Paul's Motor Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For the price, the service, cleanliness and location of hotel is worth it. It is a good 10-15 minutes walk to the harbour side and downtown area.

I had a great time in Victoria, except it was warmer then normal and the hotel did not have air conditioning. They did have a ceiling fan and a small fan.

Well taken care of. However, no air conditioning and no check valve in the shower. The person in the next room washes their hands while you are showering. Surprise!!

The room was hot, no air conditioning at all. The room also had an exposed electrical outlet with wires showing, a violation of fire and electrical code. I brought that to the attention of the front desk, they seem not to care. They are in an area where they can afford to put in a mini-heat pump in each room. Not a good review.

Paul's Motor Inn was OK. It was clean. The people at the desk were pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately, it has no air conditioning and that was difficult as the days were very hot. One night of our 3 night stay, when we arrived back at the motel the beds were not made and towels which I put in the tub were not taken. But when I called the desk they brought the towels right up. We all make mistakes. All in all, it is a decent value.

Stayed over for one night. Location is perfect everything its very close. Room was clean but old. Perfect for one night.

Get a good, clean room in a very good location at a very good price. Lots of parking, a good WiFi system and very nice helpful staff makes this a best buy.

Not a lot of extras here, it's an older motel that they have worked nicely to update. We had 2 rooms and they were both clean and comfortable. The motel is right on the main highway going from downtown out to the Butchart gardens; they have free parking and are close to downtown.

Location and staff are good enough! Room was also ok but I found the coffee machine was not cleaned when I stayed. Except it, again it's good enough though!

Needed dusting especially the fan. (No A/C) Convenent location - close to bus stop, China Town.

very good for the money you paid. in fact, we spend most time outside instead of in the room. So this place is very good to match what we need: clean and confortable! Stuffs were also very nice.

Returning to our hotel room after 7 in the evening we found that the room wasn't cleaned. At the front desk we learned that the entire 3rd floor didn't get cleaned that day as the crew didn't have time to do it. This was told to us in a matter of fact tone with not apology or even the offer of clean towels.

A typical motel, no A/C, walls are thin, lady at the front desk needs more training. I would not recommend this to a friend. I'd say pay a little more for a better hotel.

On our 14 day trip from Denver to Torino, BC and back, this was one of the better Places we stayed. The room was very clean and in good order. The beds were comfortable, much better then other places in the same price range. The Hotel staff was very friendly. Good food at the restaurant, but our waitress was terrible. Can't beat it for the price

[...]. They gave us a courtyard room that was very nice. It was quite, clean, and perfect. The hotel was close to downtown. We would use this hotel again.

good clean room. small bed double only

Having the restuarant so close made it easy. The rooms were nice and the staff very pleasant. Internet is lacking but can be overlooked.
