Quality Inn Waddling Dog
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Central Saanich
Reviewed 30 July 2017

The hotel is getting some much needed renos....but the walls between rooms are very thin. I could hear my neighbours talking all night long ... It has all you need, but a bit basic...high seasons rates aren't good value at all.mthe receptionist was pretty poor. The Pub is fine...food very good, super cheap and great friendly service.

Quality Inn Waddling Dog is special. Despite of the work being done, they were able to accommodate guests day in and day out. I did not hear any noise during our stay though it is visible it is under renovation. Good job folks!! Room was nicely done, I like it since it still covered with old frames and furniture but it looks good. Breakfast is the usual but decent presentation by staff, clean room and enjoyable breakfast was serve simple and special....

We stopped over for one night and were pleased with the staff, the room and the breakfast. They were renovating and besides seeing construction equipment, they were quiet from 6pn til 9am...no issues. Would stay again if in the area

We booked one night at the waddling dog but we never stayed there : they told us they never received any reservation despite the confirmation we had in hand.
The receptionist was of no help even if we suspected some overbooking.
It was also very unpleasant as it was already late during the evening and we had a flight early the day after.

Please accept my sincere apology for the error that occurred with your reservation. When mistakes happen it is never a good situation, especially late at night with a flight to catch early the next morning. I hope that the rest of your travels were problem free and that you will consider returning to our newly renovated Inn, so that we can give you the quality service that you deserve.

Best regards,

The hotel is easy to find and is close to the airport. It is overflowing with character and I would normally have loved our stay. Unfortunately we arrived on a Monday night whilst the hotel was in the mist of having renovations done. It wasn't hard to look past all the building work to see how great the hotel would normally look. Our room had been recently finished and was quite lovely.
The upsetting thing was that we did not feel up to going out for a meal and decided to eat at the hotel. The restaurant is not open on a Monday night. So we asked about room service and were told that yes they could do it but it might be awhile before they could deliver it as they were very busy. Our only other option was to eat in the pub which was so noisy I could hardly think and they were having a poker tournament in the back room. The waitress was wonderful and did her best to get us a fairly quite spot to have dinner and even got them to turn the volume down on the TVs near us. The food when it came was mixed. My husband had the ribs and he said they were delicious. I on the other hand had the roast beef in Yorkshire pudding. The roast beef and gravy were nice but it was baked in a very large overcooked Yorkshire pudding. The pastry was burnt just that little bit too much to make it enjoyable. After all the trouble our waitress went to for us I did not complain but it was not a good meal.
Breakfast next morning was basic but ample and free. I would stay here again but not on a Monday night
