Reviewed 8 January 2014

I was in Victoria for a memorial service. Upon check-in the front desk clerk upgraded me to a king when he found out the nature of my visit. The room was quiet, clean, and very comfortable. Free parking, wifi, and a big breakfast, I couldn't have asked for more. You can walk to all the attractions and the downtown core. I will stay again on my next, happier visit.

Having stayed twice now at the Embassy Inn in Victoria, it can be no coincidence that the value remains excellent (although, admittedly, we have not travelled to Victoria at peak tourist price/season). Regardless, the staff were all uniformly friendly and helpful, the room impeccably clean, and the free high quality full breakfasts an extra perk. The only slight flaw was an in-room steam iron which was leaking water, but which was very promptly replaced with a non-leaking version. These attributes, along with the convenient-to-everything location, continue to make this property a superb value in my opinion.

Room Tip: ask for an upgrade if possible

This hotel has a really good location and it was very affordable with free parking and free internet. I did not have high expectations but was not really happy with the room after all. It is very basic and needs upgrade for sure. The room was not very well cleaned. There were hairs left around the sink and on the bed. It felt like there was a hairy guy staying in the room previously and the housekeeping did a sloppy job. The carpet did not look clean and the hvac was very noisy and we ended up turning it off.

I'd like to thank you for the review of your recent stay with us. I sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations. I can assure you that the cleanliness issues you experienced are the exception rather than the rule. We have a very committed team in our housekeeping department that takes pride in the cleanliness of all rooms. I will mention to our head housekeeper to have a look into this matter. We are in the midst of an upgrade to our rooms as we speak. Drapes and sheers are being installed this week. New artwork has arrived as well. On a future trip to Victoria, please give us another chance to provide the excellent service we provide to all guests.

This hotel is outstanding! Every employee was polite, enthusiastic and helpful. The facility is spotlessly clean and fresh. Located in a very accessible part of Victoria, quiet and secure. Rooms are bright, tastefully decorated, and spacious. Breakfast (included!) (full cooked egg breakfast) and dining room service were exemplary. We will definitely return to this great find.

Thank you for the review of your recent stay. I have to agree, our staff are wonderful! They do enjoy looking after the needs of our guests. We are located close to just about everything Victoria has to offer and our free full hot breakfast has been a hit since we introduced it early in the year. We look forward to your next arrival. Love the cat! :)

We were coming to Victoria to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and just booked a reasonable hotel in a central location. Not only was it clean, quiet and comfortable, which was all we were hoping for, the staff was helpful and very pleasant, breakfast was included, and the room was excellent for the reasonable price we paid.

Room Tip: We loved our room...on the first floor overlooking the entrance. Extremely quiet.

Stayed in the Queen Tower with 2 Queen beds. Very modern and beds were comfortable as were the pillows . I had a great sleep. Views from balcony are great and the parliament bldg. is next to the hotel as you are right in downtown.
