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... More

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... More

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.... More

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. The food served is as close to authentic you will get in the Koots, featuring food from the Punjabi region (northern India). One of my favorite places to eat! I... More

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... More

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.

Wifi was good, breakfast was free and since we didn't know it was a pleasant surprise. No places to sit and enjoy your breakfast but we won't complain since it was free.

They gave me a complimentary upgrade to King room when I reserved a queen. That's always nice :). The room is good looking & clean. Nice people at the front desk. Good price (lowest in the area). Good internet, that's very important for me.

We spent one night in Villa Motel. The room wasn't the cleanest room in the world but wasn't bad. The building needs renovation. It's getting old and should be painted and deeply cleaned up.
