          The Surf Motel is a gem. On Dallas Road in Victoria, this small motel faces the sea and Ogden Harbor. The Inner Harbor is a short walk away. Clean and comfortable. This is where we will stay when we once again visit beautiful Victoria.

          My husband Doug will be working in Victoria from May 1 to September 15 and needs accommodation . He would like a small kitchenette if possible, what kind of prices are we looking at for this long term accommodation. He works down at the docks for Seaspan so this would be very convenient for him.
