This hotel is located close to Mayfair mall. It's a couple of km out of the downtown. The savings are worth it. With the increase in downtown tourism, hotel prices have shot up. The Tally Ho is still a reasonable deal. They have a pool with water slide so bring your suit. Great restaurant!

Stayed for two nights with my husband and my daughters. - Extremely bad and strong smell (honestly smelling like excrements). The employee and the manager at the front desk could not smell it (I still believe it was denial on their side). My 4 year-old kept saying she wanted to get out of the smelly room but the hotel was... More

We stopped at the Tally-Ho for drinks with a group. There was a band playing and the place was rocking. We are seniors and the music was 60's so it was right down our alley. Service was good and the drinks reasonably priced Had a great time. We even got to dance which in bars today is a virtual impossibility

Stayed one night for a family reunion. Accommodations are adequate. Bathroom was newly renovated. Hallways, walls and corners with many paint chips. Looks like maintenance isn't a priority. Breakfast was better than expect. Great coffee!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting relatives. The restaurant was good for breakfast and close to all we needed. The staff were friendly and the room was fine, even though it was somewhat dated with old school TV. We would stay here again.

I was there for the Victoria Labour Council mingler. The bar was very loud and busy for a Wed night. Service was good, food was good-beer too many of the lousy national brands-just 3 locals on tap. Had 2 flavours of chicken wings, dry garlic ribs, gyoza dumplings, pizza bites and veggie dip.The bar is very dark-lots of tvs showing... More

My husband and i travelled to Victoria to adopt a dog so we needed a dog friendly hotel. Both of our hockey teams were playing each other that saturday so we also wanted a great sports pub. We found both at the Tally Ho. Upon arrival we found something we were dissatisfied about in our room, the staff immediately gave... More

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
