I stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks for work. I did not pay so not sure of the usual price but our group price (there were a lot of us) was amazing. The place doesn't look good from the outside - the property is shared with National Car Rental (they also share the check-in desk) so lots of cars on...

My wife and I chose this hotel primarily because of the price. It is indeed a good value and on average about $30 to $40 cheaper than comparable hotels closer to Victoria's inner harbor, and the inner harbor is available by bus. Having said that, I missed being closer to the inner harbor. Choices of restaurants within 15-min walking distance...

My family loves staying here. The front desk staff are always so friendly and welcoming and the rooms are clean and comfy, and quiet. We have a young child and its imperative that we not hear party people etc and not once have we had an issue with sound. Its in a very central location and easy to find. Have...

We had 2 nights here in order to visit the lovely town of Victoria and the plus for us was that we didn't need to use our car. There are many buses just outside and if you want a walk it is about half an hour to downtown. Comfortable beds and two of them and easy to find on main...

I stayed at this hotel with my Dad during a short visit to Victoria. The hotel is situated in central Victoria which makes it easy to get around. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great friendly staff and for a great price. Would defiantly return to this hotel when we visit Victoria again!

Clean, competent rooms, though a bit small. Surprisingly quiet for being on a main road, place is set back enough from the road with no noticeable traffic noise. Big drawback - no morning coffee - though on weekday mornings, two excellent & funky local coffee places are within a short walk. Helpful front desk staff. Good price point & walk-in...

Dear STCraw, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. Glad to see that you found the funky coffee places close to the hotel. If you do stay with us again just ask at the front desk how the water boiler/coffee maker works in the hotel rooms. We have changed the way our in room coffee is made to be able...

Overall standard was below average for this price-range:: 1. generally, older property in need of refurbishment; 2. outside of the lobby area, doesn't feel clean; 3. room service inadequate; 4. towels very thin, like a "budget" hotel. 5. utensils in family/efficiency-rooms are spare and stove, etc. soiled and dirty. 6. no sound insulation room-to-room, sounds like your neighbours are showering...

Thank you for reviewing your stay at the Arbutus Inn on Tripadvisor. I am disappointed to read that the first and only post this reviewer has ever made on Tripadvisor is not a positive one about their long term stay with us. As everyone knows there are two sides to every story. Yes our hotel is a bit older property...

We stayed at this hotel May 25-27, 2015. We were so pleased with this hotel considering how affordable it was. I wasn't expecting much due to the cost, but there were so many good reviews so we figured "we'd give it a try". So thankful for the reviews - that's the only reason we stayed at this hotel.
