                                    The room was spacious

                                    The room smelt musty as if little used

                                    - Clean and fresh room - good swimming pool

                                    - There was no fridge in room - bad Internet connection through proxy, so it's impossible to get emails over a secure channel

                                    Great beds. Roomy.

                                    Outdated tv. Couldn't answer questions about ferry travel. Noisy doors. No breakfast - restaurant didn't open until 9:00 A.M. four blocks to nearest eatery, no car.

                                    Please check the bill when you check in to this hotel, the hotel system doesn't match with my booking price. Luckily I printed out the comfirmation paper and show it to the front deck to amend the price, if not it will cost me another CAD 40 ++ extra. So, be carefully to check the price.

                                    The location is perfect for visiting family. Clean, quiet and comfortable.

                                    You should get a lower price if you stay more than two nights and there should also be a weekly rate.

                                    When I marked poor, we felt that more could be improved. The staff were great. You advertised on the internet and even on the folder to hold our door keys that we would have a free breakfast. When we asked about it we were told there was none, not even a muffin or a glass of orange juice. We feel this this was deceptive advertising.

                                    The hotel was close to what we were attending in Victoria. The hotel was comfortable for the night.

                                    Clean , bright room - very comfortable. Pleasant staff .

                                    The rooms were very nice large and clean we had a kitchen in ours

                                    The stroll 25 min stroll into town advertised was a lot longer then advertised but it was a nice one.For those who don't want to walk into town a good bus service is only a couple of minuets away.

                                    Affordable, economical and close to the city center.

                                    Room is fine but mattress is uncomfortable.

                                    The room was very clean and the bed and sheets were very comfortable. The front counter lady was very nice.

                                    The only thing we didn't like was the fact that at 3:30 am there were girls running down the hall slamming doors and very loud. And at 6 am the people next to us had their TV blaring.

                                    The price of the hotel matched the room and services provided

                                    No breakfast in the morning and the restaurant was not open for business to accomodate. Encountered seedy individuals outside the hotel on check in that made it uncomfortable.

                                    Its nice an close to the galloping goose trail which is nice because I traveled by bicycle. The bed was comfy and the wings in the bar are 25 cents on Mondays and Thursday. Way nicer than the strathcona hotel for only 5 bucks more a night.

                                    Sometimes the people coming out of the bar are quite loud late at night. The tv in room 238 was a 32' flat screen and the tv in room 354 was crappy old 27'. They were both business class rooms. Also because room 354 was adjoined with the room next to it you could hear everything the person next to was saying or watching. Also the adjoined room is a suite so you smell everything that the person next to you is cooking.

                                    the staff were friendly

                                    the room could have had better lighting ie: better and more lamps

                                    The location was in close driving proximity to downtown Victoria and restaurants. Also the pool was a hit for my young niece. Of course the price was good as well.

                                    The peeling wallpaper in the bathroom should be fixed. Also the breakfast offered could have a little more variety.
