Posted 29-Nov-2015
Shady characters loitering in the lobby all night carrying on with the hotel desk clerk The beds it actually had bedskirts on them were stained one of the duvets was not even in a cover Bathrooms are filthy and the furniture had stains all over it We had two rooms and one was as bad as the other The housekeeper simply shrugged his shoulders when we complained truthfully we were too afraid to ask the desk clerk for assistant We had two rooms and one was as bad as the other The housekeeper simply shrugged his shoulders when we complained truthfully we were too afraid to ask the desk clerk for Assistant Ended up having to leave and go across the street to stay at a lower rate at a beautiful hotel

Avoid this hotel.

Posted 17-Nov-2015
Pros: .
Cons: Everything - from the furniture and decor to state of the bathrooms and the carpeting in the corridor.
Spent one night here in November. We should have read the ratings more carefully. This was truly one of our worst hotel experiences I've ever had: the hotel looks like it was last modernised in the early 1960s. Everything about the place felt old, gloomy and slightly decrepit. The rooms smelt musty, with moth-eaten blankets in the cupboard and a nylon bedcover and ancient heating system. The bath had no plug. When I asked at the desk if they could find me one, it turned out that none of the empty rooms had one. There is nothing much to recommend this place apart from its location and the staff at the front desk were friendly.

It was ok, not recommended.

Stayed in the deluxe room that didn't have a shower though they had a jaccuzzi. They should look a little closer into cleaning the Jets in the tub, as when they were turned on, lots of hair came spewing out of them. It was quite disgusting, though accidents do happen. My friend contacted expedia and they were very helpful as to refund our money back. There were some interesting people living in this hotel too. Oh well I won't stay at this particular Hotel again. Thankful for the refund-thanks expedia :)

Good hotel close to Chinatown

Posted 02-Nov-2015
Pros: Quiet neighbourhood. Clean. Within my budget. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Quiet enough to spend time journaling and reading.
Cons: The odor in the room was musty - perhaps mold? Should be corrected.
Location: Very close to city center. Short walk to Chinatown. Short walk to seaside. Good eateries close by. White Spot across the road.
Hotel was clean but had a peculiar odor - perhaps musty. More noticeable on the second day. Hotel within walking distance of downtown. Buses close by for convenience. Sun came out every day after a morning of rain. Many great little eating places within walking distance. With street map in hand, could follow the sea walk, the Chinatown walk. Relatively close to galleries, museum. Wonderful experience.

Good standard hotel

Posted 19-Oct-2015 on Hotels
Good standard hotel, friendly service, comfortable bed, good sized room. Definitely worth the money spent. On the edge of downtown but short walking distance to attractions/shopping etc. Will stay again when needing a hotel in Victoria.

We found tissues inside the bedding and there appeared to be bloody fingerprint stains on the underside of one of the pieces of artwork in the room.

price and location

Posted 15-Oct-2015
Pros: Price, location.
Cons: The floor could be cleaner.
Location: Close to Chinatown.
This hotel is located at the north end of the down town and is within walking distance of the harbour and thus fairly convenient. It was one of the cheapest hotels in the down town and was nothing special, or horrible. Good for the thrifty, not for those seeking glamour.

Last Minute Rifflandia Steal!

Posted 23-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Very good rate and a spacious suite for a 2 night stay for Rifflandia over the weekend Managed to book last minute for 3 friends and was suprised Close to the center of downtown Victoria, blocks from Fantan alley and Save on foods Memorial Center. Not to mention this place is right next to a campy little motel diner called Paul's diner (which shares a building -and bathroom - with the copper owl live music venue). Paul serves a half decent breakfast and its available all day! My rating: Pretty Good Deal.
