A quirky hotel with some really nice features.
My wife, 3-year old daughter and I arrived at around 1 pm (well before check in time) and they sped up the cleaning of the room so we could check in around 1:30 or so. That was appreciated.
The beds were super comfortable and clean. The location was perfect - between Beacon Hill Park (2 minute walk), the harbour (5 minutes at most) and the Victoria museum (2 minutes). They have laundry facilities although we didn't realize this until we were checking out.
Some oddities: "the view" from our room was to the parking lot. It looks shady, although it really isn't as you're across from a museum and a retirement home. Our bathroom didn't have a table so there was no place to put our toiletries.
I don't know if I'd recommend a one-bedroom stay at Helm's Inn for someone travelling with a rambunctious 3-year old like us but still overall a good experience.
$5/per day for parking which I understand is a good deal in Victoria.
