Robin Hood Motel
Ranked #39 of 49 Hotels in Victoria
Reviewed 27 August 2012

We stayed at the Robin Hood Motel for two nights so we had a full day to go whale spotting. The motel is a little dated however very clean and quiet (apart from the seagulls).
It's outside the centre of Victoria but there's a lovely 30 minute walk along a scenic route. Staff were helpful, in particular Art who has great stories to tell.
By the way, we saw lots of Orca killer whales out on a fantastic RIB boat experience from Victoria! Book via the helpful tourist information centre staff as you'll get a discount!

The person at the desk in the evenings is very helpful and accommodating. The morning woman is a bit abrupt and comes across unfriendly, just stay upbeat and she comes around and will be helpful. Rooms are very dated with the 1950's John 3:16 art that does not do the verse justice. Beds are OK, covers need replacing. I highly recommend to the owners that they spend a little on updating on a regular basis. Bathrooms are clean. No shampoo at this budget location. Some rooms have AC others not.

We stayed at The Robin Hood Motel on BC Day weekend. Victoria was very busy, and it was difficult to find availability anywhere. This motel provided us with spacious clean rooms. The bathrooms were spotless. The staff were very helpful. The rooms are little outdated, but we were not bothered about that. We will definitely be back to this great little motel.

Room Tip: We booked a one bed queen room and a suite with one bed and a sofa bed. Both rooms were fine.

wonderful to have a bath - showers don't really help feet and legs that hurt from all that walking. Large and spacious, really helpful owner, great to have a laundry on site too.

Room Tip: ground floor if heavy luggage, otherwise stairs are a bit of a bind!

I was moving some stuff in a cube van and so was just looking for a hotel with a roomy parking lot. I cottoned onto this place. I was expecting very little indeed when I was quoted less than $60 night, but the van was more important than the room and I didn't want to drive it through the city.

I opened the door and it smelled clean and the bed was more than adequate, it was roomy and the bathroom was fine. This was not deluxe accommodation, but it was much more than I was expecting. Really, I was impressed with the value for money. The hotel was older and had a kind of older world motel charm. The guy at the front desk was courteous, polite and attentive.

The part of town it is located in wasn't the best neighbourhood, but it wasn't the skids either. Close to a nice trail and a brisk walk to downtown. Really, I would consider staying here again if I was in town with a purpose. I have to say that I left as a very pleased customer.

After a horrible night at chain motel down the road, we switched to the Robin Hood. For the same price, our suite (full kitchen included) was more than twice the size, actually clean (including bathroom grout), and just a great experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful, with lots of suggestions for things to do in the neighbourhood. This place was great, and I will absolutely go back!

Room Tip: The full kitchen for a couple extra bucks is a great choice! The kitchen was well stocked with dishe...
