Overall the experience wasn't bad. The room i stayed in was spacious and suited two adults; the check-in staff was courteous and efficient; there is an in-door pool and restaurant in the hotel, and there were coffee makers and cable TV in my room. I will say that despite the age of the hotel, the general amenities and room were... More

Room is dated but relatively clean. The air conditioner was extremely loud. Since I needed to stay 6 days, I ask for a room change. Was told that it was a full house that night with no room available. But can do so in the morning. The new room had a shower soap/dispenser that was empty and mold on the... More

It is convenient to have a liquid soap dispenser in the shower but someone has to actually fill it.... More

I found it really hard to find a good hotel in Victoria that wasn't outrageously expensive. Everything in the city seems dated and very expensive so I picked this hotel for the relatively low price and location. It was only about 2-5 min drive away from downtown so that was handy. The hotel was dated, but clean- which is more... More

This hotel is rundown. Everything is dated and grimy. The AC was extremely noisy, so much so that we couldn't even use it. The fridge and tv also made a lot of noise, which was annoying. I would never stay here again. I felt dirty walking on the carpets and sitting on the couch. You will be disappointed if you... More
