Reviewed 17 August 2016 via mobile

The hotel is located right in the heart of downtown. Baker Street and the lake are in walking distance. It is also very quiet. The reason I gave it 4 stars is cause there is not to much privacy with the bathroom in the room. The door swings back and forth and doesn't not lock. You can hear everything. This...

We recently stayed here for a few nights as part of an Interior BC family road trip. We found the staff to be friendly, the room to be clean and modern, and the beds were comfy. Location is central and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. The only challenge was limited parking which forced us to park on the...

Dear stickmana, Thank you for taking the time to rate and leave a review for us on Trip Advisor. We are incredibly happy that you enjoyed your stay with us here. Parking is a continual issue in the downtown core, but the city is working to hopefully improve it moving ahead. We look forward to seeing you again.

The Pros: great location, nice newly renovated rooms with comfortable beds and lake view, roof top patio, nice pub/restaurant/lounge area. The Cons: maybe because it's an old building it was a challenge to sound proof?, but it seems like there is not much insulation from noise. You can clearly hear people just talking in the halls, and every door closing...

My husband and I stayed in the deluxe king room and we're very pleased! The room was clean, newly updated and beautiful view of the water. Located in the heart of Nelson as well which was so convenient for exploring Baker street and the downtown. The roof top patio was great too. All around staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed...

Nice hotel with European vibe. A little on the pricy side. Their wifi was intermittent and off street parking was minimal. Hotel staff very helpful. Location was great, right downtown. Would stay their again.Hubby and I loved Nelson - lots of charm.

Dear magnoliagirl, Glad you enjoyed your stay with us here at the Adventure Hotel. I'm a little surprised by your "pricy" comment, as our rates are by far the lowest in town. Our budget rooms are $80/night and our best rooms (deluxe) are $144 per night for summer season rates. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better...

Our first time in Nelson, we wanted a Hotel in walking distance of the downtown. We found the Adventure hotel on-line and decided it would be perfect. It was. It is and older hotel that has been completely remodelled. The rooms are European style, impeccably clean, modern amenities. Really sort of funky. The dining room and lounge are first rate,...

A welcome surprise in a busy town in the middle of the summer. We were just happy to get the last room, and were very happy with everything. Eclectic decor was used to update this classic old hotel, lots of handcrafted furniture, blended with vintage features and contemporary accessories made us very comfortable, and did I mention clean! This is...

Centrally located, good size room, clean, mini fridge, powerful ac, nice flat screen tv, good wi-Fi. Parking in front is metered but there is a small free parking in the back. I enjoyed the outside patio but didn't use the gym or the sauna. Would stay here again.

You don't have to say in some crumby wooden motel. We just spent a couple of nights in a budget double at the Adventure Hotel and it was great. No, there isn't a kettle in the room, but there's a guest area with cooking facilities and a TV. Breakfast isn't included but there's a fantastic bakery that does coffee and...
