We stayed here for the night when we came from out of town for a family emergency... I was greatly surprised when I got inside... from the outside it looks a little run down and sketchy but WOW when we opened the door it was bright and clean. The staff was amazing as we never made a reservation, they were... More

Rooms were very clean and comfortable; not luxurious, but awesome for the price. The hot tub was closed when we went, which was pretty disappointing. The free rental bikes are very useful and great (downtown was a short and nice bike ride away), and the van transport to to downtown is easy, quick, and convenient. I would stay here again... More

Pretty authentic retro motel. Loved it. Some rooms the heaters didn't work that well...but oh well it was just for the night and we didn't really care. We booked two rooms for our extended family vacation to victoria. Our dog loved it and so did the baby. Would go back for more. The mall across the street has a food... More

Took my two kids (boys: 8 and 10 years old) to visit Victoria, and we stayed at the Hotel Zed. They were ecstatic over the waterslide, and the 'rumpus room' under the front desk/ lobby area had a ping pong table and Wii system where they could enjoy some entertainment while I enjoyed a few quiet moments myself. The staff... More

Thanks Andrea for taking the time to write such an awesome review! We definitely have lots for kids to do while they are staying here and it sounds like your little ones used it all.

We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2014. We found that the check in was very smooth and the room was clean and comfortable. There is no coffee in the rooms but there is options for coffee and hot chocolate in the main lobby area. We only had one issue in our room which was a rattle in the... More

Dear GR8. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate the feedback so we can improve! Sorry about the rattle in the door. Weather stripping is definitely something we are working on to help with the seal. Our standard rooms with 2 beds are equipped with 4 bath towels. Hopefully all 4 were in your room. The... More

On their website this looks like a cool place to stay, however once you arrive you quickly see that it is an old motel with new paint in an area that does not best show off how beautiful Victoria is. There are much nicer places to stay at, at an equal or lesser cost. Im sorry, things like the record... More

Hi Cody, thanks for taking the time to review Hotel Zed. I am sorry we failed to impress you though. While the room furnishings, bedding, and size of waterslide were not to your liking, we do in fact have many guests that enjoy these things about Hotel Zed. It does sound like we did come up short in a few... More

I loved all the colors and décor in the room! The bed was so comfy, and the room was pretty big and really clean. It was a bit noisy with the echo of people in the pool, but otherwise I had a great stay!
