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...

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...

Older motel, but was clean. Had a problem with TV remote (previous guests replaced batteries with old ones) and staff promptly fixed situation. Across lake from town so had to drive to get there but easy short drive. Would stay there again.

Fairly clean rooms that are older but have some minor remodeling done. Airconditioner worked well but was better after I cleaned an quarter inch of dust and dirt out of its screen. TV was not HD . Shower was very weak. Nice location. Quiet. Very friendly staff and the pool looked good. Free breakfast is really just coffee, OJ, toast,...

The Villa Motel is just over the bridge on the way out of town. Quiet motel with indoor pool and spa, playground for the kids and nice walking paths over the bridge. To far to walk to town but parking was great right in front of your room. A Budget hotel but good place to lay your head when traveling...
