We (2 couples) recently did a road trip to Ainsworth Hotsprings in the Kootenays just out of Nelson BC. Sarah called ahead and booked two rooms at the Ainsworth Motel. The price was quite reasonable and we are always a little cognizant of that when we book an unknown accommodation. When we arrived, we met a very well groomed, pleasant but professional man who checked us in and went over the rules in a fashion that was upfront and we were not concerned with any of them. We were actually comforted by the thought that we knew we would have a good night's rest as he seemed to run a clean, no BS kinda' motel. We got to our rooms and found them to be very clean and well maintained, very adequate in size with large washrooms and both with kitchen units. We went to the hotsprings about 30 metres away and enjoyed ourself for a few hours. Came back to the hotel for a nightcap about 9:30. Our door was open and he was doing his evening rounds and asked if everything was okay or if we needed anything. We exchanged conversation for over half an hour and he bid us good night. We had a very restful sleep, all amenities worked well and I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone planning a trip to this area. I should mention that there are only him and his wife that own the motel and work there. I believe there are about 7 rooms with 2 family style cabins overlooking Kootenay lake. A gorgeous setting. I would recommend booking ahead.
