Historic Hotel in Historic Victoria
This is a historic hotel in downtown Victoria. We enjoyed that but not the stairs. The room had two chairs, a desk and one end table. There was a refrigerator but no microwave. There was no hair dryer or a place for soap and shampoo in the shower. There was no air conditioning but there were three windows for a cool breeze and a view. The location was good, we just walked a couple blocks to the historic part of town. There was parking but it took us a couple tries before a space was available. We had dinner in the restaurant below the hotel. The food was good.

Good Choice in Victoria
James Bay Inn is located in a quiet, historic residential neighborhood,10-15 minutes walk from many downtown attractions. While rooms are basic and the Inn is dated, those conditions add to its historic feel. Note that there is no elevator, so access to the rooms requires climbing stairs. The Inn's restaurant offers good food, reasonably priced. You can access the Inn using public transport from the airport for $5.00 Canadian (get directions at the airport information booth). For the bus trip, take No. 88 from the airport to McTavish exchange station (5 min trip). Transfer to No. 72 and take it to the end of the line leaving you at the Parliament Building on Government Street (about 50 minutes). Walk south three blocks and you reach the Inn. The bus driver and locals are very helpful if you have questions.
