Verified Reviews of Embassy Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Budget Hotel Next to the Parliament Building."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We stayed in the tower which is the non renovated building of this hotel. The rooms are dated, not air conditioned and a bit musty. The location is good next door to the parliament building and waterfront. The complimentary hot buffet breakfast and parking were good. We stayed here because we were looking for a hotel that had good value and had high customer reviews. I don't feel that the Embassy Inn lived up to the online reviews. This hotel was too dated and didn't feel secure with key access. The beds were uncomfortable and the linens had seen better days. The property and this building were clean, but dated. I doubt we will be staying here again because there are more modern properties in the same area at comparable rates.

Response from Management on 16-Jul-2015:
Thank you for the review of your group's stay with us. I am pleased to hear you felt the location, free breakfast and parking was a good value. I am sorry about your other comments but would like to state that our posted information on HotelPlanner clearly states the differences between our Tower Building, (3 star quality and air-conditioned) and our Harbour Wing, (2 star quality with no air-conditioning) which is the building you stayed in, not the Tower.The rate for the Harbour Wing is much lower than the Tower. I feel the charge we provided was equal to the quality of the Harbour Wing. I would also like to point out that only about 25% of hotels in Victoria provide air-conditioning.
"Perfect Amenities"

Lovely views, convenient and comfortable.

"Lovely Location"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Best location in the beautiful city of Victoria, five minutes walk from every interesting place (includes the fisherman's wharf). Professional, friendly and keen to assist. Very nice rooms at a good rate. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to explore the beauty of this city. We loved the hotel and we loved the city. Thank you.

Property Description

We are located within the Inner Harbor area of sunny Victoria, BC. Our hotel consists of two buildings-the Harbour Building (the original of the two) which has motel style access and 33 basic guest rooms however unfortunately no air conditioning. The second building is called The Tower Building, we have recently did many upgrade that include: brand new beds, triple sheeting, drapes and sheers. We also painted all the rooms, replaced the carpet, in room safes, upgraded our locks to key swipe cards, have refrigerators in all the rooms and brand new coffee makers and kettles. All rooms and suites in the Tower have balconies and air conditioning and include a full hot breakfast buffet, aprking and high speed wifi. Our location is within 15 minutes walking distance to all major downtown attractions. If you check our trip advisor you will see a majority of our comments are based on how friendly our staff are and the cleanliness of our hotel.

We are a 3 key rated hotel on the green key program.
