Maybe the provincial government is going to buy it to house junkies!

 

Heck if the Province was going to pay you 3x what the property was worth then who cares about reviews!

it'd be one thing if this was the island travel inn.  at least it has low prices to go with its brutal reviews.  but by all appearances the ramada charges well over 200/nt.

Avoid this dump at all cost. Filthy rooms, reeks of cigarettes, I HAD A DEAD MOUSE IN A TRAP UNDER THE BED! I was also billed $250 for allegedly smoking in my room! The room already smelled like an ashtray. AVOID!

 

 

 

under new Mangement. Stayed 2 nighs. Very poorly managed. rooms are run down and unclean. Beds need replacing. Located in a run down area of the city. Uncomfortable walking out in the evenings. Service staff are not friendly. All staff were Arabic and communicated in their language within themselves. It is uncomfortable for an outsider visiting Victoria B.C.

^Is there a preferred language I should use when talking within myself?

Not only were the staff Arabic, they insisted on using their Arabic numbering system on the room doors!

the mouse guy can't have it both ways.  if he found a live mouse he'd probably complain too.

 

"run down area of the city"  across from the newest condos/apartments in the city.  7 blocks from the empress

It really feels like hotels in Victoria are either amazing or awful. Where are the normal, average hotels? We have maybe 1 or 2

 

It is kind of weird, isn't it? The Holiday Inn in Colwood is the only mid-range hotel to open in Greater Victoria in how many years?

I would also count the Elk Lake Howard Johnson and Accent Inn as rare mid range options

What about the one at Douglas/Hillside and the one across from Topaz Park? Or some of the smaller ones in James Bay? I'm not sure I'm getting our definitions here. So we're saying the Chateau Victoria is amazing?

most of my friends only stay in hotels with roman numerals on the room doors.

Arbutus inn? Pretty sure it sucks. The one across from topaz might be okay.
Im talking about clean, basic, newer, average name brand hotels.

I dunno, the mid-range seems to be served pretty well:

  • 2 downtown best westerns
  • Royal Scot
  • Accent Inn/Hotel Zed
  • 2 Days Inns, downtown, gorge
  • Quality Inn downtown
  • Comfort Inn by mayfair
  • Victoria Regent
  • Sandman

When in Rome. But when in Arabia it spoils the atmosphere somewhat.
