Great Place to Stay
Nice place to stay.. reasonably priced.. very close to inner harbor and Speggetti Factory is very close and many other places to eat very easy walk... Our car stayed parked the whole 3 days we were there.. Nice room to relax in during the evenings...

Disappointing service in restaurant 😞
Staff was good, the food on the restaurant was great. The wait staff walked off the job while there were customers in the restaurant. It was atrocious! There was confusion on everyone’s part. I’m appalled that someone would do this. There was no one available to take care of the customers. In the future I hope they are able garner staff that actually wants to be there.

Ideal For Victoria
My husband & I are so glad we chose Helms Inn for our three night stay in Victoria. GREAT location! We could easily walk to tourist attractions, shops, restaurants etc. Ample parking, we didn't use our car at all during our time in Victoria. Chris at the reception desk gave us a warm welcome, and we had access to our room a bit earlier than regular check in time, which we greatly appreciated. We were in room 309 which I highly recommend. Two rooms, one a combo kitchen and living room space, the other a spacious bedroom with 2 comfortable queen beds. Bathroom was spacious. The room was spotless, spacious, and quiet. If we are even in Victoria again there is no other place I'd consider staying. Thank You Helms Inn for making our time in Victoria so special!!
