We stayed at Paul's Motor in for 2 nights in August at the end of a camping and hiking trip through British Columbia. We splurged a little and got one of the courtyard rooms--highly recommended. It's a quiet, secluded outdoor courtyard with tables and comfortable seating. Great for sitting with a cold drink and a newspaper or guidebook while your roomie showers. Staff was very helpful, especially Ryan (I think?), who seemed to always be there and was unfailingly quick, efficient and friendy. He revised the date of our booking (we decided to arrive a day early) quickly over the phone, gave us great whale-watching tour advice and quickly booked us a seat (the zodiac is a great way to go). The next morning, he quickly and politely handled a line-up of people checking out (which is more than I can say for some of the guests). The rooms have some funky 1950's charm which we were happy to see has not been ripped out in favor of the generic hotel room you see today. Comfy beds, coffee maker in room, clean, wifi, plenty of space. A peek into the non-courtyard rooms (fronting onto a large, free parking lot) showed rooms that seemed to be more generic and with no courtyard retreat--so not as nice, but still looked fine for a night or two. Great location, easy walking distance to chinatown, downtown restaurants and the waterfront--and Victoria is wonderful for walking. Breakfast not included, but that's okay, there are some fun breakfast places in Victoria that I am glad we visited (such as John's Place). Did not try the onsite restaurant --the waterfront beckoned. Overall, not a fancy place to stay so don't expect multi-star, but a signficint step up from the typical motel experience, and even more so if you pay a little extra for a courtyard room.
