I'm glad I found this place for a 3 day get away with my elderly mother and 2 sisters. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite which was very clean and comfortable.It is a very peaceful location away from the city lights yet close enough to town to take advantage of restaurants and shopping. We would not hesitate to stay... More

The manager Laurie was incredibly friendly and helpful and went out of her way more than once to insure we had the best stay possible. The rooms were incredibly clean and very nice.. The spectacular view accross the lake to the mountains and the city of Nelson was a great way to wake up each morning. Definitely get a lot... More

First, let me just warn travellers with allergies or that are sensitive to scents to stay elsewhere. Upon entering our room we were overwhelmed by the very strong plug in air freshener plugged into one of the living room outlets. We quickly removed it and stashed it away in one of the kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately the strong scent lingered, even... More

I would say that the beautiful name "Glacier Resort" doesn't match the level of service it provides. It is located not on the lake shore, the rooms are small and modest, the bedclothes striped, which I have found weird. Other resorts and motels provide white bedclothes as the symbol of cleanness. Breakfast is not offered during winter season. I should... More

Booking on line, sight unseen and going by only photos can be a bit daunting, but not this time! We drove up the perfectly manicured drive to the Resort and checked in at the Office. Staff were very friendly and pleasant. Upon entering our room we found "Spotless" accomodations. We had a small suite with a kitchen, seperate bedroom and... More

A small group of family and friends try to have an annual scrapbook retreat in British Columbia or Alberta either May or June. Sept. 28 - Oct. 2 was the soonest we could manage one. Luckily, Kokanee Glacier Resort only uses their "breakfast room" (a separate building across from the motel rooms) July & August and we were able to... More

The Kokanee Glacier Resort is a 1950s motel that has been updated and rebranded as a "resort." The rooms are large, homey, clean, and affordable.Service was very friendly. A great place for families, travellers with pets, people on a budget, and guests who like a more informal accommodating atmosphere. It is a distance out of town, and not on the... More

We chose to stay at the Kokanee Glacier Resort based on the many positive reviews here. I'm happy to report that it more than met expectations. It's not posh, but it doesn't claim to be. What it offers is very clean, comfortable rooms, a great location, and a staff that seems dedicated to ensuring that guests enjoy their stay. All... More

The Kokanee Glacier Resort was a pleasure to spend our vacation at. Our room was clean and updated and felt like home. Lori was very friendly and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone and when I have the opportunity to come back, we will definitely stay here again.
