“Great place, great town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

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 is a small, free continental breakfast; nothing fancy, buy enough to get you going in the morning. The location is perfect, right on Baker Street downtown so you can walk to the numerous restaurants and pubs. Parking is a bit of an issue, however.
Nelson is the perfect mix of funkiness and mountain culture. I will be back!

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 so that the first day we tried to go up the road was closed until later in the am due cars getting stuck! You definitely need snow tires/chains. Once up there is so worth it, just be warned if you park by the glory chair the runs back down close at 2:45 on the dot so leave yourself enough time to ski down.
Recommend snow shoeing at Cottonwood Lake for a non ski day, virgin snow up to our knees, definitely an alternative workout!

The mountain hound is centrally located and walkable to al the cute shops and restaurants. The Hume is slightly pricey but so many different rooms, we enjoyed listening to band when dinning in the library. Oso Negro is a must for coffee/breakfast stop. All you can eat fish and chips on Tuesday (forget name of place, but well advertised) but have to be there by 7pm. Leos great value. Had take out from deli at co-op for lunch with tasty options. Breakfast at Mountain Hound is very continental, piece of fruit, muffin, juice and coffee so don't expect this to be brunch! Food at whitewater is exceptional for a ski resort and eateries in Nelson abound.

Room Tip: Note that there is no elevator. Enormous storage for skis.

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. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the breakfast enough to sustain a mornings skiing coffee, banana, muffin.

We stayed for one night while travelling across BC. This hotel is right on the main street of a sleepy little town. The rooms are small and made of cement blocks. Very sound proof. If you want a great night sleep while travelling. The price is great, the beds are super comfy, the location is wonderful, the town is quaint, and there is virtually no noise.

Stopped for one night on a BC/AB road trip with my wife and parents. Great little find! Awesome location on the main street in Nelson, the lady who checked us in was really helpful and also the lady at the desk when we checked out the following morning, sorry I don't remember your names! The rooms were quite small but for the price what do you expect. Although small they were perfectly suited for our needs, bigger TV's would have been a bonus as struggled to watch while in bed. Beds were SUPER comfy, easily the best aspect of the rooms. Bathroom nicely reno'd and clean. Shower head could do with fixing as was spraying water on the wall, didn't bother me but it will bother the owner soon enough :) Great little continental breakfast, muffins, fruit and tea+coffee, just enough to get you started for the day.
All in all a great little hotel and we will no doubt stay again next time we are in town.
