cozy, comfortable, great location & staff

Posted 22-Mar-2017
I booked this hotel because of the location and free parking. The building has an old character charm which I liked a lot, and the interior was clean and very comfortable, with a good sized fridge, which is always nice especially when travelling on road. It lacked a microwave in the room but the staff were very kind to let us use theirs. The morning coffee in the lobby was very good. All in all, it was great. I would definitely return.

Budget accommodations in the Heart of James Bay

Posted 17-Mar-2017
Pros: Hotel has character, is very close to downtown Victoria, Beacon Hill Park, the BC Royal Museum.
I enjoyed my stay and was very pleased as the condition of the hotel - having known it very well 30 odd years ago. Everything was clean & tidy. However the bed was very hard and the room didn't have any amenities - no in-room coffee, fridge, air conditioning or blow dryer. The hotel is in a very quiet neighbourhood and easy walking distance to downtown Victoria, Beacon Hill Park and the walking trails. But for travellers looking for bargain accommodations, it was very good.

Great hotel, with great decor. Pub downstairs was a great place to grab a bite to eat. Room (#311) was a lot smaller than I thought, but was cozy. Internet was good quality as well. And it is a nice short walk (10min) from the wharf, legislature, museum, and beach.

Well located hotel in downtown Victoria,

Posted 01-Mar-2017
Pros: Great location and good value
Cons: Total refit, reduce the number of rooms , combine two together to make a larger more modern suite.
Location: Very convenient downtown location, one could walk to anything of interest in Victoria,
This is an older hotel, maintained to a good standard but the rooms are small and not well fitted, Fine as a place to sleep but certainly not a room that one would want to spend any time in.

Very nice clean hotel with a lot of character. Friendly staff, great location and all of the basics.

nice inn and spacious room

Posted 01-Feb-2017
This is a nice inn with vintage facilities and style with spacious room and bathroom. Very quite everyday from morning till night. Most of people in this inn are seniors and quiet. People staying in the inn can get 10%off coupon for meals the restaurant downstairs which offers cheap but nice food. I recommend this place for people with light sleep.

Great place to stay

Posted 28-Jan-2017
Pros: Everything
Everything about this place is just fine. Plenty of parking; close to the beach and the park. Less than ten minutes walk from downtown - close to some good restaurants - try the Heron rock bistro! - and the Inn itself offers a good breakfast as well as lunches and dinners.

Quaint, comfortable

Posted 26-Jan-2017
The room was small but clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is charming and the staff were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed breakfast at the diner downstairs each morning, long walks at the nearby park, inner harbor and breakwater, and tea at the pub downstairs every evening. Wish I could have stayed longer. I will book this hotel next time I'm in town. The price (probably a winter rate) was very reasonable.
