Our stay was very comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and the room was clean and quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a night at Pauls Motor Inn"
It took 5 minutes to get hot water in the Courtyard. $63.00 was a good value for a nice room in the courtyard with easy access to China Town and the old city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Retro Hotel near heart of Victoria"
Quiet room in seculded off-street area, firm bed (a plus), fridge, microwave, cable tv. Very niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap, but not comfortable"
This is an old motel, with flat pillows, hot rooms, chipped sink, dusty fan, gouged bathtub floor, noisy shower that either burns you or freezes you at whim, one towel per person, dated bedspreads and room decor. Tried to call the front desk two nights in a row, and it rang and rang for almost 15 rings before I finally hung up, got dressed and had to […] walk down there. The front desk is only manned by one person, so if they are helping someone else, no one answers the phone! The housekeepers were nice and the front desk staff were pleasant, but they have such a sad property to represent. The carpet had so many spots on it, we wore shoes the whole time--even in the middle of the night. We ended up having to stay the entire 4 nights we reserved because most of Victoria was already booked by the time we saw the error of our ways. Came home exhausted! The website made it look so cute, but it was a "bait and switch." I guess you get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No air con"
This hotel does not have air conditioning. I stayed in July and my room was so hot I could not sleep...all staff did was say "sorry". Would not stay again during summer months.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall great; the room was very warm/stuffy when we arrived. Would have been nice if fan or AC had been on. Otherwise, great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool vibe, bad beds."
Hard beds hurt my back. Other than that, retro vibe and service was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They were just finishing up renos, a lil dusty but overall I'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Uncomfortable Bed"
My husband and I stayed there to two days. The location is great. We were able to walk everywhere in the city and there were lots of great restaurants nearby in Chinatown. There were also many great walkable places to get coffee and drinks. We did not try the onsite restaurant. We parked our rental car in the lot and it definitely felt safe. The room […] wasn't fancy, but that wasn't a big deal for us. We stayed in a city side room, and we could hear the traffic and street noise. The main downside of our stay was the quality of our mattress. We could feel every spring, and it did not allow for quality rest. For two nights that's not too big of a deal, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay another night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It would have been a great property in it's day"
Cheap but not so cheerful. Pretty run down. Over priced for what you get. Probably would not stay here again. Staff were good at check in...a bit crusty at check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Choose the motel due to it's location a block from the Save-on-Food Arena. Several eating places within a couple of blocks, including Chinatown. Might need some renovation work in the next few years as the furnishings appear to need some renewal.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Paul's Inn in Victoria"
Room was a bit warm and stuffy but there were 2 fans provided. Price was much lower than other places and room was just fine. Location is excellent. Staff was helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs To Be Renovated"
The hotel was to expensive considering how run down it was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved biking in to the motor lodge and walking around Victoria from there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location close to city centre"
Pros: Located within easy walking distance of downtown. Room clean. Good value. Parking right outside the door. Cons: Bed a bit hard and wifi worked most of the time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"cool looking place, great cafe"
cool looking place but room in a state of disrepair, broken furniture and faulty shower faucet, though a clean room, comfortable beds. cafe food and staff are great! good location. on the bus lines and next to Chinatown(stop in at Whirled Arts in fan tan alley.)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older but nice Motel"
We enjoyed our stay, it is an older "motor Inn" style motel, but it was clean and friendly, and very close to all the downtown sights. We were able to walk to everything. We would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Paul's Dive Inn"
Bathroom so small you can barely turn around. Tub dripped all night. Room badly in need of renovation. Partying in parking lot all night long.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Inexpensive good location for my needs"
This is my second stay and I will probably return if I have a meeting in the area. It would be especially nice if you wanted to take a stroll down memory lane. The location was perfect for me as my meetings were just 3 blocks away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Only interchange with a few staff"
Eventhough this motel was down town Victoria, I was disappointed in the overall room condition. that is, it seemed clean but not good upkeep as far as finish work. Look in the corners in the bath room and other places. Next visit, I will be much more in questioning the age, the condition. Maybe, I just need to select a more expessive unit. And not […] wait until ready to make a committment before I even knew what and where I would be staying. That is the the way the selection process is set up. I should have stopped the second that I did not know what motel was being presented to me. Yes, maybe I thought it was going to be a good match in price and quality, but not so.

