I've stayed here with my friends for 2 nights, and while the hotel may be dated, the hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful. It was also very affordable when being compared to the rest of the other hotels in Victoria. My room had all sorts of towels and basic amenities. They also have a indoor pool! That's a bonus....
