HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Wow, when it comes to customer service this hotel has got it right! The moment we got in the lobby we were greeted with smiling faces and they asked about our day. Nice to get such a warm welcome after a day on airplanes with 2 kids. We stayed a week and found the front desk staff to be so...

We are an older hotel but we are well maintained and we are sorry you left with the impression that we were dated.

Me and my girlfriend came to Victoria from Vancouver on a whim, and found this place by accident. The location of this hotel is near downtown, and there are public transports near by. What great was that the staff here really know how to make their guests happy! We came in and we're both taken by surprise on how funny...

The room was clean had a new TV with Cable which was nice. For a room facing the parking lot on ground level some shears would have been nice so we could let some light in without being on display. Bed was very firm, not sure if softer beds were an option. The pool (the reason we chose this hotel)...

Stayed in the Hojo at Victoria city center many times. The experience here was always fantastic. Rooms were nice, beds were comfortable. The facilities are all clean. The front desk staff was very friendly and approachable. Told them I forgot my toothbrush and what not, and they send someone to provide us what we needed quickly. There is an indoor...

The building and furniture are dated, but the room was clean and staff friendly. The bar/restaurant was closed during my stay due to a liquor license issue. The location is good, lots of walking trails, close to the main roads downtown and fairly quiet.
