When you think location, location, location then The Days Inn on the Harbour delivers. As the name implies, it is right on the harbour and directly across the street from the Coho vehicle ferry terminal. The Coho terminal (formally known as the Blackball Ferry Terminal) is right beside the Clipper foot passenger ferry terminal. It doesn't get more convenient than that for our American visitors.
Disclaimer: I may make a small commission from some of the links on this page.
In addition to the very convenient ferry terminals, guests at the Days Inn on the Harbour can literally step outside and be in the heart of the action. Beside the Blackball ferry terminal is the Robert Bateman Gallery housed in the stately Canadian Pacific Railway Steamship Terminal building. The original steamship building was torn down in 1924 and replaced with the current one in 1926. Once the steamship terminated their passenger service the building was utilized for other businesses including Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum for over 50 years until it closed in 2010. The Province renovated and upgraded the building in 2016 and it has been home to the Robert Bateman Gallery, a Starbucks and the Steamship Grill & Bar since.
Also nearby is the Parliament Buildings where you can enjoy a free 45-minute tour (tickets available out front), the Royal BC Museum and IMAX theatre and of course, the bustling inner harbour. With a fantastic walkability score of 99 in downtown Victoria, the city begs you to explore. And when you're done for the day, relax by the pool at Days Inn on the Harbour or enjoy the stunning views from the patio. The hotel is not air conditioned.
Overall guests to the property gave a rating of good. They loved the location - and who wouldn't if convenience to the harbour and multiple dining options is what you want. They also commented that due to the location, some found it noisy. Some guests found the temperature of the rooms unbearable as there is no air conditioning although there are balconies. Also, it was noted that the property is somewhat dated and dingy but clean. Guests love the free on-site parking but thought there wasn't enough to accommodate all the visitors.
We hope you enjoy your stay at the Days Inn on the Harbour in beautiful downtown Victoria.
