Victoria is an expensive city, and a hard city to find reasonable accommodation in the downtown. Tally Ho Hotel (formerly the Vacation Inn Hotel and Convention Center) is great value. It's clean and quiet. There's nothing fancy here, but it's reasonable, on the bus routes, and an easy walking distance from the core. They have a business center in the... More

Our first night in Victoria BC at the peak holiday week no decent hotel could be found. By sheer chance we walked along Douglas Street and saw the 'Tally Ho'. We rather anticipated the same reply that we had received at other hotels where we had sought accommodation. We were fortunate to meet a superb manager, Richard Sung. He went... More

Landed in Victoria high season without a reservation. We researched expedia.ca and found this Motel. Located within 1.9 km of downtown Victoria. It was clean, spacious, great service and restaurant. There is also an outdoor swimming pool. We paid 109.00 which was amazing in high season. Would definitely return. Thanks to the staff for there prompt service to any request.... More

Convenient from the heart of Victoria, this off beat older hotel sparkles with its hidden amenities. A great pool, quiet, clean room, personable and friendly staff and an AWESOME restaurant. Our two week vacation left us and our traveling friends thinking back that the food we ate at the Tally Ho Restaurant ranked right up there with the "upper crust"... More

We had to change rooms due to a maintenance issue however they were courteous and professional and we had a good stay. There is a restaurant off the and of the main floor hallway "Kitties Hideaway" it is fantastic! Amazing comfort food, huge breakfasts, don't miss it. :)

Room smells of old smoke. Bathroom:tub is stained and the sink is cracked like an eggshell. The smoke alarm is ancient, discoloured and obviously not functional (light dead). I paid over $140 for THIS?! Thanks for nothing, Expedia.

All seemd okay at the beginning, basic room, simple amenities. We didnt pay much and didnt expect much either. i could have dealt with the dirty coffe pot, broken AC, wet carpet, musty smell and general run-down atmostphere but the worst part was the management. The staff were friendly enough but the guy running the place was a cheap and... More

This hotel was clean and had the basics. Open internet(no security), very pleasant staff always willing to help, great price. Forgot alcohol in room and when we called back days later they said they had it and we could pick it up the next time we were in Victoria. We would stay there again.

I stayed here with my mother and brother AND my little dog! I was so glad they were pet-friendly and they were also ok for us to leave the dog alone in the room sometimes which was great.
