The hotel stay was as described on the website. Fun lobby area and great food. The bathroom and laundry room could use a little face lift, but was a welcome sight after a week of camping. There were a lot of fees attached to our bill, which I'm told is standard, I just wish this was included in the advertised...

Hey Chelsea B, Thank you so much for the great review!! Our lobby is a really fun place to hang out and I hope you also checked out our ping pong lounge downstairs too.

On our recent 'girls weekend' my best friend and I had the pleasure of staying in Hotel Zed. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed. The staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgable and entertaining. They listened to our questions, offered great advice and sightseeing options and some top notch restaurant recommendations. The hotel is obviously not new but the...

Great retro vibe, fun and funky. Super comfy rooms that are refitted, so don't expect modern, just comfortable. Has super fun time in the ping pong rec room! Restaurant is awesome and busy. Not totally happy with the service. We emailed ahead with request and got no response and no knowledge when we check in. Transfer service was kind of...

From my first contact with the hotel staff I was getting a great upbeat vibe. We were travelling to Victoria for our sons graduation ceremony and had left the booking a little late and were running out of our usual options. The Zed was suggested by the Accent Inn and and so gave them a call. We booked a bedroom...

Reviewed 17 June 2016

We found a very favourable deal on Hotel Zed and were impressed by the retro stylings of the hotel/rooms. It is a new hotel in a old hotel frame, so industry standards now don't quiet fit - no A/C in rooms, rooms do pick up street noise, etc. Staff were amazingly friendly, courteous and responsive. During a 4 night stay,...

My husband and two daughters loved this place! The front desk clerk was extremely friendly and helpful with tips of where to visit and attractions to see. The free shuttle in the VW van was a lot of fun and saved us a fifteen dollar cab fare. The waterslide and hot tub and pool were wonderful as well. The rooms...

Pros - neat decorating, beds are great, rooms are clean, great location across from the mall for teenagers Cons - Although there are fans in the room the room gets stuffy. Opening windows wasn't an option due to exterior noise of traffic and party people. Walls and doors are paper thin, no option to have coffee in your room which...
