Great retro motel in the heart of downtown Victoria. Location perfect for walking to good restaurants and neighbourhoods nearby. Simple rooms, perfect for a cheap stay when all you need is a place to sleep. Restaurant is ultimate 50's retro with a car hop! This will definitely become our family 'go-to' Victoria motel when what we are looking for is...

I don't want to be super negative about this motel, because my husband and I have stayed here many times over the years and have not had any real complaints. This time however, things were really less than ideal. Let me start by saying this is a great little place for an inexpensive stay, close to downtown, good restaurant, funky...

Paul's is very handy to downtown/China Town and to all the out of town places we wanted to go to (Cathederal Grove, French Beach) - right on the TransCanada Hwy. The restaurant downstairs was fantastic and opened earlier so we ate there almost every day. Not fancy but clean and comfortable and everything we needed!!

This is my second time staying at Paul's - the rooms are clean, the value is good and the location was convenient for me. It is not an up-scale Inn (the pictures on their website are accurate), but if you're looking for value, request a room in the Courtyard. It is a very nice part of the Inn that you...

For the price per night ($99) I was not at all impressed.This may be relatively inexpensive in Victoria, but I've been at comparably priced hotels that didn't seem so rough and difficult to sleep in. It is definitely on the lower end of motel's I've stayed at and had no A/C so it made our stay very uncomfortable. To open...

Just off the beaten track. A very short walk from the harbour. Great price. Clean rooms. Great service.

This place is old an everything needs a fluff up. That being said it's a decent price and the location is very close to Victoria's historic Chinatown. The beds were comfortable and there was enough room for my friend and I, who biked over, to keep our stuff, our bikes and ourselves comfortably in the room. The shower room was...

Centrally located, in walking distance to downtown. Room was smelly, even after airing it. Old interior (bedding, bathroom etc.) which requires upgrading. Free wifi and parking.

I've booked this Motel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. Pauls Motor Inn is the cheapest Motel you can find in downtown Victoria. If you use the package deal ($5 extra/night) you get a $20 voucher for Pauls Restaurant where you can have breakfast for example. Microwave is included and if you don't have one in your room, ask the...
