Exceptional 10.0
our first choice
This is our second stay here. We come in on The Clipper from Seattle, and it couldn't be more convenient, both coming & going. If they can accommodate early check or late check-out, they will do so without fuss. If not, they are pleasant and proactive about keeping our bags safe while we wander. The staff is professional & kind. The studio rooms are perfect for us (clean & modern), and are equipped nicely --- with a kitchenette, even! The lobby is comfy and the onsite bar/restaurant is great. This is out first choice of places to stay for a quick getaway.

Great rates and location
The location is great. When I got there, it was early, and they didn't have my type of room available, so they offered me a premium room for a great rate. The room was stellar. My minor nit: They don't have a sundries shop. There are a couple places not far away, but when you realize at 10pm that you forgot your toothbrush, you really don't want to have to go out lurking to find one. :) I would definitely stay there again. Great rates and location!

Good but not great
Good stay. Carpet need cleaning not just vacuum. Especially units has a full kitchen, carpet is easily dirtied by food droppings and spilled drinks. Our first unit smelled bad. Changed to a different unit the next day which the carpet still look tired and dirty.

Very Good 8.0
An Enjoyable Stay
We were very pleased with our stay at the Oswego Hotel. It was a quiet hotel with a good staff. The location was very convenient to the center of Victoria. It was a perfect walking distance without being too far. The distance to the the ferry was only one block.

Boutique hotel in beautiful location
Boutique hotel in very convenient area. Very classy suite with separate living room/kitchen and bedroom. Bath was a little inconvenient and bed size was only a double but it was a nice stay

Poor 2.0
An Extremely Disappointing Hotel
We arrived one hour after the check in time after a stressful day of travel, and our room was not ready. They said it would take another hour. This was disheartening bevause we were traveing with our six year old. After some discussion, they were able to get us into a room. There was no airconditioning and the carpet looked very dirty. The bed was small and uncomfortable. The cooking equipment in the kitchen was very dirty. The room service food was expensive and disappointing. This was a very underwhelming experience for the price and I would definitely not stay here again.

Very Good 8.0
Stayed for 5 days of exploring and triathlon. Hotel in great location. Bed was much smaller than expected. Also we had a southern facing room which gave us great views of Olympic Nat Park but with no AC and only small windows in the living room it was rather warm.

Great location and accommodations
Fantastic accommodations, location and service. Very clean. Only complaint was that the coffee was too finely ground for French press and made really sludgy coffee.
