After spending 3 day and 4 nights camping around b.c and during the last 2 nights camping we got rained out. So we decided to head to our next destination Ainsworth. We found Mermaid lodge on bookings.com. When we arrived super early, Marsha let us check in 4 hours early. But because of the storm the night before they had... More

We stayed only a few days in Mermaid Lodge. Wanted to swim in the AInsworth hotsprings are a heavy period of clearing the house of my father in Creston. The hotsprings are about 100 meter from this motel. The room was clean and contained everything needed. The view from our room was spectacular: The deep blue Kootenay Lake and the... More

don't let looks deceive you when you see Mermaid Lodge. We stayed for two nights, three days. We were able to check in early with no heads up. The manager is the greatest. She took great care of us, answered all our silly tourist questions and made sure we had the best stay possible. It was very quiet and extremely... More

Very, very friendly people here. While the motel itself shows some age, it is very comfortable and extremely clean. We had room 7 which is a two bed unit with balcony view of Kootenay Lake. The property also has a hot tub which unfortunately we did not use as we were both tired after riding motorcycles for 9 hours. Overall... More

This is an older motel, but they have made some updates and it was clean. Marsha upgraded our room, since the TV was not working in the room we booked. The view was nice and there was a small balcony. It was raining when we were there, so did not sit outside, except at the hot springs. The flooring had... More

Almost every year for our anniversary, we stay at the Mermaid. The rooms are clean and the owners are friendly and obliging. They know the area and give us great ideas for activities. We usually get a kitchenette so we can cook most meals. This time we couldn't find a bottle opener and they obliged by giving us one to... More

We have stayed 2x at this motel. The rooms are clean and the service is friendly and accommodating. My friends and I travel with our dogs and the staff is very dog friendly and savvy. Great view of the lake and if the Hot Springs would clean up there trash it would be even better. Don't let the resort suck... More

We had the room with the kitchen unit and it was very nice and very affordable. The staff was awesome and friendly. Beautiful views of the lake and mountains and it was so quiet and peaceful. I would definitely recommend this place and I will be going back sometime real soon.

The halls need a wash. There was garbage all over the property. The matresses are old. They've upgraded the duvets and floors. Its like staying an old ladies house but one you'd come back too maybe every few years. Its not for everyone; its for those who like a clean place to sleep.
