Pas propre dutout, propriétaire très bête. A éviter.

It is the "Victorian Motel" because it is on Victorian St., not because of quaintness or style. On the plus side, it has beds and a roof, and I liked the little walk-in closet with a sink, in addition to the sink in the bathroom. On the minus side, my wife did not like the smell (I did not notice... More

An old budget motel that is located in the center of town. Limited amenities, room was clean and comfortable but would not recommend in the winter as door does not have weather stripping. Recommend to someone use to a variety of accommodations on the road and not fussy.

We wanted to stay in the center of town so that we could walk around this very attractive town and this was the only place. Other motels were on the outskirts of town near the major roads. We stayed after looking at the room. The motel looks old and the room we had was also. Despite adding some new things... More

The Victorian Motel is a very old motel that has been an Amherst landmark for as long as I can remember. Yes it is old. However, The motels in this town are severely overpriced for what you get. The Victorian is a reasonable price. It will give you a comfortable bed. Clean bathroom. It is in the centre of town... More

Older motel, only room in town available. Clean room, friendly staff, worth the money. Room had fridge and microwave. Smelly room, however clean. Served the purpose for only a few bucks! Definitely not the holiday inn!

NOTE: I didn't check TripAdvisor before staying here. Whoops. The good: -Lowest price in Amherst -Central location -New-ish floors in bedroom and new-ish tiling in bathroom -Good room service -Generally clean on arrival and after room service The bad (read to the end because the worst is last): -Payment is 100% upfront -No sympathy for changing plans, deciding to stay...

Water on floor in room when it rained. When I asked to have it cleaned up I was given a mop and bucket so I could do it myself. Shows neglect of basic maintenance and repairs Needs new windows. Paid too much for what I got. Rooms are not noise-proof. Pro: Right downtown in beautiful Amherst NS

The place is a complete dump and I couldn't believe the bedding with cigarette burns and I just felt so dirty when I got up in the morning. Nothing has been updated to code, no working smoke detectors, heater wires were disconnected so you could use heat, fridge was not plugged in to keep anything cold, taps for shower were... More
