“Good location - rates good during summer high season”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Stayed at the hotel during a week in July and once again in August. This is the "high" season for rates (and tourists) in Victoria but was able to get a good rate via their 1-800 reservation line (along with a call by them to the manager to get the best deal). Both times stayed in the King suite (with kitchette - didn't really use that). Rooms were clean and large enough for my use. Underground parking was nice (not many use it, kept car cool and bird dropping free), pool looked nice (but never used it) and Sharks Club was a good bar with really good food (had the steak sandwich which was the best I have had in a while). Cleaning staff were always friendly, front desk were helpful (and if there was an issue with the room they promptly had it fixed - TV had reception issues, so they replaced with new TV). Location is just outside of downtown area so parking is free, but you are close enough with a short drive, bus ride, or 15 min walk. Overall I would recommend it.

My husband and I spent two nights a the Sandman Hotel Victoria on August 2-4, 2012. We were pleasantly surprised at the price $119.00/night and were given a suite which included a second tv, kitchenette and pull out sofa. My only slight disappointment was the front office staff. Upon checking in we asked for directions to Butchart Gardens (being a major attraction in Victoria, British Columbia) for the morning. Unfortunately, the staff wasn't sure where it was located, actually pulled out a map and gave us incorrect directions. We were surprised that the hotel staff living in the city of Victoria wouldn't know how to direct us to such an important attraction that millions of people visit yearly. Thankfully with WIFI, we looked up the gardens ourselves and found our way.

Room Tip: Great Price for a hotel

Super friendly staff at this budget hotel in Victoria. The rooms are older, bathrooms clean but nothing spectacular, but Victoria is a nice place, and you should only be in the hotel room to sleep anyway. Free wifi and parking.

Smooth check in, friendly staff, but the hotel feels really old. It is a very basic hotel - although they have suites with kitchens in them if you need. Bed comfortors are those tacky awful things that are from the 70's.

We were impressed by all aspects of this hotel. the front desk staff were friendly and helpful on check-in and asked if they could do any more for us.
The room was spacious and comfortable and the air conditioner quite quiet.the small kitchenette had all that was needed to make a meal. all staff members were friendly with a smile and may we help you attitude.
the hotel is easy to find when coming in from the airport or ferries as it is on the main route. the rooms are still quiet. There is a restaurant on site if you do not feel like venturing far but not too far from other eateries. There is plenty of guest parking available.

The hotel staff were courteous and the hotel was generally clean. The room was nice, although the bathroom was a bit outdated and the TV was ancient. Overall a pleasant experience, although it was a little pricey for what you get.
