Ainsworth Motel

Wow, our choice of motel was perfect, the new owners Glen and Elaine are wonderful. We stayed in the family suite which had tons of room for the 4 of us. The room was very clean, the kitchen came fully equipped, the beds were comfy and the view was amazing! They have a BBQ on site which we used daily!! I would highly recommend this hotel for couples or families, it is the best place to stay when visiting the Hot Springs or travelling through the area. Each year we make a trip to the Hot Springs and we'll definitely stay at this motel again on our next visit to Ainsworth.

I made reservations about 2 months ago and talk to a very nice lady, upon on our arrival we had found out that these people had just bought the place 4 days before we arrived. These are the nicest folks they were so hospitable and very friendly.
The room was nice and the view was awesome. I would and will be staying there again. It was a very nice place for the price of the rooms and with in walking distance to the hot springs.

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.

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.
