Hotel is located perfectly within walking distance of all downtown entertainment, restaurant, bars, breweries. Great service and restaurant downstairs. The room was perfect for a weekend stay. Staff was helpful and gave great recommendations.

I had never seen a hotel with this type of decor before. Not sure what to call it. Vintage 70's is close. Orange and Avocado walls and carpeting. This location does not have an elevator. Parking was a little tricky and sparse. No breakfast. No fridge or microwave. Very basic room. Loved the mountains on all sides.

The room was very clean and it was a pretty neat room overall. It was an old building but seemed in good condition. The bathroom had been remodeled recently, which was nice. The bed, however, was lumpy and hard and overall uncomfortable. That's what really drags down this hotel.

We originally booked for 1 night but extended our stay as we liked the hotel and town so much. Good value for money, bedrooms were in excellent condition and clean, good range of facilities, food and drink was great. But the highlight for us was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff with no exception- we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome, and the service at reception and bar/restaurant was superb, including giving us some excellent tips on places and things to do in the area. Particular thanks to Kirsty in the bar for being so friendly and helpful. You should be aware that there is limited off road parking, and if you are a light sleeper/have young children that the some of the rooms at the front of the hotel can be a little noisy as they're on the main drag. But these are minor points- we had a fabulous stay and couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough.

Agree that this property is unremarkable. The bathroom is weird with a glass door that offers no privacy and there was no heat in our bathroom. The “fireplace room” had an inexpensive electric fireplace in it. The rooms are noisy over the pub and the hall noise is loud too. I think this is trying to be a boutique hotel but just misses the mark. The coffee in the AM was just ok. However, the glimmer of light is the excellent coffee shop next door.

Second time staying here and just love it. The rooms are a bit small but clean and comfortable. No carpet, soft sheets, really good coffee in the kitchen and a great outdoor space. Had drinks and dinner in the pub one night, shout out to our server, she was great ( I’m pretty sure her name was Racheal, but I’d had a few). Would stay again.

Booked thru Expedia for 2 beds, ended up with bunk beds. Lukewarm ‘help’ from manager. Seemed unfriendly and standoffish from the word ‘go’. Refused to offer solution, change room or work towards some sort of solution despite lots of Hotel room vacancy Pros: Cheerful staff. Vibrant colours! Central location. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Cons: Small rooms. No elevator but that’s no biggie. However rooms are ‘perishable’ like bananas. Not sure what the point of leaving empty rooms is, especially when a mutually beneficial solution could probably be worked out. Didn’t feel listened to, so here I am. Most people just want to feel heard, and I definitely didn’t feel heard by management.

Stayed in Adventure Hotel for three nights early August. The room was clean with comfortable bed and super quiet ac. Love the overhead shower head. The luggage rack is a useful plus. View from window is the adjacent liquor store and Vernon St. Location is central, walking distance from one end of Baker Street to another where most of the restaurants, cafes and stores are. The hotel is also a 5-min walk to the viewpoint of Gyro Park and Prestige terminal of the Streetcar. I didn't go to the hotel pub and restaurant but the Empire Cafe has superb coffee and opens at 6am. Although the hotel has a communal pantry, it would be nice to have a mini fridge, kettle and coffee maker in the room. Complimentary guest parking has 10 spots only, first come first basis. Ample street meter parkings, free from 5pm till 9am. I found it beyond my ability to operate the TV ( see photos attached). I used the radio for some background music to mellow in the evening.

Our 3 nite stay in Nelson at the Adventure Hotel was perfect . Rob Little and the staff made our stay stress free. From the Pub to the coffee shop ( great cappuccino and croissant) and the Grand Liquor Store with a nice selection of hard to find wines. All the staff made sure we were taken care of . Late June was setting record temps but the air conditioning was awesome. We will be back for sure . Nelson is a great town to explore ...lots of boutique shops and restaurants. Great coffee shops and the village has retained lots of its original character.
