Mountain Hound Inn, Nelson
Very Good8.0
The staff was very helpful and offered to put money in the parking meter for us every hour til 5pm. The ski locker was also a huge plus - since there is no elevator, it was nice to not have to carry our skis up and down the stairs. Very clean rooms, and comfortable beds.

Great Stay at the Mountain Hound Inn
Had a great stay at the Mountain Hound Inn. We were in town to ski Kicking Horse, and the location was perfect for that reason. It's on the way from Golden to the ski area, and about a 5-10 minute walk to downtown Golden. The room was small, but it did not matter since there are two large comfortable lounge areas and a community kitchen for those wanting to save a bit by cooking for themselves.

Always Good
I've stayed here for winter trips in Nelson several times over several years. It's still good, rooms are nice, location is great if you like being in town.

Convenient and Clean Hotel
Stayed here while on a cycling trip with fellow travelers. Centrally located in Nelson. Room was clean, bed comfortable, and shower hot! Staff very friendly. Can't ask for more!

Very disappointing. No elevator for seniors. No parking lot. Had to drive around the block several times to even find a spot close enough to hotel. Then had to plug meter every hour.
