“Very nice, but a liitle cramped.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

A short distance north of Victoria, the hotel is extremely clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel sits fairly close to the main highway, so noise from morning traffic may be an issue at times. Temperatures were in the low- to mid-80's the week we were there and there are no air conditioners, which is about the only shortcoming of the hotel. Our room had two queen beds and four people, so it was a little cramped for space. Parking in the upper units close to the office is very tight and made for small cars.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

The inn is convenient being between the ferry at Sidney and Victoria. We had a single room with twin beds. Very modest. It was very cramped for two persons and luggage and close to the driveway so it was noisy at times and it was close to a major road. Parking is tight. It was extremely warm at night which is unusual and there was no A/C. That being said: The staff was very friendly, prices good, and it was very clean. Lots of hanging pretty flowers. I would return again as I understand the larger rooms are much nicer. It was a safe environment and I felt comfortable staying there. There are restaurants, shops and parks close by with easy access to Victoria and major roads.

The room at Cherry Tree was very very clean. The staff was also very friendly and responsive when we needed help. The room definitely had a much better "vibe" than most motels. Attractive floors, bedspreads and nicely painted walls made the room comfortable to be in. We were here to visit the University of Victoria so the location was perfect.

On the downside, the beds are very uncomfortable (very hard) and the soap/shampoo rations were downright meager. I laughed when they didn't replenish our tiny bottle of shampoo the second day. It is right by the highway, but we slept with a fan on and didn't notice the sound at all.

Overall the price was right and I would stay here again.

Arrived at the inn which was on the outskirts of Victoria, about a 10 minute drive to downtown. We were led to our room by a very friendly gentleman. Layout of inn is a bunch of separate, small buildings, like duplexes. Upon entering, we took notice of the modern and unique decor, which was a nice change from other motels in this price range. Only complaint was the size; it was quite small for what we paid, especially the shower. Had a mini fridge and coffee maker. The room was very well-maintained. Another slight issue was the room was quite hot. There was a standing fan in the room, but it is a bit noisy. Overall, enjoyed the feel of the room, and the service, and would probably stay here again, but might spend a little extra for a larger room.

Last year we stayed at the Cherry Tree Inn in a single room which was comfortable, but small. For our 2014 visit, we booked a "Junior suite" which proved to be excellent! A bedroom with a queen bed, plus a living/dining area with two queen beds, bathroom with tub/shower, fully equipped kitchen with full size refrigerator, mini-grill, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster and a large array of dishes and cutlery.

We could really make ourselves and our pet at home in this suite and were so pleased with the amenities. Granite counter, stainless steel kettle and toaster, a large table and comfy bed. Lots of hot water, too.

Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful with anything we needed.

I notice some negative reviews, which I think date to a time before the current owners.

We are so happy we chose to return to the Cherry Tree Inn for a 2 night stay this year.

The double queen room unit is $95 including a kitchenette, wifi, flat screen tv and free parking next to my own unit.

Hard wood floor, supplies and decor are neat and modern.

The inn is 15 min hwy drive from Victoria with easy access to hwy. traffic noise is not noticeable.

Owner couple is friendly and available; office closes at midnight unlike some owner operated inns that close early.

I felt comfortable during my stay in May so I'm staying there again in June.

Did stay only for a single night before morning flight from Victoria International. The motel/hotel was nice and everything worked perfectly. The price was good as well. I would not hesitate to stay for a couple more nights.
