Stayed four nights here recently, everything was very nice. The breakfast was plentiful with good options including boiled eggs and pancakes. Staff really friendly and helpful. Free shuttle ride downtown was nice. And the rubber ducky on the tub was really cute.
Location: Uptown and great location for restaurants and shopping mall if you have a vehicle. About 10 mins drive to downtown Victoria.
Room: Very noisy if they place you facing the main street. Very basic but clean. Plumbing could be loud at times. Thin walls. AC cuts in & out every 5 mins – very annoying.
Staff: Ana was the person who checked us in. She’s very friendly and was going to accommodate me with my request of a quiet room but was stopped by another older staff, who told me they were completely sold out on that day. I tried to explain to them that we are very light sleepers and would like a room on higher floor, away from the main road, elevator and ice machine but that older lady would not budge. Ana assured me my room was “very quiet”. It was room 201 – across from the elevator and right next to a pop machine. The vibration of the machine can be heard through the wall and the room smelled funny. There’s no way we could spend 2 nights in that room. As I couldn’t get the staff to accommodate me, I asked my husband to do it. Somehow, when he asked for it, the rooms were suddenly not completely sold out anymore. We got another room down the hall facing the back.
Parking: Complimentary and more than enough.
Breakfast: Continental with a lot of choices. It was very good.
I gave this hotel a try based on the positive reviews of others. However, I don’t find the staff as accommodating as what other people described. I don’t think the staff treat all their guests the same way.
