“older but very clean, dog friendly.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

half the price of the other dog friendly accommodations in town. older but super clean. our room had the added bonus of a jetted tub. would stay again. great if you just need a place to stay and aren't looking for all the frills.

Older property with a fresh coat of paint, beautiful (live !) flowers in window boxes outside the units and extremely personable friendly staff ! I had a bad experience the week before at a motel in a different city, so was a little apprehensive, but was pleasantly surprised with this little gem ! My room had been updated, and the bathroom was so clean you could have eaten off the floor ! The sheets were white and crisp and the towels in the bathroom were white and fluffy and the whole unit smelled clean. It's in a great location and the staff was very helpful and friendly and would highly recommend this property ......... I only paid $6.00 more than at an awful property the week before, so I feel that it's priced right.

A friend and I booked into this hotel for one night recently based on the many positive reviews. It is an attractive, colourful hotel and the staff are definitely very friendly and helpful. As we were only staying one night and needed two beds and no kitchen, we went with Room 32 (if I remember correctly) due to the $94 price. In comparison a full room with two Queens and a kitchen was $119. In hindsight we would happily have paid an extra $25 for a proper sized room with more amenities and hopefully better quality finishing. This one looked like a basement suite with pretty low quality finishing.

This room had a small fridge sitting on the floor in a corner with a microwave on top of it and a coffee pot on top of that, with a power bar sitting on the floor out ion the open with various items plugged into it. There is no fan in the bathroom and the toilet is less than 8 feet from the person's head in the double bed, which can be a bit awkward for both the person using the bathroom and the person in the bed. Also, the manager's suite is above this room and we could hear them using their bathroom during the night.

There is a locked door to a connecting room which must have the TV located on the other side of the door because even though it was not turned up loud, we could easily hear it anywhere in the room. It was a warm night but the air conditioner is a low budget model and made far too much noise to leave on. It would have been too loud for us to sleep and would likely have disturbed people in nearby rooms.

Finally when we went to check out in the morning we discovered that the office did not open until 8:00, which we thought was a little late, so we had to leave without a proper check out.

So a nice looking little hotel with pleasant staff but a not-so-great experience due to the room. If I were coming through Nelson again I might stay here again but would definitely not stay in the same room and would ask to view the room before booking.

The people who own this Motel were so kind and helpful. I am an older woman traveling on business and they always make sure to make me feel very safe while I am there. I have gone back twice and each time it is a treat to see all the new things and upgrades each time. It looks like a little chalet tucked away in Nelson.

Room Tip: Get the room on the top floor with the fireplace it is so relaxing and homey. When I am away on busi...

The rooms were recently renovated and comfortable. We had everything we needed including air conditioning. It wasn't near anything so we had to drive everywhere was wanted to go. This made it very quiet.

Very friendly and helpful staff found us a nice room for the five of us with separate bedroom, and a nice kitchenette. Very well cared for property, and nicely cared for rooms. Desk staff directed us to a delicious breakfast restaurant in downtown Nelson. Thanks for the nice stay, and we'll be sure and visit next time in Nelson.

Super nice staff, right from the 1st phone call to checking out. Everything was super clean, up to date and well maintained. Off the main routes made for a great night sleep and it was close enough to the main part of town we could walk everywhere as we arrived on our motorbike. We will be back.
