Great location. Warm atmosphere

Posted 26-Aug-2016
Lovely place. Great location at a great price. We had a double bed room but very clean and tidy. The floor was not level which was a concern only at night. The bathroom light had to be turned on in the bedroom which could bother the sleeping partner. May not be applicable to all rooms. Loved the pub and restaurant too!

Nice and quiet

Posted 13-Aug-2016
Pros: Close to everything
Cons: A larger bed would be nice
Location: You are close to most activities as it's on the corner of Government St.
The room we stayed in was part of a converted heritage house and was nice. The bed was a little small but otherwise it was quite comfy.

One of My Favorite Places in Victoria

Posted 07-Aug-2016
Pros: I like the clean rooms, the wonderful staff, the safe location, and the convenience to the downtown area.
Location: The city of Victoria is filled with spectacular things to see, and the INN is just steps away from the Inner Harbour, shopping, tourist attractions .
I've stayed at nearly every hotel in Victoria, but the James Bay Inn remains one of my favorites. The staff is great. Steve is a super fellow. All of the folks at James Bay are warm and friendly. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The Inn has an old world charm which fascinates me. I love the decor, the carpeting, the stairways, and particularly enjoy that the Inn is located in a safe area with plenty of free parking. Nevertheless, you are steps away from the Inner Harbour and the vast resources of Victoria.

Friendly Inn in Victoria

Posted 05-Aug-2016
Pros: I loved the ambience; quaint and warm.
Cons: I would like to see better quality towels. The ones they have are somewhat worn and rough.
Location: The James Bay is located near the waterfront, as well as near the downtown. It is a great location.
The James Bay Inn is a comfortable, relatively quiet, and very friendly place to stay. An added "plus" is the lovely restaurant located on their lower level. Breakfasts were great, and you can get coffee in the lobby earlier if you need to. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful.
