this was my second time at paul's, the first was four years ago. my boyfriend and i love paul's! it's affordable, retro (literally), and close to downtown (10-15 minute walk to centre) without being amidst all the tourist trash. we like it as it has some character without being pretentious and snooty like so many hotels in vic. we also...

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...

I travel to Victoria often and this is the first time that all the places I like were sold out. Trip was last minute so I just decided to stay at this motel. It was okay? Bed was not comfortable, AC didn't work well and the curtains didn't block the light out from outside entry lights. This is a very... More

I booked here based on the TripAdvisor ratings. I wanted a place that was inexpensive, but decent, for a two-night break in a long road trip. I was not disappointed. My room was large, quiet, clean, and comfortable, with easy parking next to my door--motel style. It was convenient to downtown, but just outside the traffic congestion of downtown.

Great motel style hotel with plenty of carparking. Good sized clean room. Restaurant is apparently open only at the weekends and they do not serve breakfast. There are a couple of reasonably priced restaurants just across the street. Located an easy 10 - 15 minute walk from the tourist area of the waterfront.

nothing fancy, a quirky/cute 70s vibe going on here. clean & comfortable and near to town. feels safe. tall people prepare for the crouch shower. just to warn everybody the whole place is a SMOKE FREE ZONE except for one tiny picnic table, though it was surrounded by trees and pretty private, i was a little bummed out i couldnt...

If you want a place that feels clean, great location for touristy stuff and restaurants (ask staff for suggestions), clean towels and sheets, mattresses fine, descent restaurant attached, safe feeling, free parking outside your room, friendly knowledgeable staff, great price, then here ya go. We only stayed one night but I would have stayed more.

Well, "unique" can be good new OR bad, especially in the case of hotels. Paul's is, mostly, "good" unique. We had two, different, rooms (more later) and they were somewhat different. Both on the second floor (desirable) and on the "away from the street" end (VERY desirable). Our first room, and, apparently, most of the others, had a long, wooden,... More

I booked Paul's through one of Expedia's top secret deals (you don't know which hotel you've booked until after it's been prepaid - usually excellent deals). At first I thought "Oh darn!" - we'd stayed there a couple of years ago and all I could remember was that it was a dive. Well, it's still somewhat dive-like, but the positives... More
