Victoria, B.C.

The hotel was clean and accessible. A little distance from everything so we had to drive to get anywhere: food and entertainment. We charged a extra fee in case we opened a tab, which we never do and they took it off at check out but there is always the fear that we are going to get ripped off. Otherwise we had a good experience.

I would not recommend this hotel. the windows were falling out, staff more concerned for parking for bar patrons than hotel guests. Beds were old clean but old. Room did not look like picture on the website.

Uncomfortable

At check in, it started with the staff licking our hotel room card right before she handed it to us. But other than that, they were nice and helpful. It was clean but the hotel stunk overall. Our room was cleaned daily, but the bed was uncomfortable. Worst shower I have ever been in. Once the temperature was set to warm, it still switched from ice cold to burning hot, then back to warm and repeat. Honestly, I wished I had stayed somewhere else, the hotel made my entire trip less enjoyable because we would always dread going back to the hotel.

Great for the budget traveler

Got it for a lot less than any other hotel in the area. I only use a hotel for sleeping so it was fine - quiet rooms - but ask for a top floor room or a room away from the parking lot - one side of the second floor actually lines up directly with the lot. It's just over a mile from downtown with a bus stop near by. There is a recreation trail just across from it for a nice walk next to the water or along a tree lined paved trail. The hotel staff was very friendly and the restaurant had "Texas Hold 'em", "Magic Bingo" and "Karaoke" nights. Hotel doesn't appear to have been remodeled since the 70's. Free internet in the lobby was a good bonus. If you can get this hotel for a deal, it is well worth it.

Ho Jo Hotel Review

Hotel was great. I don't mind being "off the beaten track" as it's always less expensive and I like to walk.
