Days Inn Victoria Uptown
Ranked #26 of 47 Hotels in Victoria
Reviewed 27 July 2012 via mobile

The hotel is located just a few minutes outside of the main downtown area, outside of walking distance so a car is needed, although there are shuttles, public buses and taxis. Front desk staff were friendly and booked our whale watching for us. Our room was small, but we knew it would be - I made the reservation at the last minute and this was one of the few rooms left. We were on the third floor, and with no elevator, had to haul our luggage up three flights of stairs. Our room was located right next to the bar (karioke!!!) which wasn't a problem for us, but others might find it noisy in the evening hours). Although microwaves were available upon request, we did not get one when we asked. We used the coin laundry and the machines were clean and worked well. The restaurant (separate from the hotel, but located in the building) was ok-enough variety for 2 adults and 2 teens. No decaf except instant, and the sausages were greasy, but otherwise the hashbrowns were great, the sunny side up eggs were perfect and the yogurt parfait very nice. We got one of the last available parking spaces each night, so if you want a spot near your room, don't stay out past 9pm.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience at our hotel. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others. We hope that you enjoyed your stay with us and if there is anything that we can do to enhance the level of service that we provide, please let us know. Guests wishing to avoid stairs, the bar, or requiring a little extra space should advise the front desk so that we can place them into the best available room. While we do have some challenges in our building like not having an elevator, we do our best to eliminate these issues by being as flexible as possible for our guests in order to accommodate them in a room that suits their needs. But as mentioned, the earlier you book and the earlier you arrive, the easier it is for our staff to accommodate such requests as they are all on a first come - first served basis. We look forward to being of service to you again soon!

Stayed here last month and we were very impressed with the service, location and value. We have stayed in alot of hotels in Victoria and this is as good as they come. Easy to find and very close to the Galloping Goose trail.

We've been long term guests at the Travelodge Victoria during the winter but this is the first time we've been here in July. The room was large, neat and clean. There was a small refrigerator, a flat screen TV, and a coffee maker - but no microwave. The high-speed wi-fi worked well. The motel is situated in a nice neighborhood with lots of interesting places within walking distance. There is a restaurant on site but breakfast is not included in the price of the room.

Room Tip: Rooms farther from the street have less street noise and noise from the bar.

It's great to see one of our long term winter guests visiting us in the summer for a change! As always, thank you for your continued loyalty to our hotel and making us your home of choice when in Victoria. Although you are likely most familiar with our extended stay kitchen suites, I am pleased to see that you also found our standard room amenities to be equally as comfortable. I should note that while all of our standard rooms do contain bar fridges, microwaves are only found in our standard rooms with two queen beds. Thanks again for coming to visit us and we look forward to seeing you in the winter for your long term stay.

I just love staying at this hotel, the staff is helpful and pleasant and has gone above and beyond to make my stays great, and to keep me coming back. The location is perfection right across from a little park and water inlet, they are pet friendly and even have smoking rooms. The rooms are nice, well furnished and stocked, cleaned daily. It just a short drive from all the Victoria attractions, free parking and free wi-fi. I stay in a kitchenette room when there, and it has all the amenities for a comfortable stay away from home. I would always recommend this hotel to anyone taking a trip to Victoria.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of our hotel! We are so glad that you have made us your home away from home in Victoria. It looks like you prefer our smoking rooms. We are one of the few hotels in Victoria that still offers rooms for smoking travellers. I am pleased to report that our smoking rooms will be upgraded this year with new bedding and new chairs. But regardless if you choose a room that is smoking or non-smoking, we aim to provide friendly service, clean rooms, and great value. It's great to see that we delivered on that commitment to you on each and every one of your stays! If there is anything that we can ever do to improve, don't hesitate to let us know. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

We were so pleased with our suite. We needed three beds and had a suite with a double and 2 sofa beds - all very comfortable. The room, kitchen and bathroom were exceptionally clean and management friendly and helpful. We were driving and it was a quick trip into the city. The proximity to the water and trail is a plus. And the price is right!

We really like staying at this Travelodge. It is not a 5 star hotel, but the rooms got reno since we stayed last year. Big flat TV, mini fridge, coffemaker, micro, iron, etc. We travel with our dog, and the dog park is just across the street. Service is great. Our dog got a couple of doggie bags with treats and poo bags!!! Price is right and excellent service. Very happy customers!

My husband and I were celebrating our 10th Anniversary, so we decided to go to Victoria BC, for two nights. Being our first time visiting, we brought our young son with us.
After researching Tripadvisor, we decided on the Travelodge. It was affordable and right in our budget. We searched for a hotel with a kitchen and an indoor pool.
Our room was on the 3rd floor, number 371. We were glad it was on the water side, looking toward downtown, because the opposite side had no view at all.
The hotel was a little dated, but the room was very clean, with an exception of the inner blanket which had a scary dark stain. Beds were very comfortable, but had wooden headboards, which were uncomfortable for watching tv. The plumbing was loud, and woke my husband up from a sound sleep. And because my husband is a big guy, he compared the shower to an RV.
We used the warm pool twice, and tried the sauna, but never really got hot in the time we were in the pool. If you want the sauna experience, go down 45 minutes early to turn it on.
There is a free shuttle to downtown and back, that we opted not to use.
My review seems to have quite a few negatives, but overall the hotel was exactly perfect for our family. We would definately stay here again and suggest it to others.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms have a nice skylight over the kitchen

Congratulations on your 10th Anniversary! I am pleased to see that our hotel suited the needs of your family perfectly. I hope that you enjoyed your stay in Victoria. In regards to your stay with us, I apologize for the oversight in our housekeeping department regarding your stained blanket. I assure you that this is not a routine standard in our hotel. Indeed, the guest rooms may sometimes be affected by noise from our plumbing. It is a consequence of being in an older building but we find that most of our guests are not disturbed and it is not a routine occurence. I apologize for any inconvenience caused during your stay. We do our best to ensure that each and every guest stay is positive and satisfying. If there is anything that we can do to improve your future stays, please let us know. We look forward to welcoming you and your family again.
