Enjoyed every moment of our stay. Room was clean, quite and comfortable. Beside parliament bulilding. Almost everything is at walkable distance. Reception was very helpful. Breakfast has variety. From now on, whenever visiting Victoria "Embassy Inn" will be my first choice.

Stayed there during a Coho ferry Christmas special that included this hotel, ferry fare and a bus trip to the gorgeous Butchart Gardens at night. The Embassy is without doubt one of the most comfortable hotels I've ever stayed in (and I stay in a lot of hotels). Everything about this exceptional. Comfortable room/bed, fabulous breakfast (possibly the best I've had for free in a hotel), very clean, wonderful staff and close to everything downtown right next to the Parliament Building. And a very reasonable price on top of all that. Good family place near the USA ferry.

We spent 3 wonderful weeks at the Embassy Inn (our second stay there in 4 years). Great rooms, great location and super staff all around. We were impressed with the bathroom renos that have been done since our last visit there 4 years ago. Will definitely stay there again, hopefully next fall.

Booked this hotel based on reviews alone ……. Really not sure what to expect, but wow what a fantastic surprise. The location is incredible - you are less than a 5 minute walk to the harbour . The rooms were clean and had super comfy beds. All the staff right from the time we checked in until the time we checked out, were amazing. Very rarely do find a hotel that does not charge for parking ……. Not only was it free but it was underground and secure Will most definitely recommend the Embassy Inn to anyone I know that is planning a visit to Victoria

The breakfast was surprisingly good and full of choices. Love the waffle maker and waffles with honey. Very surprised by the choice and quality. Also love the fact that it is close to the center of everything, not too far from the seashore, walking distance to all the food and activities. Will recommend to friends and family.

Excellent location. Easy to walk to downtown attractions. All the front desk, housekeeping, and food services staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was fabulous. Lots of choices in food and beverages. Truly something for everyone. Appreciated the mandatory hand sanitizing station at the entrance of the dining area. Our one bedroom suite was very clean and spacious and had all the amenities we needed. The bed was very comfortable and our son found the sofa bed fine. Having a deck was a nice bonus too. Parking included was a great benefit so there was no searching for parking and our vehicle was on site whenever we needed it. There was even a lovely weekend outdoor community craft and goods market just behind the hotel while we were there. We visited and purchased some locally made art and food. We were only there for a couple of nights but easily could stay there for an extended period. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Great location, near the waterfront, restaurants, and the ferry. We were welcomed, have a nice suite with a king bed. There is no noise from the hotel, other guests, or outside. Free parking, which is great. The breakfast is basic: eggs, meat, breads, cereal, coffee and juices. You bus your own table, which they made us aware of. We enjoyed our stay here.

Great place to stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Easy to find location, and walking distance to great activities and sights. The room was great, and had not problems with it at all. The breakfasts were absolutely fine every morning. Beds are in good shape. I liked being able to walk to a lot of really great shops, and still be close enough for an easy drive to other places away from town.

We stayed here for a couple of nights after returning from an Alaska cruise and it was absolutely wonderful. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. The breakfast was quite good, a cut above the usual at say a Hampton Inn. The location is very convenient to shopping, dining, and the government buildings. The price for the room was reasonable, not cheap, but it should not be. For a comfortable stay in a nice location go here.

This was a fantastic location! Only one block from the water and quality restaurants. The rooms were very clean and the complementary full breakfast was top notch! The front desk was very helpful arranging our taxi to the airport early, they even got us a box lunch from the chef before the breakfast was open. Also close to the hop on/off bus for sightseeing and near “high tea” locations.
