You can appreciate all the small details and efforts that went into resurfacing this old motel. Some additional unique and appreciated "bells and whistles" of this hotel were free rental bikes, longboards, vinyl records, classic board games, and a zippy water slide.

Super nice people work there but when I complained about the smelly room the first time nothing happened -tried again on the next trip and found the same smell problem in a different room. I expected some comment back from management that time but nothing other than the automated email. The shower vents into the room so no doubt it...

We are Victorians who visited Motel Zed for the first time yesterday for lunch. First of all, it seems to still be the old Blue Ridge Motel it once was, but with a new paint job. The coffee shop, and it is just that, is called Ruby, and too expensive for what you get. We didn't have any wine, but...

My friend and I chose to take our kids here for a few days and the kids loved it and the adults thought it was kitschy fun but not overwhelming. I can't really rate this compared to a high class hotel as that's not what this is so I didn't expect it. For a motel it's about the best I've...

We decided to take a over night trip to Victoria and came across this hotel. We're very happy we did. It's a great price with great amenities. A nice pool with a water slide (aka The Zedinantor) and a great "small" restaurant attached to the library. Also a great shuttle that takes you to your location with selected pick up...

This place is not even close to 5 star, but it is clean, fun, cool and the staff, including the maintenance staff, house keeping and front desk staff were all amazing. The vibe is so positive and the price so reasonable, that you feel you are getting more than you pay for. It is an old style motel fixed up...

Restaurant now open, service fast and friendly......I just had coffee, juice and toast, but on looking around portions looked substantial ( looked like lots of hungry men) Right on...

My relaxing weekend at Hotel Zed was fantastic. I arrived on a stormy Friday in February looking for a place to relax, read, layabout, and generally hide from work. It was great. As a child of the 60's, I loved the bright colours, the decor touches like a typewriter (it worked! I typed up a postcard), rotary dial phone (my...

My 10 year old and I stayed here for two nights and it was like living in Austin Powers flat for a holiday! Ping pong lounge with Wii, mini disco room, board games everywhere, comfy room and beds, it was the perfect kid and mommy get away. The pool is outdoors so it was closed but they have this shuttle...
