6 Hotels near Castlegar Airport

Editor's Picks Aug 27, 2013 | Staff
Why these hotels? Castlegar is a small city  with a population of about 7,000 in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. It's a beautiful place that is nestled within the Selkirk mountains and located at the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia rivers. This regional airport services mostly private planes, but Air Canada flies in from Vancouver and Calgary daily, and only during the daylight hours due to the fact that the airport runway is closely surrounded by mountains. 

I chose hotels that have the best ratings and amenities, and decided to highlight a couple of hotels from nearby Nelson, which is about half an hour away, as most of the hotels in Castlegar are showing their age.
651 18th Street, Castlegar
1.9 km from Castlegar Airport
Super 8 is a friendly place with some good amenities for the traveller. It has an indoor pool with waterpark and an on-site restaurant. It serves a good free breakfast and offers its guests free Wi-Fi and parking. It's only 6 minutes to the airport and 5 to downtown Castlegar. Out of 3 hotels in Castlegar, it's ranked # 1 and has a guest rating of 7.9/10.
153 Baker Street, Nelson
32.6 km from Castlegar Airport
Best Western in Nelson, B.C. is located right in the downtown area of Nelson within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Guests praised the hotel's location, staff and on-site restaurant. It offers free Wi-Fi and parking and is 32 minutes to the airport in Castlegar. It has a guest rating of 8.2/10.
408 Victoria Street, Nelson
33.0 km from Castlegar Airport
The Cloudside Inn is a bed & breakfast located in the heart of downtown Nelson, B.C. close to restaurants and shops. It offers several room choices and even a 4-room apartment with kitchen and private entrance. It has a garden terrace and sun deck for quiet enjoyment and offers free to all guests:  Wi-Fi, a very well-reviewed breakfast and parking. It's ranked # 1 out of 4 hotels in Nelson and has a near-perfect guest rating of 9.9/10. There's no pool, restaurant or elevator on site and if you're thinking of booking here, it seems to me that you may need to book quite a bit in advance, as it fills up quickly. Some rooms (but not all) have shared bathroom facilities. It's smoke-free inside, but smokers are allowed to smoke on the deck and terrace.
