“Exceptional value, service and location”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

The Embassy Inn is in an ideal location; a several minute walk to the harbour, Parliament Buildings, museum ect. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff (from the Reception Desk, Housekeepers to Dining Room) are friendly, courteous and exceptionally helpful. Our experiences in the Dining Room were consistent; varied menu, great food and good value. Looking forward to our return!!!

Have stayed at the Embassy several times. The location is good.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.
A hot breakfast served each morning was a great way to start our
day. (thank you Barbie)
Always find the staff friendly and helpful.

We found the Embassy Inn to be clean, comfortable and with some great perks - only one block from the harbour, free hot breakfast, free parking, free WiFi, but the best perk was 20% off the dining room at dinner. We stayed during some stormy weather in February and our holiday felt like a cruise ship when we didn't have to go out to find something to eat at night. The dining room is cozy and the menu had just about anything, although we stuck with the fish which was well prepared.

We have found the best place during our stays in Victoria. Great room, comfortable bed. Breakfast is a real treat! What a perfect location in downtown Victoria, just beside the Parliament bldg. and the harbour (and so many more attractions). What else would someone ask for. Free parking and WiFi. I just wish we'd have found this place sooner. We will be back for sure!

My family of 6 was treated to a great continental breakfast where the chef was on hand to "customize" your selection for the kids. Very pleasant and helpful staff,with a lot of good directions and places to enjoy.Our suite was large and clean ,with a nice view of harbor and Parliament building. The best location in town and well worth the stay at twice the price.No Joke. We will highly recommend this hotel to everybody.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and Quiet with 2 nice outside decks. The location is the best.Only one block...

I was in Victoria for a memorial service. Upon check-in the front desk clerk upgraded me to a king when he found out the nature of my visit. The room was quiet, clean, and very comfortable. Free parking, wifi, and a big breakfast, I couldn't have asked for more. You can walk to all the attractions and the downtown core. I will stay again on my next, happier visit.

Having stayed twice now at the Embassy Inn in Victoria, it can be no coincidence that the value remains excellent (although, admittedly, we have not travelled to Victoria at peak tourist price/season). Regardless, the staff were all uniformly friendly and helpful, the room impeccably clean, and the free high quality full breakfasts an extra perk. The only slight flaw was an in-room steam iron which was leaking water, but which was very promptly replaced with a non-leaking version. These attributes, along with the convenient-to-everything location, continue to make this property a superb value in my opinion.

Room Tip: ask for an upgrade if possible
