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!

We stayed at this motel for a second time this year, while visiting relatives. It truly is the nicest place to stay in Grand Forks, just on the outskirts of town with property running down to the river. This hotel has history, (it is older than many others in town) but it is being lovingly maintained and gradually upgraded by... More

Thank you for the review, we do have a great location, and now we have remodelled all of the rooms, we like to think that we are more unique than the flagged hotel chains, and certainly more reasonably priced. More

We stayed here based on reviews from other travelers. The motel is older and the floor slopes (at least in room 7.) It was clean and had a comfortable bed. The wall mounted air conditioner was noisy so we turned it off--it didn't have a thermostat so it ran all the time. However, after turning it off it was too... More

Thanks for your comments, you should have told us about the air conditioner before you left, and we could have helped you work it, they all have a range of fan speeds, and some of the thermostats are inconspicuous. We added the ceiling fans last year for the light sleepers, and a lot of guests like to set the air... More
