Recent guest reviews

The location was perfect for the things we wanted to do and see. The staff made you feel that they truly wanted you to enjoy your stay. I dealt with 5 different staff people and they were all excellent. Before I go any further, I must say I am not one who gives praise to someone just because they are doing what they are being payed for. I give it when I feel that the job they are doing goes beyond the basic job requirements. From the moment we checked in 16 May 16 to the next morning, the young lady who greeted us, to the night gentleman who checked us out were wonderful front people for the Howard Johnson name. And I would be amiss if I failed to mention the two young ladies who were our waitpersons at your hotel restaurant. Again wonderful. We will be back to your hotel when we come back to Victoria and spend a lot more time.

staff were very good at providing special requests

staff went out their way to make our stay a great experience

Clean, comfortable room and a reasonable restaurant attached to the hotel. Covered parking was great in the rain. We would have preferred a room that was around the back or side to avoid the noise from the highway. We will return!

This brand-spanking-new hotel is conveniently located on the main road to Victoria,a couple of miles out of town. I really liked the large, half-kitchen style room because it's so nice, after you've been traveling for a while, to be able to make your own breakfast or lunch. Victoria's an expensive place to visit, so this hotel is a very good value. The last time I came to Victoria, I stayed in an old Victorian mansion on the inner harbor, which was lovely, but quirky and twice the price.
