The hotel was very colorful. Inside is like going back in time with old style looking phones, chairs, furnitures. Very colorful, though. I enjoyed the cheerfulness. It was clean and comfortable. We just stayed one night there. The people were very friendly. There was a pool and waterslide there, but of course we did not have time to go there...

Love love loved this place. Will be back to stay again. Had 5 -8 yr Old boys as well as my Husband. The waterside, pool, hot tub, ping pong table and Wii were a hit for this adventure. The ride downtown with Vaughn in the VW Van was super cool. The kids said they felt like real hippies☺ The lounge...

I had always seen photos of this place online and thought I should try it out. Very funky throwback motel(but these guys have done it purposely). Cool lounge area in the lobby with REAL typewriters and a music center that has vynil records for your listening pleasure. Our son said the pool and waterslide were "awesome", aptly named the Zedinator....

If you are looking for a 4-star hotel, Hotel Zed is not for you. It is a quaint and quirky hotel that feels like a trip back to the 60's. The staff is absolutely wonderful and extremely helpful. The front desk spent a bit of time helping us figure out bus schedules and fares so we didn't have to drive...

While traveling around to different resorts, had to stay one night near Victoria to take the Coho ferry early next morning to Port Angeles. I thought it would be fun to surprise the wife with something different, and it was! This is a very different hotel from what we normally frequent. Refreshing! The room was clean (and colourful!). The bed...

Hello Sherri T, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on Hotel Zed.

It's good to hear the front desk was able to assist you with this though. We look...

Comfy small rooms, but really noisy. We could hear kids yelling in the pool all evening even if we were far from the pool!! Neighbour's stiff door that close in the middle of the night isn't really nice either!
