It was a very good experience

Posted 20-Sep-2014
Pros: Quiet surroundings, and close to most things you would like to see.
Cons: It is good the way it is.
Location: Location was close to most things of interest; inner harbor, parliament building, museum.
The hotel was very clean and well managed. The room staff were very efficient and friendly. The buffet breakfast was excellent, however, some of the lunch snacks (dry ribs, and fried squid) were very salty. The dinner menu items were very good.

Average hotel with a great location

Posted 13-Sep-2014
Pros: Clean and comfortable room
Cons: Do something with the terrible looking motel across the parking lot
Location: Being next to the Inner Harbour there is lots to do within walking distance
Hotel room was clean and comfortable but that was all. WIFI didn't work most of the time, air conditioner was very loud and didn't work very well and what they consider a lounge and restaurant was a huge disappointment.

Lovely short stay!

Posted 12-Sep-2014
Pros: Location!
Cons: Better pillows , more fruits for breakfast, variety of menus so that those who stay longer have choices.
Location: Horse carriage rides are practically outside the hotel. BC Legislative council across the street ! BeaconHill Park a 20-30 minute leisurely walk away
My husband & I had a comfortable 2 nights at Embassy Inn, a well located moderate accomodation with excellent service esp from the restaurant staff. The room was very well kept but the pillows were a little lumpy. We didn't mind as we really enjoyed so many idyllic spots in Victoria and were exhausted ! It's minutes from Clipper Terminal and Fishermans wharf. We could even walk to Beacon Hill Park.. Breakfast was basic but if you have a longer stay, you could prepare your own as there's an adequate kitchenette in the room. There are plenty of eateries nearby.

Great location...not great anything else.

Posted 2-Sep-2014
Pros: The location.
The hotel smells like it has been a full-time smoker's haven for 35 years. Outdated and stale in all main areas of the hotel, especially the restaurant. The front desk employee seemed embarrassed by the hotel and apologized for the price of what we were charged in the restaurant. Overpriced food, terrible service.

Location, location.

Posted 2-Sep-2014
Pros: Location, breakfast, staff/service, good price
Cons: A/C.
Location: Everything is there. Just across the street.
Whenever we come to Victoria this is our hotel. Not only for its location, in general, is a good place to be.

Great hotel about 5 steps from down town!

Posted 1-Sep-2014
Location: The hotel is located right behind the Parliament building so downtown is like a block away.
We spent 2 nights in this hotel. It's maybe a bit older but the room was great and clean. Breakfast can be eaten in the restaurant and the buffet is very nice with a good choice of foods.
