Reviewed July 24, 2014

Was pleasantly suprised when the owner greated us with cold bottles of water and clean towels after a very long drive. The rooms are clean and the continental breakfast was sufficient to start the day. Very good customer service.

The Villa Motel offers great rates, and clean rooms. The motel has had new owners now for a couple of years and are renovating and upgrading it nicely. The rooms are very clean and the beds are as comfortable as a four diamon hotel offers. I know this, for I work in one. I enjoy going back to the motel for a nice swim and a relaxing night after an adventerous day in Nelson.

This is a very good motel. Our room was comfortable, well equipped and convenient for a refreshing, if a bit chilly, inside swimming pool. The onsite restaurant provided hearty meals, including Chinese ones, at a reasonable price. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nelson is an interesting town and the surrounding area is lovely. We can confidently recommend the Villa Motel if you are touring the region.

This is clearly an older motel so we were quite surprised to open the door and find a whole set of beautiful and elegant new furniture. We could see where the old furniture was stored so we could appreciate what a wonderful upgrade it was. We were also very happy to open the door and feel very cool air inside when it was 93 degrees F outside. There was a large flat-screen TV and a refrigerator, good for keeping cold drinks for a hot day. The bathroom is still old, but the room is larger than the newer motels and comfortable. The only issue was that the two new armchairs had no light nearby for reading. But there was new deck furniture outside which I used for reading. No hair dryer. The staff was very friendly. We would certainly stay there again.

We believe we found the best two restaurants in Nelson. The first was Baba's Taste of India on Baker Street. Having recently returned from India, we especially enjoying reliving the trip with wonderful Indian food and atmosphere. The second was Max & Irma's Restaurant on Kootenay Street. We were warmly welcomed and the service was great. Many wonderful dishes to choose from. The meals we had in these two places will stand out in our memory they were so good.

Very good, clean and comfortable accommodation, within easy walking distance of Nelson town centre. Stayed for only one night but would happily have stayed for longer. Reasonable rates for quality of accommodation provided.

Stayed here for 1 night. The hotel is in the midst of being upgraded, as seen by the newer furniture, TV's, windows and doors in the rooms. Traditional 1960's style wood construction hotel. Floors are creaky and bathrooms are dated. Overall good service and room was clean.

The Villa Motel is situated just outside Nelson which you might feel to be a disadvantage. It isn't. This is mainly because Nelson employs some very efficient traffic wardens and there is ample parking at the motel. The staff are efficient, and helpful, the manager even repaired my laptop for me! The rooms might be, if you are picky, look slightly tired, but nevertheless spotlessly clean and containing all that is needed. but they were being renovated at the time of our visit, so by the time you get there, they well be cutting edge. Comfortable beds, quiet and reasonably priced. We'd visit again
