When we pulled up outside the Surf Motel I thought 'OMG', what have we done here! A 1960's building on a busy road. Then you walk inside and sure enough it was a left over from the 60's.
In truth, it was brilliant to find somewhere real retro with features kept in situ since the family bought the property in 1959. My disappointment on arrival was soon replaced by the joy of the Motel's really super friendly staff, the large rooms with every facility you could possibly need and how clean the place was.
The view of James Bay and the mountains beyond was amazing from all the rooms and it was only a short walk to the centre of Victoria. Overall the Surf Motel, Victoria was a real pleasure to stay in, cheaper than larger hotels in the area but far, far more than first expected. I would seriously recommend this experience if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Vancouver Island's capital. My family and I intend to use the Motel next time we visit our folks on the Isand.
