For a family of 3 to 5 people, this motel offers decent rooms at a reasonable price with a good breakfast included. At the prices charged, a couple could do better in downtown Victoria.
Since it is located at the intersection of two very busy roads, and is not far from the highway, this is a true motel geared primarily to car convenience. It is not, as the photos might suggest, a destination even though the motel sits right on the Gorge waterway, and it has a row of delightful cabins on the shore. Those cabins are expensive, and there is a busy bridge a stone's throw away. Many of the ordinary rooms face the busy roads. The rest face the parking, as with any motel. The pool is small and poorly located.
Instead, the motel's main assets are its reasonably priced kitchenettes, and a large and sunny breakfast room that has space for several big families to hunker down for the included breakfast. The staff were very pleasant on both our visits and they kept the breakfast room well-stocked and clean. The kitchenette rooms feature a big kitchen, two double beds, a sofa bed, and the extra floor space every family needs.
If you fancy an evening stroll, across the bridge there is a pleasant park and sea wall walk on the Gorge's opposite shore. Otherwise,the area around the motel has only suburban conveniences: an overpriced Chinese buffet up the street, submarine sandwich and pizza shops, a convenience store, and a Canadian Tire superstore.
The View Royal location is close enough to Victoria might make this a budget base of operations for a family on a car trip.
