Visited Victoria for a couple of days and stayed here based on good reviews. What a great surprise seeing it’s showing as a 3 star hotel. The rooms are newly renovated, free breakfast and free parking. It’s right across the parliament building and location can’t be beat. Would definitely stay again. Breakfast staff were amazing and friendly. Lots of things to do in area and a 5 min walk to downtown.

Good,clean and basic hotel with a very good location. Good value here for the room rates they ask for a property in the Inner Harbour Victoria. Tired and uninspired room where they serve a continental breakfast that is a carb fest. Staff were all very friendly Parking is free It's a reasonable choice

Thank you for your review of your stay back in November. Sorry to hear the free breakfast didn't meet your level of expectation. Many of our guests are appreciative of the offerings. we are unable to provide the usual eggs, meat and hash browns due to the current pandemic. Once things get better and travel restrictions are lifted, we will get back to our awesome breakfast. Hope to see you again sometime.
