Loved the fun colors and decorations. Really small room.
Design, free bike rental, price, great collaboration with the restaurant, and the free pool Sound proof is weak (but tolatable)
The "retro" motif was fun for adults to remember and kids to find out how it was in "the old days". Extra effort was made to make touring of Victoria easy and stays fun with the pool with water slide. For someone not used to city traffic noise, the busy road alongside could be fairly distracting.
There were many options available for recreation at the hotel, including pool/sauna/hottub, ping pong tables, video game, bored games, music stations, bike and long board rentals. There were shuttles as well and location was awesome. Good restaurant on location. Beds were comfy. Having to carry luggage up stairs.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The hotel is extremely cute and unique, I travel for work and have never seen one such as this. It's funky and original. I will be staying here whenever I'm in Victoria!
Very helpful and friendly staff with a unique and funky vibe. Clean and comfy room at a good price. Easily accessible by bus from ferry terminal, UVic, downtown. I'd definitely stay here again. Fairly noisy due to location on busy street. There was also a lot of noise from nearby doors closing and upstairs guests walking around. But that was the only downside.
Funky colors, excellent service, surprising rooms Two floor complex so be aware of a heavy suitcase
I liked the fun vibe, friendly staff. Travelling in fall meant I didin't have to worry about no AC. Expen$ive restaurant on site, but plenty in walking distance. Pool could have been a little cleaner. Noisy at night with the road and the ice machine next to us.
big tv, comfy bed, friendly staff, friendly, huge shower area, free coffee, colourful rooms, arrt the mirror was not clean.. didn't mind that but just to let you know if others mind that.
Fun retro look, great coffee, excellent and plentiful staff. Restaurant was good but too expensive for a budget motel.
Cheerful decor and fun presentation. Friendly and helpful staff. Could hear snoring through the walls from adjacent rooms.
Very clean friendly place. The pool was warmand clean cool waterslide. The bed was great.
convient, clean, good value. better ventilation in room would be good
Helpful manager at check in. Comfortable bed.
Easy to find, good parking, friendly staff, a 35 min. walk to downtown, good price. The room was dated and dark, but clean.
The room is clean and the shower is good too.
Convience to rd. ways. Nice for wlking along Gorge. stairs not great when one has knee problems Rm was very smelly and rugs could have be vaccumed or cleaned better.
All we needed was well provided: a complete kitchen with a small stove, a microwave and a good sized refrigerator; living room and bedroom; luggage rack; bedside tables and a clock; a TV , couch, extra tables; plenty of room. It's on an easy to find main road; we could park immediately in front of the room; quiet bedroom because it's on the back side of the motel. The bathroom and kitchen were very clean. There were plenty of towels. The room is dated, by I appreciated that the furniture is still functional, so why not use it? I thought the kitchen cupboard shelves should be painted and lined with shelf liner to be more hygenic. The carpets look old by their design and therefore I assume they are dirty.
I am not for staying at Motel's but this one was great. I am not saying it is Four Season's but it is not the motel you commonly think of- Dark room, dirty bathroom. It was comparable to the Holiday Inn express we stayed the day after The lady on the front desk could do better with her gruffness. The gentleman was wonderful.
A good experience at an economy hotel. The room was clean and well kept, the bed was comfortable, and the shower worked well with a steady flow of hot water. The room also had good amenities for the price, with a fridge, coffee service, flat screen TV with lots of channels, and good wifi service. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful when checking in. The location is also convenient if you are traveling around the greater Victoria area rather than just downtown. The only negative was the late night conversations of people smoking on the walkway outside the rooms. The proprietor might want to put up a cabana on the second floor deck on the Gorge Road side and encourage smoking guests to use it after 11 at night.
The staff was very accommodating and the hotel was very clean. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We will be staying again for sure, and recommending it to our friends. The parking lots were full at night so finding a place to park was frustrating. This was due to cars taking up multiple spaces.
We had a problem with the shower in our room and the staff weren't able to fix it right away so we were promptly moved to another room. When we asked one of the front desk staff what the forecast was, she told us we could look out the window as easily as she could. Fortunately she wasn't the only one on duty and the other person was more helpful.
The customer service was exceptional! The manager of the hotel gave valuable information with regards to finding locations which might be of interest to us. Overall, the staff was very welcoming, and made for a pleasant stay in victoria!
We arrived at around 11 pm and the man at the front dest was one of the friendliest, most helpfull people. He went out of his way to provive us with a map and tourist information. It was the best service I have ever come across. I will definately recommend this motel to anyone!
Convenient location - 10 mins away from downtown Victoria. Well furnished rooms with fridge and microwave. We could hear our neighbours upstairs all throughout the night...
Very large and clean room .. It was nice and quiet and the room was really comfortable and spacious . Friendly guy checked me in . Close to the Mayfair mall . Had no AC but with windows opened it stayed cool and quiet . Internet worked but was a bit weak .
The Hotel was very clean and tidy. Beyond expectations. We were greeted at the front desk, who was very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to friends traveling to Victoria. Would book again if in the area.
decent motel. had a kitchenette I booked a double queen bed room for 4 people but was told the price I got was only for 2 people. The lady charged us $15 extra per person. Not very accommodating.
Good location, price No air conditioning, The dresser had underwear left from a previous guest
Location to downtown Victoria. Diner was good value and good food. Smelly stale room on arrival. Tatty appearance. Drawer bases totally broken. No air con.
we liked the location - close to all amenities.
The smell of the room.The noise over the night made by the towing truck.
You get free parking, a clean room in a great location. The room was a bit worn. It seemed a bit expensive for the quality of the room. I stayed here because my preferred option was fully booked. If I didn't have a car I would have used Hotwire and spent a just a little more to get a much nicer place without free parking.
Central location, cleanness.
It is a lovely place that has kept its original decor and traditions. It might be considered "old world" in the present day but is much loved by the those who have been visiting for years. You hear all the time from guests about the 20 or 30 years they have been coming there. The key issue is that it is close to downtown with adequate parking and the food is good home cooking. Linens and pillows are thin, heating system is too high or too low, other guests toilets and showers are very audible. For the question below, I do recommend this hotel (and previously to the Commercial Travellers Association) but with qualifications per above.
