Red Lion Inn & Suites Victoria
Ranked #32 of 46 Hotels in Victoria
Reviewed 19 October 2006

I was in Victoria recently to work for a few days and my wife came along to visit and ride the bike trails.
We chose the Red Lion based on the reviews it received in TripAdvisor. (we use this site all the time for resorts in Mexico too).
The hotel was an excellent value. The rooms were clean and well appointed, in a basic way. The bed was good and furniture comfortable.
Since it was out first trip to Victoria we had many questions for the staff and they were always pleasant and helpful. Any request we had was promptly attended to.
The location is about 3.5 KM from the down town, but right on the bike trail so the walk was very pleasant and we were lucking to have 7 days of very good weather.
I expect to be back in Victoria next year for the trade show again and certainly plan to book with the Red Lion once again.

Although I normally don't shop for the cheapest hotels, this one was certainly the odd-one-out in Victoria. But all my doubts are gone now, it was a great stay! We paid only 90 CAD!!! Although the location is not downtown, it's very well and comfortably reachable. The rooms are very generous in size, they are clean and basically perfectly alright! The staff is fantastic, all of them. Very helpful and take the time to chat with you. Some reviews speak about the nightclub, well.... we had not even noticed there was one. So don't let this be a reason to choose another place. It's not noisy either. All in all, just a great place to stay!!

This was a nice room with lovely decor (including marble in the bathrooms, lovely cherry furniture, oriental motif), but it was disappointingly small and cramped. They do give you A/C, cable TV, frig, micro, blowdryer, and coffeemaker. The beds were fine. There was no breakfast. The outdoor pool and deck area were nice. It is convenient to downtown if you have a car. Parking at the hotel is hard to find later in the evening. There were what appeared to be some bums sitting in the rear parking lot at night. The staff here are friendly and helpful. There is a nice little kiosk in the foyer for trip information that we found helpful. Overall a pleasant stay for the price, cheaper than many in Victoria.
