Trying to find a reasonably priced place in Victoria in the summer is tough. Trying to find one on Thursday and Friday nights, with two single adults, two attached adults with a toddler... darn near impossible. But the Surf Motel came through for us!
Rather than getting two rooms, which I had expected, we ended up with the spotlessly clean 'cottage'. In fact it is a separate house, all on its own, directly behind the Motel. Obviously a wartime build, it was cozy, with one big bedroom and two smaller ones, living room, bathroom, sit-in kitchen and huge yard. Just the right size indoors and lots of exploring space outdoors for a very active toddler! Sure the decor was a touch dated, but we were there just to sleep and having a full kitchen was a bonus (saved on eating out!).
The location couldn't have been better: around the corner was the seawall and a nice walk out along Ogden Point. Down the street a bit was a little mall area, and just a short car drive down Dallas was Beacon Hill Park - with a small zoo guaranteed to amuse children young and old.
Found the desk staff very helpful.
What a wonderful find!
