Still stunned after last night. Slept in & working thru the last crazy driving 3 days & last night's immigration near- fiasco. Slept in until 9:30 am & made my self tea in a teapot in my "mini-suite" -- SI that champagne black tea is very good! Snacked & planned next two days. Then, went downtown Victoria during late afternoon & …
Finally Victoria. What a nice city. Not to big not to small. Too bad that we stayed just for two nights. We tried to go to a night club, but the line was so long. So we went just to pub for some beer. Time for bed. The next day we went to the Butcharts Garden and to an Italian restaurant for dinner. The weather was rainy through the day, but the …
Monday 27 Sept 2010 – Victoria, Vancouver Island
A great night's sleep for us both!! Today’s plan is to get a local No.11 bus downtown and find a shuttle out to Butchart’s Gardens. Breakfast today was pretty ordinary but inexpensive.
We chatted to a Chinese girl at the bus stop who was only in Canada for a few …
... 63 (can't seem to find how he died even after doing searches on the internet). It just shows that even with a ton of money - when it's your time to go -it's your time.
Mom and I walked through the castle and looked at all the pictures and read all the plaques of information. I took tons of pictures while we toured the castle.
As we were leaving the castle, we took a look at the souvenir shop. I did my usual type of shoping and took ...
... trees, fountains, waterfalls, and sculptures. There were also hundreds of people there and most from other countries. Of all days to forget my phone and camera at the hotel. I did have my iPad in the truck but it had very little power and it ran out of battery about half way through the visit. Darn! We drive back to the hotel and just hang out and watch television. Yay, first time in weeks that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Howard Johnson City Center Victoria
We have just returned to snowy and cold Toronto from spending 10 days
Loved Victoria Hojo
We visited Victoria, capital of British Columbia during the month of January05, to escape from the harsh weather of Toronto.
The city is great, beautiful, clean, very little polution, mild weather,and
above all small with minimal traffic.
However, the hotel we stayed at, Howard Johnson Hotel, City Center
was excellent. The suite was fairly large with one separate bedroom,
full kitchen facility. The hotel was clean, and the service was superb. We
have to mention the front desk agent Marlene, she was very helpful.
We had planned to stay for one week but we liked the hotel so much that we stayed for two weeks.
We would recommend Howard Johnson Hotel, City Center , to any one
visiting Victoria, B.C.
Christmas Tour 2004
Just spent 5 wonderful days on an all exclusive tour in Victoria It was hosted by Howard Johnson Hotel on Gorge Rd. We enjoyed it immensely It was everything we expected and then some. Thank you Howard Johnson Staff!
It Made Our Holiday
After 3 days of nothing but problems, we happen to come across a Ferry Special for Howard Johnson Hotel on Gorge Rd In Victoria BC Canada. We called and reserved. Once we got there the front desk clerk saw our frustration and gave us free upgrade. For the next three days we were so well taken care of. The room was huge with a full kitchen. The staff was super friendly and accommodating and the pool was the perfect place to relax. I am so impressed by the service of this Hotel I reccommend anyone visiting Victoria to stay there. Its a boutique style Hotel, the rooms are huge, but most of all the staff and service was what ended up making what could of been a terrible trip, excellent vacation away!
Excellent Stay in Victoria
The rooms were much larger than I am used to in Europe and also very clean. The staff were very friendly and I thank you all for making my first vist to Canada a good one.
Exceeded my expectations.
Exceeded my expectations. The staff, the hotel and facilities were excellent. They anticipated my needs and fulfiled them. The hotel went above and beyond their call of duty.
My husband and I visited Victoria in June with our two small children and had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Before finding the brochure for the Howard Johnson at the Tourist Information Centre, we looked at a few hotels in the downtown core and they were prohibitively expensive.
Friendly staff, I felt like my home, clean room, enjoyed stay
I was recommanded to stay at this hotel, and I really enjoyed, nice and friendly staff, clean rooms and I recommand to every one who visit victoria.
Enjoyed my Stay
I visit Victoria once a year (usually off season) and have found a nice hotel on Gorge Road. The Howard Johnson Hotel City Centre offers large rooms, swimming pool, in house laundry, much the same as the "suite Hotels" downtown. The price is very reasonable and is close to shopping and a nice cycle/walking trail called the "Galloping Goose". Staff are courteous and helpful. The restaurant serves great breakfast, large portions.
Great location , excellant service and reasonable room rates.
