Highway to North Island closed due to an accident. I turned around and came to Paul's as my first choice as I knew exactly what as getting at an economic price with a good sleep before heading out in the morning. This s a motel, not a luxury hotel. It is older but very clean and functional with everything you...

If you want a good night sleep, this is not the place to stay. There were people partying very loudly until at least 4am. We Did not sleep well at all. The walls are so thin that we could hear everything happening outside even when folks were being somewhat quiet. It felt like the neighbours were trying to come in...

We are so sorry to hear about your last stay with us micheepoo78. As you know from your other visits to the motor inn, it is typically quiet around the inn. We must apologize for the other guests and the noise they made. Although our team did try to quiet them, it seems our efforts didn't get the results that...

Good location, walkable to the inner harbor but perhaps surprisingly quiet. We were given a room with two double beds - it could have been my fault at booking or their fault in giving us the room, or it could have just been something that you don't always get to select. When I requested a room with one king bed...

Paul's is not flash but it is value for money and we chose Paul's because of price and location. It is well situated on Douglas Street, a couple of kms from the harbour and downtown. The first night we walked with our luggage from where the bus dropped us downtown and it seemed a long way (next time we will...

Upon our entry to the room, the smell was not pleasant. The shower curtain was filthy and the single knob for the water at the sink came off because it was just sitting on it and not attached. They did change the curtain quickly and sent a repairman to fix the tap knob, but it came off again. We also...

This Inn was not in a very good part of town. We didnt know the area when we booked. The room was very musty smelling, the airconditioning or fan was very noisy. Won't go there again or recommend it to others. Shower was either very cold or freezing hot.

Very nice place. They've made some recent updates. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Very good location! We walked down to the harbour. There are any many places to eat within walking distance if you choose not to eat in the motel restaurant. We had breakfast in the restaurant-it was great. The service was friendly and fast throughout. They have...

Reviewed 9 August 2016

We were able to stay just one night in Victoria, and Paul's was a fairly affordable choice, within not quite a mile of the city center. The staff was very friendly; the room was small and a bit dated. No breakfast is offered for the price, making its overall value just so-so, but the attached diner was *great*, with very...

This place was ok and in walking distance from the city center. We had picnick at night in their back terrace. Actually the rooms in the back look nicer from the outside. I liked it. The staff was nice, too. A lovely lady from the staff warmed up my food in their microwave.
