“Would be fine if not for traffic noise.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Not the cheapest hotel in town, but room was fine, clean and well furnished, reception staff were friendly and helpful, and hotel is very close to centre, being at the end of the main street.

This hotel would be fine if you are happy to be early to bed and early to rise, it stands on a hill, very near a major intersection. Traffic noise is considerable from 0630, particularly on the Baker St frontage. Can't see how the back would be any quieter, it overlooks the main highway through town.

So, very good if you don't mind being up early!, probably only average if you are a late nighter looking for a sleep in.

Room Tip: Beware traffic noise from 0630!

Thanks for the review. I must say that traffic noise is not a complaint we hear of very often. Typically our guests choose the Best Western because they find it to be very quiet compared to other properties in town. It is true that the rooms that face inside towards our courtyard are the quietest however the views are not as nice as the rooms that face outside towards Baker Street or Kootenay Lake.

Perhaps your room was one that faced Baker Street that was the closest to the intersection. We apologize that it kept you up at night. Next time you are coming through town give us a heads up and we can easily accommodate you in a very quiet room.

We appreciate your business.

Very friendly check in staff had lots of information for us. Nice room with a view across the river. Had asked for a King but got 2 Queens instead, regardless the room was still very good. Handy to the downtown area, just a short stroll and you're there. Only downside was the restaurant, breakfast was very slow and not very good. Other than that, very good hotel to stay at.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the river.

We went to visit family. We had the most comfortable room. The staff was very friendly.. Room was spacious and really clean. Love their clean room program. Hotel is in a great location, right on baker street. Front desk staff were awesome, Always a friendly greeting whenever we walked by. Restaurant staff were also very pleasant.

We had a great time at this hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were very pleasant. Brian displayed somewhat of an attitude the first night but was great the second.It could have been because he thought I was a snow hippy.

The service in the baker street inn was extraordinary! Our female server was amazing ( I'm sorry I can't remember your name). She provided the best experience in a public establishment I've had in a very long time.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to others

Thanks so much for the glowing review Geoff. Perhaps you caught him in a rare moment of unfriendliness because he is always a favorite of many guests. I am so happy to hear that all of the staff were able to provide exceptional service to you. We appreciate you taking the time to give us a Tripadvisor review. We hope to see you again soon.

Could not have had a better stay anywhere. Our large family met in Nelson for both a birthday celebration & memorial service. We occupied 7 or 8 rooms & everything was 5 star from check in to check out. The food was excellent both in the restaurant & for the catered brunch. We had a big family coming & going & were met with friendliness & accommodation from everyone. Diane at the desk was so friendly & helpful to all of us. We will stay there again the next time we visit our Nelson family.

Comfortable beds, a variety of good pillows, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, and real glass tumbler and wine glasses makes this hotel a very comfortable place to visit. The also have a small exercise room and hot tub on site. The staff were helpful, there is a computer station and printer available to guests with two computers - no waiting. The attached restaurant is very good and reasonably priced for the area. This hotel is about one block from the best shopping in a small town that I have ever come across. Baker Street, lined with Heritage buildings that house shops, restaurants, natural food stores, alternative healing therapists, bike shops and supplies, a Home Hardware with a designer inspired window. So much to see before even considering the myriad of nature options available for all levels of activity.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for one. The inner rooms have a lovely mural to look at and the light is goo...

We recently had a great stay at this Nelson hotel and I must say that the room was very nice and it was very convenient for the small dog we had with us, easy access to the outside. The staff all seemed to be dog friendly too.
