“We will be back!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We needed a winter get away so chose to stay at the Best Western Plus Inner Harbour again. This time we were fortunate enough to have a mini suite on the 7th floor and again, were thrilled with the harbour view! The hotel has a "homey" feel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, with kitchenette, desk, good WiFi, and a very comfortable bed. A daily hot breakfast (included with the room),was a bonus in a bright and sunny room!
The location is perfect for walking to Fishermans Wharf, around the Inner Harbour, to downtown shopping area, to China Town, to Imax Theatre and the BC Museum.
There are several restaurants and dining rooms around the area within walking distance. The hotel itself does not have a restaurant.
The price was very reasonable (hotel had a special rate for staying 4 nights or more), and we really did not want to leave when it was checkout time!
There is an Airport Shuttle that picks up at most hotels and had us at the airport within 45 minutes.
We hope to be able to stay at this hotel again and will definitely recommend it to others!

Room Tip: Recommend choosing a partial harbour view and, if possible, on the 6th or 7th floor. The Garden view...

Thank you for coming to Victoria for your winter getaway, and if we could send a little more spring weather to all our friends in the other parts of Canada we would! Victoria is very popular for winter getaways, and we offer weekly and monthly rates for the kitchen studios, just like the one you stayed in. Perhaps next time you may want to plan an even longer visit?

We were delighted to hear how much you enjoyed our hot breakfast buffet as well as how easy it was to enjoy many of the harbour attractions and several restaurants that were all close to our inner harbour hotel.

Thank you for recommending our hotel to others, and we too look forward to your next stay with us!

We were so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The 3 night stay allowed for free parking in the underground secure garage and the room included an actual kitchenette with fridge, microwave, stovetop and oven - even a balcony where you could sit and look out at the blossoming cherry trees while sipping your coffee. The staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions, free breakfast exceeded expectations in a lovely sunroom. We would definitely stay again, wouldn't even bother to look for someplace else. At least 2 restaurants within walking distance. The only negative, which didn't bother us but might be an issue for some, was that the noise traveled freely between rooms and hallway. So I was woken by people with an early departure just leaving their room - they were not being excessively noisy but they sounded like they were in our room. Another morning when I was returning from breakfast I stepped off the elevator and could immediately hear the hair dryer in our room. Overall an awesome hotel!

Having stayed at this hotel before, it is hard not to like the value one gets for ones stay there. It's in a great location in Victoria and comes with a buffet breakfast of a variety of items to choose from. The staff are friendly and helpful to answer your questions. The rooms are well kept up and the internet is included.

My wife and I stayed at The Best Western Plus Inner Harbour for a month in March 2014 and it was just a wonderful experience. The staff members were all competent, friendly, and helpful. The complimentary breakfast each morning was second to none. There was a fine selection of food including fresh fruit. It did not take too long for one to meet other long-term people who came from all across the country. Location is excellent...one can get to many places including the downtown in a few minutes - WALKING! City transportation is close by. Many fine eating places in the area. The unit we were in was well looked after...the entire establishment is neat and tidy. Compliments to the housekeeping staff. The exercise room is limited in what it has but there is a treadmill and two other machines. It suited us fine. The whirlpool is well maintained and the water temperature is just right. Newspapers are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the third floor....had balconies facing south and east. This allowed for th...

Thank you so much for choosing our hotel for your extended stay and winter break from Lethbridge! Victoria has such a mild climate in the spring, and our Extended Stay Program is quite popular this time of year. We are so delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your month-long stay and all the care you received from our staff in all departments, the variety of amenities we offer such as the free full breakfast, and of course our extremely convenient location to the Harbour and much more.

Thank you again and we look forward to having you stay with us again!

This hotel is located in a great location, on the inner harbour, convenient to downtown Victoria shopping, sights and restaurants. It is a great location if you don't have a car. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hot, complimentary breakfast buffet is served in a bright, airy atrium room with good selection of products. We were in a city view room, which is the quieter part of the hotel, and on an upper floor, which is even quieter. We still had a glimpse of the harbour entrance from the balcony where we could sit, with an outdoor table and chairs (not a given at all hotels). The interior of the hotel was quiet as well. We had a kitchen cubby with mini-fridge, microwave, full stove and oven, table and chairs. Although we had a coffee maker in the room, we usually took advantage of the fresh coffee that was always available in the lobby. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for bringing your family to Victoria for a spring break holiday. We are very happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at our Inner Harbour hotel.

We offer city view, park view, as well as partial harbour view rooms, and indeed these are all popular room types for different reasons. And every studio and suite has its own patio with table and chairs because we want our guests to enjoy this added space, either reading the paper while sipping the morning coffee or perhaps indulging in a glass of wine while planning the next day's adventures?

We appreciate your taking the time to share your experience, and look forward to welcoming you back when next in Victoria.

My wife and I just finished staying here for three weeks. We had a harbour view with a small kitchen nook - perfect for cooking fresh seafood that is easy to find nearby. Our son works at the Fairmont Empress, and our daughter at the Hotel Grand Pacific, and these are excellent hotels for short visits, which we've done often over the years. For a longer stay, though, the Best Western Plus Inner Harbour would be hard to beat, for all the positive reasons stated in other reviews.

One thing we noted that might interest visitors coming here for the summer. You get a much better view of the Inner Harbour in the winter when the trees are not in leaf. The higher your room, definitely the better harbour view. Note that the pool is seasonal, and the "spa" is functional but not much more.
