This guide of motels and hotels in Victoria BC is written by a local so I have the advantage of knowing this city, and can highlight nearby activities and the amenities you may be most interested in. If you are looking for alternative accommodations to motels and hotels in Victoria BC, be sure to consult our guide to over 40 Victoria Bed and Breakfast locations or our listing of Vancouver Island Camping spots that are all located within a one-hour drive of the Inner Harbour.
With so many sights to see and activities to attend in the downtown area, this is naturally where many people choose to stay. Also we have an incredible walkability score of 99, making it a dream for vacationers who like to walk. But the convenience to nearby attractions usually comes at a price so expect to pay a lot more in order to stay in downtown Victoria. The downtown motels and hotels in Victoria BC in alphabetical order are:
Located just outside the downtown area, these motels and hotels in Victoria BC generally offer better value for money. They are all conveniently located on public transit and can be especially handy for large travelling groups (such as sports teams) or for visitors who plan to have a vehicle and want a good base location for their daily adventures.
If you want a quiet, neighbourhood feel then these lodging options could be perfect for you. With the exception of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel which is a luxury purpose-built hotel overlooking the ocean (and recently ranked as one of the best in all of Victoria and Vancouver by US News) the other 3 are stately historic properties nestled in some of the oldest neighbourhoods of Victoria.
The region of Greater Victoria known as the Peninsula includes the town of Sidney as well as parts of Saanich, Central Saanich and North Saanich. This is a relatively vast area stretching approximately 25 kms. You can not walk to downtown Victoria from these properties. Accommodations in this area are relatively convenient to both BC Ferries and Washington State Ferries, the Victoria International Airport as well as popular tourist destinations such as the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea, Butterfly Gardens and the world renowned Butchart Gardens.
Lodging options in this section include some that are convenient to city amenities and those that are more of a forest retreat. And even with the somewhat remoteness of some of these, all but a couple have access to public transit.
