Nice hotel on the outskirts of town

Posted Jul 30, 2015
Pros: The outdoor pool with the view of the mountains - perfect for me and fun for the kids.
Cons: Not much.
Location: Midway between downtown and the airport. Elk Lake on one side, Commonwealth Pool on the other. Hike up Mt. Doug.
This hotel was a nice spot for us to end our stay in Victoria. It is on the outskirts of town and has close amenities without being in the heart of the city. It has a nice deep pool (3 1/2' at one end to 8' at the other) that the kids loved with a view of the mountains. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. I had a suite with a kitchen that had enough dishes for all (so important since a lot of places will give you minimal dishes, this place had enough for 6). It was nice and quiet. There is a shopping center on the other side of the highway with all the stores you need, and another one down the street. A short drive to downtown and the airport. We had an early flight in the morning, so being centrally located like that was perfect.

Tolles Hotel im Außenbezirk von Victoria

Posted Jul 24, 2015
Pros: Der sehr große Pool sowie die Laundry zum Waschen. Das Zimmer war sehr groß und sehr ruhig. Zum Entspannen perfekt
Location: Vitoria, eine See perfekt zum Joggen. (10 Km eine Runde) Mehrere Geschäfte zum Einkaufen innerhalb eines Km.
Nach einem tollen Tag in Victoria haben wir es genossen, uns in dem sehr großen Pool zu entspannen. Es sind ca. 10 Minuten

Good place / Great location

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Was a guest recently and hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Room was overall just fine for us. Carpet could usr an update but otherwise room was clean & comfortable. Great pool & hot tub and we really liked the central location - easy access to different destinations in the area as well as the ferry. Would recommend staying here as a great affordable hotel with all the amenities expected.

Comfortable hotel centrally located

Posted Jun 23, 2015
Pros: Central location, clean room, 2 double comfortable beds, fridge, reasonable price
Cons: Fan/air conditioner that can be redirected away from the bed.
Location: Central Saanich hotel is less than 20 minutes to ferries, Butchart Gardens, Highlands parks hiking, downtown Victoria, Victoria airport
We looked for a hotel that would be convenient to Butchart Gardens, the Anacortes-Sidney ferry, downtown Victoria sights and restaurants, and hiking in nearby regional parks. This Howard Johnson hotel at Elk Lake is less than 20 minutes from the heart of downtown Victoria, the same distance from Butchart Gardens. We liked the fact it's not right in the midst of traffic and tourists - makes for a quieter stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Normally my family doesn't look forward to hotel stays because the beds are much harder than ours. Not so at this hotel - the beds were actually pretty comfortable and the 3 of us slept very well. My only pick would be that the fan/air conditioner blows directly on whoever sleeps in the bed next to it so we didn't end up using it much. Parking was close and secure, the room was clean and comfortable with a small fridge we used for a few items. We would definitely stay here again.

Loved the room

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Pros: Very clean and large room
Cons: no
Location: Its Victoria - lots to do and see
We were very happy with our stay. The room was large, compared to most. Coffee, tea, water and snack bars - all an added plus. We were flying out very early and the snacks were very appreciated. Will stay again.
