Visited Nelson and stayed at the Villa Motel again. Great as always, gave me a king size bed, very comfortable. Clean to the corners, wonderful place to stay. Frank the owner is great guy and he had a young man working the front desk who was very personable and easy to deal with.

We booked in for 1 night but stayed for two as the room was extremely spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. A good price, and across the river from the centre of Nelson, so you need a car, but it's only a short drive. The staff are also very friendly, and a simple but adequate continental breakfast is available...

Villa Motel is a down to earth place and is located at a beautiful spot by the bridge and water, just outside downtown. The prices are affordable, rooms were clean and quiet. Villa Motel is not posh, rather it has a nostalgic vibe which I personally like. Everything worked as promised. The staff gets an extra mentioning. I arrived to...

A little way out of town on the other side of Lake Kootenay but only a 5 minute drive across the Orange Bridge. The motel is dated and does not look appealing from the outside. Our room, a suite was very unappealing outside with dirty plastic chairs and a table. The suite itself was clean apart from a few small...

Villa is just a motel, so don't go thinking it's a luxury hotel. If you keep that in mind, you'll really like it. It's not in the centre of Nelson (the only drawback) but it's super clean and the staff is really friendly. Villa happened to be close to some of the hiking trails we wanted to check out, so...

The Villa Motel was a great place to stay. Located across the bridge from town it took us about 7 minutes in the car to get to Baker Street. Hotel staff was super friendly and helpful, and while the rooms are a bit older they are clean and well kept, and you definitely get your money's worth for what you...

Very nice place to stay,across the bridge From downtown Nelson. Rooms are clean and cosy. There's indoor pool and complimentary waffle breakfast! There is also some 1 and 2 bedroom suites available. A great choice at a reasonable price!

Our 1 night stay was perfect. Very clean and confortable. We wanted an accommodation with fridge, near the river with pool (salted) and spa. Small walk to The beach and The park on Nelson side of The river. We appreciated The closes bedroom and sunny patio with bridge view. Waffles for breakfast!

This was our 1st time at this motel. Although it's out of the way, and an older motel, we would definitely stay again. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. They offer a very basic breakfast, but it was still appreciated, although at 9:00 am the coffee was all gone, and wasn't replenished. The staff was very...
