Due to family medical problems, we had to spend a lot of time in Victoria, BC. The helpful and friendly staff made every effort to accommodate our ever changing needs. Special thanks to Chris who went out of his way to help us out. We will use them in the future and have already booked another stay.

I needed surgery for a fall I had. This hotel was really close to the hospital. The room was clean but, dated. They had put us in a monthly rental room and we were only there for 3 days. There were no amenities whatsoever. We contacted management and they addressed our situation right away. The beds were very old but,... More

Stayed in this hotel while visiting a family member in the hospital. The staff were always helpful and friendly and the room was big and very clean! We also had a kitchen which was so useful. It is in a great location close to uptown (shopping center) and the Mayfair mall, or just a short drive to downtown Victoria. Also... More

What they represent themselves is not true. The hotel was dirty with left over food on the floor and dirty glasses. There was snot yes snot on the wall and undesirable people everywhere, coffee was not replenished. People up stairs were loud and rude, plus people lived there and did not care about anyone but themselves. Do yourself a favor... More

Spent a week in October on Vancouver Island attending an Earthcaching Conference. It was a half hour drive to the conference and I could have stayed closer but I had stay at the Red Lion once before and really liked it. Plus I enjoy the life of the big city. I was treated with extreme kindness. The concierge knew all... More

Room with kitchen which helped us. Good location, 12 minutes away from downtown. Good Staff. I reserved a queen bed, but got two double beds tough because they didn't have any queen bed anymore. Chinese restaurant bellow was pretty good and cheap. Friday night I had some trouble to sleep because of some people yelling next to the hotel, but... More

The Red Lion Inn is by no means a luxurious establishment, but if you are traveling on a budget, you will find a more than adequate accommodation here. You really can't beat the price if you are looking for easy access to downtown - a 15 minute bus ride will get you to the bottom of Douglas, or it's about... More

I booked this room online on short notice. The rate was very good, and the hotel was located near downtown. The hotel is on a busy street, but it is very convenient to access downtown. There is also a bike trail that runs directly behind it (I'll have to bring my bike next time I visit). The staff was friendly... More

Great Rooms, very clean and a good size, second visit to this hotel. Staff very helpful. Nice Chinese restaurant below hotel, a sports bar next door with great bar food. Good location for touring Vancouver Island.

All in all, the hotel is very basic there was nothing special about it and the pool was closed. There was a fitness facility you could use but you had to either walk or drive there because it wasn't at the actual hotel. Its a $50 cab ride from the airport and a $10 cab ride to the down town...
