We're a ridiculously fun & eclectic hip hotel in Victoria BC that is so completely awesome your mind will be blown! Ok, slight exaggeration, but we swear it's like nothing you've ever seen before: '67 VW shuttle, typewriter station, vinyl listening station, pool & waterslide, ping pong lounge and comic books in the bathroom ...

After staying in Vancouver in a fancy hotel, we were not sure what to expect. We spent two weeks travlling around on Vancouver island and in comfortable hotels, but Zed had it all: not far from downtown, free rides with the Zed van, and the pool ( I know that people complain

Hotel Zed is great for the family. The decor, amenities, restaurant and location are top notch. There is enough to keep both adults and children busy and happy. Beautiful downtown Victoria is just minutes away. There is a lot of construction in the area which can be noisy but it

They have converted this old style motel into a funky 1970s vibe hotel, complete with 1970s furnishings. While the idea is great, it falls short on some keys areas. The rooms are small and dingy, and very run down. There is NO air conditioning, and very little airflow in the

Hi Katnelson, Thanks for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We are so sorry to hear you did not love your Hotel Zed experience. We are the best motel chain in BC, but we understand that isn’t for everybody. While we certainly don’t advertise that we have air conditioning, interior hallways, etc, we understand that if you were hoping for a different hotel experience, it would be a disappointment. As for the vending machines and the plumbing concerns, I’m really glad you flagged that for us. That’s unacceptable and we will look into fixing these issues ASAP. We’re sorry. Hotel Zed is a fun motel with TONS of extras (free bikes and longboards, vintage shuttle, waterslide, lawn games, etc) that make us the perfect spot for family getaways and for rebels of all ages who want to try something different. Our pool area does get popular during Victoria’s hot summer days, but we have plenty of room for everyone to enjoy! We understand that you chose to check out a little bit early and find somewhere else to stay. We were sad to see you go, but we want you to enjoy your vacation time to the fullest! I personally reversed any charges made to your credit card as I know you were not satisfied with your Hotel Zed experience. If you do see charges made, please contact me right away as I do not think you should be charged for your stay with us. Thanks, Rebecca Hotel Manager

The climate in Victoria is very mild. We were there on some of the hottest days of the year at the end of June, but the room stayed cool thanks to two cooling fans and a small meshed window in the bathroom.
