Needed a room at the last minute while in Victoria, BC. Came across The Island Travellers Inn. I was checked in by James, when, after a minor issue with my room, found me a suitable one in the main floor. Room rates are very reasonable. The hotel is located on the edge of the city, making it very convenient. My only concerns were that the heat didn't work, and there was issued with the TV. Rooms are not made up daily, but after someone checks out. Given the size of my room and the location, I would stay here again. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Great parking, good location, somewhat clean. I woke up covered in bug bites, don't think it was bed bugs but something got me. Staff were friendly. Bed was comfortable. Good bang for your buck but if you value cleanliness and peace of mind, I'd look elsewhere.

Airport shuttle service has this hotel on the list, so it can drop you off by the door, which is very convenient. I came earlier the check in time, but a welcome and pleasant administrator allowed me to get in the room. I highly appreciate this gesture, as it was a long trip with delayed flights from East coast. There is a coffee machine and tea supplies in the room, which was spacious btw.

All around filthy. I’m 100% sure they don’t clean the rooms or change the bedding between customers. The bedding was disgusting. The bathroom had leftover hair in the tubs. The rugs, walls, phones and pretty much all surfaces were equally filthy.

DO NOT SAVE YOUR 10 bucks to get a room at this dive.
they are one of the hotels that have housed people during the “pandemic” so their is an eclectic group of folks hanging around
there is no service and the 3 rooms that I was in were all condemned rooms or definitely should not have been sold.
just to let you know if you are looking for a budget room this is not a room it is a ghetto

after a very long days drive and settling into the first room I discovered some wet spots on the floor. then about a 1 x 6 ’ area of wet carpet under the window from the wet and windy weather and oh dear.....the building leaks. sorry. we’ll move you into another room. great. not
no heat in this one. so a small electric fan heater to keep my feet warm and an early bed. and early rise 5 am and while the coffee maker is busy the power goes out. just my room. they get it back on. 3 more time I must walk to the main desk to have the power returned
then. the internet goes down as I am busy at my work. =
ok. shut it down and get going. its 7:30 am. I was planning on working until 10
grab a shower pack and go. the power goes out AGAIN111.
another trip to the front dest and yet. a 3rd room so I can have a shower with light my room is still in the dark
there was no compensation offered
this place needs to be reported to the health authorities
which is my next letter
sick and tired of getting manipulated by people who have no integrity and are in the market for taking money in exchange for their product or service.
which is then not fulfilled as agreed upon
this is my 3rd terrible review in less then 2 weeks.
its a nasty uncaring world out there

This establishment claims that they are smoke free, yet when we were checking in, the fire alarm kept going off, I questioned it and the reply I got was “yeah that happens all the time we pretend like we can’t hear it”. I booked with Agoda which is actually under booking.com and never had a problem. On the app it said they were pet friendly, and then at the front desk we were told it wasn’t. It was already really stressful and they did not offer free cancellation, instead I was just handed a phone number and told to call them. They weren’t going to deal with the situation, they had surveillance cameras and should be able to pick up sound. If a hotel claims to be smoke free but the front desk doesn’t even care about the alarm going off and said it happens all the time but they are willing to make their customers stay a living nightmare and disregard fire safety standards??? How are they still in business in downtown Victoria?

The room was very old and completely worn out. The bed moved horribly each time one of us turned over. The filth in the corners and behind the headboard was just unbelievable. We had a jacuzzi tub, which was filthy and scary. There was no shower stall, just a nozzle by the tub, so this meant standing in the open trying to get clean with one hand while washing with the other. There was no makeup light anywhere, so that was a real challenge. the coffee machine offering was minimal, with one coffee pod, two coffee mate packs and no artificial sweetener. We wanted to have a nightcap, a little scotch with ice. Alas, there was no ice. The desk said the machine was broken. This is seriously the worst hotel in which we have ever stayed. We have traveled worldwide, including Mexico and the UK and numerous hostels all over Australia ans New Zealand. This place beat any of them hands down for GROSS!

Absolutely horrible hotel. Poorly repaired holes in the walls, dust covered air vents, unwashed glass sliding door, mold in the bathroom, toilet paper not in a dispenser, loose toilet seat, broken thermostat with duct tape over it. Musty smell in hallways. Felt like I had bugs on me from just sitting on the bed. Absolutely terrible.

We came to this hotel after a long day with many hotels completely booked. The room was horrible, there was small blood marks on the sheets, the walls were dirty and no fire detector. We checked out right away. The tub was stained from having a tub mat there for too long, paint coming off the walls. There was even splatter from something on one of the chairs in the room. When we went to the front desk to check out, there were
Cockroaches on the desk. Completely disgusting. Will not be returning..

After we spoke to the guy at the desk, he mentioned that he is currently looking for a new job, and that the owners do not take care of place. This is definitely a health hazard and will be reported to B.C. hotel health and safety.

This place is simply appalling! We were given a room that was dirty, the linens were grey and dirty. We found a towel in the bathroom that had makeup smeared on it. We refused to take the room, so they showed us another one. Just as bad. The place should be condemned !
