Okay... I am usually not the one to complain but this place is a God-forsaken hellhole! I have NEVER seen a worse place to stay at. And I mean it literally. This place is a health hazard and should have been shut down months ago. 1) It's very dirty, plain and simple. At 160 bucks a night I don't expect much but I do expect the room to be clean. The room wasn't obviously dirty but it was gross - the carpet hadn't been vacuumed for ever and the room stank. The decor and furniture are from a bad 1970s hook-up motel. The place stinks of weed and it feels unsafe. Lots of dodgy people in and around the property. 2) Worst of all - we had a live mouse in our room. The mouse woke us up middle of the night eating a snack we had left out on the desk, and we ended up spending the rest of the night in the car. Absolutely disgusting. 3) I can't believe the city tolerates this. This place is an absolute wreck. I am utterly disgusted and grossed out by my stay there. 4). Upon complaining to the front desk staff member we were assured that a manager would call us regarding a refund - never happened. . 5) for 50 to 100 bucks more you can get a nice clean room in a good hotel. This place should have a sign that reads: we only charge you 50 a night but stay at your own risk. Then it might be fair. Instead, they charge 160 a night and just continue doing business like it's normal to have mice infestations in the 21st century Canadian city hotel. 6) a minor thing: cockroaches in the bathroom. 7) the ONLY redeeming feature of this pile of dung is that it is very close to all attractions in Victoria. If you are a bakpacker who doesn't mind staying in a sh*thole as long as it's close to town, then MAYBE you could consider it. But again - why would you pay 160 a night in this hell? Utterly appalling!

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

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.

When we arrived the receptionist looked like we were bothering him we are there. No smile, we barely heard what he's saying. The rooms are big but dirty. Microwave wasn't cleaned, neither the bathtub. Moreover, one towel was really really dirty!! Unwashes? It was also really cold during the night. The heating was NOT working!

We booked the hotel on a 3rd Party app and stayed for one night, it was myself and 2 buds and we stayed after our hike along the Juan de fuca trail so we needed a place close to the breweries and restaurants downtown! The gentleman who helped us at the front desk was wonderful and friendly and the service was good as was the price for the room that we booked...we had 2 king size beds...we used the secure underground parking and went up to the room...the room was fairly typical for an older hotel with outdated decor and the like...the bathroom and room were fairly dirty and could have used a good rub down, especially the tile in the shower as that was quite dirty. Also it could use new caulking around the tub!! The shower it self was good and the shower head was nice! I did like the AC unit as it cooled the room down very nicely as it had a wonderful white noise to it overnight!! The biggest bonus for this hotel was the location as it was a 3 min walk from Phillips Brewing!
