Hotel with free parking

We will be renting a car for a 3 day stay in Victoria later this month. Any recommendations for a hotel that offers free parking? or is a B&B a better choice? Would like to stay in the $125 range (with taxes). Do any hotels offer a free shuttle to the airport?

Your budget is pretty low. Especially when you want to include the taxes. Our tax is HIGH, and the end of June can be pretty busy, as the kids are out of school around that time.

You don't really need a car if you are staying in the downtown area, as the city is quite walkable, and there is a good transit system. But with the car, and wanting free parking, and want to stay in that budget, I think you will need to look at places like the Travelodge, Sandman, or Accent Inn.

I just plunked in the last three nights of June into Travelodge, and they don't even have rooms available for those nights! July 1st is Canada Day as well, so it will busy for that reason also.

Accent Inn, June 27th, with checkout 3 nights later had availability, and they were around 100.00 a night. BEFORE taxes.

Good luck with your search, and book something quick!

The Victoria Regent seem to include parking in their rate. You don't need a car as Victoria is very small and easy to walk around. You might want to rent a car for one of those days for a day trip.

Your choices for getting to the airport about 40 minutes away are a cab about $50, public transit about an hour and $2.50 pp or AKAL Shuttle, about $20.

Edited to add: I missed the nightly rate. Oh boy. As Joan mentions, with a car, you may fund yourself in a hotel along The Gorge or further out of the city. But without a car, you could apply that saved miney to a hitel near the Inner Harbour.

If you choose to stay at a B&B, your room rate will usually include not only free parking, but also free WiFi and great breakfasts. Most hotels will charge you extra for all or some of these items. If you choose a hotel, always ask if these are included in the room rate when you call to make the reservation. If you don't ask, they usually won't tell you until check-out time.
