    Historical Traveler Reviews Paul's Motor Inn Victoria

    Great price, free parking, great location

    from

    I stayed there over BC day weekend last summer and really enjoyed the spacious room and convenient location with such a great price. It is an easy walk to Chinatown and then onto to the shopping area and the harbor. Victoria is a wonderful vacation spot.

    I would defintely recommend it for travelers on a budget.

    Standard motel accomodations

    from

    Paul's Motor Inn provided basic motel standard facilities for an ok price if you just show up and ask for a room or for a very good price if you book ahead via Expedia or some other travel site. Had we booked online it woulda cost us 50% less! That said the room was very big, the bed comfortable and the bathroom was clean.

    The location is decent, but if you're walking back to the motel at night on Government St. make sure you don't continue too much further North past the hotel, as I'm sure those girls on the sidewalk weren't waiting for taxis ;-)

    Great place to stay

    from

    My girlfriend and I stayed here during August and found this to be the only place we could get for under $100 a night. It was our first trip to Victoria and we were very happy with the accomodations. It may not be the fanciest place but our room was clean and a good size. The inn was within walking distance of most tourist attractions and having a restaurant on location was convienient. The service was good and we definetly recommend this as a good place to stay.

    Eh....it's ok

    from

    My wife and I stayed here in early August and found the accomodations to be average. We would probably opt to stay somewhere with air conditioning and a continental breakfast in the future. However, it was pretty cheap.

    Nice Lobby

    from

    Just stayed here Sept 04. Yes it is a good price. The restaurant has good service and good food. And the Lobby has been well kept. But our room was run down and not very clean. There were big black tar like stains on the carpet, we kept our shoes on the whole time. This is a motel with outside access only and our window had no REAL lock just a piece of wood to jam it closed. The bedside lamp should have had 2 blubs but had only one. The other lights were above the TV, so it was difficult to read at the bed. The top of the chest of drawers was cracked. There was a pocket door to the bathroom you could close it but had to push it with your foot and shoulder to open it. We won't stay here again. I know there are other places as well priced.

    It's so-so

    from

    I stayed here with my parents and boyfriend for one night at the end of july. It was during a heat wave. A warning for all people...there is no air conditioning at this motel. I recently came back from hawaii and got so used to every hotel having air con that it never even entered my mind to ask. The room had a fan. Our fan broke at about 3 in the morning so we actually had no fan. It was unbearable. Probably the worst nights sleep ever. Other than the heat our stay was ok. The rooms were very clean. The bathroom was clean. They had a coffee maker in the room, which was good, and they had cable tv. The mattresses on the bed were way too soft for my liking though. Overall it was ok. If you have the money, stay somewhere with air con if it's hot out. If not, be prepared to sweat. I would personally not stay here again but others might not find it so bad.

    Would stay here again.

    from

    Great Value, I got a very low price through Expedia! Saving so much on the hotel allowed us to see all the sites, and eat in nice restaurants. It wasn't fancy but the room was very clean, comfortable, and in a convienent location. I'd stay here again.

    Good value for money

    from

    This is a reasonably priced hotel particularly if you get a good deal through Expedia or Priceline. The hotel and the restaurant are dated, but in a nice, homey way. We've been here 5 times and have no complaints. Everything is in order and in reasonably good shape.

    It's about ten short blocks (or a quick public bus ride) into the Inner Harbour area.

    Smelly "nonsmoking" room

    from

    The reception staff were grim, unfriendly and unwelcoming. It was our first visit to Victoria but we received a cold welcome. When we went to our room - which was supposed to be non-smoking - it smelled really bad - of tobacco. When we wanted to the coffee-maker, we noticed that it had not been cleaned - the used filter bag was still there. When we returned to Victoria after a few days, we made it a point not to stay at Paul's Motor Inn!

    Value for money

    from

    This is a great place within walking distance to everything downtown.

    Clean, reasonable and in a safe neighborhood.

    Slept in again this morning. Getting spoiled to these kind of days. Oh, I get to do that almost every day at home. :)

    After breakfast in the Horizon Court, we hit the 'sidewalk sale' again. They have something different every day, even two or three times a day. We walked around on deck to keep the exercise going. Nothing to see but water, water, everywhere. The weather is not as cold today. Didn't ...

I still don't think I will ever get over the self flushing toilets (they just don't work!) or the fact that these people have no such thing as spray on deoderant. We look forward to saying goodbye to tipping in a few weeks but both agree we will look forward to another visit in the near (ish) future.
