Room was great with a nice little kichenette - Rm #16. Nicely updated room with 2 Queen Beds and separate room with 2 New TV's - perfect! Free Wifi which always worked .Beds and Bedding were very comfy! If you're looking for a cozy little hotel setting this would be recommended for sure. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks!...

Great little motel with a back door leading to a picnic area and down to the river. I had breakfast with the deer both mornings and enjoyed a beautiful, quiet stay in the evenings. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Johnny's Motel for one night on our way back to Vancouver. The staff is very nice, the place is clean, you'll find a nice back door of your room with a direct view on the river (good for a glas of wine after a day of hiking). The room was clean and affordable. Please stay at Johnny's... More

Impressive. You can park right infront, walk across the bridge to town and sit on your back porch along the river looking over to town. I was greeted by deer at my front step and backyard! The room has a huge flatscreen, kitchenette, large bathroom. Very clean and appears to be newly renovated. I wasn't expecting such a large room!!... More

Stayed here on our way to our holiday in the Kootenay region. It was a pleasant surprise as the facilities provided in our unit surpassed our expectations. Well laid out kitchenette/breakfast nook meant that we could enjoy a relaxing breakfast without going out. Located right on Hwy 3 meant it was easy to find and backing onto the Kettle River... More

Located on the banks of the river with tables to allow enjoyment of the scenery. About 1/2 of the rooms have covered parking ( free). Only an easy 5 minute walk to food stores/downtown, Good facilities including microwave/fridge /free WiFi Motorcycle friendly ( with a free beer if on a m/cycle!)

I will definitely not recommend this hotel. Although the rooms were clean, the swimming pool's heating was off. We booked this motel because we want to use the pool for the grand children. We ended up leaving a day earlier and feel we waist our money. The furniture around the swimming pool was dirty. The furniture on the grass were... More

Our family has been traveling this route for about 40 years, and fell in love with this place. We would originally stop when the children were young, so they could enjoy the swimming pool, while the driver got some "quiet time" sitting out the back at a picnic table, enjoying the sound of the river. On work trips, owners were... More

The motel was a cool place, nostalgic,great parking for the hot rods we had there for a show. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and eating places and a couple of good pubs were nearby. It's on the river with tables and chairs on the lawn for relaxing.Unfortunately the fires in the area were bad when we were there so... More
