“Great location!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

I was given a last minute assignment to travel to Victoria for work. I only had 2 weeks to book my hotel and had to phone 5 different hotels before I found one that could accommodate me for the entire length of my stay. I was traveling by myself and had the evenings free so wanted to make sure I was in the harbor area - this hotel is in a fantastic location! Everything is in walking distance and, even driving, its very easy to get around. Breakfast was decent, however, it did get a little boring by the 4th day. The decor is a little dated but the beds are comfy and I always appreciate pillow options! :) Staff was friendly and very helpful with restaurant recommendations. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families - you seem to get a lot for your money.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get a harbor view! Beautiful!

Stayed at this hotel recently and had a great time. Comfortable sleep and generally one of the best places to be within Victoria. Obviously the price is something that draws you in but the extra amenities are always a great bonus to the stay. I would recommend staying here.

My husband and I recently stayed in this hotel for three nights and were very impressed, not only by its location, but also by the ammenities included in the price. The rate was comparable to other hotels in the area, but included free parking and breakfast. Also, the room had a small kitchen which was useful. The breakfast was especially appreciated by me as I cannot eat any gluten so usually skip free breakfasts...this hotel had gluten-free bread and cereal available! The room itself had a very comfortable bed, great pillows and a wonderful shower. The only negative was there is no a/c and that weekend happened to be very warm..the only alternative is to leave the balcony door open which we weren't comfortable doing as we were on the second floor.
We would definitely stay here again, but probably not in the summer!

What a wonderful review. We are so appreciative that you have taken the time to share your thoughts with us, and even more pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay.

I am happy to hear that you were able to take advantage of the gluten-free cereals and breads that we provide in our complimentary breakfast. We always ensure that we have these specialty items readily available for our guests, along with the yogurt, fresh fruit and hot eggs which are also part of our daily breakfast offering.

I am sorry that you found the room to be warm during your stay. As our climate is typically mild with a steady ocean breeze, only a few hotels in Victoria actually provide Air Conditioning. All of our guest rooms do have a private balcony and fans are also provided in every guest room.

I trust that otherwise your visit to Victoria was a success and certainly look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

As previous reviewers have said the location is great for the inner harbour. We had a balcony which was a nice touch, but it faced the back of the hotel and not the harbour which was very dissapointing. The room was excellent and staff friendly. Car parking was underground and access to lift was great. Breakfast was very adequate and overall we had a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour facing room up high.

We took the ferry from Port Angeles, and this location was incredibly close to the dock. The area is very walkable. It is also near a BigRedBus stop (so leave the car behind). The hotel has a friendly and helpful staff, nice complimentary breakfast, wonderful kitchenette, and a great balcony overlooking a garden and the harbor (great for relaxing and people watching). Our daughter even took a swim in the outdoor pool (mid-Sept). We highly recommend this hotel!

Thank you for sharing your comments about your visit with us. I am glad that you found our location in the Inner Harbour to be central (and within walking distance) to all of the main attractions. And you are right - we are literally right around the corner from the Seattle and Port Angeles ferries. I am so happy to hear that you and your daughter enjoyed our seasonal outdoor heated pool and were able to take advantage of the beautiful September weather we have been experiencing. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to see you again in the future.

This Best Western hotel proves size and age do not matter when it is kept up well. Our room with a king bed and kitchenette was small, but was well laid out and cozy. It had everything we needed, was extremely clean, and everything was in good working condition. We also had a nice view of the harbour and garden in front, but be prepared for some traffic noise. It was also very convenient to have the complimentary breakfast. The staff were all very friendly. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

This hotel is within walking distance of the parliament buildings, the museum, Fisherman's Warf (buy 6 fish for $5 to feed the seals!), grocery stores and the bus depot (Pacific Coach Lines will take you to Vancouver via the ferry). I booked a suite that had a great kitchen with lots of cooking equipment. Breakfast was included. Very friendly staff!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the harbour.

Thank you for staying with us!

And what a great tip regarding feeeding the seals at Fisherman's Wharf - which is just a short walk from our hotel. I think the seals really appreciate it too!! There are a number of great take-away places to eat there and plenty of houseboats to tour (those for sale that is). We are glad to hear you enjoyed the conveniences of the kitchen that was included with the one bedroom suite, and appreciate your compliments on the service of our staff.

We hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to Victoria.
