“The best Value in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

I visit Victoria about 8 times a year. I used to shop around and stay at random hotels until about 2 years ago when I stayed at the Gorge Road Travelodge. The location is great for heading downtown or up Island. The rooms are clean and spacious. In the morning I enjoy the walk through the park to the walkway along the Gorge. The front desk has always been helpful and informative.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side face the park and water. They tend to be quieter as well.

This hotel is located away from the tourist area and the downtown core, which in Victoria is a good thing. The downtown area has really gone downhill over the last few years. This hotels location at the Gorge waterway (river?) makes for a very nice neighbor-hood/ country feel. The downtown and local tourist area is close enough by way of the Galloping Goose Trail, which is not too far away to access from the hotel. The price was excellent for the room. Two comfortable queen size beds with modern bedspreads and good, large pillows that didn't smell of the last people who laid their heads upon them. The large flat screen t.v. was nice. The shower flow was powerful. They do take pets which is great. The woman at the reception was friendly, sincere and courteous. My only issue is the stairs outside, if someone is running up them it can be quite noisy.
The room was quite clean as well. Yes the hotel is a little older, as many are the world over. They can't all be new. As long as it sparkles with cleanliness who cares how old a hotel is? I would stay there again and recommend it to friends. Why stay on the noisy strip when this little gem is tucked away around the corner on a serene waterway?

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I am so pleased to hear that you found great value in our accommodations which is exactly what we strive to offer. Our location, just outside of the downtown core, certainly does have its advantages including a quiet, family friendly neighbourhood atmosphere along with quick and convenient access to most parts of Victoria while offering spectacular views of the Upper Harbour. I am glad that you enjoyed it. We are also very proud of the cleanliness of our hotel which can be attributed to an experienced and dedicated housekeeping team which we are very proud has earned us the Travelodge Canada Quality Excellence designation for our last 3 consecutive inspections. Thanks for noticing our hard work and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

We just spent our annual Christmas vacation at the Travelodge Victoria. We expected more from this hotel. We felt that the fact that we spent a week here was to our disadvantage. We were skipped over, and missed numerous times for housekeeping. We even had to go to the Front Desk to ask for towels, because the housekeeping staff had left for the day, and not serviced our room. Apparently, the staff only services an extended stay room two times during each week. Also, we used the guest computer available for use in the lobby, although every time my husband went to use it he was asked if he was a guest by the Front Desk clerk.
Geez, after you've stayed somewhere for a couple days doesn't the staff recognize the guests!

Thank you for taking the time to share your most recent experience at our hotel. I am sorry if we did not meet your expectations. Extended stay guests typically pay the lowest rate in the hotel which is why we only provide limited housekeeping service. By keeping costs down, we are able to pass the savings on to our guests. I do apologize for any inconvenience or misunderstanding this may have caused. If additional housekeeping services are required, we are happy to oblige and offer it to our guests if requested within a reasonable time frame. In regards to our lobby computer, we do get a lot of our restaurant guests using the computer which is why the front desk tries to be diligent to ensure that it is only used by hotel guests. I apologize that we failed to recognize your husband as a hotel guest. If you wish to discuss this further, please contact me at darryl@travelodgevictoria.com Please know that guest satisfaction is very important to us and we will do whatever we can to rectify any outstanding issues in the hopes that you will consider us again in the future. We pride ourselves on maintaining our brand promise of "Nice Rooms, Great People!"

I stayed with my Family at the hotel on August 2011. The hotel is simple and a bit outdated but it was clean and the staff were very friendly (come to think of it everyone in Victoria was very friendly). The beds were very comfortable and the hotel was very easy to find even though I had never driven around Victoria before. The breakfast was very good and price was reasonable. The lady at the restaurant was very friendly and made us feel at home. Great value for the price.

Room Tip: try to get a room on the lower level, there is no elevator.

Last month we had to find a pet-friendly hotel in Victoria and needed to be close to the emergency vet clinic. We selected this hotel based totally on location. The price was quite low so our expectations were not high but we were pleasantly surpised. We have stayed in many luxury hotels with beds that were not as comfortable as this one. And the bed linens were immactulate! For this price it was an absolute deal!

Thanks for sharing your most recent experience at our hotel. I hope that everything went well at the vet clinic. We value our pet guests as much as our regular guests. I'm glad that you enjoyed your guest room and that you found our new beds to be very comfortable. Next time you're in town, be sure to ask our front desk about our luxury pet beds also complete with white bed linens!
