There are a few things that boast Johnny's Motel above it's average rating. The rooms are older and plain but keep very clean. The floor is creaky, and the bathroom is so small that the wash basin is placed in the sleeping room and the air conditioner is noisy. That being said I would stay there again, as the beds... More

Perfect spot, tons of wildlife, clean, quiet and great beach at the river. Had a great time and can't wait to come back. Especially the dog! They just added a kids playground and they have great floaties for the kids in the pool.

We rolled into Grand Forks cranky and tired. Travelling from Campbell River to Grand Forks with kids and babies really took a toll on us. This place restored our sanity. The pool was coldish but refreshing and we all got to enjoy it after our brutally long drive. The room was clean and had a great big screen TV and... More

We had a great stay here on our way to the Kootenays. Conveniently located right off the highway, which I thought might be noisy but wasn't too bad. Clean and comfortable room, decent kitchen amenities. The "backyard" on the river was a lovely place to relax with a beverage after a long drive. And they had an outdoor pool!

We stay here annually on our way to Creston. It is a very nice place to stay with reasonable prices. Its a short walk to town centre also. You can park your vehicle right at the front door and the rooms are all ground level. Most rooms have a patio door facing the river with pic nic tables and some... More

Johnny's Motel has been just across the bridge, and fronting on the Grandby River, forever. A few years ago it came under new ownership. The new owners have done a great job updating the old place with fresh, new, modern finishing. It is clean and convenient.

We love this place! Very clean, reasonably priced motel with a variety of units for your stay. Right off the Hwy you can find a quiet sleep with your own carport and backyard that features a cool, lazy river with small beach area. If you'd rather swim in a pool there's one out front that's just fine. Friendly people and... More

Great value. Simple, convenient and clean motel. Excellent location with back door to small patio by the River. Very relaxing. You can swim in the river too! Some rooms have car ports available which is a nice option for bikes or convertibles. Quick check in with friendly staff. Omega Restaurant across the street has good dinner and breakfast.

Hwy 3 in Grand Forks is reminisent of route 66 in AZ. Well, except for the large beautiful trees here (few in AZ); and the large swim-able river just outside your door. Highway 3 runs down the main street of town, and is lined with motels of Motor Court vintage. Others are ok, Johnny's is the best of the bunch.... More
