Terrific Value, Good Location, Excellent Staff - Clean, Comfortable

Visited Victoria and stayed here for a week. It was an excellent visit. The hotel is very quiet, clean and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The room was an average hotel room size with 2 double beds, a desk, flat screen LCD TV, Fridge, Microwave and phone with free local calls. The bathroom included sink, toiler and shower/tub. The free wifi and local calls was great, and major bus routes come right outside the hotel which was perfect for sightseeing. Down the road there is a Mayfair mall which has everything you might need. Walmart is a mile away and easily accessible walking or by bus. There is a convenience store called Winks that sells bus passes, water, etc open from 7 a.m. - 11 p.m. I would recommend this as a basic, no frills hotel when you are in Victoria and want to focus on spending your time and money outside - while having a clean, quiet, safe place to come home to. An added bonus is the car rental service that shares the lot, as well as free parking for hotel guests. We just caught the bus everywhere, but we did consider renting a car the last day. National allows you to rent from the Arbutus Inn and return it to their airport location - and the price for a day rental is not too much more than the cost of a cab. Combined with free parking at the hotel, if I had planned more ahead of time I am sure I would have taken advantage of that to have a car for at least a couple days I was there.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

No car? The first thing you should do is walk to Wink's and pick up a day pass for the bus. The first bus you get on, pick up the bus routes book that is by the driver. You will be able to see every bus and every route in the Victoria area - the 14, 22, 30, 31, and 50 all come by right on the corner the hotel is located at, literally a 100 foot walk. Using the day pass if you have 1 or 2 people is a tremendous value - easy to get around, and even in the high season buses were only half full.

Cool place, access to different things, no WIFI in the rooms and easy commute

The traveller's Inn in Victoria Canada was a great place to stay and I had a good time. The staff were very helpful, attention to needs and many more. The only problem was there was no WIFI in the room which made it harder trying to connect to the internet in the hotel. Apart from that everything was fine. I enjoyed my stay there.
