It was bad experience staying at this hotel.

Pros: nothing
We booked Victoria trip for 2days. Had to check-out after the 1st night stay. The Hotel was carrying very bad smell from the point we entered in elevators to our room. The bed comfort was ok. No heating facility in the room. The only good part was the location of the Hotel. It's located in downtown victoria. Overall i wouldn't recommend this hotel at all. It was a bad experience.

Good location in downtown Victoria

The hotel has a good location in downtown Victoria, however for the price charged the accomodation is high - it appears that the charge is based on the location of the hotel, not on the amenities provided. The furniture is old, the bathroom fixtures are old, and the athmosphere is that the Harbor Wing of the hotel was not updated since the 1970'.

Location is better than the facility.

Pros: Close restaurants, location
Cons: No free Internet, out dated
The room did contain a kitchenette for those who wanted to prepare meals, but the room needed refurbishing and updating. The staff was adequate and helpful. Parking was convenient and the restaurant was sparsely populated with a limited menu. The location was very convenient and walkable to several attractions.

Decent-no problems

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Pros: Location, OK value, helpful staff, laundry facilities Cons: Nothing really, just a bit dated We wanted a lower priced property close to the ferry terminal, and this filled the bill. Can't beat the location next to the government buildings, and relatively quiet. The pool was still open in Sept. and felt good. We had a non-view room-it was fine. We did not eat in the restaurant. There was a nice little breakfast cafe a couple blocks to the south. We would stay here again.
