The Days Inn Victoria Uptown is located on the beautiful Gorge Waterway just north of downtown. The name Days Inn Victoria Uptown is somewhat confusing for locals since we now have the Uptown Shopping Centre but it is nearly 3 km away, so it's not overly common to associate the two together. If you were to ask a local where this particular hotel was located, they likely couldn't tell you but if you ask for the Days Inn on the Gorge, they'll know exactly what you mean.

The hotel is situated in a bit of a residential area with lowrise apartment buildings pretty much lining the Gorge in this area. But there are still good amenities closeby including Heckler's Bar & Grill and Glo Restaurat & Lounge - both just down the street (one to the east and one to the west from the hotel). Also is the very popular Galloping Goose Regional Trail. The "Goose" as it is affectionately known as to locals, is an extensive trail connecting Sidney to Sooke. Hop on your bike and you can either head towards town or cruise out towards the peninsula or western communities. The trail is also friendly for people walking.
Another very popular and convenient activity in the area is the Harbour Ferry. These small electric boats run seasonally and make regularly scheduled stops between various spots along the Gorge, the Upper Harbour District and Inner Harbour including the very popular Fisherman's Wharf, Spinnakers Brewpub and of course, right downtown. Get details on schedules and fares on their website.
The hotel is in good proximity to the newly expanded Mayfair Mall which is the largest indoor mall in Victoria. There you'll find shops such as The Bay, Roots, Eddie Bauer, LL Bean, Indigo Bookstore and numerous other stores and boutique shops. The hotel is situated on the #11 BC Transit bus route.
Overall the majority of guests enjoyed their stay at the Days Inn Victoria Uptown, providing an average rating of good. They found the rooms clean with the amenities they expected although somewhat small in size. Some guests felt the walls were not well insulated and found that sound travelled easily. They liked the proximity to the dog park but weren't crazy about the fact that there was no elevator. They liked the free parking but found there was not enough of it. Generally people found the location convenient and would stay again next time they are in Victoria.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Victoria BC.
