Accent Inns Victoria: What Every Traveller Needs to Know

Accent Inns Victoria is located at the Victoria/Saanich border just outside of the downtown area. Greater Victoria is comprised of 13 municipalities and you basically won't notice when you leave one municipality and enter the next - it is a seamless transition. 

Accent Inns Victoria has got super-convenient access to bus routes and is good proximity to the main thoroughfares of Douglas and Blanshard Streets. While you could walk downtown, it is nearly 5 kms to the Inner Harbour and would take an average walker approximately 60-75 minutes. You would be much better off taking the free shuttle or hopping on the local transit. For just $5 you can buy a day pass that will allow you to hop on and off as many buses as you want in a day.

Visitors to Accent Inns Victoria will find one of the best burger joints in town - Bin4 - located just next door and the recently expanded Mayfair Mall across the street. Mayfair is the largest mall in Greater Victoria with anchor tenants such as The Bay, Indigo Bookstore, Roots, Eddie Bauer, SportCheck, LLBean and many, many more. You could literally spend hours shopping at this mall.

Also nearby is another shopping destination called Uptown. Uptown is an outdoor mall style venue where you will find numerous small boutiques as well as large retailers such as WalMart, BestBuy, Michaels, Whole Foods and PetSmart. Free parking onsite.

What does "bike friendly" and "motorcycle friendly" really mean?

Eye bolts cemented in to secure your motorbike. Chains and locks provided by Accent Inn during your stay.

Did you do a double-take wondering what it means for an inn to be "bike friendly" or "motorcycle friendly"? I certainly did.

Here's what I found:

  • Bike friendly - all Accent Inns (not just this one in Victoria) have ground floor rooms you can store your bike in, a wash and tuning station with professional-grade stand with cleaning rags and a tool kit at your disposal for any repairs you may need
  • Motorcycle friendly - All Accent inns also provide secure motorcycle parking, a heavy-duty bike-friendly chain and lock combo, all-weather cover for your ride and a bike washing station including use of cleaning rags. 

Oh, and a free Bike Love sticker! If I was coming into town on two wheels, I would definitely want to stay here!

Policies

  • Children are welcome however there are no cribs or roll-away beds available

Guest Comments

Overall most guests of Accent Inns Victoria give the property a good to excellent rating. They find it clean with helpful, friendly staff. Guests with pets especially liked the welcome package that contained things like dog treats, poop bags and a bandana. Some people found the location a bit noisy with traffic/sirens and recommend you bring ear plugs. Others found it quiet. It may depend on where your room is located.

We hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Victoria BC and recommend you rent an RV to explore the rest of Vancouver Island. Find local RV rentals here
