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

We stayed overnight in a King Suite. Bed was comfortable, room space is ok, clean. large indoor pool. Negative: pillows are not enough- be sure to ask for extra as soon as you check-in. Towels are not big enough & easily soaks so ask for extra, too.

It was bad on my first visit in May. I had a very old room that seemed like it hadn't been renovated since the early 90's. When I asked to switch to the "renovated" part of the hotel they told me it would be a loss of revenue... Guest services is not their strongest either. I'm not sure why I... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and were very disappointed. We have stayed at other Sandmans and assumed they were all the same. Not so. Positive: Room was clean and Shark Club attached so it's easy to get a bite to eat if you don't want to go out. Pretty good central location. Indoor pool. Housekeepers were... More

I've stayed here before on business and chose to stay again for a family vacation because it has a great pool (large, very clean). I checked in with two 13 year olds and when I asked the desk clerk what the age was that children could swim without an adult present, he said *18*. I commented that was very odd... More

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding your recent stay. I apologize for the communication error regarding the age limit for using the pool area. I wanted to clarify that the age limit to use the pool without an adult is 13 years old. We do post signs that the hot tub is to be used by adults only... More

We had to book this the same day we needed it and the hotel was quite booked from what I could tell. So we ended up having to take a Junior Suite we didn't want or need. $170 for the night. I was okay with that especially if there is breakfast included BUT there wasn't!! I know it was my... More

We stayed here this past weekend in a suite and although most of our experience was average, we did have one disgusting discovery in the bed! Late the first night, after a long day of driving and hockey games, we pulled out the hide-a-bed for our young hockey player to sleep on and on it, we found a large, gross... More
