I stayed at the Howard Johnson in Victoria, on business. They had a nice setup for working in the room, and easy access to wifi. The rooms are comfortable and clean and I would recommend staying there again.

We had a very clean room and staff was friendly. Everything was in working order and I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends. The restaurant attached was fairly priced for the food we received.

A bit noisy with lots of teams plus highway on one side so be aware of that. Otherwise, staff helpful, hotel clean and rooms comfortable. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice and the location was convenient for airport and city. Near elk and beaver lakes too.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. It was very comfortable and the price was good for the area. Very quiet room, comfortable beds. Nice spot to get away from the hustle of the main tourist areas in Victoria, but not too far away. Doesn't include breakfast, but the attached restaurant provided a great breakfast option. Would stay again.

I saw pictures online and was a little hesitant, but the hotel was booked and paid for by my employer. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in. My room was very large and renovated. Super clean bathroom. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was fast, cheap and delicious as well.

All hotels in Victoria were sold out so we found a double queen bed at the Howard Johnson Suites. The room was just a standard room, clean but beds were quite soft. Our toilet was blocked but was fixed quickly by hotel staff. The guy at the front desk was not friendly and insisted on charging an extra $100 deposit... More

Good Day I am so very sorry about the service your received at check-in, as this not the normal service the desk clerk is known for. I wish to apologize that the extra $100.00 was not properly clarified for the ability to charge restaurant, lounge or telephone charges to your guest room. I am so glad to hear that the... More
