Our second stay at Helm’s Inn was as a family of three adults. (The first time we were just two.) There are no two bedroom units, but there are several with sleeper sofas, so we booked one of these. Our room was in a different building than the first time and the room was enough smaller that we were convinced that it would be uncomfortably crowded for the three of us. The front desk person was very helpful, but couldn’t give us a larger room, as they were quite full. She did offer an adjacent room of similar size at a discount as an additional room. This turned out to be a wise choice. We spent a little more than we originally planned, but the rates are so reasonable, even without the discount, that we were happy.

Again, the location can’t be beat. Everything a tourist might want is just steps away (restaurant, shopping, tours, sights, museums) so that we never moved our car until we were leaving. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the long term guests, many of whom have been wintering at Helm’s Inn from the interior for many years, are wonderful, welcoming people. Be sure to visit the lobby during tea at 4:00!

We’ve tried, and liked, about four other Victoria properties. However, the simplicity, cleanliness, and extremely high value at Helms draws us back. For women traveling alone, Helms seems to be completely safe, and welcoming.

Second Review Helm’s Inn Victoria
This is a great place to stay. It’s right at Beacon Hill park and it’s a stone’s throw from the Royal BC Museum. Two blocks to the Inner Harbour.
The room was fantastic as well. Totally set up with small kitchen. WIFI was nice and there was a wired Internet connection. Highly recommend the Helm’s Inn!

I got a little nervous as we pulled up, but once inside the room was very nice – clearly newly remodeled and well maintained. Wifi was good, bedding and beds were very nice, and rooms were a good size with a kitchenette which was very handy. GREAT location – very easy walk to all to the waterfront and touristy areas

We have been to Victoria several times.. this time, staying one night before heading quite a bit north on the Island. We wanted to go to Butchart Gardens to see the Holiday light show… Would totally stay here again. It was within walking distance of the bus tour kiosk, the Parliament Building, the Inner Harbor, and Government street, which is where most of the touristy shopping is…. This hotel was wonderful.. clearly a work in progress, there was drywall exposed in one of the stairwells, a dumpster with the teardown from the areas in which they were working…. having said that, it was orderly for what they were doing and there was nothing about our room that was second class. The bed was lovely, there was a kitchen area that we did not use, but could have, dishes were a set, the floors new, the bathroom had a small, thin crack in the sink..otherwise was nice.

The walls are very thin. We could hear everything from the rooms around us, including neighbors conversations and tvs. the floors are wooden so we heard every movement from the room above. cleaners often have loud conversations in the hall which can be heard clearly in rooms. there is also some construction going on at the moment, which can be noisy during the day but we were told this would be finished by spring so won’t be a nuisance if you are going after then.
Nice to have a kitchen but only really good for making coffee and snacks as there is very little counter space.
The helms inn is in a good location, easy to walk downtown and to museum but there’s a lot other accommodation in the area that we would probably try next time.

From check-in to check out, great experience. We had a suite in the Parkside building. It was roomy, bedroom had 2 big beds. Loads of storage space and kitchen facilities.All the staff were super, from reception through to housekeeping. Location is brilliant,easy walk to downtown. Slight downside was some traffic noise, early morning but overall a really good, good value place to stay

Helm’s Inn was a nice quiet place, with a relaxed atmosphere, had large comfy rooms, and was in a great location, two blocks from town….
Communal tea and coffee (and dishwasher) in the lobby area was a nice touch.

We stayed at Helm’s Inn for one night while waiting for the ferry to Port Angeles. Our room, 218, was fantastic! Its a brighr & airy corner room and it’s huge, with a full kitchen. The location is a 10, being right next to the BC museum and a block to the Empress Hotel. No breakfast, or elevator, and parking was 6 dollars Canadian. I would recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget!
