The free bikes are super way to see the city and that isn't your cup of tea then will given you a free drop off and pick up in one of their cool classic antique VW vans.Rooms are small but retro...

Friend found this hotel and I was pleasantly surprised. It's in a great location in Victoria, not too far outside downtown, and the free VW combie shuttle bus's were a nice surprise. Staff were really helpful and friendly. It looks like it was once a motel and it's been done up with IKEA furniture so it feels a bit youth...

It's like having a sleepover at IKEA!... Cute, colorful, fun, festive... And a little bit loud = truckers making delivers?.. Or road contractors?.. With a pre-dawn "Good Morning" at a noontime volume. Everyone is good, and kind, and the ride on the vintage VW bus that shuttles us to and from downtown was sweet! And "The Ruby" restaurant is a...

My family with 2 young children stayed here overnight. The kids loved the heated pool and water slide. Ok, my husband loved the water slide, too. The staff was exceedingly pleasant and helpful, offering great breakfast recommendations and helping keep the kids entertained with suggestions. All the extra touches--LPs, typewriters, Wii games and ping pong, and the shuttle were great....

Stayed at Hotel Zed during a trip to Victoria. My kids were fascinated to use things they had only heard about...rotary phones (my son insisted on dialing every time) vinyl record players, the Jenga game in the lobby. The pool was great, and the Zedinator (the waterslide) was really fun! Our room was spotless, the front desk staff were friendly...

We had a great time at Hotel Zed. They've done a great job of converting a motel into a fun, hip place. We tried to take advantage of all of the free eclectic offerings; writing letters on old typewriters, taking the free VW van shuttle downtown, and dialling the rotary phones. We also really enjoyed the free bikes they have...

We stayed at the ZED for 8 nights during a softball tournament in August. I have to say we weren't quite sure about this place, but it turned out to be fun.

What a cool place. This is a formerly 60ish era motel with retro décor from the 60's and 70's. Noise was not too bad considering the outdoor entrance on the second floor. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and allowed me to leave my rental car in the lot while I took a trip downtown for a few hours. If...
