Helms Inn, Victoria
A real hidden gem! Highly recommended!
Wonderful! Ryan, at the front desk, was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the area, etc. The room was immaculate and MUCH larger than expected. The full kitchen was well appointed with new dishes, etc. Quiet, clean, very comfortable!

Excellent location, poor bed quality
The location is excellent. The picturesque Beacon Hill park is across the street, the BC museum is next door, the BC Legislative building is 2 blocks away as is the stunning waterfront walk, a quant little grocery store is also nearby and tons of shopping and eating options are within walking distance. The room was roomy and had a full kitchen. The kitchen was basically stocked. It also had a separate entrance. It was good value for the area. The bathroom had a lower ceiling (about 7 ft). The room we were in was located adjacent to a laundry room. There was a continuous, intermittent dull humming from the adjacent room from the morning until bedtime. It was wearing. The bed we slept in had a permanent indentation that made sleeping extremely uncomfortable. I woke up sore every night. The pillows had way too much loft and firmness for us. The floor was dirty and we picked up 4 hairballs. The throw pillows on the bed were filthy, old and gross. The sheets ended up getting pretty dirty as my 3 year old kept climbing up and down (the dirt would come off of his socks from the dirty floor). We could hear the people above us (they were not overly loud) and it woke us up two out of three nights. There were only two chairs and three of us so we couldn't eat together. Wifi worked most of the time, but not all of the time. Bottom line: We would not stay here again because of the poor sleep quality and dirty floor.
