“Great Hotel Wonderful Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

What a beautiful hotel just minutes from the ferry. The hotel is very well maintained and the rooms well appointed. Plenty of plugins for computers and battery charging.

The bed was comfy and everything was just great!

The hotel offers a discount to those that eat in the restaurant at the hotel and it was a 25%, not sure if you always get that.

The staff is great, cannot say enough about how good and helpful they are.

There is a garage and a separate fee for using it.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as we were here to take my 10 year old son to the museum and to sight see....... This hotel is in walking distance to pretty much everything on the harbour and then some ....... Nice clean rooms and the beds are comfortable . The things we didn't like was it had no air conditioning and we were street side so it was noisy and we could hear people talking quite clearly in the room next to us at 5:30 am . There was a pub / restaurant just down the hall from our room which was nice . You can order from this place and take it back to your room if your to tired from sight seeing. This hotel is very reasonably priced compared to a lot of the hotels in the same vicinity and the underground parking is relatively cheap.......... The pet charge for my small dog was kind of expensive ... $20 a day . The price and location of this hotel exceeds any of the complaints that we have. About it . One more thing.......... We booked a wale watching tour thru this hotel with Eagle Wing Tours and they are excellent , I highly recommend going with this company. We followed a pod of killer whales for a while ...... It was amazing!!!!!!!

The Goods

- Room was nice and clean
- My room's tub had jets. That was a pleasant surprise
- Front desk staff was super friendly. She even remembered me when I checked out so it took all of 10 seconds
- Location is great. Within walking distance of the Legislature, Museum, and Inner Habour
- In room amenities included fridge, microwave and coffee maker (I had a Queen room)

Not so good

- Does not have A/C. It wasn't hot when I went but it could get very warm in the dead of summer. There was a fan in the closet.
- Workout room is just a bike, treadmill, and a pair of dumbbells
- Pool is tiny. Really only suitable for kids.
- In room coffee not so good. Not sure if the pouch wasn't designed for the coffee maker or the coffee was just weak. Coffee is also usually available in the lobby.

We stayed at Quality Inn, Victoria in June. The location was OK. The hotel is clean. The rooms were large, nice, and clean. The Internet connection was fast. We had to pay for parking. No breakfast was provided. The elevator was out of service on the day we left. However, the Thai lady officer helped us take the bags from the the third floor to the lobby. Thank you very much.

Super clean rooms, always saw staff cleaning, location can't be beat. Short walk to harbour, fisherman's wharf, lots of great whale watching tours nearby. Great in room, organic coffee/machine. helpful, attentive staff!

We booked all rooms through the Choice Hotels' website (the very first time) for our 10 day vacation. This hotel was by far the worst. We were assigned a room, a corner closet room, literally. When we first stepped out of the elevator, the hall way appeared to be under some kind of renovation. We found our room hidden at the far end corner. I had to try the key card several times to get the door opened. The room is incredibly small. The closet door would not open at first; once opened, it blocked the entry to the bathroom. Inside the closet, we found one luggage rack, one small fridge (yes a fridge) and on top of the fridge, a fan (yes, a fan). We had to find a spot between the TV chest and the small desk to set the luggage rack. We could not sit at the desk because there is no room to pull the chair out. We had to set the other suitcase on top of the fridge to pack and unpack. The fan had to go on the small desk top because there is where the electric outlet is (after we unplugged the desk light). The desk is also where the coffee maker is. The entire room has two more electric outlets which are in the bathroom. We had to charge our laptop and phones by taking turns (you can forget about charging the IPADs). The floor light does not work. We found two more pillows in the closet and they had some sort of medicine smell to it. Since it is a Quality Inn, I did not have very high expectation and thought it was the norm for Victoria Island hotels until the day we checked out. We were told by the manager for a small fee, they could have moved us to a bigger room (bait and switch?). The manager was not helpful and informed us pretty much this is the type of room we could expect to get since we booked through the Choice Hotel’s website. During our 10 day stays at various hotels that we booked through Choice Hotels, we had always a decent room. All stays were incident free except one (front desk called us at 2:30 AM by mistakes) but the hotel manager made good on it. Fellow travelers beware of this hotel.

The hotel was located in the heart of Victoria, you could walk to the Harbour, China Town, Empress Hotel, bus stops, Greyhound bus terminal and Parliament Buildings.
The hotel room was spacious with separate bedroom and living area with sofa and kitchen.
The only problem was there are stairs to the first floor, so you have to carry your suitcases up about 7 steps. The lady booking us in helped us with the suitcases, she was very nice and helpful. I would recommend the hotel especially for the great location. We only had to walk a block to see the Victoria Day parade on Douglas St.

Room Tip: Ask for a bedroom suite for extra room, if there are more than 2 of you, the sofa is a bed.

Dear dance1942,

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay and for pointing out our great location! It sounds like you stayed in on of our One Bedroom Suites which are located on the 1st floor.

As you mentioned, there are some stairs to negotiate in our lobby to get to the mezzanine level where the elevator and 1st floor rooms are located. Our front desk team are on hand 24 hours/day to help guests with their luggage if needed, of course.

Thank you again for your kind words. We hope to see you again!

Sincerely,

Laura Caceres
Front Office Manager
