfriend stayed here for trades school, joined him with kids for hockey tournament... Overall, great value for the money, staff was friendly and very helpful, no noise from attached bars, and is located close to many amenities. Rooms are clean and nicely updated with granite in both kitchen and bathroom... Only recommendation would be better beds and bedding... Other than... More

We rented a studio suite for two and a half months and found it very comfortable; the staff friendly. Our questions were answered quickly. We required a second cooking pot, it was purchased and delivered within 24 hours. The hotel is conveniently located to shopping, restaurants and the Galloping Goose walking trail. The guest laundry was clean and machines in... More

Pleasantly surprised at our lovely suite room . Made it so easy to spend time with our families and get a good night sleep. Television in both rooms great. Housekeeping did a good job when tipped. Maintenance needs to concentrate on lightbulbs and white doors in rooms requiring cleaning hygiene issue. Friendly helpful staff. Would return and recommend.

Not a standard Red Lion but beds very comfortable, rooms are small but well adorned. Rooms are dim due to the use of the new light bulbs but not the fault of the hotel. 2 Queen beds for $55.00 is spectacular for the area, and included parking. Only drawback is the hotel is out of the main town area and... More
