I travel to Victoria on business a few times a year and always stay near Dt Inner Harbour. There are many hotels to choose from and I prefer the smaller high quality over large chain hotels. I wasn't sure what to expect when booking here but it was a really pleasant surprise. The buildings are older, but have a charm to them and the rooms are large , spotless and updated. The bed was very comfortable and I was so glad that the AC was quiet! If you enjoy quirky but nice places to stay you will enjoy the Helm's Inn. The price for size and quality of the room was great and the local is perfect! You are just a short walk from the inner harbour and other wonderful places to see. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to others. Front desk staff is down to earth friendly and efficient.
