When our original hotel booking had a lacrosse team spending the weekend, we decided to seek another place. This Howard Johnson is near "The Gorge" area of Victoria, is quite clean, has a friendly staff, and is on the way to Butchart Gardens, about 20 minutes north. If you come to Victoria with a car, it's much less expensive to stay out of the main "tourist trap" as the locals call the downtown area. Of course, they have lovely hotels down there . . . but this is so convenient, has free internet, warm and friendly staff . . . so I recommend it as an option for those a bit more concerned about the price of accommodations. With the US dollar going for all of $1.03 Canadian as of June, 2007, it makes getting deals harder. We liked this place just fine and found convenient parking downtown when needed. We also enjoyed getting off the beaten path and watching hang gliders, kite boarders, and dog walkers at Beacon Hill Park.
