            No where near the center of Victoria. Have to catch bus for $5.

            What I liked best at B.R.I. was the beds! They were so comfortable!

            I didn't like the pillows; too soft for my likings.

            They could not find our booking .it was a very big hassle just to get checked in...the desk clerk was less that helpfull..

            The stuff was nice and helpful, the swimming pull was great! the room was very comfortable for a family with children

            We find this hotel convient, based on location. We enjoy taking in a hockey game when we come to Victoria. The hotel is affordable for our budget. Lastly, it's pet friendly, well suited for our dog. We stay here a couple times per year and have for three years.

            Our room this time wasn't as desirable. The bed was a bit stingy smelling and the shower didn't work to full pressure, water continued to pour out of the tap while the shower was on.I Did report this to the front desk upon leaving. We might just look for other places to stay, sorry.

            Comfort at great prices. We have the use of a microwave as well as a coffee pot, which makes it possible to make easy meals. It is located well for easy access to all of Victoria's attractions, and is a friendly, relaxing place to stay.

          • Older travelers

            Staff friendliness and helpfulness, cleanliness of room and setting. Good value for money. Have been there three times in the past year for medical trips to the city.

            Tv didn't work too well !

            Security was a concern. One morning, there was a security team there followed by police. The next night someone tried to break into my room. Also, is an older style hotel, no air conditioning.....a fan...and open windows. Some screens, drapery broken.

            The pool was utilized most. We checked in specifically for our daughter to just play in the pool. And actually did not sleep there. We returned in the morning and watched tv in the room for a bit before returning the keycards. However, we did stay here in early december overnight for 2 nights and it was very comfortable and affordable.

            conveniently located, clean, friendly staff, good value.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Friendly staff. Located right on the 30\31 bus route with shopping centre opposite and Denny's 24/7 restaurant nearly next door. Room was comfortable but smallish with bathroom as part of the bedroom but separate toilet and good shower. Coffee making facilities. Small fridge as well.

            No separate bathroom. No kettle for tea making.
