"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
Paul's is old and shows it , it needs a whole new facelift . First thing you notice when you walk in the room is the musty smell , then the mismatched furniture then the ugly prints on the walls , blankets with holes and sheets that were too small for the mattress etc. , etc.. And to top it off we had an overnight guest in the form of a mouse !! Not […] impressed !!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was wonderful, fair rates, close to everything and the 50's style café was a delight. Would highly recommend to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location for doing the tourist sights. Can walk to downtown. Room was not cleaned properly. Toilet hadn't been cleaned in a least a month and she never did it the 3 days that we were there. Price was good but don't expect the Fairmont.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Satisfied our needs"
Appreciated that it was not as noisy as we expected, being on Douglas Street. No noise from adjoining rooms. The restaurant served a very good breakfast and was very reasonable. No coffee cups or glasses were in room due to oversight but overall satisfactory.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"overall an acceptable experience"
The place was pretty run down, but the staff was amicable. The hot water in the shower never lasted more than a minute or two, and that was my only real complaint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was close to where we needed to be and it was very cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very cool retro hotel! No air conditioning but the hotel did provide fans. The staff was very friendly. Great history with this place. Loved it! And the diner next door was excellent!! Great food!! Great service!! The best breakfast the whole trip. If you love eggs benny please try the west coast benny, so delish!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok for short stay. No air conditioning and it was 32 degrees. Old building but clean. Easy trip to royal jubilee hospital.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to CHINA TOWN"
very reasonable price please clean and friendly staff = great stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
check in staff were friendly and room was clean. Although it is an old building the rooms are comfortable, there is plenty of parking and was a good choice for it's central location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Paul's Diner was everything it was 30 years ago when i first went there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convienient to Royal Jubilee Hospital"
Excellent. My wife was in the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Being able to get there & back the quickest way BONUS .We have also stayed there for vacation times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location"
This motel is situated near the best part of the city, being withing walking distance of many attractions. There are also several good/great restaurant options and the water is super-close. Downside is that the rooms are outdated and quite stuffy (couldn't find the AC switch), with our room seeming to only having two fans: One ceiling and one small […] oscillating. Overall, if location is most important, it's a good choice, but if comfort is desired, you may consider elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed at Paul's before. The location is very close to downtown. Everything is very close and many great eateries. I always get the courtyard room and prefer the lower rooms. Parking can get scarce if there are events downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"motorcycle trip stop"
Great location to walk the downtown core of Victoria and the reatuarant was very good for breakfast. The rooms are quite old but were clean. Not a bad place to stay for an overnight stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I always stay at Paul's because I can walk downtown, and the parking is included. While they don't include breakfast, I always get a hot breakfast at their diner, which is reasonable - and the servers are always friendly. This retro hotel could use some updating, it looks like they are doing it slowly. The rooms always smell a bit stale, but you get […] used to it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the location,..within walking distance to restaurants,and downtown.....and very close to the hospital and clinics to which I had to attend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The room appeared clean, but found ashes in room."
I had been under the impression that breakfast was included. Not so. I think this place was over priced for the condition.Genuine Expedia guest review
