Ended up booking their Jacuzzi suit (room 311) as they were sold out of regular rooms. Arrived at 4pm and the room wasn't ready. No big deal we went to our friends room for a drink and our room was ready within a half an hour. The room was definitely used. The jacuzzi tub looked stained and had some stress...

Thanks for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I am sorry for the experience in which you encountered and can assure we value your feedback and will act upon it. As the jacuzzi tubs are the original tubs we are looking at having these tubs refinished in the near future. They work great however as any shower tub...

Beware of the underground parking! My husband chose this hotel becase it had secure parking. But his bike was ripped off,as he loaded it and went back after a couple of trips to fill his saddle bags, No cameras were working. Managment did not compensate in any way! Cops were Involved. I had recommended this hotel.... Never again

Stayed over for one night for business. Stayed in a King Room. Room was very clean, comfortable and had all amenities I needed. Check-in was easy, friendly and helpful. Parking was free, wi-fi was free. Security at night was reassuring. Brian the General Manager was very accommodating. Highly Recommend this property for a good experience at a reasonable price.

Arrived by 70X Downtown Express bus from Swartz Bay ferry terminal, alighting at the stop on Hillside off Blanshard, just before the bus turns left onto Douglas Street. Even with luggage it was fairly easy to cross the busy road junction towards the hotel which you can see from there. As my old "Rider's Guide" Victoria bus timetable was dated...

Poor experience. Pet friendly means you get to hear other people's dogs bark all night. The key card system failed (must have a card to use elevator stairs) we had random people banging on our door at 3:30am... How did they get to our floor without a key card? staff approached them but left them in the hall to still...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your most recent stay with us. I do apologize for the experience in which you encountered regarding the noise on your stay New Years Eve. We take great measures to ensure minimal noise throughout the entire hotel. This includes many hallway walks to ensure all noise is minimal. As you stated our hotel is...

I have read some of the previous reviews, I was wondering if I was at the same location or the folks were looking for a 5 Star hotel at the cost of a 2 star. Yes each of us have our own tastes and idiosyncrasies but I am a realist, you get what you pay for. In this instance I...

There are better choices for a hotel in Victoria. Only positive thing I can say is the location. Wasn't the cheapest hotel, the beds were uncomfortable, the room was lacking in features (only a few TV channels, no fridge, no microwave) and the bathroom was dirty.

If your looking for a five star hotel them keep looking. If your looking for good value ten this hotel offers clean rooms, good location and has good staff. Some of the hotel has been renovated and some of it is older. We paid 89/ night and felt we got good value.

Staying at this location only because we had a last minute need to come to Victoria for one night and had a free night from the Sandman Lucky 13 program. I normally only stay at Sandman Signature hotels as I've learned from experience that the regular Sandman Hotels are not great, this one was no different. The hotel has had...

We ended up staying in Victoria last minute and were able to grab a room at the Sandman. It is relatively close to the downtown centre so our cab back that night was affordable (although not walking distance to any major attraction). We ended up in a suite as there was no standard rooms left, which was fine with us....
