From the moment we walked into the hotel we were greeted immediately in a professional manner with a dash of humour. I have to say I have not been taken care of like my girlfriend and I were in a hotel ever. The gentleman named Jon at the front desk pointed us in the right direction for everything we needed....

We were staying in Nelson for a night and wanted a reasonably priced room in a good location. The Adventure Hotel is exactly that. My wife and I went with an economy room. The room has a bed, TV, and a shower. They've also got a common area with a fridge, microwave, toaster, hot water and coffee. Every thing we...

We stayed here for 3 nights of our BC road trip, the location is great as you can walk almost anywhere downtown from here. This is a very old building which has recently been renovated to a European modern look (bright colors and sleek lines). The floors squeak when you walk on them but it seems to add to the...

We needed a one-night stay in Nelson and had already over-spent on hotels for the year; the price of the budget room is what first attracted us to The Adventure Hotel. What a great facility. Check-in was pleasant and quick. We liked the "Pick Your Price" option, and had opted for the budget room with the bunk bed and the...

I chose The Adventure Hotel because of the location and it was perfect. We had one of the budget rooms that had it's own bathroom. The view was not great but I did choose the budget room so I wasn't expecting it to have the spectacular view. We were checked in by Jonathan (who had mentioned he was fairly new...

From check in to check out this was a great place to stay. All the staff are really friendly. Johnathan at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with directions. The rooms were recently renovated and very clean. Our room was at the front facing the lake. It was a really pretty view. There is a restaurant/bar in the...

We will stay here every time we go to Nelson, from now on. The location is perfect, the rooms are inexpensive but very clean and comfortable, and the staff is super friendly. We all loved it - right down to our 7-year old who thought it was super cool. You can keep breakfast stuff in a common kitchen and coffee...
