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

We had trouble finding Johnny's Motel using some of the map apps coming from US 395. Johnny's is west of Industrial Avenue before you cross the river into the main part of Grand Forks. It was raining when we got there so I noticed that most of the units have carports. Alas, no carport for us, but we did get... More

This motel turned out to be a great place to stay. Check in was great. Staff were friendly, room was very clean and kept up. Motels like this cater to a wide variety of clients, and there are always potential clashes of desires. Some are vacationers who want to sleep, some are partiers, some are workers. Some treat facilities with... More

Chose this location as it was rated #1 of Grand Forks Motels, and it did not disappoint. Very clean. Bed very comfortable with nice linens. Bath towels were thick and absorbent (recently stayed at a 4 star Hotel that had exceptionally nice looking towels, but they had little absorbency) Overall a great stay at a reasonable price. Definitely recommend for... More

What a surprise this lil place is! Clean, comfortable super friendly staff and a view to die for! I didn't want to leave. Close to everything you could walk to town to eat and shop or just stay in and cook in your lil kitchenette or grill outside! forget about it, it just doesn't get any better.

Nice little Motel with clean rooms and soft beds. I had a sliding door room that opened to a nice grassy area top of the river. Very nice and quiet despite the highway being close. BBQ's all ready to be used and picnic tables too!.Awesome friendly staff too!

We really enjoyed this Motel. We were on our way to Cranbrook and I had researched towns I thought I would enjoy staying along the way. Grand Forks came up and looking for accommodations, Johnny's was highly recommended so I prebooked online. I have to say, checking in was very easy. The staff was really efficient and accommodating. He made... More

Johnny's is an older motel, lovingly maintained, impeccably clean. The beds are comfortable with lamps on each side and room to move around the bed, the bathroom is large (for a motel) and nicely done. There is a back door leading to a grassy area and the river. Although it's next to the highway, it's far enough that there is... More
