Victoria motels are an option for anyone traveling on a tight budget, or anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money. Even cheap hotels provide comfortable places to stay with many amenities. You might be surprised how much you'll get with for one low room rate. Choosing a cheap Victoria accommodation provider is not a compromise. It's a smart way to use your resources wisely and leave more funds for discovering the charms of this seaside city on Vancouver Island.
The guestrooms at the Mayfair Motel are more like an apartment rental, without the high rates. Located just minutes from downtown at 650 Speed Avenue, this quiet, comfortable provider of cheap Victoria accommodation is a great alternative to those expensive hotels found downtown. All of the rooms have coffee service and sitting areas-some have one bed and other suites have two. For a small upgrade fee, you could stay in a suite with a full kitchen. The Mayfair, like many Victoria motels, offers a discount to its senior guests. Within a short walk from Mayfair, you'll find many great things to do and the singular charm that makes Victoria such a fascinating place to visit.
Another one of the Victoria motels in the city center, the Super 8 joined the scene in 2004. Located at 2915 Douglas Street, the Super 8 is a short stroll away from the beautiful George Waterway and many of the downtown attractions. Unlike other downtown hotels, this lodging provider offers convenience without a premium price tag. The 51 guestrooms come with cozy linens, big-screen TVs, and in-room coffee service. Upgrades are available to suites with large sitting areas and kitchenettes. The executive suite has a full kitchen and a separate bedroom with a queen-size bed. This nonsmoking motel also has a computer room, accessible 24 hours a day, and a diner that serves breakfast and lunch. In somewhat of a rarity in downtown hotels, parking is free for guests of the Super 8. You could easily park at the motel and spend your entire vacation either walking to the nearby attractions or using the clean, convenient public transportation.
It's also possible to find cheap Victoria accommodation close to the Inner Harbour. For the cost of dinner for two, you could enjoy a night at Paul's Motor Inn (pictured) at 1900 Douglas Street. The Northwest Commercial Travelers Association recently named the inn the Best Commercial Hotel. Its history in Victoria stretches back to 1938. The Paul in the name is Paul Arsens, the same Victoria visionary who transformed the Laurel Point Inn in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, the motor inn continues to provide a comfortable place to stay, close to all the action. The 77 guestrooms have cable TV and free wireless Internet. Some of the rooms offer city views, while others overlook the garden courtyard. In-room coffee service and mini fridges are available in each room, or you could walk to the on-site diner, which serves breakfast and lunch. Like the Super 8, Paul's Motor Inn allows its guests to park onsite for free.
