Once again, terrific! We love it here. We had thought we might go to a different city next year but we know we just won't duplicate this. Should be here again next year. We felt sad to see Clive and Niki go but hope it will be great next year with Daniel. We liked what we saw. They are so... More

This is a quaint little motel set on the river. It is very well kept, and the people that run it are friendly and concerned that you have a good stay. The rooms have been updated and the property is well cared for. Would definitely stay there again..

We were looking for a room for the night and were not disappointed when we checked in at Johnny's. Very personable & friendly owner checked us in, let us check out the room and it was more than we could have hoped for for the price! Although we couldn't make use of the outdoors because of rain it was nice... More

We were impressed with the helpfulness of the owner when calling to make a reservation. And very happy to be offered a carport for our motorcycle. It's rare to stay in such a well equipped room and have a king sized bed for under $100. It was lovely to sit at the picnic table out back overlooking the river with... More

Last year we tried to book at Johnnys because the reviews were so great. Sadly it was booked up well in advance. I couldn't believe that a "motel" would be worthy of such impressive reviews. Lucky for us, Johnnys had a king room available for us on a last minute decision to ride our bikes from the coast to GFs... More

Remember those classic road side "Auto-courts" of the 1950s. I always wanted to park my car in the car port of one of those places but was afraid of the quality of the accommodations. Well, Johnny's is the place to park your car. After we were checked in by the most friendly and helpful desk person we drove right into... More

We keep coming back expecting the same package of special touches as I've detailed in past reviews, so imagine our delight to experience new goodness on our return. This year the experience was enhanced by service. When I called to book they didn't have the full kitchen two-room suite available. The put us into a two-room suite that didn't have... More

This is how it's done! The owners of this place just set the bar for customer service in the accommodation world. My wife and I were blown away. Rooms are modern, clean and the beds are really comfortable. The price can't be beat. By far the best place to stay in Grand Forks. (Loved it)

Johnny's was a great holiday destination for two nights this summer. It is very clean and so relaxing. A short walk to downtown where you can pick up any groceries needed for bbqing out by the river. The pool is a great way to cool down after a hot day! We will be back!
