The place is a glorified old motel that has the proverbial lipstick attached to it in the form of vibrant colors and catchy phrases. The rooms are absolutely horrible, small and outdated- and overpriced. If you can stay anywhere else in Victoria, please do!

Hi Traveler! Thanks for taking the time to review us. We took an old motel and totally turned it into an homage to retro times with all of the modern comforts we’d expect in 2019. We’re sorry you don’t love our upcycled concept and our funky décor. We’ve won housekeeping awards from the BC Hotel Association for two years running and I’m really shocked to hear you found our rooms stale and horrible. We’d love to hear a little bit more about your stay! Please don’t hesitate to reach out directly.

Funky style, well priced, fun

Pros: This place has personality in spades. There's a great rec room downstairs from the lobby with ping pong tables, tv's and Nintendo Wii's.
Cons: Better room ventilation, or AC. It was a little stuffy and warm in our room, despite open windows and fans, and cool outside temp.
Location: Shopping mall directly across the street. A taxi into town will cost about $10 each way.
Stayed for two nights in September. The design style of the hotel is really fun - bright colors and textures, mixed with vintage artifacts make this a hip, approachable venue. A very different, and welcomed, experience compared to traditionally 'stuffy' hotels. Admittedly, I put the hotel staff to task in coordinating excursions, transportation, and dining. They did a fantastic job.
