We wanted a beautiful getaway OFF the beaten path in lovely picturesque Victoria for our first ever visit. We were NOT disappointed. Friendly, clean, quiet, a couple short blocks off the major street running through town. Embassy Inn was JUST the ticket! Everyone was SO friendly! From the lovely breakfast to tips on great golfing and lovely tours, our stay in Victoria was everything we wanted and more! Will definitely come here again!
What a lovely city. Victoria feels like a cross between Monaco and Alaska.
The room was quite small but clean. Victoria hotels are expensive so this hotel was a good middle ground between can’t afford it and not worth it. The location is almost too close to everything but it still was quiet. The second building that people complain about is no longer in use. We did not go in the small pool but others were in it having fun.
The front desk staff was fine, they seemed a little stressed. The breakfast staff was very attentive and nice but the breakfast was the usual “American style” hotel breakfast. A European style continental breakfast would be better in my opinion because fresh.
The town is small enough that being a bit further from the harbor would probably not have been a problem. There is a liquor store just steps away by the Days Inn and you can walk through the Day’s Inn to get to the ferry,
Queen bed for 2 was not optimal but we managed. There were no rooms with 2 beds so they allowed us to have our son (who met us there for one day and night) sleep on the floor for one night for $20 which we appreciated greatly though a roll up mattress would have been nice.There was a few hour hot water outage which happens and understandable but an announcement of what was going on and acknowledgement of the inconvenience would have been nice.
If you can avoid high summer the prices and crowds are less but then the weather has to be dealt with. Overall, an enjoyable stay.
