Not our 1st stay and wont be our last stay. Owners went out of there way again and changed us rooms do to my allergies. They have done some upgrades which have made the units nicer. Still need a few upgrades including better internet service, and then they would be worth a 5 star.

Second time we've been here. Very friendly helpful service. Stayed in a very clean 2BR with kitchenette where we cooked our meals. Kitchen supplies are basic but there is a small dining table at which to eat. The rooms are ample in size. The hotel is just steps from Ainsworth Hot Springs. If you tire of the Hot Spring crowd...

Our 17th annual visit to Mermaid Lodge and the Ainsworth Hotsprings. Mermaid Lodge perfect as usual. We really enjoy having our own kitchen and the lake view. New comfy bed and friendly help. We will return again.

The owners where very friendly and helpful. Nice clean room. Comfortable and homely. Sadly the hot tub was not working. It looked like reno's where being done so the huge dumpster blocked our view of the lake. Over all we had a great stay and would go back

This hotel is over 100 years old and the original lodge at Ainsworth Hot Springs. Additional rooms have been added at a later date, but also have the feel of staying at a private home rather than a typical motel. It is next to the upper parking lot at the hot springs, so you can walk back and forth in... More

Stopped in without a reservation. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Gave us a good room at a good price. Great view, strong wifi, and easy access to hot spring. Kitchenette was stocked adequately to cook a nice meal.

This place looks like the cabin your grandpa built but it ticks all the boxes for cleanliness, location and service. We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a kitchen and it was fine for two old guys on a golf trip. Not a place you would take to impress a new girlfriend. It is right next door to the... More

Very friendly owners, but unfortunately they haven't invested in their hotel for a long time. Except for the fact that it lies next to the hotsprings, there is nothing to say about the hotel. The furniture seem to be picked up at garage sales and the hotel is an extension of a personal property, the storage room with a zillion... More

This is an old bldg that needs some TLC and upgrading but is very cleanly kept and run by very friendly folks. Our room had a kitchen and the office had a modest selection of food items to prepare given the fact there appears to not be a grocery store anywhere in the area. Sleep quality is only avg because...
