Recently we booked 3 rooms - one with a kitchenette for 3 couples. The kitchenette stove was very dirty, which was especially unacceptable as the post a big sign stating they will charge you $100 if you do not clean the stove. Some one was surely charged for the state of the stove, but the Motel did not clean it...

Inadequate parking, terrible location in relation to anything in Nelson. The supposed wifi only works within a few feet of the main office. Bugs in our room, a tiny old noisy wall mount air condition, peeling old wallpaper, still uses old keys so security is questionable, barhroom was old, no screens on the windows (which probably accounts fo the high...

We booked 2 nights at Villa Motel. After seeing our room, we cancelled the 2nd night to find accommodations elsewhere. Maybe my standards for cleanliness are too high, I don't know, but these are the reasons I couldn't stand it there: when we arrived, the previous occupant's wet towels were still in the bathroom; there were small smears of blood...

Stayed at this hotel a year ago and it has defintely improved from our last stay, which wasn't too bad. The bed was so comfy and the room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The bathroom was quite dated, but had all you needed for a comfy overnight stay. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I planned a last minute trip to Nelson and booked 2 nights at Villa Motel. The motel looks a little dated as you drive past and on arrival it is clear that the place needs a good bit of TLC to smarten all areas up. The young girl on reception was incredibly friendly and welcoming. We were...

The staff and accommodations are fine but the parking and the pool hours aren't. The pool doesn't open till noon which is unfortunate as many people want to use it before they check out, the parking "sucks" as it's "first come first served". The free breakfast is more than adequate, a pleasant stay overall.

Nicely renovated rooms. The kids enjoyed winding down in the pool. We also cooked supper on the BBQ. A short walk across the bridge brought us to the beach where we enjoyed a movie in the park. The Villa had the best motel waffle batter we have ever tasted!

The Villa Motel was a pleasant surprise... it looks a bit run down from the outside but my room, actually a 2-room suite, was in great shape... apparently recently reno'd. TV, fridge, a/c and wi-fi worked fine. Bathroom was a bit dated but clean. The bedroom window of my room looked out over the patio for another room... I mean...

the room was small, which we were warned ahead of time. We didn't have a reservation, so we took what we could get. Our only complaint is the parking at the hotel. It's 1st come 1st serve and that caused some headaches loading an unloading the vehicle

Thank you for your review Diane H. Sorry to hear your stay wasn't spectacular. During the high season parking is an issue. Although we have more than enough parking space to fit everyone, as it is a first come first serve (park) basis, parking may not be directly in front of your room. In some cases, there won't be parking...

Spent two nights here and loved it! Waffles in the morning, swimming in their pool or you can walk across the bridge and the big beach is right there! The walk back dries you off nicely! The staff was wonderful and the rooms were clean and air conditioned. I noticed too, that if you keep the windows closed the rooms...
