The Helm's Inn in Victoria, B.C.
This is our go to hotel in Victoria. It is always clean. The staff are always polite, respectful and courteous. It is located across from Beaconsfield Park, near tourist attractions and within easy walking distance to shop. Our room had kitchen facillities so breakfast was a snap. We were able to have "happy hour" in our room. In the room there is adequate room to move around. The beds are comfortable. Windows open....a must for my husband. Lighting is good....with both pot lights and lamps. There was a small kitchen table with 2 chairs next to the kitchen area. A comphy chair sat in the corner close to the bed and a lamp for reading. Towels were not changed if hung up and were changed if left in the tub. Hair product was good. Restaurants are nearby.....The Old Spaghetti House, The Sticky Wicket. For our 3rd night we found an excellent burger house....The Pink Bicycle on Blanchard within walking distance. Lunches we enjoyed in the Irish Times, the Bard and Banker and the Sticky Wicket. The hotel has parking for $5 a night. It seems secure and adequate. Rooms have been renovated since we started staying here on our yearly visits. More parking is currently being added. Next the outside is slated to be renovated. At the back there is a small seating area surrounded by gardens. We always sleep well at this hotel as the area is quiet at night.

Central Inn
Helms Inn was a great hotel. It is a little dated outside, but the inside of the hotel has been well cared for and kept up. They are also working on the exterior currently. The room we had was right off the courtyard, so we had a nice view and some sun. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the area, staff and property. The location is perfect. It's right behind the museum, across the street from Beacon Hill park and a short walk to the Empress, Parliament Buildings or the bustle of Douglas Street.

Very satisfied.
Had a lovely stay, room was clean and spacious, good value for the cost. Very close to downtown which is a big plus. Also appreciate on-site parking, $5 per night is very reasonable. The staff is very helpful and friendly, I will stay at Helm's again!
