Strathcona Hotel Victoria

Appearance was great, very clean. Beds were comfy, but not the softest. Pillows were my fav part of the stay. I love my pillows, and the more pillows the merrier. Would recommend it, especially for downtown.

If you really want to stay right in the heart of the city, this is the place. The hotel has the greatest selection of bars/restaurants in the whole city – right in the ground floor. But everything else is right nearby. Stay here and you are walking distance of everything. Front desk staff are friendly and very efficient.

Obviously, at $70 a night, you shouldn’t expect the lap of luxury.
But that being said, the Strathcona is a very good hotel for the price.

Some Pros and Cons that may or may not be important to you in your decision making:

Pros:
-hotel is very charming, and the rooms are basic but clean
-staff very helpful and friendly
-good continental breakfast (bagels, waffles, toast, cereal, muffins, tea, coffee, fruit, yogurt)
-excellent location

Cons:
-bed unsupportive and uncomfortable (could be more of an issue if you are a larger person)
-no desk in the room
-can hear people in the hall, and to a lesser extent, in their rooms.
one my first night, there were so many people coming back to their rooms late at night that I had to wear earplugs. On the second night, this wasn’t an issue

I would say that the best part about this hotel was its location-right in the middle of downtown. Other than that, I would probably never stay there again. Our room was pretty gross, as it seemed like it had never been cleaned. During your stay, nobody will clean your room. They will give you some new water glasses, but that’s about it! I would not recommend staying here during breaks (Spring break, summer vacation, etc) because it will be extremely LOUD. The walls are paper thin and we could hear our neighbors until 3 am-it would be 100 times worse when there are a ton of college kids partying it up in the bar attached to the hotel. This place is fine as long as you don’t spend too much time in the hotel!

We stayed two nights at this centrally located older hotel. The front desk staff are very efficient and friendly. The daily continental breakfast which is included in the price of the room, is a great way to start your day. They serve waffles, muffins, toast,cereal, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruits, juice and tea/coffee. We stayed on the 5th floor, our room was a bit worn. It was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The TV is a nice size, and we enjoyed the complimentary herbal teas.
