We chose Hotel Zed because it was an affordable spot that was fairly close to downtown Victoria. The vibe is fun and friendly. The location is on a busy street, but noise was never a problem, even though we were on the front side and we slept with the windows open. We had one of the least expensive rooms, and... More

We had a "cool stay, man". This motel has a 1960's-1970's vibe. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable. We used their bikes and helmets to ride the bike trail that was nearby down to the Harbor where we ate breakfast. Later that day we had a nice round of... More

I stayed here when my son was in the hospital. I was only here one night and only slept as I didn't arrive till late at night and was gone quite promptly in the morning. Even though I came in late at night the desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The parking lot was really full unfortunately but I... More

I applaud the concept behind the Zed - it is clever and charming and very creative. But they don't have coffee makers in the rooms. The reason for this is they wanted to put their coffee resources into very good coffee located in the lobby, thus encouraging guests to interact with each other. And that's great. But for business travellers... More

Thanks Kate, We really appreciate the kind review. Your point on the coffee is a good one. Indeed we decided to go with really great coffee available for our guests free in our lobby as opposed to so so coffee in every room. Our research shows that even with in-room coffee folks head out of hotels to their favorite coffee... More

Smiles go miles Immediately as you arrive at hotel zed you know your in for something unique and special. What grabs your attention foremost though, is the courteous, friendly, go out of their way staff. If you've read other reviews they've vastly covered the 70s theme, the decor and amenities...so I need not banter about that. I've stayed in 5... More

I gotta say that they really did an interesting remodel of this place. It was formerly known as the Blue Ridge Inn when I stayed last year. I don't know if the "Zed" part of the hotel's name works for me but hey, that's marketing for you. Basically what your paying for is convenience balanced out by cost and value.... More

Hi Matt G. Thanks for choosing to stay at Hotel Zed. Glad you enjoyed your stay for the most part. We made a decision to go with gourmet coffee in the lobby versus the boring old typical stuff you get in rooms at most hotels. Sorry if that was not your style. We will also have maintenance check for that... More

Little far out of city, however free bike hire and shuttle service. Spotless rooms everything new, well thought out, little touches everywhere, awesome staff, map on check in, spent a lot on renovation, just ac missing. Do have fan though. Wouldn't recommend anywhere else for value and service in Victoria.
