I travel to Victoria frequently for business and have stayed at this hotel several times. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable. They all have mini fridges and microwaves so it's super convenient if you want to eat a simple breakfast or dinner in your room. There is a restaurant in the hotel and though they don't deliver room...

Sara White, We appreciate you taking the time to review Howard Johnson Hotel and Suites on TripAdvisor. We take great pride in our location. We are a little bit out of town (12 minute drive; 20 minute bus ride), but as you mentioned, we are right next to Elk/Beaver Lake which is a wonderful park for the nature enthusiast. We...

Reviewed August 20, 2016 via mobile

I frequent this hotel for business on a regular basis. The van drivers are pleasant and helpful and the front desk staff are great. The rooms are basic but well appointed and roomy. I love that they have bicycles for use and give us passes to the recreation complex a block away. The Provincial park is a short walk also....

I was so thrilled with my stay at the MOJO when I had to leave my home due to a flood. The room was clean, the staff so friendly, plenty of parking, good variety at the hotel, close to the shopping centre, rec. centre, Elk/Beaver Lake. Bikes are available (to rent I think) to explore the area... Even if you...

Very reasonable rates for a comfortable, clean and well maintained hotel on the outskirts of Victoria. A very nice pool area for summer travellers. Perfect if you are departing from either the airport or the ferry terminal. We were even able to print our boarding passes the night before. The front desk staff was very helpful and the in house...

The hotel itself is nice, especially for value. The best thing is that it's close to Butchart Gardens, and just next door to Sannich Commonwealth Place where you can get excellent swimming facilities.

My wife and I ate there a week ago. The service is great, good selection and great food. It is a favorite spot of many Victorians as the waitresses greeted them like old friends. The meal came quickly and was eaten at about the same speed by us hungry travellers
