Super great service. Very accommodating. It was much quieter than I thought it would be considering the location and locale of our room above the Shark Club. Room was very clean, but a bit tired. Bedding and décor were old-style. Some freshening up to the décor would be a huge improvement. Beds were comfy and seemed quite new. Very pleasant... More

Stayed at the hotel during a week in July and once again in August. This is the "high" season for rates (and tourists) in Victoria but was able to get a good rate via their 1-800 reservation line (along with a call by them to the manager to get the best deal). Both times stayed in the King suite (with... More

My husband and I spent two nights a the Sandman Hotel Victoria on August 2-4, 2012. We were pleasantly surprised at the price $119.00/night and were given a suite which included a second tv, kitchenette and pull out sofa. My only slight disappointment was the front office staff. Upon checking in we asked for directions to Butchart Gardens (being a... More

Super friendly staff at this budget hotel in Victoria. The rooms are older, bathrooms clean but nothing spectacular, but Victoria is a nice place, and you should only be in the hotel room to sleep anyway. Free wifi and parking.

Smooth check in, friendly staff, but the hotel feels really old. It is a very basic hotel - although they have suites with kitchens in them if you need. Bed comfortors are those tacky awful things that are from the 70's.

The hotel staff were courteous and the hotel was generally clean. The room was nice, although the bathroom was a bit outdated and the TV was ancient. Overall a pleasant experience, although it was a little pricey for what you get.

Room was adequately appointed amenities wise, however they still have CRT TV's, flat screens would be a nice addition. Biggest disappointments were the quality of cleanliness and consistency of staff. Extensive stains on the curtains left much to the imagination on how they got there, and the booger on the bed spread was a nice surprise. Staff service level was... More

Delivered service as promised. Our family room was clean and quiet. We slept well and that is what we were paying for. Fridge, coffee maker and microwave a bonus as we stayed 5 nights. Ample towels...always nice. Would stay there again.
