We're a ridiculously fun & eclectic hip hotel in Victoria BC that is so completely awesome your mind will be blown! Ok, slight exaggeration, but we swear it's like nothing you've ever seen before: '67 VW shuttle, typewriter station, vinyl listening station, pool & waterslide, ping pong lounge and comic books in the bathroom ...

We went during a peak time and so hotels in Victoria were relatively expensive. We selected this place because it was less expensive than places in/very near downtown and it got good reviews. The place is funky (in a good way - it’s a throwback of sorts), a little quirky, and everyone working there gets in on the idea. There’s a ping pong table, a water slide, and bikes to use for free. There’s a mall across the street and plenty of busses to whisk you around - to downtown, to nearby locations, to the ferry, to buchart gardens and more. Honestly it’s only about 2km/1.5 miles to town along the main route or back on the galloping goose trail. So it’s not that far from downtown. And do take the trail walking or on a bike! It’s worth it! The downside is that this is a motel

Absolutely adore the Hotel Zed chain. This was our second time staying here, and we couldn't have been happier. They have converted a dumpy old 1960's motel into a new and hip hotel, and it works. We first went the year they opened and stayed 2 nights which was fab, and now we returned about 6 or so years later and they are still fab. Didn't use their pool or slide, nor did we borrow bikes this time, but did the last time we stayed and had so much fun! The rooms are not air conditioned, but with 2 Vornado fans, and the fact that the sliding door opened and we could get fresh air while we slept? Fantastic night. Had our dog with us so they put us in a "dog room", which was still quite pleasant, and would definitely stay again. The adjacent restaurant has some of the best

Stayed at Hotel zed Victoria while my spouse was getting cancer treatment. I would Definately stay again in the winter but the lack of air conditioning is a complete deal breaker. We were shocked to arrive to a darkened room with fans. Granted, they don’t claim to have AC but we never thought to check since some of the oldest and cheapest hotels in Victoria have AC. Luckily we had a king room which has a balcony, I couldn’t even imagine being in one of the other rooms that only has a tiny window that opens. It was nice when we booked under the medical rate that they ensured my husband could do stairs (no elevator) and they’re one of the few hotels that still provide a medical rate discount for cancer patients even during the peak season. I see some reviews said the rooms were

We stayed in the ZedStream, a super fun AirStream my daughters loved. Easy to take the bus or bike downtown. We had breakfast at the Ruby every single morning and the chicken and waffles became our standard order.

I prefer fun boutique hotels when I am traveling, so that’s why I was drawn to Hotel Zed. It’s about 10 minutes from downtown Victoria and has parking. The Pros: loved the fun 70’s decor with pink rotary phones, comic books, and yo-yos in the rooms; the hot tub was wonderful after a day exploring downtown; the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was spacious. The breakfast at The Ruby restaurant was amazing. The cons: there’s a huge construction project going on right behind the property which was loud during the weekday hours, there’s no coffee/tea maker in the rooms which was very disappointing, especially since they do have microwaves and mini-fridges. I was traveling solo, so the Rebel Room that I stayed in was fine for me, although a bit crowded, but definitely book a

I’ve stayed here nearly every 2 weeks, for the past 3-4 months. It’s my go-to for business travel because it’s a solid stay with clean rooms in good repair. The few times there have been any issues at all, the staff have been quick to jump on fixing them, and speaking of staff, they’re just cool people who make the vibe that much better. The only hesitation I have in making my recommendation is it means my room might not be available when I need it! Oh, they have a hot tub and a pool and my only complaint is that they are not open for at least an hour more, later in the evening.

This has potential. Much better for a younger crowd. Location is ok- right across the street from a mall. The rooms were clean but it still has the old motel feel to them. Staff were lovely. NO coffee in rooms, have to go to the check in area for coffee and tea,

We booked Hotel Zed Victoria for our holiday with our grandchildren ages 5, 9, and 11. We had no idea what to expect, but were intrigued by the pictures online. Hotel Zed exceeded our expectations in every way! From the moment we arrived and the grandkids were encouraged to type a happy message on the manual typewriters in the lobby, to the free coffee for my husband and I every morning, Hotel Zed was a great home away from home! The clean rooms with funky, retro decor, the pool and hot tub, the board games, and family friendly atmosphere made this a great place to come back to after exploring Victoria and area every day of our holiday. The ping pong room even had a bowling set for the little one to play with while the older kids got to challenge Grandma and Grandpa to ping pong

After staying in the Tofino location last fall, I had the opportunity to stay in their Kelowna location last week. It was almost perfect! Aside from the heater being a bit noisy at night, and the parking spaces made too small (no 70's car could possible park there) my stay was enjoyable and comfortable. The kitschy 70's look was very fun and the staff were everything you could hope for. I will be back, Thank you.
