We have stayed here before. It was usually a clean, non-descript stay at a budget hotel. Our son enjoys the outdoor pool in the summer, there is some shopping close by, and nice walking areas around the Gorge area. We had stayed last October and had less than a stellar stay. The manager contacted us, listened to our concerns, and... More

Stayed here many years ago, and then again on a recent 'last-minute' trip. I recalled that they had a few cottage-style rooms facing the Gorge waterway (see pics). On booking, "Annie" was just great in giving me several options. She confirmed my memory of the cottages, but as I was travelling alone I thought the two bedrooms was likely too... More

We stayed for 7 nights. The desk clerk was so accommodating considering I had made the reservation through Expedia. While making the reservation, I had mistakenly clicked on the expedia link instead of the Choice link. Expedia told me that they were not handling reservations for Choice Hotel. Expedia assured me we would be well looked after. Well thank goodness... More

I stayed here on a motorcycle trip this summer and it was pretty comfortable. The hotel is large and used to be a Comfort Inn which means the buildings and facilities are quite nice. The rooms are comfortable, nice bedding and a decent breakfast. It is a budget hotel and much less expensive than the hotels right in the downtown.... More

I guess you get what you pay for! Booked this as it was close to our daughters house , not because of the price. Room was in need of a "good" cleaning. Found a number of spiders and the pillow cases had not been changed( hair still on them). The breakfast was acceptable not exceptional.

The hotel fills its promises. One corner kitchen area is very well fitted out with all the conveniences of use. The bed is cosy with a good mattress. The bathroom is clean and there is of the space to circulate. In $119 at night, you should not expect to have a royal suite in 1000 $. The breakfast allows you... More

Had to make a quick trip down to Victoria and needed a place overnight and as I had never stayed in this hotel before I was hesitant (It was the old Comfort Inn). It is reasonable in the cost of the room which was large and right on the Gorge which was a bonus. It is clean, although a little... More

My husband and I recently stayed here in one of there cottages. We were pleasantly surprised how comfortable they were. The beds were more comfortable than a lot of more expensive hotels we have stayed in. Having the deck looking over the Gorge waterway was very serene. Very clean and cozy, even a fireplace for the cooler nights and great... More
