We stayed for 3 nights, we are a group of 10. We stayed at family cabins and #4. The rooms and washrooms are very clean. The kitchenette in the family cabin is good size with enough kitchen utensils. The view to wake up in the morning is spectacular and most of all the owners are very friendly and accomodating. We... More

The room and washroom were clean and well decorated. Has everything that would expected and a small kitchen with many utensils. Wifi is a bit slow but promised to upgrade very soon. Beautiful view. 3 minutes walk to the hot-spring. Quiet. Very friendly and hospitable couples from Manitoba. Will come again.

Our motel had a beautiful view of the lake. The motel was very clean and the rates were great and you only had a short 2 minute walk to the hot springs. Couldn't ask for more. We had a great time and we will defiantly be returning in the future for years to come.

Spent the afternoon/night in Ainsworth after a week paddling the Slocan. Motel is right beside the hot springs. The family that now owns the motel were lovely! We stayed in #7, has 2 beds in separate rooms which worked with our group of friends. Room was spotless, small kitchenette, BBQ out front & very comfortable beds! Hot springs were cool... More

What a lovely place! Wonderful room, great owners (young couple who only recently purchased the property), and fantastic view and garden. The bed was very comfortable but the room was very warm as there was no air conditioning and just a fan. The owners are very accommodating even offering extras like more towels to memory foam mattress toppers. Would we... More

I drove out on a business trip on my way to Kaslo and stopped at the Ainsworth motel, thankfully they had a room for me. The owner checked in me in, shared info about the area, including the hot springs and places in Kaslo to eat breakfast etc. He was very friendly and very accommodating. The motel is older but...

Right next to the hot springs, fantastic view. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the sun deck looking out over the lake. The owners are very friendly, hospitable and welcoming, and go out of their way to help.

Our family stayed at this motel recently. The rooms were clean, the kitchenette was wonderful to have in the room, and it was quite affordable. The owners were helpful and gave us fun ideas of activities to do in the area. The view is great. It is right next to the hot springs, just a short walk next door. We... More

Fantastic location facing Kootenay Lake. Just a couple minutes walk to the hot springs. Very clean. Affordable. The couple who run the motel are great and very accommodating. We'll definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

This motel was so cute and the owners were super nice and helpful. But the beds were just awful in room 4, very firm and squeaked every time we moved, I wouldn't stay again until they get new beds. But the rooms were super clean, the grounds are beautiful, and it's so much more affordable than the resort rooms.

Thank you for your review. Our rooms have newer mattresses and some are firmer than others. We noted that you had stayed in room three which has our firmer beds. We would have happily switched you to another room with less firm beds. We also have memory foam toppers that we would have provided to help ensure a restful sleep.... More
