"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
"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
"Budget hotel with character."
This hotel has a pleasantly retro feel to its decor, which for us went a long way to compensating for more contemporary faults: the service at the front desk was not great. If, like us, you can overlook some service-related issues (or happen to get someone at the front desk who's better) then this is a great middle-of-the-road option.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed our stay, our stay in a courtyard room was quiet, clean and comfortable and central to Downtown Victoria, everything was a easy walk. Down the street 2 blocks and we were at Capital Iron. The staff are great from the check in on, the restaurant has yummy food at reasonable prices, nothing fancy. It has a vintage feeling and we will […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A bit disappointed"
All staff were very kind. However the facilites were not good. Especially we couldnt dry our hair because of a lot of dust on the drier. In addition, even though we mentioned we are 3people and we paid money for extra 1 person, only 2 towels were prepared. Regarding to towel, a cleaner did not change used towels to new one. So we had to use towel again! […] I have never experienced that. Also many dead flies inside the light was not good experience... Lastly hairs were found on the bed even after a cleaner cleaned our room. In conclusion, I dont recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and price. Clean."
Great Location. Polite. Clean. Great price. Only downside was the bed was far too firm!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good price, good service."
Place seemed a little ghetto upon arrival. We were there last minute as a night away from kids. They upgraded us to a private courtyard "suite" for no extra charge to give us a quiet place away from the party goers which was very much appreciated. Basic room, very dated with wood paneled walls etc. Small ancient tv. Comfy bed. we got our $70 worth.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and service"
When we first checked in we noticed we only had a double bed in our room. ( we had requested a king, or at least a queen size bed.) As my husband is quite a large man. When we returned to the desk,..it didn't take the receptionist very long to exchange our room with a queen sized bed. Also we had requested a microwave,..and got one very quickly. Thank […] you so much. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel had everything we needed. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, cheap, clean."
It was nice hotel, from outside does not look good but the rooms are cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
"Interesting retro hotel..close to downtown"
Staff was friendly..rooms are clean but dated..beds are soft and def need replacing ...Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was perfect, very helpful staff. I just wanted a place to keep my things and get some sleep without worrying about break-ins or bugs. This place gave me that. It then exceeded my modest expectations, and that's great because my expectations weren't really that highGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and value for a good price"
We spent last weekend in Victoria and needed a room for three persons. Paul's was beyond our expectations, as the room was large anough, comfortable and clean, and kept that sixties feel that we were hoping for, with a wooden wall, and plenty of room to put our stuff. The lady at the front desk was welcoming and friendly, and let us leave our car for […] the rest of the day after we checked out, wich was great as it is so close to everything. I would definitely go back to Paul's next time I'll be in Victoria. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
good,it's located in downtown Victoria...nice place near many tourist attractionsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to downtown shopping and dining."
In general I really enjoy staying at Pauls. This trip the room was not really clean. I would suggest that a covered smoking area be provided for guests. It is off-putting to be told to go out on the street, in the rain and wind.Genuine Expedia guest review
"reasonably close to hospital"
We were satisfied and would use their services againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location and quiet"
the room was not clean. We registered 3 people and there were only 2 coffee cups, 2 towells and face clothes. We requested extra pillows because the person we were transporting had a back problem and was on a medical trip. There were no extra pillows.Genuine Expedia guest review
"enchanted of the place so accessible"
pleasant atmosphere, feeling quite secure having a room in the courtyard, quiet. welcome as much at the reception than at the restaurant. less friendly staff however at the check out desk maybe due to busy week end of Thanksgiving.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent spot, close to downtown for walking."
Room was fine and what I expected for the price. Beds were clean, which is very important with bedbug issues going around; bathroom floor had some hairs. We'd stay here again, simply because the price was unbeatable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lousy bed Lousy sleep"
I didn't expect a 5 star room but I did expect a decent night's sleep. The bedsprings were almost coming through the mattress cover.Genuine Expedia guest review
