Good hotel for park and fly as the room rate includes parking while on holiday as well as cab fare to the airport.Very convenient for early flights out of Victoria international.Not recommended for longer than a two night stay due to location and smaller rooms.

We love this Inn, but after reading reviews we were nervous. We were NOT disappointed. Comfortable, lovely atmosphere, clean. New roof and carpets. Good breakfast. John at the desk so friendly and loving. Will always think of this Inn first when coming to the island. Not necessarily for young children. Those wanting 5 star hotels best pay for them.

We choose this hotel for the last two nights of your vacation because it was close to the airport. Don't bother, the place is old which is ok but they have not spent a dime keeping it presentable in years. It smells and has water damaged ceilings in the bathroom. The quality of the bathroom and bed linens is terrible.... More

After and unfortunate experience at a hotel in Victoria, B.C. we stayed at the Waddling Dog Inn in Central Saanich B.C. What a great old place. We ended up staying three nights. It was like a visit to old England complete with the pleasant older lady at the front desk and the adorable basset hound named "John" who also worked... More

I have stayed once before for a stop over on the way to other locations on the island. That stay was enjoyable, so with the high prices of rooms in Victoria in the summer, I chose to stay here again this summer. It was quiet, clean, and friendly service. I also loved the location being only 20 minutes from my... More

A Scottish architect was imported to design this hotel. If you like half-timbering and gables, you'll really like this one. We had room 312, which had a single queen bed. The layout was excellent. Outside the bathroom, which featured pretty vintage-pattern tile and a long counter with sink, there was a virtual dressing room with vanity, mirror, and closet. The... More

We had stayed at this hotel over a number of years during both business and personal trips and were always impressed with the charm,size of rooms, cleanliness, and overall level of service. In fact, we brought 3 different sets of Swiss relatives there during the obligatory tour of Vancouver Island during the last 5 years. I even recommended this hotel... More

We went to the Island for a wedding in stayed at the Waddling Dog for two nights. It doesn't look like much when you first walk up, but the Waddling Dog delivered outstanding value for the money and we would definitely stay there again. Some highlights of our stay: - the room had *two* large, wide-opening windows - a feature... More
