10/10 Exceptional

We stayed 3 nights, Room was serviced every day. Very comfortable unit with everything we needed. Motel is in a nice area and very handy to everything including the airport. On a lighter note, if the motel manager recommends the local Indian restaurant to his guests, he should ensure there is extra toilet paper in the room, especially if you have the hot Lamb Madras. The food was absolutely delicious. Overall, our stay in Nelson was fabulous and we highly recommend The Arcadia Motel.
