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...

The motel is quaint and reasonably priced with everything you need. It's very conveniently located right next to the Ainsworth Hot Springs, and hot spring towels are provided with the room. A small selection of food and essentials can be purchased at the front desk. Our room was spotlessly clean and quiet. The motel is motorcycle and family friendly, and... More

Me and a friend dropped by here for an overnight stay on a road trip and it was nice. It is walking distance to the hot springs, which is a must for any traveller. The rooms were small and the beds were comfy. I would come here again. But when the hot springs closes, the people who are leaving make... More

This motel is old and has not been modernized but the linens were great, rooms spotless and plenty of hot water and wifi. The staff are also the friendliest we've had. They gave us a great recommendation for dinner at the JB's Grill up the road.

The motel looks oild from the outside but many rennovations and upgrades were evident on the inside. There was a small balcony off of our room with a picnic... More

Owners were so helpful and lovely to talk to. Pet friendly! Rooms were clean and well maintained. Wonderful sun deck to relax on. Steps from the hot springs. Price is good compared to other places in the area. Do recommend and will stay here again.

The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated, but they are clean and well kept. It is right next to the hot springs and you can walk over in a minute. Of you need anything or want to know about the area just ask and a wealth of knowledge is right at hand.

This is our third time to stay at Mermaid. It has taken on a new look with some updating. Marsha and Neil are always so nice to treat us as their old friends . Whenever we want to visit Ainsworth Hot Springs, we think of Mermaid. It is clean and convenient, just steps away from the Hot Spring Cave. Most... More

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
