Paul's is not flash but it is value for money and we chose Paul's because of price and location. It is well situated on Douglas Street, a couple of kms from the harbour and downtown. The first night we walked with our luggage from where the bus dropped us downtown and it seemed a long way (next time we will... More

Upon our entry to the room, the smell was not pleasant. The shower curtain was filthy and the single knob for the water at the sink came off because it was just sitting on it and not attached. They did change the curtain quickly and sent a repairman to fix the tap knob, but it came off again. We also... More

This Inn was not in a very good part of town. We didnt know the area when we booked. The room was very musty smelling, the airconditioning or fan was very noisy. Won't go there again or recommend it to others. Shower was either very cold or freezing hot.

Very nice place. They've made some recent updates. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Very good location! We walked down to the harbour. There are any many places to eat within walking distance if you choose not to eat in the motel restaurant. We had breakfast in the restaurant-it was great. The service was friendly and fast throughout. They have... More

We were able to stay just one night in Victoria, and Paul's was a fairly affordable choice, within not quite a mile of the city center. The staff was very friendly; the room was small and a bit dated. No breakfast is offered for the price, making its overall value just so-so, but the attached diner was *great*, with very... More

This place was ok and in walking distance from the city center. We had picnick at night in their back terrace. Actually the rooms in the back look nicer from the outside. I liked it. The staff was nice, too. A lovely lady from the staff warmed up my food in their microwave.

Parked at motel and walked around town. Parking is a real problem in Victoria so this is a good solution. Rooms are ok but staff is friendly and accommodating. Overall a good experience. Rented a courtyard room, I'm not sure I needed to but it was dead quiet for those looking for that.

We stayed in room 272, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was just what we were looking for while we stayed in Victoria for the Canada Day long weekend.

For 30 years I've known Paul's as a good place to stay for a music festival or a hockey tournament, or anything else where patrons are in the mood to revel. Last weekend was no exception for both the Jazz Fest and the Ska Fest in Victoria. Paul's was certainly lively. It's been a few years (maybe 5 or 6)... More
