This motel was a little ways out of town, there is a sign that indicates it is coming up which is helpful. The motel is across the street from the lake but there is no visible place to get to the water. The room was workable, futon was comfortable for the kids, the bed was good, kitchen stocked with the... More

I booked into the Kokanee Glacier Resort in some desperation because I needed a room for a night on a weekend when everything in the interior of BC was booked up. The resort is about 10 minutes outside of Nelson, so it had some rooms available. I grabbed one for me and my dog. While the name may be overselling... More

The room was clean and the futon was comfortable to sleep on. The pressure in the shower was low but not too bad. You can hear people in the room above so I would... More

Just finished a three-night stay at this lovely little motel. We booked it based on the positive Trip Advisor rating and reviews. Once again, Trip Advisor did not let us down. This property is one of those great, family-run "old school" motels that provide excellent value for travellers weary of mediocre chain hotels. We stayed in a very comfortable, one-bedroom... More

This little hotel came highly recommended from other trip advisor members. And it was very clean and well updated with new tub surround and newer flooring, clean updated kitchen area and nicely done painted furniture and fun little bedroom lighting etc. The grounds were beautiful too and although we didn't have breakfast it is provided each morning. The hotel is... More

Pros: - Our room was great. We were by the laundry room and vending machines and after closing the nearest window is was so quiet you could easily believe you were anywhere in the hotel - Good size bed for two adults - Excellent breakfast with local fresh fruits - Just the right distance North of Nelson and just South...

We stayed for 6 nights in a two bedroom suite. It was spacious, clean, very soft beds and comfy towels, and good shower water pressure. Very kid friendly. Gorgeous view!!! The kitchen was well equipped in our suite and the included breakfast was delicious! A wide variety of fresh fruit, warm muffins, coffee, tea, toast, omelettes, cereal, milk and juice.... More

Very good and accommodating staff. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. Location is very nice. Breakfast is ok and I think that they should have at least 2 omelette cooker so people don't need to wait longer for the omelette to cook.
