After hearing that many essential services workers were sleeping in their cars in between overtime shifts out of fear of bringing the virus home to their families, Accent Inns has stepped up. We’re supporting all Essential Services employees by offering an all-time-low rate so that they can be safe and rested during this chaotic time.
Our Essential Services staff are, well, essential to our community and we know that we have to keep our hotels open so that they have a clean, comfortable and safe night’s sleep. It’s the absolute least we can do.
But what happened next is pretty amazing. After announcing this offer, our phone lines flooded with concerned community members offering to cover the cost of accommodation for Essential Services employees who needed to stay with us.
The generosity and kindness our community has showed in this time is inspiring to all of us. In fact, you’ve inspired us to launch the new Hotels for Frontline Workers program in partnership with the United Way of Greater Victoria. If you want to show your love for Essential Services workers, you can donate here to cover the cost of their accommodation.

Our President & CEO Mandy Farmer has a message for our community in response to the outpouring of support!
