Great location, very reasonable price. Daily room service, nice sized suites with separate bedroom, living room and kitchen. All requests to staff were quickly accomodated. Handy patking. QUIET. Everything you need for a great holiday.

We booked this hotel as the last stop of our Vancouver Island holiday and weren't expecting much due to some of the recent reviews and the affordable price however we were pleasantly surprised! The staff were extremely helpful recommending local bars and allowing us to check in a little early. The room was very spacious, clean and the kitchenette area was very well equipped.

We booked this hotel to be easy walking distance to Legislature/Empress Hotel, and it is that. Kitty corner to Beacon hill park and Royal BC Museum. Our room was large with a Murphy bed in closet for extra family, and had a full kitchen (toaster, microwave, stove), and a full bathroom with tub (but bathroom was small).
Small air conditioner kept us cool.
Downside, the room faced a busy road- Douglas(?), which could be noisy.
Parking an additional $10.60/night behind hotel.

We weren't expecting anything special but were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room. Small kitchen, smallish bathroom, large room with king-sized bed, table and chairs, work desk and plenty of room to place our luggage. Airconditioning a bit on the noisy side but certainly bearable. Bed was comfortable, pillows fine, shower pressure good, large fridge, stove and bench top with sink etc, small coffee machine. Room was serviced daily which is a bonus during covid times. For the price no complaints at all. Car parking onsite, not secure but seemed a relatively safe area. Good to walk to local attractions, fisherman's wharf, local supermarket and bottle shop. Would definitely recommend.

Overnight stay at Helms Inn. Everything a bit dated and well used, but the room was comfortable and a good size. Wi-Fi was good.

The only negative thing I could report is the tiled floor in the kitchen area was sticky, so it probably hadn’t been cleaned too well.
