Parking

Not having to worry about parking in the city is a major bonus. And when you’re staying with us, you can chill out knowing that your ride is safe from the city’s parking enforcement officers, in our parking lot!

The cost for a spot in our parking lot is $10 per day, and it’s only available to Ocean Island guests. Ask the front desk staff about a parking spot when you arrive. There is no way to reserve a parking spot in advance. If we don’t have any space for you, we can recommend other spots to park around the city, to save you from getting ticketed. Please read below for more options:

Johnson St Parkade

The nearest parkade to Ocean Island Inn is the Johnson St. Parkade. Located a block away, at 750 Johnson St, this is a four story parkade, security patrolled parking lot. We don’t recommend leaving any valuables in your car, but if you do have to leave something in your car we recommend parking here. First hour is free, or $2/every additional hour. $12/day (24hrs). Free overnight parking (6pm – 8am), Sundays and holidays.

Street Parking and Free Parking

Parking is free at all metered parking spaces on the streets from 6pm-9am, Monday-Saturday, and allday Sundays and Stat. Holidays. Otherwise you will need to feed the meter 25 cents fo every 10minutes. Be vigilant though; Victoria’s parking attendants are as stealthy and lethal as ninjas!

There are some 1-2 hour free parking zones on the outskirts of the downtown core. Check out the area near Chinatown (north of Fisgard St. and west of Government St.) or east of Quadra St. and south of Fort St. There are also some 3 hour free parking zones in Beacon Hill Park. There are a few places near town you can park free all-day although these are usually a bit of a walk away.

Check out Tyee Rd.–across the Johnson St. bridge and turn right at the fi rst major intersection; or in the area east of Cook St.

Auto Theft

Actual vehicles don’t get stolen much in Victoria, but more and more people are having stuff stolen out of their cars. We recommend that you don’t leave anything valuable or important in your vehicle! Store it in our secure storage facility (for free) instead. If you have to leave something in your car, put it in the trunk before you get in your car in the first place, and park the car in a well-lit spot on a busy street.
