Stayed here a few nights back. The owner Cindy was so helpful and friendly. The view here is great and a very short walk to the hot springs. It is an older motel and has newish owners and they are slowly upgrading the place. The rooms are fairly small but the place is very clean. We stayed in room 3... More

This is a clean, well-kept, older motel. It overlooks Kootenay Lake and is an easy walk to Ainsworth Hot Springs, which is practically next door. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the motel has some pet-friendly rooms. We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the Ainsworth Motel on July 29th. It was our favorite accommodation in the Kootenays! Beautiful view, two minutes from the Hot Springs, friendly, helpful hosts, and our room was great. We really enjoyed sitting on the front lawn overlooking the lake and visiting with other travelers. We will be back.

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.
