PERFECT hotel! A review of Helm's Inn
I will rave forever about this hotel! My husband and I are from Portland, Oregon, and since we're newlyweds, we don't exactly have a lot of money to spend vacationing! However, since Victoria is only a 5 hour drive, its a perfect getaway spot for a three day weekend. Helms Inn is only three blocks from the Harbor and you can walk there in about 5 minutes. We never pay for transportation! And the hotel is only $60 a night US dollar, and if you stay once and return, you get an automatic 15% off the next time. We are only paying $50 US to stay in a room with a king size bed, kitchenette, bathroom, etc... and the furnishings are WONDERFUL! It is the best kept secret, and we only heard about it by word of mouth! They provide fresh flowers and a small continental breakfast every morning. They also have free internet in the cute "lobby." It is a small, private hotel, but right next to the park and most of the units overlook the big park! I absolutely love it here, and I encourage everyone to try it. They definitely do not lack in anywhere for the money. Its an awesome place!
