There's not much to choose from at Ainsworth for accommodations. The "Resort" hotel is quite pricey considering what you get ... which is a very plain and small room and a pool entry voucher. I've stayed there twice before. It's nothing special and its priced unreasonably high. The other Motel (Mermaid) is a complete dive. Do not stay there even... More

Let me just say this...it's a simple little place run by a wonderful couple...as clean and comfortable as any five star big city place...Glen n Elaine, are simple the most accommodating "friends" you will ever hope to meet. Rooms were so comfortable I felt like I was home... small beach across the road private and the views unsurpassed... felt like... More

The only thing warmer than the hot cave at Ainsworth Hot Springs is the welcome you will get at the Ainsworth Motel from Glen and Elaine. We stayed with them for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. They were so friendly and welcoming we would have no hesitation in staying with them again. When we left it was like... More

We stayed here last spring!!! Liked it so much we came back! The view alone is worth the visit. Very de-stressing, and of course did some sight seeing and had a few dips in the hot springs pool and caves. Very reasonable accommodation and clean.

We made reservations for Jan 8,9 and 10th. A couple of days before our check in Elaine called us to tell us that because of the extremely cold weather most of the water systems in Ainsworth were frozen up. She had also called around and found a motel for us in Kaslo. We were extremely disappointed but told her we... More

We look forward to this trip for a peaceful relaxing stay. Glen and Elaine are the owners and were great hosts. They are great people and go out of there to make sure you have a great stay. The views are beautiful of the lake and mountains. The rooms are clean and the beads are very comfortable. Great location right... More

We loved our 2-night stay at this above-average-to-good sweet, simple motel. I would not rate it higher only because it's not what you might refer to as "boutique." The owners are charming and extremely helpful as well as being skilled at keeping the property neat and tidy. Our room had a kitchenette so we prepared simple meals there with ease.... More

We were looking to get away for the weekend without spending a fortune and this motel was a nice find. About half the price of the resort and a comfortable stay. Clean room and great hosts. Just a short walk up the hill to the hot springs. Would definitely go back.

The room is clean and the view is nice... but let's have a little honesty with these reviews: this is a one star motel at best. The staff was friendly enough but overbearing and the rooms were clean but very crowded with ancient beds and strongly detergent scented bedding. The "kitchenette" is essentially a hotplate.
