Positives: Helpful staff.

Negatives: Strange smelling rooms.

Comments: We booked this hotel at the last minute and were quite happy. However, the first room we were shown had a very off-putting smell, a mix of stale cigarettes and other, undefined elements. We spoke with the front desk person who came to our room, agreed their was a problem, and promptly placed us in another room. Everyone we dealt with, from the housekeeping staff to the restaurant personnel, was friendly, efficient, and helpful.

Positives: Very close to downtown. Could shop and not have to worry about driving in the snow.

Negatives: They put us on the floor with the banquet halls and the last night we were there everyone was outside our window smoking and laughing until 230am.

Comments: Priced a little too high for the service we received. The restaurant staff was rude and slow. The only person to show us any care was the waitress on the morning we left after telling her about our very unrestful evening. When checking in request a room on one of the upper floors.

    • Nelson's Best Western is the only full-service hotel situated on bustling, historic Baker Street. Consequently, you are in the heart of the action - galleries, the Capitol Theatre and much more that Nelson has to offer. There are so many things to see and do in Nelson that planning to stay a few days is perhaps your most important consideration In the early 1980s, the residents of Nelson undertook an important and ambitious heritage restoration plan. Because of this tremendous community effort, Nelson now boasts over 350 heritage buildings, both throughout the downtown core and residential neighborhoods. Today, heritage walking and driving tours take visitors back to a time filled with grand Victorian architecture and garden tea parties. Visitors can also ride along our scenic waterfront on the fully restored Streetcar 23. And if you're a movie buff, be sure to visit the Nelson Fire Hall, which was used to great effect in the movie Roxanne, filmed in Nelson in 1986 and starring Steve Martin and Darryl Hannah. In addition to the charming heritage ambiance, Nelson is considered the number one small arts town in Canada, and consistently ranks in the top five in North America. Every summer you can experience Artwalk, which brings together all manner of artistic expression with local businesses to provide a thoroughly entertaining walking tour around town. In the third weekend every July, you can also enjoy Streetfest, our version of a summer block party, and an event that is gaining an international reputation as one of the finest street performer festivals in the world. It's an absolute must-see if you're in the area. The beautifully restored Capitol Theatre also provides Nelson with a variety of local productions throughout the year, ranging from pantomime, to plays, to musicals. The eclectic mix of many artist and artisan-run specialty shops and boutiques further enhances the cultural charm of Nelson, and the international flavour of the many cafes, restaurants and nightclubs provides many options to meet any taste. Take a stroll down historic Baker Street and you'll see what we mean. Last, but most certainly not least, outdoor recreation is a large fact of life in Nelson. The lifestyle that the area's spectacular geography and weather conditions provide makes this an extraordinary four-season playground for outdoor enthusiasts. The area offers "as good as it gets" conditions for whitewater skiing, golfing, hiking, camping, fishing, biking - whatever you like to do outdoors, Nelson truly has it all.
