Great hotel for the price

Posted Jul 2, 2015
Better than I expected having paid a low price for the room. Comparatively to other inns and motels this place is a great deal. No weird smells, clean, had lots of appliances and cooking ware to use in room. good sound insulation.

Close to the mall and bus lines

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Red Lion was an easy to find hotel not far from downtown Victoria. It was only about a 7 minute walk from the main bus line. The price was good and the staff was fantastic and the room was clean. They upgraded us for free to a larger room, but the beds were uncomfortable. That was the only downside.

Hotel close to many amenities eg. shopping malls.

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: It was close to shopping
Cons: It neede overall upgrading, It needs an overall thorough cleaning. as it was not clean.
Location: There is lots to do in Victoria. You should not be bored but you will need a vehicle. .
Our room was very small. We stayed one night mainly to the lack of cleanliness. Beds not great although for a one or 2 night stay would be OK. Best to take your own pillow. Only one person at reception which made checking in rather disorganized. Receptiona area small. Hotel very old and has not been upgraded. We had a nice small sink and cupboards in our room which was due to a fire not long ago.

Clean and Courteous

Posted Jun 26, 2015
Pros: everything
Cons: location... but who really cares
Location: It was actually fairly close to everything we wanted to do downtown. We had a car and came in late at night and the hotel was really easy to find.
The room was very clean and comfortable, the hotel itself was very quiet even though I was worried that it wouldn't be. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. I really liked the cutlery and dishes available in the room. I would definitely stay here again.

They did not provide breakfast

They did not provide breakfast saying expedia is wrongly advertising about breakfast.

Pros: kitchen in rooms were great, access to galloping goose trail even better.
Cons: The third floor has a big skylight in the room. Since it's summer and the sun rises at 430 am the room was too bright!! They need a shade over it!!
Location: galloping goose trail literally outside the door!
despite it's attachment to a strip club (surprise for us when we arrived) the hotel rooms were well kept and clean. The occasional unsavory character was outside but overall it felt safe and a decent place to stay

Great place to stay for a reasonable price

Posted Jun 18, 2015
The staff was friendly and social. I was surprised that Red Lion in Victoria BC is just an average hotel. I'm used to Red Lion being top notch. You wouldn't understand without visiting though. It's a beautiful place with many beautiful and historical sites. This hotel was perfect for my fiance and me on a short romantic getaway!

Nice hotel near downtown

Posted Jun 18, 2015
Room clean; Had microwave, refrigerator and hotplate. Reception clerk courteous but surly; strip club on the back with separate parking; also liquor store attached to hotel so that was different. Nice pool. Also close to Hwy 17 close. Not enough parking in front of the hotel but enough in the back. Chinese restaurant on premise and surprisingly good food but poor service. Overall, not bad for the price we made.
