We ended up staying in Victoria last minute and were able to grab a room at the Sandman. It is relatively close to the downtown centre so our cab back that night was affordable (although not walking distance to any major attraction). We ended up in a suite as there was no standard rooms left, which was fine with us.... More

The hotel overlooks one of the main roads to access Victoria, a car wash and a pretty depressing parking lot...And the green you see in the picture? We didn't find any...Not the best panorama. It is also quite far from the town center (30 min on foot - if you are young and fit) where the sightseeing and most of... More

One night was enough. Sandman must be manufacturing their own brand of the entire spectrum of brown paint. The whole hotel is decked out in depressing shades of yes, brown. The room was large but just felt like I couldn't relax as it felt grotty for want of a better word. No duvets but some awful type of synthetic blanket.... More

Considering where you are in Victoria, the rate was about the only real pleasantry of this hotel. Being attached to Shark Club was a plus but only for an hour or so. The room was nicely placed but in dire need of updating. The only modern thing in the room was a flat wall mounted TV. The bed was awful... More

A one night stay. OK not quite in the centre of Victoria - more like a 20 minute walk! But rooms were clean and spacious, staff were pleasant, and the sleep was good. Didn't do the breakfast as there were too many other options. The shark bar next door just offers normal sports bar fare, i.e. American football (which I... More

We stayed here just one night traveling around in BC. Overall clean hotel with friendly staff at a feasible 15 min walk from downtown Victoria. The swimming pool is fine, the gym somehow stuffy because of little air circulation. There is also a small laundry available.

It was clean, had spacious rooms and the staff was friendly/knowledgeable. We stayed there for 3 nights while visiting Victoria. Its a 5/10 minute cab ride to downtown or the harbor. The restaurant that's attached to the hotel has very good food and service. They have a breakfast area that's separate from the hotel plus a full sized bar/restaurant in... More

My room was much better than I expected for the price. It was a mini suite on the third floor with both a bedroom and a small sitting room. The bed was a king and very comfortable. All of the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I will use this as my Victoria hotel in the future.

My family booked a room with a kitchenette so we could be self-sufficient for the weekend while we were attending a softball tournament in town. We were placed in a room with a window overlooking the front entrance and smoking area, meaning we had the sun shining in our window early in the morning, which I actually enjoyed. The only... More

This hotel was slightly out of town with approx 30 min walk to harbour. The hotel was good, with friendly efficient service. Room was large with kitchenette so if staying for more the one night could be useful.. The only downside to the hotel was location, the walk back from town at night was passed prostitutes and homeless sleeping rough.... More
