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...

Convenient location, good price and full service without the high cost of other hotels in the area. Very personal service. A big thank you to Frank, the manager, who helped us out personally with our trip difficulties!

We stayed at the Villa Motel in Nelson for 1-night on the B.C. Day long weekend ($101). The motel is located on a small knoll just across the bridge as you leave Nelson. It is a long, narrow building, 2-stories on one side and one on the other, with the office in the middle and a parking lot in front...

Dear Ndser, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It is great to hear our work on our exterior is being noticed. Thank you for that kind feedback. On behalf of our morning breakfast staff, allow me to apologize for the service you received during our complimentary continental. We do understand our free breakfast service is...

We stayed here because it was a good price and fit our budget. The good was big, with a larger area by the bathroom sink with a closet, fridge and chair. The bathroom was a decent size. They had done some upgrade but the carpet was old and stained and the ceiling was probably the original, which was dirty. The...

This was my first visit to the city of Nelson B.C. From driving through the city it seemed that it certainly had a european charm, sitting nestled on a hillside. We were on a motorcycle trip, so just passed through not stopping to eplore. Our destination for the nite was the Villa Motel. This is an old motel, it has...

Thank you for the details review Carolegab. Just to clarify your review, you had booked a queen but when you extended your stay the Standard Queens were already sold out. We offered the next available room which was the Standard King room. I just wanted to clarify this because the way it is written sounds like you reserved a queen...

Older motel but fairly well kept. Reasonably clean. Rooms are average in size. Parking can be a bit constricted if you arrive late. Restaurant on site. Nice location along the north side of the bridge and lake/river. Nice location for the sunrise and quiet once the day traffic has subsided. Pool included however we did not use. Close enough to...

Great budget hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. For a place to just crash.. it works. No bells or whistles. Somewhat updated decor for a motel. Showers are older. Staff is helpful. Breakfast was offered, however the amazing cafes of Nelson win out. Would stay again.

Set on a busy street overlooking the bridge and river, this hotel has the perks of a comfortable hot tub and a useful laundry. The room was very comfortable and with the air conditioning, quiet to the outside traffic noise. Reasonable given the offerings.

We had booked our vacation through the Kootenay's the August long weekend at the spur of the moment. Needless to say, there was not much available. When we arrived at the Villa we were a little hesitant as to what to expect. The room was very pleasant, much better than expected. The room was large - one queen and two...

This was our second stay at this facility. Once again, we were very pleased. One of their rooms includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a queen bed, one has two double beds. This is an excellent option for our family when we are visiting Nelson. The rooms are modest, clean, conveniently located and well priced....

Thank you for your review Francie! Yes, the standard room with three beds is a perfect fit for families that don't need a living room or kitchenette.
