The JBI (as locals call it) is a great boutique property just a few minutes walk from the inner harbour/ferry/wharf, near Parliament, the Royal BC museum and on the edge of a number of beautiful neighborhoods. It is just 3 blocks (a 5 minute walk)...More
We stayed here one night and that was the only problem we had. I would have loved staying another night or two. This is an older, quaint hotel so if you are looking for a modern soulless place, you might want to look elsewhere.
Actually very close to the harbour area (maybe an easy 10 minute walk), but away from the crowds and noise. Ate dinner and breakfast here and no complaints, no lines and great food! The room was small but this is an older hotel and has...More
We have enjoyed many stays at the JBI over the years: always clean, always friendly, always comfortable. The rates are extremely reasonable as well. But the heart of this hotel lies in its staff. This past visit we were especially impressed by two young people...More

No air conditioning. Rooms have fans and the windows open. Victoria seldom gets hot enough for air conditioning. It's hardly ever humid. As the temperature goes up, the humidity goes down. Temperature drops rapidly at sunset. It's a very comfortable climate. It rarely goes above 30C/90F and there is usually a breeze off the ocean that moderates. I never missed air conditioning at the James Bay Inn or when I lived in the city for 10 years.
