Good 6.0
The hotel is dirty and needs major upgrades. The original carpet, tub, sink, toilet and fixtures are still in place. It was sweltering hit with 0 air movement. Once in room, and the old school air conditioner turned on, the room did not cool down until the next morning, then you had to step out in the moody sweltering heated hallways. Although the bed was very comfortable, we will not be returning

Clean and functional. A bit tired. ID requirment
Even though the hotel looks a bit tired, it was clean, and it worked well for a quick gateway to the overpriced Victoria. Our concern was when we were checking in, without asking permission, they were taking a copy of my driver's license. The front desk clerk went to grab the supervisor, and he let me know that it was a standard procedure, and told me that "in several hotels and countries they keep copies of IDs and even passports". In the end, he agreed not to keep a copy of my driver's license. I travel very frequently to Victoria, and this is the only hotel that has requested this document.

Great Stay
This is an older property but it has been very well-maintained. Reception staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms are clean and reasonably quiet. Location is great: close to restaurants, Mayfair Mall, and all the downtown tourist spots.

Stay Somewhere Else
It was dirty. Sooooo dirty. I can't even blame the current house keepers because this level of filth is from years of neglect. Chunks of countertop missing in the bathroom, missing baseboards, dirty grout, splatter on the walls in the bathroom. We didn't spend any time there other than sleeping but I think the area might be sketchy. There were two guys outside leaning against the building and sharing a bottle the one evening. Safety- our room was in the basement and the window was open when we arrived...if I hadn't noticed and closed it, anyone could have come in. Also, I'm pretty sure hotel room doors are supposed to close on their own for fire regulations but our room didnt. The door to the stairwell also was propped open. Spend an extra $40 and get somewhere better.
