Just a short walk from the Port Angeles ferry dock and downtown Victoria. The location couldn't be better. I loved having the kitchen area to prep the picnic basket for our adventures driving along the coast. The rooms are very comfortable, we had a king suite.

Very helpful staff. Practically next door to the RC Museum and we were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Parking was only $5 and they let us stay for several hours after checking out so we had time to visit the town. Pleasant room with a kitchen. I would definitely come to stay here again. There is...

We stayed here because of its proximity to the Seattle ferry and also the coach station. It is a short walk into the town centre, so within easy walking distance of attractions, eateries and bars. It is also right next door to the museum. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and, because our room was on the third floor (no... More

Wish we could have stayed longer. Value for money, spacious rooms with kitchen facilities, comfortable beds, well appointed. Handy to museum, harbour area, restaurants, bus station (that connects with the ferry) and car hire places. As mentioned the only disadvantage is the lack of an elevator to get bags up to your room. Very friendly and helpful reception staff.

Oh Helm's Inn.... When can I come back? When else can I enjoy your fantastic service (storing my luggage for hours before check-in). When else can I stay in that corner room (immaculate, with stove, frig, microwave, coffee pot)...

The suite was clean, spacious and the kitchen had a large fridge, hob and microwave. Check and check out were very quick and efficient. The hotel was really close to the inner harbour and all the restaurant. Access by car was easy and parking was cheap at $5 a night. It was good value for money.There was no noise at... More

I booked this because it was close to the ferry landing & didn't cost an arm & a leg. The room was spacious & clean. There was a kitchen if we wanted to do or own food, the bed was comfortable & the wifi was great for a hotel. The personnel was above & beyond nice & helpful. We checked... More

We are kind of picky travelers. No complaints here. Nice clean seems newly remodeled. We found this hotel was very nice and reasonable. No onsite restaurant, but not needed, restaurant and coffee close by. This place was a find for us. Wifi in room works great. Staff was very nice.

Our room was very spacious. It even had a well-equipped kitchenette with a full fridge. The hotel is located very close to all the action downtown, yet it is just tucked away in a quiet location away from all the tourist buzz. In the main lobby there is a library, sitting area and free coffee/tea. Travelers with mobility issues should... More
