We were a little unsure about this hotel as the photos on line look a bit like a concrete bunker lol The room was clean, the bed was decent and the overall experience was good. I wouldn't recommend this as a luxury hotel but if you want good value for your money and a decent place to sleep this is...

Pleasure to stay here. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, great price. Super close to multiple fabulous food venues and historic surroundings. Enjoyed our stay! Be sure to stop for a Sangria at the Hume or a burger at the "hole"

Stayed two nights while touring the area. This is basic accommodation, but excellent value for the price. Right on Main Street. Would definitely stay there again. Look other reviews the only minor hassle is parking. Not that big a deal. Considering check in is at 4:00 pm and parking is free after 5:00 pm small inconvenience.

If your aesthetic taste includes concrete block structures with cell-like rooms, then you will be happy here. This establishment is by no means a "boutique hotel" as described on its website. The concrete block walls in our room were efflorescing beneath the coat of drab beige paint, which did provide a textural element to the surroundings. Otherwise, this is not...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on our way to Revelstoke and based on the reviews I was sort of shocked at how run down it was. It is an older hotel and the rooms are extremely small. The front desk was very nice but if you are at all picky about where you like to sleep you...

Really nice place to stay right on the main street of Nelson. Modest but with nice design touches. No parking though and you must feed the 2 hour meters in front constantly or park on an adjacent street. Staff will feed the meters for you though if you give them the money to do so!

OK! This is a budget motel, but it has its perks. There is no parking lot. There is free street parking in front of the inn from 5 pm to 9 am. Staff are even willing to feed coins in the parking meter if necessary. Rooms are small. Barely room to turn around with the king-size bed in our room....

We drove into Nelson late evening and stopped to find a place to spend the night. There were no rooms available at the Mountain Hound Inn. We were disappointed but the receptionist Man-Ying went above and beyond to help us find another place nearby. Man-Ying had a cute personality and was so amazingly helpful that next time we head to...

The staff were great, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The air conditioner worked fine ( it was 35 deg C outside ). This is great value as everything else in Nelson is much more. We stayed for four nights.

My husband and I enjoyed 2 nights in Nelson April 7-8, and appreciated staying downtown, a walk from fine restaurants, shops, and the beautiful waterfront strand area. Clean, basic room, reasonable rates, modest continental breakfast. Comfortable King bed, fridge in room. We appreciated the friendly help from Frances and Tom at the desk, and the housekeeper Tatiana insisted on carrying...

“Ask for a room away from the top of the stairs. The far ends of the hallways are best.”
