Thank you for the review. Yes, our cleaning staff do a great job keeping the hotel spotless. And the location, free breakfast, parking and wifi are very well received by all guests. Although the building was built in 1982, we do keep updating many aspects of the hotel from room furnishings to the breakfast room. In fact, our next project...

The Embassy Inn was just perfect in every way. We arrived 3 hours early but were able to check in, unload are luggage and park our car (FREE!) to get an early start on our exploration of the Inner Harbour and visit the Museum. Ron at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The Embassy is located within easy walking...

Very clean and comfortable, exceptionally quiet (even on Halloween night!) and conveniently located near many downtown attractions including the Royal BC Museum and the COHO ferry to Port Angeles. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our cat also enjoyed her stay. Wonderful hot breakfast included. We will be back.

Nice large room with small balcony and sliding door. Across street from the Legislative bldg., walking distance to restaurants, Fisherman's wharf, museums and shopping. Wonderful included breakfast. Our room could have needed some updating in bathroom, especially needed more shelf space for personal toiletries

Room was spacious and clean. Staff very helpful. Location close by the ferry and downtown was perfect for us. Breakfast was outstanding in quality and variety. Best we've had so far. If we return to Victoria, this is where we'll stay.

12 couples of our Square Dance club recently stayed here and had a wonderful weekend! Comfortable beds, excellent service and good breakfast. We arrived on the early ferry from Port Angeles and they had room to take all our bags so we could go off and explore. We will be back!

I had stayed here overnight once before, alone. This time my wife and I stayed three nights. Everyone from the reception to the cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. The parking was free, as was the breakfast,( though this was not as varied as we would have liked. Why do so few hotels offer granola or muesli?) The beds were...

When booking our hotel we kept coming back to the embassy. The price was right, included breakfast and parking. We ended up calling the hotel to book directly. They were able to price match what I saw online and upgraded us to a king sized bed. The hallway wasn't upgraded but the room was with more updated decor. The bathroom...
