The hotel is a lot bigger than expected. Parking in across the street and a nice sized lot at that. The staff at the front desk was very courteous and I managed to check in early.

The room had two double beds, very modern and comfortable. There was a desk, refrigerator, microwave and a nice sized flat screen tv. The bathroom was spacious and modern in style as well.

Overall, it was an excellent place for a nights rest after the day's drive. Make sure and turn the refrigerator on (clockwise knob rotation) so you can store water or anything else later. There is also a restaurant in the hotel, with some nice upscale fare.

Just be careful if you are 6'4 or taller, you will be grazing the bathroom ceiling or ducking.

Highly recommended be it for an overnight or longer.

Was a great place to stay for a business trip. Close to work location. Close to Main St (Baker) and a variety of restaurants nearby. Staff were great and always helpful. Good restaurant on property. Was pretty quiet when I was there even though all rooms were booked.

The Best Western is well located on the main street of the most beautiful, funky, little town of Nelson B.C. It's well kept and the staff were most friendly, the onsite restaurant can cater you most needs, breakfast/lunch/dinner. While the premises are kept very clean, the furniture is a bit dated. I would actually give this hotel a 3.5 stars on a rating of 5. The one drawback for anyone with a physical disability is that it is located on a steep hill, which one must climb if walking the short blocks to the central business section. The open parking across the street is well lit at night, however I think that it could be full on very busy days. There are numerous restaurants within blocks, as well as all sorts of small shops. The scenery around Nelson is gorgeous, there are many day and half-day trips that can be made, using Nelson as your base.

Room Tip: we were at front, facing Baker Street...there was no problem with noise...

Hi Ron. The toughest part about your review was when you stated that our furniture is dated. We just put in completely brand new furniture into the rooms two weeks ago! It is absolutely beautiful. This included new headboards, nightstands, desks, dressers, accent tables and units designed to contain the fridge and microwaves. We have also bought new Keurig coffee makers. We have received nothing but glowing reviews from all of our guests how much better the rooms look. In addition, we completely renovated the bathrooms which includes new granite vanities, framed mirrors and new tubs.

Perhaps you stayed with us a month ago? Regardless, we are sorry we did not wow you with the changes we have been making. We are also sorry that you found the hill we are on too steep.

Enjoyed a fabulous brunch at the Best Western Baker Street Grill. There was so much choice...highly recommend the omelettes that are cooked to order, the fresh fruit, the gorgeous waffles with cream and strawberry coulis, drizzled with maple syrup ,yummy. Hot porridge, spare ribs, bbq chicken, fresh vegetables...just a small selection of the food available, all served by friendly attentive staff and well worth a visit.

Please be aware I am rating the food only as we didn't stop at the hotel, as we were only passing through Nelson on our way home from a camping trip at Kootenay Creek Lake.

Thanks for writing about the food. Our on-site dining is a big part of the guest experience when people stay at our property. While Nelson is known for amazing restaurants, one does not need to go very far if you are staying upstairs. The Sunday Brunch is a must if you are staying here on a weekend. It is easily our most popular meal.

Next time you will have to try staying overnight as well.

The Baker BW is a very comfortable and relaxing hotel to compliment your visit to beautiful Nelson BC. The hotel is conveniently close to restaurants and pubs as well as shopping. The restaurant has one of the best if not best breakfast in town. You can't go wrong staying at this hotel.

A GREAT place to stay. Friendly, informative staff. A fantastic bed. Very clean. The fitness centre is well equipped and the hot tub is actually hot with jets that actually work. I would definitely stay here again. Nelson is a great town to visit. Lots of nicely maintained shops and restaurants.
