Beware - hotel no longer existPosted Jan. 17, 2018 on Wotif
On arrival, was met with sign on door stating hotel is closed down and no longer in business. This is despite a confirmed booking email. No notification was sent to alert of situation. Booking made in August 2017 for accomodation of 15 Jan 2018. Had to look for alternate accomodation in the evening in foreign country. Not pleasant experience for family with children. Why is this hotel still being listed on your site?

Reasonably priced. Centrally locatedPosted Dec. 11, 2017
Pros: Price and location. Free breakfast
Cons: Read about my experience
Location: It`s central and an easy drive to most locations downtown
The staff were friendly. The room was a good size and clean except for some carpet stains. It is reasonably priced and centrally located. There are some questionable characters hanging around in the area. I also, unfortunately had a room next to a loud group that was up until 2am, that liked to go in and out of their room to smoke and "talk" in front of mine.
Great value for family accommodationPosted Nov. 13, 2017 on Hotels
Great value, bedrooms were large, comfortable beds, very clean, kitchen had a fridge/microwave/coffee maker only but was sufficient for our needs, view of the water was a nice bonus!

Construction sitePosted Oct. 18, 2017 on Hotels
Previous reviews have noted the "renovations", but it turns out the entire property is being converted to apartments, which means constant construction noise (2 of the 3 buildings are now closed) from about 8am until the evening. Could hear the workers' conversations right through the door, so apparently they didn't get the memo that people are still paying money to sleep at the hotel. Front desk service was very good and friendly, but room was below even EconoLodge standards: disgusting carpet, "connector" door to adjacent room which was so thin we could hear every word on our neighbour's TV, and literally "trapped" (during peak traffic) in the parking lot due to both construction and a very busy intersection. "Free Breakfast" was a simple continental one, adequate but also not really worthwhile unless one doesn't have time to get a hot breakfast nearby. WiFi was also inconsistent. Not sure why they bother to keep one building open, but it seems to be time to just shut it all down.

Location it’s okay. Unfortunately the building has paper thin walls. We were able to hear the conversations that other people had next door which it was odd.

cheap place to stay in victoria just outdatedPosted Oct. 9, 2017
Pros: it is within walking distance to grocery, wine stores, restaurants if needed.
Cons: Appears they are working on motel already, entrance doors have a gape in them, so new doors should be installed.
we were able to check in early, which was great. As soon as we opened door, it smelled terrible. Room was clean though, i will give it that. Bed was old, uncomfy, bathroom needs to be redone soon. We were told room had microwave, it did not. I questioned this with front desk and they were kind enough to bring one in. Sleepless night as you can hear toilets flush, doors close, people walking above. We were on lower level. The pool- it is outdoors and had NO water in it. Cannot comment on breakfast as we had an early appt and did not have breakfast. We were also allowed one hour later check out due to our appt. So the staff is nice and accommodating when asked but motel is old and a little smelly.
