Overall it's a budget motel, with the good and bad that goes with the territory, but it does have a certain retro appeal that reminded me of a place where a '70s rock band could stay. There's nothing terribly wrong unless you consider a/c a must (Victoria nights tend to be cool). The rooms, cleanliness and service are adequate if... More

The location is very convenient, and the rooms are typical 2-star hotel rooms. There is no AC, so the rooms can get quite hot if you're traveling in the summer. Also, the Wi-fi is fast late at night and early in the morning, but otherwise it is quite slow.

Temperatures were at 30C (90F) and assumed A/C was in the room but no it wasn't and almost checked out due to extreme heat in room. Sink and bathtub both were clogged. Get what you pay for. Restaurant was very good and average priced. Walk to downtown/Chinatown and inner harbour.

Not only did the room have an overall feel of dirtiness, but we also had no hot water for showers! Dust was thick everywhere, the coffee/tea basket had not been replenished (there was used sugar packets in the basket still!), the pillows were flat and small and a large spider occupied the room with us. We did get a small... More

We needed a reasonable place to sleep close to the inner harbor - It was clean ,reasonable priced ,easy to book . Unfortually the Air Condition was out of service and we had a very hot night . The couryard outside gave the hotel a nice character .

Stayed for 1 night, hotel was in a handy location. Offered good value compared to other hotels. The room was tidy and clean although older style. If you are on a budget and want a simple place for the night it will do the job fine

We travel to Victoria periodically and want a very convenient "bed and bath" to stay. Paul's is an old, clean and reliable motel but no frills or luxury. It is extremely convenient to everything, concerts at the Safeway centre, China town, shopping and, being a motel there is easy access to your room and free parking. The area is very... More

After driving twelve hours to get here our bathroom was dirty, the tub still had water and hair all over it. We told the front desk and they weren't concerned, also we were away from the group we booked with (again nothing could be done). It took two weeks and several phone calls to get an answer which wasn't satisfactory... More

We decided to stay at Paul's Motor Inn because we were traveling with our (55 pound) dog. A surprise was that this is quite a nice place! No, nothing fancy about the rooms but they were clean, had all the standard features (in-room safe, wide screen TV, coffee maker), the beds were comfortable, and the inn us within walking distance...
