The beautiful views are self explanatory... the hosts Glenn and Debbie are gracious, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about the area... A short walk to the Ainsworth Hot Springs that is an amazing treat to the body and soul after spending the day on the countless (and very vertical) hiking trails. And about the hiking trails!!! --- Every bend gives the...

Stay here, can't go wrong. This is a small motel, but it is probably one of the best accommodation in all of B.C. For $80 per night, you get a room that is clean, modern, well stocked, and equipped with a full kitchen. The owners give you complimentary towels for the Hot Spring, which would have cost $2 at the...

My wife and I have visited Ainsworth Motel several times, each time having a wonderful experience. All the units have commanding views over Kootenay Lake; they are large, spotless and equipped with utensils to prepare yourself light meals.

Was hoping for a little more. Basic rooms but clean and quiet. Beds were the worst I've slept on in awhile. Good flat screen TV and selection, WiFi weak. Nice deck outside each room, pet friendly with nice lawn area for relaxing. Get new beds and I will return.

We stayed April 1-4th of this year. Got to meet the owners who were very nice people and they gave us many hiking tips and places to visit like Kaslo.

Absolutely loved our stay at Ainsworth Motel. We stayed in the cabin plenty of room. Full kitchen loved it. Very clean. It's a great place to stay because there's so many places around to see. Here are a few photos of few of the sights. Too many pictures to post. You could take a photo every 3 minutes here.

Exactly as described, cute and quaint, wonderful owners and great view of the lake right outside your door. We spent time on the chairs taking in the view of the lake, Quick walk to the hotsprings can't beat the value thanks for a great stay we'll be back :) loved the small touches in the room as well

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We won the 2016 Travellers Choice Award for Canada under the Budget category. We are still working hard at making updates. 8 beds were replaced last spring with top of the line memory foam and gel beds. Have 3 select rooms that are pet friendly. Located in beautiful Ainsworth Hot Springs, BC, Canada, just a 2 minute walk to the relaxing naturally hot pools. Ainsworth Motel offers a unique country setting with clean, quiet and comfortable rooms at lowest prices in town! We have queen bed rooms with kitchenette units, Queen and Double bed with kitchenettes, as well as a large fully furnished family unit(sleeps up to 6-8) with complete kitchen facilities & separate bedroom, all with a breathtaking view of beautiful Kootenay Lake and its surrounding mountains. We offer complimentary coffee, tea, makeup wipes, shampoo, conditioner, soap, microwave, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, a front deck and lawn area complete with 2 BBQ's and picnic tables all at an affordable price. Family friendly with lawn games, books and board games to entertain. Just a reminder that we are in the middle of the mountains and the only internet option is Satellite. Signal comes from Seattle and weather and how many people are on the system affect your connection. The town and the resort (40 plus rooms)are on this system. We have no control if people are skyping, downloading or watching movies. These activities uses up bandwidth that take away from other uses. Thank you ... more   less