"fifties style rooms LOTS of mirrors"
I liked the hotel the front desk seemed a bit confusedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good affordable lodgings close to downtown"
After reading other reviews here, we booked a 'courtyard' room and were pleased with the extra privacy and quietness. The courtyard rooms are like the secret secluded motel within this motel. Found the room to be clean, simple, and just as needed. Easy walking distance to good restaurants and shopping in downtown area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay!"
I love Victoria and love to stay at places that are close to the town, but not in the town. Pau's Motor Inn was a great surprise! Clean, friendly, convenient, and great food in the restaurant. I especially liked the wonderful people that work there. They were all courteous and informative.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and Quiet"
Hotel was comfortable and courtyard room was quiet. This was important to us as we had to rise early for Victoria Marathon. A recent car accident had impacted the entry way so repair work was underway (October 2012). Not a big deal to walk around.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very old-fashioned and although the rooms were comfortable and clean the room smelled a bit like the building used to be a home for old people (I don't know if it did or not). There were also no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and breakfast was not included in the room rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"affordable, comfy and pleasant!"
loved this little place! it was perfect for what i needed. i took a west coast trip from the middle of california all the way up to Victoria by myself and this place took good care of my weary traveling bones. my room was in the back courtyard which was nice and private and quiet! my room was clean and comfy. the staff was very nice. the front desk […] lady had some issues while checking me out that were quite irritating, but nevertheless, she got me out of there and all was well. the location is great, everything is in walking distance. didn't care too much for the food in the diner, so i only ate there twice out of convenience. but all in all, i would stay here again!

"No room aircon during summer"
It was just an overnight stay and was disappointed that there were no room airconditioners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place on a budget!"
Hotel was nothing fancy, but it was clean, safe, and comfortable, with mini fridge, but no microwave. Location is about a 10 min walk to the touristy stuff instead of in the middle of it for twice the cost. Hotel also has an attached "drive in" restaurant which was great food, great price. Hostess was very friendly and helpfull with getting us a roll […] out bed for the daughter. Stayed with my wife and 2 yr old daughter for the weekend while we toured the city on foot. Very happy and will definitely choose Paul's again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK in Victoria"
Though the climate doesn't demand it, we missed the presence of air-conditioning. Also, the bathroom had a major leak from the tub while showering.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed four days and the housekeeping left much to be desired. Basically we were neglected. The cloth covered chairs were filthy and in need of new upholstery.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room is very stinky & the bathroom is dirty as well, plus it is always noisy outside by the housekeepers and her cart :( had a bad experience when we stayed hereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My courtyard room was perfectly secluded. The bed & pillows were comfortable and the street noise level minimum. The staff was more than willing to help in anyway needed. It's an older motor lodge that has been well maintained. Within walking distance to downtown Victoria and 20 min car ride to Butchart Gardens.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Paul's is the best."
Friendly staff. Great location. I will stay at Paul's again in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable, quiet and convenient. Room a bit small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was okay but not as good as it use to be!!! I had asked for a main floor room which was confirmed but available when we arrived. The room was made up really late every day and we had to ask the maid for kleenex, etc...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent hotel and a great value"
surprisingly great hotel with modern decor. i'll stay again next time i'm in victoria for sure.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Pro's and Con's"
Paul's is a really convenient location for walking as it is close to everything downtown, however, the block it's on is a bit run-down. The person at the front desk was nice and friendly, the room was comfortable. It was, however, a little dodgy looking at times (probably because of the neighborhood) and we were really disturbed when we heard someone […] negotiating for what we think was a hooker/drugs outside our room. Pro's: - Free parking and can walk almost everywhere downtown - No extra charge for 4/room - Fit 4 fairly comfortably Con's: - Although very close to many nice parts of town this neighborhood felt a bit dodgy - Water pressure in the shower was bad - If you sleep with your window open it's pretty loud, and you might hear things you don't want to Overall it was an alright place to stay if you aren't spending much time in your room and aren't looking for a 'retreat'.

"Maid services needs some attention"
We stayed over the holidays and maid service was a bit non existent. There was articles left in the drawers from previous guests. One day just the garbage was taken out, beds weren't made. One clean towel was left.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay in Victoria"
Went for a weekend getaway to this hotel we are very pleased with it although we did not spend much time in the room it was close to all the things you can do in Victoria like whale watching and other things for the price it's well worth it and check out there 50's restaurant great food it's attached to the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely staff, huge clean comfortable room, apart from the bed which was a bit uncomfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Slept like a log"
Staff was friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good for the price"
Just a n overnigher to visit family. The motel was fine,bed a little hard,but overall a good place for the moneyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First room smelled of urine. Second room NO HEAT on a cold Nov. Staff did not attempt to adjust our bill or make any offers to us. When asked what they could do they said give us 10% off, then on check out recanted because we went through expedia. We'll never stay or recommend this place. There excuse was that it was a cheap motel, very possibly so […] but they should have said CHEAP MOTEL WITH NO HEAT IN THE WINTER. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location. Good diner. Not so keen on the bed. Rooms nice and bigGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It did the job!"
It filled the bill, we needed an inexpensive room close to downtown. The location was great and the price but the room was not very clean. There was garbage in the can when we got there and when I moved a chair there was a pit and paper under it. The tub also looked dirty but luckily we only were there 12 hours and did not need to make use of it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I would stay here every time in come to Victoria"
It was clean and quiet close to all the amenities and attractions and I mean close farthest was the whale watching at fishermen's warf 2.2 km away great place for a weekend getawayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel overall"
Nice people, great location and value. Had a quiet night before the marathon. Independent feel, if a tad dumpy with some creepy paintings. But I would stay there again...(and I lived in Victoria for a decade). I consider being able to walk directly outside from the room a big plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
