My husband and I (in our 40's and 50's) reserved this hotel with trepidation as many reviews stated it was filled with loud party kids. But it fit our location and price requirements so we went with it. Glad we did! The hotel staff was great, particularly Kara who put us in a great and very, very quiet inside (not... More

As you have experienced many of the different room types at the Hotel you can understand online booking is difficult for us to place all room types online and we may have closed of some types of rooms as occupancy dictates.

You cannot beat the location of the strathcona hotel, right in the heart of downtown Victoria. The hotel has 5 entertainment rooms, bars, disco, etc. One of the more popular night spots in town. We had rooms on the first floor at the back and they have been recently renovated and were quiet. Victoria hotel rooms are not cheap in... More

We are so happy we stayed at the Strathcona. We stayed on the 5th floor and it appeared that our room had been recently renovated. We had a ceiling fan, a stand fan and the window opened to allow a breeze. Perhaps because we currently live in Washington, without A/C, we were better able to deal with the lack of... More

Stayed two nights in the Strathcona recently. What a nice location! Employees were very friendly. The room was a decent size and decorated just fine. However, the heat, humidity and noise were unbearable. We tried leaving the windows open to capture the cool, pleasant air outside. But the noise, filthy language , and very loud music were too much.

My mom and I did a 24 hour jaunt to Victoria to check out the sights I haven't seen in over a decade, and the new Vikings exhibit. The Strathcona was the most reasonably priced hotel in the area, and appealed to my mom for its connection to the Sticky Wicket, and what we'd later learn, another 7 assorted establishments... More
