I stayed here during a bike tour of the Selkirk Loop and the Mountain Hound Inn was perfect. We got a room at the end of the hallway and had a nice view of the water. Beds were very comfortable and towels soft. The bathroom was small, no outlet, but the shower was fine. We were able to store our... More

Staff was very nice and informative. Good location, right in the city centre surrounded by heritage buildings. Tourist office and a very scenic waterfront park nearby. The complimentary breakfast was not appealing, we went to a local bakery for our breakfast instead. The hotel is in a small old building on a busy street with no elevator. Small and old... More

We stayed here for two nights recently and were very disappointed. We had originally booked three nights but left a day early - would have left after one night except for the 48 hour cancellation policy. ( All the other places we stayed at during this trip had a 24 hour policy!) The room is very small, the walls are... More

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.

I stayed at the Mountain Hound Inn mid April while working at a Music Festival for 4 days at the local Selkirk College. The rooms can be as low priced as $59.00 per night, and are basic lodging. 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
