Great hotel great staff. I was selling a house back In Ontario during my stay. The staff couldn’t do enough to help. I recommend this place close to everything and clean. Fair price as well. Room was small. Victoria has lots of homeless.

Pansy50, Congratulations of 56 years. Thank you for your review. I will stop by the Hotel front desk and thank the staff personally for you.

Basic room, fairly small, queen bed which was immaculate and incredibly comfortable. Short walk to anywhere in downtown Victoria from the hotel. Breakfast was simple, but good, and included in the price. I will be telling other people about it!
