If you want to experience something different then this hotel is for you. Renovated recently, totally cool fresh colourful look! Motel style but! You won't find anything similar in the area! Very clean and comfortable rooms with interesting tips and tasks on the wall board to stay entertained. Free bicycles, waterside, hot tub! Ping-pong in the lobby area, super good... More

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

We stayed at Hotel Zed for four nights, we were pleasantly surprised by this little gem. I just want to start by saying I have never stayed in a hotel with excellent wifi - until now. The wifi at this hotel is lightning fast. The rooms are clean and really fit with the retro theme of the hotel. We had... More

Dear Carly Thanks for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed all that Hotel Zed has to offer. A/C is definitely something we are looking into this fall to see if the mid-century building can accommodate it. We will keep you posted! We appreciate the feedback on noise. That is a tough one due to the age of the... 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
