I arrived in Nelson on a quiet and slightly wet weekend in June. I'd booked the Mountain Hound as much for it's name and site picture as anything else. I initially regretted my decision as I had a room which adjoined 3 other rooms or more importantly the rooms' air conditioning units!!! This was my only view. I don't like... More

As the title says, the rooms are acceptable (i.e. clean) but are nothing to rave about. They a small, utilitarian and have a great view of a blank wall. However, the location if fabulous and the price was right. Well worth it as long as you did not intend to spend much of your time in the room.

The flat screen TV & free wi-fi worked well.The Hotel is situated on the main street of town and is close to... More

After a month at the Yasodhara Ashram on a retreat, it was so nice, for the price of a private room at the highly rated (and very nice) hostel to stay in a private room with private bathroom at the Mountain Hound Inn. Failing to get the cheapest rate on booking.com, I phoned and had no problem getting a room... More

I books 3 rooms here for a quick overnight during a recent ski trip to southern British Columbia. The Mountain Hound was terrific. The front desk was super helpful when I booked and continued that service upon arrival and during our stay. The hotel is clean, inexpensive and obviously has undergone a recent renovation. Skis can be stored downstairs. There... More

Mountain hound is more like a motel. Don't let that put you off. It is not luxury but more than adequate. The beds were extremely comfortable and clean. The showers have excellent water pressure. Cleaned up and well rested this place is perfectly located and priced to hit the 'pow'. Whitewater lived up to its reputation, powder extraordinaire. So much... More

Bedrooms are well equipped, heated and pleasant for few nights. The hotel tenants are friendly and will do their best to make your stay pleasant? There is a huge storage on the first floor if you want to leave your baggages during your skiing day.

Stayed there a few summers ago, had an excellent experience. Been meaning to write a review. The staff was extremely friendly and kind, the rooms were very clean and the beds were so comfy! Perfect location (right downtown)! When I'm in Nelson I'm sure to stay here.

We stayed a couple of nights here whilst doing a road trip on the powder highway and skiing at Whitewater BC. It was great value at $59 a night. The room was clean and comfortable. I'd thought the block work looked a bit cold in the pictures initially but it was a warm comfortable room and we slept really well.... More
