I think this is the first review I have written on this site but felt it was time to give back a little after benefiting from the reviews when I have booked travel.
My wife and I were recently in Victoria for the weekend and stayed here given the location (we had an event at Elk Lake) and the rate.
While the location is a little outside of the city core, it is an easy drive / bus into the main area for those that are touring the area. The new Uptown Mall is across the street and offers lots of shopping etc. It's a quick drive up the highway to Elk Lake or out to Sooke etc.
We had a 1 bedroom suite on the top floor and, while a little smaller than some other 1 bedroom suites we have stayed in at other hotels, it was well equipped, clean, and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. We didn't experience any of the noise that other reviews have mentioned - it was very quiet for us. We didn't explore any of the amenities on the property so cant comment on those.
The big advantage was the rate - imo, it can't be beaten for this type of accommodation in the area. Also, all of the staff we met were very friendly and helpful (a big plus).
Victoria is a great town to visit, especially in the Spring through late Summer / early Fall. Having lived there for a few years earlier in the 90's, it was great to go back.
