I have stayed at Hotel Zed 3 or 4 times with 3 children and found every time to be a delight not only for them but for me. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful . The funky little mini bus saved me the frustration if driving in the city and the pool and waterslide saved me the frustration of...

The free bike rentals and VW shuttle van made getting around in town a breeze. The staff were great to deal with, especially Dana who went out of her way to make us feel welcome and ensure we had everything we needed and more! Room was small but clean, we will opt for a larger configuration next time. Very fun...

Hotel Zed had friendly staff, a clean room and a fun, funky 70's theme throughout! There is a ping pong room and a heated pool with water slide.

Stayed here for several nights with my 3 kids, 14,11 & 7. We could have stayed anywhere in Victoria, but I choose this Hotel as it had an indoor pool (outdoor pools in March are not heated) and a water slide. It's location is only 10 minutes from downtown Vic and right across the street from Mayfair Mall. Denny's, Kentucky...

Hey Flyfishn, Thank you so much for the great review! It's great to hear our central location worked well for your family and our indoor heated pool did the trick.

Loved it! The ambiance was great! Although we didn't get a chance to swimming or in the hot tub or ride the shuttle van (we just ran out of time), everything else was great! I thought our room had an "old" smell, but it wasn't bothersome. We stayed 2 nights. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again!
