Guest Comments

Overall guests are very pleased with their stay at the Embassy Inn Hotel and would highly recommend to other travellers. They especially like the ultra convenient location, free breakfast and free parking. The hotel is completing some renovations in early 2022 and guests are already raving about the updated rooms and washrooms. Some guests did note that the heating system was a bit antiquated, it could be noisy near the elevator/ice machine and there wasn't much in the way of a view. 

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
