we needed a room last minute and ended up getting charged $160 for a night.

as soon as we walked in we were grossed out. the room was so hot and so small. the AC was broken so we had the window open and the traffic noise was incredibly loud. when we called front desk about AC they said they never claimed the room had AC. (the website does). didn't give us a discount.

the walls are so thin, we could hear what was going on next door (and I think you know what was going on next door).

avoid!!

I don't even think this place is much cheaper than the nicer hotels in victoria. unless you got an online deal.

Thank you for taking the time to write a small description of your stay. We do apologize if your stay did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, not all our rooms are equipped with air conditioning units and all our 3rd party reservation website as well as our personal one does not advertise it. Also, please keep in mind that it is now summer time, which is our busiest time of the year, so the rates are not as low as the winter time and that for most hotels around Victoria.

For what I paid I was expecting a second rate dump, just a place to sleep. Was I in for a surprise. Very nice, clean room. Had a little table, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and dishes. Nice flat screen tv, with plenty of channels. Service was excellent from friendly staff. The only reason I didn't give it a five was the broken air conditioner. No problem getting a fan though. Looking out the window I noticed several fans in different windows, so apparently they have no intentions of doing anything about the air conditioners. A real shame as I found no other faults.

Room Tip: The window above the broke air conditioners opens. I didn't notice until day I left.
