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

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

The Robinson's are just fabulous, we were there for my 50 year school reunion, and were treated like family. We had a king facing the river and everything was very clean, and we were happy to have stayed there 2 nights, the pool was great, it was outdoors, and on a hot day was great to cool off without it...

We had so many reunions this year it was great fun, but the summer months fill up really fast quite often a year in advance so book ahead. We have four king beds now, three of which have car ports. Hope to see you again soon. More

We stayed one night on our way to the coast. We chose the town because it was roughly half way and we chose Johnny's because of the trip reviews. The room was clean and ideal for a good night's sleep. They were very accommodating when it looked like we would arrive late. Johnny's is now on our for sure stay... More

Located just past the river in the east side of town along Hwy 3, this old motel is clean, neat and outfitted with great beds and quiet rooms. The back of the property is lawn right next to the river. People were enjoying the picnic tables and barbecue grills that are available at dinner time. It is a very relaxed... More

We had never been in Grand Forks before and chose Johnny's from Tripadvisor recommends. It is motel but so sweet! and the owners/hosts are very welcoming and delightful.

We appreciate your comments, and are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We do have several units with patio doors, but room 6 is slightly smaller than the rest, but tends to be popular as it is the only unit with a carport as well as a patio door. More
