4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

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. We had a clean and quiet room (with a kitchenette), comfy bed, spectacular view. The owners were very thoughtful & friendly. They even supplied towels for us to use at... More

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

The ainsworth motel is not fancy but worthy of five stars. It is spotlessly clean, fully equipped kitchen, good beds, quiet, dog friendly, great public beach across the road and steps away from the hot springs. Bring your own supplies as there is no shopping here. This area is beautiful and worth the drive. About ten minutes away is the... More

We just stayed for 2days/1night in this place. We picked this motel since since it was just walking distance to the Ainsworth Hot Springs which we wanted to visit. We were delightfully surprised to find that the motel offered more than what we expect. It was just across a very beautiful serene lake. We are a family of 4 and... More

Since your visit in May 2014 the motel has changed ownership and we are working hard to make ongoing upgrades and improvements while continuing to provide clean reasonably priced accommodation. The previous owners would be pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We are looking forward to your next visit. More

For a small hotel, it is pretty good. Rates are very reasonable. Room was basic, but very clean and contained everything needed. Beautiful location looking at Kootenay Lake and a short walk to the Ainsworth Hot Springs.

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
