“Peaceful rest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I stayed in the Coast Victoria Harbourside overnight after attending a lecture at the University of Victoria. As my wife had originally been scheduled to join me, I had booked a Superior room with a king bed and kept the room even though my wife was ill. The staff were helpful and friendly, the room was excellent, the bed was all I could have asked for and the coupons I got with the room more than paid for my breakfast which I had in the Blue Crab Room at a table overlooking the Inner Harbour. My only niggle was the parking charge.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have a better view.

My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights over New Year's. We were very pleased with the rooms and the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room & bathroom were both very spacious and clean. The decor in the rooms was a bit boring.

My only complaint about this hotel is surrounding the parking and pet fees. Upon checkout, I was given a bill for $143 to cover pet and parking for 4 nights.

The parking fee was $12/day. While this may not sound like much, it becomes immediately evident that there is street parking everywhere surrounding the hotel, and on weekends, it is free. Unfortunately, we arrived late Friday evening & did not discover until the next morning that the virtually unlimited street parking was in fact free. I would recommend for the sake of fairness at minimum a reduced parking rate on weekends.

I also found the $20/day pet fee to be excessive. Most midrange hotels that I have stayed at or looked at charge a flat pet rate of $50 or so (some even $25). This makes far more sense than charging a daily fee. The hotel only cleans the room once after the pet leaves, regardless of how many nights the pet stays, so I fail to see the need for a "per day" pet charge. If the hotel for some reason disagrees and feels that a "per day" pet charge is necessary, at least providing a maximum pet charge would seem more logical and fair.

We were quite pleased with the rooms and would certainly stay here again if traveling without a car or a pet. However, if returning to Victoria again with our dog and auto, we will most likely look for another hotel in which we will not have to pay $143 in pet and parking fees upon checkout.

Great value for money with very helpful,friendly staff. There is a shuttle available to take you to town if you dont want to make the ten minute walk. The view from the room was fantastic and there was a real balcony to step out onto to see the water. There is also a beautiful view from the restaraunt and bar.

Just spent 12 knights at this hotel whilst visiting family over Christmas.
The hotel reception hotel reception staff could not have been more helpful.
There was a small problem with our allocated room upon arrival - this was very quickly dealt with by a very helpful member of staff called Vladimir and rectified by a complimentary upgrade.
The room was very large with excellent furnishings and a very comfortable bed.
Will definitely use this hotel again when in Victoria.

Room Tip: If possible request a harbour view

My partner and I like to travel with our dog, who loves road trips, and it can be difficult to find a nice place to stay that welcomes dogs. This place was great. We had a nice, comfortable, quiet room, and our dog was welcome. The view of the harbor is great, and there are nice walkways along the water. There is an indoor / outdoor pool, which is nice to use in the winter.

Great to stay here when in Victoria ANY time of year.
Inner harbour rooms are our favourite. Dogs are allowed, kids love the pool, we love the martinis!
Great food both in restaurant and rooms service. The bathrooms are the only thing I could complain about. Tiny tubs, cracks here and there, and no fan.

Room Tip: Take the harbour view!

Stayed here on a business trip and just loved it. Great staff, AWESOME restaurant, comfortable beds, well appointed rooms (and bathrooms) and an awesome view of the outer harbour. The complimentary shuttle to anywhere in downtown came in very handy in inclement weather, but most everything is walking distance.

Room Tip: Go for the upgrade to the Harbour View room, it's worth the added money.
