When I booked the Sandman in Victoria I didn't do my homework too well.... I thought this was a downtown hotel with everything within walking distance. Not doing my homework before a trip is so unlike me. But as I drove from the harbor to the hotel I realized my error.
Sandman is located a couple of miles north of the city center. There's not much to do and the liquor store across the parking lot didn't make it any better at first sight. But like many other hotels the surroundings didn't seem to influence the standard of the hotel nor did I have any problems with the liquor store. This is Canada after all.
The hotel is clean and it's worth the money spend on it. It's not more, it's not less. The rooms are nice, the pool is nice and the location actually became very convenient when I headed north a couple of days later. But that's it... It's nothing special and I don't think it is meant to be more than ordinary.
