This is a nice hotel with a great pub and restaurant attached to it. The rooms that are not renovated are as expected, a little bit run down but fine if you're not expecting luxury. The bathrooms are about the same. It was nice that there was self serve coffee in the hallway near our room in the morning! However,... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. We are very excited to announce that starting on April 15th, renovations are starting in the last section of the hotel!

Even though I disagree with the hotel's name change (should have remained The Grand), the recent renovations have really hit the mark, particularly considering the room cost. The hotel's location in downtown Nelson, puts you in the middle of what was a surprisingly robust downtown core. Great restaurants and coffee shops all within walking distance. And don't dismiss the hotel's... More

Amazingly clean, new, friendly, affordable, right in the middle of downtown Nelson, and only $49 for a single. Far better than any other $50 motel I stayed at in the interior. If you want to spend up to $99 they have bigger/nicer rooms too. Definitely give this place a try if you're on a budget.

I first booked this place to save money on a big ski trip that I had in B.C. for 3 weeks. At first I was going to stay here 1 night & then plan my next ski days & hotels for the next few days. Check in was efficient & quick. I stayed in the smallest room. Bunk beds, private... More

Nice place with the recent remodel. Clean, very euro hostel feel, but private rooms (shared shower for the room I had at least).Simple, yet functional. Good wifi as well. Location is good as you're only a block off the main drag, Baker St and can walk anyone downtown. No dedicated parking, but street parking is free at night at least.

Upon arrival, the hotel had a good vibe, girls at the front desk were very nice and helpful. We stayed in a budget room. Awesome decor and room size was just right and had everything we needed. The shared shower was always clean. Great value for our money and would stay here again. Restaurants and all other shops are within... More

Thank you for your review of the hotel and bringing issues to my attention. I would like to address the mattress problem with you. As we have done upgrades to the hotel, we also had custom bunk beds make for some of our rooms. The mattress that you had is a memory foam mattress, some love them, some don't. We... More

First off I never stayed here before the Renovation, but when asking a few locals I was directed here. Room was nice, visible brick wall, glass enclosed shower with rain head and all. Pub was a lot of fun and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Price was very good for a traveller.

Place is nice and clean, the new renos made a huge difference, however the walls are super thin,bring ear plugs as you will basically be sleeping with whoever is in the room beside you. Can actually hear them breathing, and using the bathroom too,our neighbor had the TV cranked all night we didnt sleep much.

Guys ski trip to Whitewater. We had 3 rooms. 2 singles in the new part (very nice) and one double in the old wing (small but worked well). We would definitely stay here again. Nice Euro feel. Funky little town.
