We had booked our vacation through the Kootenay's the August long weekend at the spur of the moment. Needless to say, there was not much available. When we arrived at the Villa we were a little hesitant as to what to expect. The room was very pleasant, much better than expected. The room was large - one queen and two...

This was our second stay at this facility. Once again, we were very pleased. One of their rooms includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a queen bed, one has two double beds. This is an excellent option for our family when we are visiting Nelson. The rooms are modest, clean, conveniently located and well priced....

Thank you for your review Francie! Yes, the standard room with three beds is a perfect fit for families that don't need a living room or kitchenette. We are very happy to hear that the price and value as well as our staff friendliness has been suitable and consistent between your stays with us. We wish you well on your...

The motel came recommended by a local and was great! The price was right and it was located right on the highway quite close to city centre. Quiet and clean. Would definitely recommend if travelling through Nelson or if you are staying for awhile.

What a little surprise. First motel weve stayed in that has a kitchenette with all cooking facilities plus full size fridge. Beds were clean and comfortable. Frank at reception was so helpful and informative. Across the bridge from town and a bit of a hike but soo pretty to walk.

Thank you Karen S for sharing your experience at the Villa Motel. I do enjoy that walk over the bridge, through the beach/park, water front walkway all the way to downtown. You get some pretty cool views along the way and actually get to see Nelson as a whole, not just the downtown core.

Had a larger group for 2 nights so we needed lots of rooms and wanted an area where we could sit outside and talk/drink. None of the hotels in town had this so we picked the Villa. Was an easy check-in and had great dining recommendations form the desk. The pool was definitely used by kids, and the murky water...

I was travelling with my daughter and two grandchildren and there were limited hotels due to a motorcycle convention taking place that weekend. We booked this hotel on line which looked to be half decent. I was very disappointed the moment I arrived and saw that it was more run down than the pics on their web site portrayed. The...

The Villa is a great little motel just across the bridge from downtown Nelson. The rooms are good sized, beds are comfortable, and the staff were super helpful. They have a no-frills continental breakfast and a nice salt-water pool. They are within walking distance of good Indian food and a grocery store, a short ride to the hotspots in Nelson....

Thank you Khalil_I-Z for your review. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us as well as our facilities. The walking distance Indian Food is at Bogus Town.

Thank you Nautrallyhere for your review. Looks like you enjoyed your stay here with your dog. I do have bad news as we are looking to end our two pet friendly rooms after this summer.

I was checked in by a friendly girl named Tenessee who informed me that breakfast was from 8-10, and checkout was at "noon O'clock" which amused me. The continental breakfast is good, it includes coffee, juice, milk, cereal, a waffle maker, and more. For three weeks I stayed in a kitchenette suite with two queen beds, a stove (with pots...

Great motel with very helpful staff. Breakfast in the lobby was available and also the restaurant just below the motel had wonderful breakfast as well as lunch/dinner. Can walk from motel and across the bridge to the city beach in about 20 minutes. Quiet motel even though it is close to the highway. Would stay again.
