Stayed for one night at this motel because it was close to the hot springs and they had a vacant room. The room was clean and the timing was perfect. A little expensive for such an old room but the view was amazing. There was a little kitchen which we did not use but will next time. The room also... More

We stayed here in the family unit (Myself, my mom and my 3 children aged 3, 6 and 8) July 29 and 30th 2014. We were greeted in a very friendly manner, the room was very clean and the views spectacular. Just a short 3 minute walk to the hot springs. Owners asked if we needed anything, supplied us with...

“Nothing to complain about” We stayed at this place for one night during our road trip through BC. It is very simple and small, yet very clean and tidy place. The room was spacious and clean, there was a small kitchenette, where we could prepare small meals if we had to. The view in front of the motel is spectacular,... More

My husband and I take a motor cycle trip every summer and for the past 7 years we have always ensured that we include a stop over at the Ainsworth Motel. We love the area for bike riding, however, the reason we keep coming back to the Ainsworth Motel is that fact that it is run by Glen and Elaine... More

Ainsworth Motel is situated next door to the hot pool complex. The motel management is very friendly and helpful and the rooms large, comfortable and very clean. THE VIEW FROM OUR ROOM WAS SPECTACULAR. (See Photo) The cost of our room was £43.65 per night. All the facilities we expect from a quality room were present.

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

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
