We had a family get together and this was the most convenient place to stay. The rooms are old and not fancy but clean and the beds were super comfortable. They were in the midst of changing the windows on the rooms so there was more noise than usual but nothing too disturbing. The maid service was spotty .. one...

This is an older building which has been tastefully renovated a few times no doubt. Wonderful antiques are throughout the building. Easy to get to and out of, breakfast was included. Staff are wonderful. Low rise building with an elevator. Pets are welcome - well we saw about 4 dogs during your 2 day stay. Only heard one bark early...

We drove through a blizzard to get to this hotel on Friday. We had planned to catch the 8:15 ferry to Saturna Island to see friends. ( a day trip ) We got up at 6:30 Saturday morning, got ready and grabbed a coffee downstairs. We arrived at the ferry with 45 min to spare and were told the ferry...

Dominic P, General Manager at Quality Inn Waddling Dog, responded to this review

I am very sorry to hear of the challenges you faced on your trip to Saturna Island. Driving through the Malahat can be stressful especially in snowy conditions. I can't explain why the clock was set to the wrong time or how nobody noticed before you checked in. Again I sincerely apologize for our part in your difficult day trip.

On Mondays we accompany 3 elderly woman in their '80's to lunch. We usually go to the same location but decided to try something new. We decided tot try the Wadding Dog as it was a short ride out of town and would offer these two a bit of a variety. The waitress was cheerful and the food arrived fairly...

Thank you for your review and I must agree that our portions are large and can be too much for a small appetite. I apologize for the misunderstanding regarding the server and the bill payment. It is quite common, and a practice that we will revisit at our next staff meeting, to ask a customer that is paying cash if...

We had a prepaid 2 night reservation starting on Christmas Eve and arrived around 4pm to find out that there was a problem with the room - since they were full, we were out of luck. The desk clerk suggested the Super 8 across the street but a quick check of Tripadvisor reviews indicated this wasn't a good choice. We...

Dear Davvos, I am very sorry that we could not accommodate you on your most recent visit to our hotel. I do want to assure you that your credit card was refunded immediately after you left, but because of the holidays, no banking transactions appear until the next business day. However, someone should absolutely have contacted you and I again...

We returned to this place again in December en route to Naniamo. It's convenient (short taxi ride) to the Victoria, BC airport (YYJ) and a comfy and convenient place to settle after a long travel. The basset hound for which it is named is always around and makes it extra fun for adults and kids alike - they keep a...

Dear Antoniette, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I appreciate the positive feedback regarding our Q breakfast and the kind words about our front desk staff.

We came after dark from the Victoria ferry on our way to see the Christmas lights at Buchart Gardens, and found the Waddling Dog easily. It's a charming, half-timbered building with spacious, lovely rooms and old-world prints on the walls. Best of is the lazy basset hound and the excellent hot breakfast. About 10 minutes from the gardens, we will...

I went there to check in and it took 3 rings before the clerk came out. She got rude to the point where I cancelled my reservation. My daughter had reserved a room for Saturday and this clerk was the same with her and her family. We did nothing wrong and we were starting our vacation. Thanks Quality Inn!

I was there on business for 11 days. John V is a wonderful companion, Miss Gail at the front desk is about as sweet as can be, Reuben & Miss Elaine too. They are so helpful, breakfast is fresh and hot and the hotel ambiance from the early 1900's is just awesome. Every time you go for a stroll on...
