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

Gorgeous well equipped cabins were clean and well maintained. The view of the lake was beyond belief and only 1 block away from the hot springs. The owners were outgoing, super friendly and totally geared to their guests comfort and satisfaction. Highly recommend it!

I have stayed many times over the years, best place to stay in Ainsworth. Loved it before and new owners are updating. Very comfortable and quiet spot 2 min walk to the hot springs. I always eat dinner at the Restaurant next door, which is excellent and usually have breakfast at the bakery next to the ferry in Balfour. All... More

This motel is right next to the Ainsworth Hot Springs and has a lovely view over the lake. There are new owners who are very helpful and friendly. They, very kindly, supplied extra towels to use at the Hot Springs and restaurant recommendations. The room was clean and quiet with comfortable beds.

Thank you for your kind review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! We have solved our booster issues. Replacing our old booster with a new one was another learning curve for us and I'm sure we will have other things come up that we can over come as new owners. Hope to see you again! Cindy More

We were traveling through; there mid-week, the motel was almost full. This motel is a great option in the area. Plus it's only a few steps to the Hot Springs.

Hotel staff was very friendly at both check-in and check-out. Rooms were clean, you can tell the owners are making upgrades to the hotel as they can. Our room had a kitchenette, and there was a guest BBQ, which was very nice for making ourselves dinner as there is only one restaurant in the whole community. Very short walk to... More
