Super nice people work there but when I complained about the smelly room the first time nothing happened -tried again on the next trip and found the same smell problem in a different room. I expected some comment back from management that time but nothing other than the automated email. The shower vents into the room so no doubt it...

My friend and I chose to take our kids here for a few days and the kids loved it and the adults thought it was kitschy fun but not overwhelming. I can't really rate this compared to a high class hotel as that's not what this is so I didn't expect it. For a motel it's about the best I've...

We decided to take a over night trip to Victoria and came across this hotel. We're very happy we did. It's a great price with great amenities. A nice pool with a water slide (aka The Zedinantor) and a great "small" restaurant attached to the library. Also a great shuttle that takes you to your location with selected pick up...

This place is not even close to 5 star, but it is clean, fun, cool and the staff, including the maintenance staff, house keeping and front desk staff were all amazing. The vibe is so positive and the price so reasonable, that you feel you are getting more than you pay for. It is an old style motel fixed up...

My relaxing weekend at Hotel Zed was fantastic. I arrived on a stormy Friday in February looking for a place to relax, read, layabout, and generally hide from work. It was great. As a child of the 60's, I loved the bright colours, the decor touches like a typewriter (it worked! I typed up a postcard), rotary dial phone (my...

Reasonably priced, great location and friendly staff. The rooms are small but ok. If you're a couple it is a bit small for two people to circulate at the same time.The bathroom layout can be a little unusual. The toilet and shower are in separate ends of the room, with an open sink area in between. Not a lot of...
