Good quality bed in a clean room for a reasonable price. Well located for easy access to most things. Rooms are fun and trendy and filled with retro memorabilia like rotary dial phones. Beds are good quality. This is not fancy and not 5-star but you will remember your stay (in a good way) much longer that most because of...

We had a one bedroom unit that slept 5 of us comfortably. This hotel is very retro and fun. We used the free VW bus ride to and from downtown and it worked great. Be sure to have breakfast at the restaurant that is on site.

Zed Hotel is awesome! These guys took a run of the mill motel and made it into something special. Retro vintage style with a VW bus out front that will take you downtown. They even have rotary phones with a dial and an explanation on how to use them! Plus record players in the lobby and ping pong down stairs....

Friendly staff, comfortable room, quirky retro design, pool and water slide, free parking all are pluses at Hotel Zed. We chose the location for two reasons # 1 it's pet friendly, and #2 it's a great location if you're traveling north to Nanimo or Tofino after your time in Victoria. Our dog was super comfortable, upon check-in he was given...

We stayed at Hotel Zed with our 9 yr old daughter. She definitely enjoyed the water slide, the pool and ping pong table! Location is very convenient, although parking lot is tight and you have to be extra careful because kids run their bikes through it without looking around at times. Staff was very welcoming! The place is particularly decorated...
