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. It is affordable and the staff were super friendly. I couldn't hear the roads at all which was another plus; I was worried being on the... More

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

Stayed on Wednesday night. Was impressed! Clean and comfortable but the shower was made for short people which luckily I am but the problem was the water went cold and then extremely hot.

PUl's Motor Inn was better than advertised. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room clean and spacious,, and the location wonderful (and free parking to boot!).

Best value in Victoria for a basic room close to the Downtown core. An old fashioned motel. but very well maintained and spotlessly clean. Free parking and only 2 blocks from Chinatown and 6 more to the Downtown. Can't beat this for the price!

We stayed there overnight on May 16 2016 and were pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort for such a reasonable price. Nice to be within easy walking distance of downtown and have an on-site restaurant for breakfast. Nice quiet night of sleep.

We happened to get one of the last remaining rooms on the 3rd floor. Room is basic but very clean, which is the most important thing. Bed looked brand new (I did my customary bug check).

It was a bit of a blast from the past, or at least maybe the '70's. Pauls is in a fabulous location. Fabulous. It is walking distance to many parts of downtown Victoria, and just out of Chinatown, which is well worth a visit. The carpet, wood panelled walls, and weird built-in table/counter and the decor was clean but needs... More
