My wife, daughter and I recently stayed several times in this hotel. It's location was very attractive as it is literally a 10 minute drive to Victoria International Airport.
This hotel will take dogs, which was a huge bonus (lovely walks in the nearby area) on our first stay.
Clean, quiet, perfectly functional for it's purpose of an over nighter. Encountered several front desk staff, all very friendly.
Location is just about 'downtown' Sidney, with a large groceries store a short walk away.
Traveler's tip: This hotel will allow you to park your vehicle for the duration of your absence (in our case a week) as opposed to the much more expensive option of leaving it at the airport.
Rate quoted was $4.00 per day (Vic airport parking comes in at $15.00 per day if I recall and a cab ride from this hotel to the airport is about $20.00 ; do the math...)
