This is our second stay at the Ainsworth Motel. I prebooked a room over the phone. Our room was clean and comfortable except for the slight musty smell. Bathroom nice and clean and roomy. I also booked this room because it is close to the hotsprings and has a little kitchette, and according to their website and sign, have wifi.... More

Hello and thank you for your review. We apologize that you found our rooms slightly musty. The local weather was very wet and cool in the days leading to your stay. We also do not use heavily scented cleaning products in our rooms. Our WI-FI was working however our signal booster failed. Our guests who requested WI-FI were given the... More

I have been to this motel twice and heading there again in March. I really enjoy the view and the character of the rooms. All I can say is that I am mostly sleeping in the room and making the occasional meal so it has everything I could need. I like the new management. Very easy to talk to and... More

My fiancée and I have stayed here before and loved it so we came back this year for a valentines day getaway. We love the view from the front deck as the sun comes up while overlooking the lake!

Great family place. Older facility, but kept up very well. Ours had two comfy beds, with kitchenette, fridge, nice size tv. Great prices if you're on a budget. Visiting again very soon. Hot Springs just a couple minutes walk away. Friendly managers!

My husband and I travel to the Ainsworth Hotsprings for a much needed get away every fall. We have tried a variety of accommodations in the area and thought we would give the Ainsworth Motel a try as we like to explore new places. I think the title of my review says it all. There is potential in this motel,... More

Hello Heather Thank you for seeing the potential in our motel as we are new owners and are making updates when we can. One challenge with an older building is the capacity of our electrical infrastructure when having room heat on, television on, cooktops on, coffee maker on and turning on a toaster or microwave oven can possibly overwhelm a...

We are glad the Ainsworth motel is now open during the winter. It's has everything you may need and is right bedside the hot springs. Very cute and we look forward to staying here again. The new owner (sorry forgot your name) was very friendly as well

The motel has recently changed hands, and the new owners Glen and Cindy Konowalchuk certainly were hospitable and very helpful in giving us a very pleasant 2 night stay at the motel. When I made the reservations I had no idea that the motel had changed hands, as the last proprietor's name was Glen as well. We stayed in a... More

We just stayed here for one night and it looks like the new owners will continue with the same quality service. We had two rooms, the family unit and one of the smaller rooms and were very satisfied with the arrangements. Lovely view of the lake from the adirondack chairs on the lawn. They are updating the rooms and will... More

We have stayed here several times. Always clean, well stocked rooms. The owners are friendly and always remember us. The view of the lake is wonderful. A really nice, clean place to stay. Nice kitchenettes. We hope the new owners continue with the same service, and quality stay.

We would like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that we have sold the motel and retired to spend some quality time together. We want to thank everyone that stayed with us.
