Excellent Value For The Money And Great Location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, good value
Cons: Noisy, no breakfast, small cheap towels, no ac
We stayed 2 nights in this motel and were very pleased with everything. The staff were friendly, the room was clean but very basic with no air conditioning. They did provide fans to circulate the air though which helped keep it comfortable however I can see it getting quite warm in the rooms during the summer. They were more than happy to accept our two small doggies for a small fee. The coffee they provided was very good quality as were the toiletries. I found the beds to be very average. They were not uncomfortable by any means but not luxury either. The one thing I noticed is that the towels they provide you with are more like over sized dish towels rather than a bath towel. They are VERY thin and barely good for drying yourself with. Perhaps you should pack your own towel. Overall, I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. It is in a good location that's walking distance to everything downtown. There are plenty of restaurants nearby.

Nice, friendly staff. 2 miles or so to the restaurants and bars by the water,and less to Chinatown and shops there.I paid slightly extra to be in enclosed courtyard away from street and it was very quiet and nice there. Diner building just adjacent to inn, so good place for breakfast.

very nice for the price

Location: Didn't know until our last day that Chinatown was within walking distance.
Staff was helpful and pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable . Location was good. Felt safe while staying there. A lot better than the room we had in San Francisco or Seattle and they cost more!!!

Don't Waste Your Money

Very poor service at check in. The room smelled foul and was very stale. We were greeted upon arrival at our room by two seedy looking fellows drinking beer, smoking, and eyeing our possessions as we entered the room. The shower drained very slowly...may as well have taken a bath. No Air Conditioning in the rooms.

Older but well maintained

Older design with very little in the way of dresser space or closet space. One wall of room has full length bench; not sure what its original purpose was, but it works to set bags, etc. on. That being said, was clean, well maintained and quiet. Good location for accessing downtown Victoria and the waterfront. Front desk staff didn't seem to be as knowledgeable of the local area as I would have expected, though. I would steer clear of the attached restaurant, however. We went for dinner on a weeknight. There were only four other customers in the restaurant, yet it took nearly a half-hour for our order to be delivered. Our waitress disappeared for about twenty minutes midway during our meal. Also, the food wasn't that great. We did not eat another meal there, based on this poor experience.

Fall visit

Reasonable price. One block walk to Chinatown, 4 blocks to main tourist area. Within 1 block are routes 1 and 17, the main routes north and west. Restaurant open 24 hours. Meals are coffee shop type but one third the price of downtown. Recommend courtyard rooms.

great value

Our family of 4 had a great stay at Paul's. Although not elegant,the room was clean, staff friendly, easy walk to chinatown, downtown, harbor area. Very good price even in high season. Shower temp was a little hard to adjust but not too bad. Wish we had booked one more night. Would definitely go back. Highly recommend this hotel to other travelers.
