“Simplicity”
Reviewed February 18, 2008

This is not fancy - but very simple , and extremely clean.
The view is beautiful, and the room very cozy. We really appreciated the friendliness of the owners, Linda and Bob.
The last thing I saw as we left, was Linda waving goodbye to us. It left me with a very good feeling - as these are folks who don't even know us.
The motel is up for sale, and I only hope that the next owners are able to carry on the same wonderful feel for such a beautiful location. The Munson's have done a great job.
I do not recommend eating at the Ainsworth Hotel next door. Over priced, and not very friendly. Down the road at JB's in Woodsbury is very nice. Great fish n' chips, as well as friendly service.
The Hot Spring feel wonderful, but if you want a friendly meal, and a drink that's not watered down, go down the road to JB's.

  • Liked — Management and cleanliness.

Reviewed August 2, 2007

When I arrived at this motel, I was both delighted and thrilled to see the quaint yet spotless style. It sits on a small hill overlooking the gorgeous Kootenay Lake. The rooms are CLEAN and reasonable and the mattress was newer and firm the pillows shredded form and comfortable. There are both single and two bedroom rooms and all the rooms have a decent view of the lake.

All the rooms have a small kitchenette, with pots and pans and silverware and dishes. There is a coffee maker with decent stock coffee and microwave and refrigerator. There is a restaurant and bar at the Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort, but I didn't try the food.

The property has a wonderful communal BBQ and picnic tables and chairs. As far as I was concerned this was a perfect motel for the experience I desired. No frills, just lovely view, quiet and clean.

The driveway to the rooms is dirt.

  • Liked — Gorgeous view, clean and well kept
  • Disliked — the driveway is tight off the Hwy 3a and dirt
  • Stayed July 2007, traveled solo
