I just had a wonderful stay at this resort. I stayed for two wonderful days, enjoying the marvelous hot springs, the awesome food in the restaurant, and the newly renovated room. We ended up getting snowed in because of avalanches closing the highway in both directions and they complimented us the room for that night. Everyone from the resort was...

I had planned to still be there soaking my cares away but because of a string of issues or just plain bad circumstances we came home. We arrived and there were two bus loads of school children in the pools. The kids were normal happy and full of life but many of them were also screaming and creating a general...

We visited this resort for two nights recently. We traveled with another couple for a few days of outdoor fun plus some soaking time. The check-in went well, once the clerk knew we traveled together, she put us in adjoining rooms. The first night was horrible as construction was taking place at 11:30 pm just above our friends room. They...

We have visited a few times now. Usually as a couple. This was our first time bringing our 3 year old. He had a blast! I was a little worried since I have not visited since the cave renos and I was concerned they may have wrecked a good thing. But I think it made it even better. All the...

The springs are always such a treat - if you go during a long weekend/holiday, like anywhere else, it will be busy.... so use your individual judgement. However, whether it's packed or not, it is always so relaxing. I recommend a day pass so you can get out, eat & hydrate, then come back later! Food was delicious. The new...

We stayed here only for 1 night (thank goodness). After checking out their website, it looks like a really nice place, so we decided to make the drive to get there. We booked into their most expensive room as a treat to ourselves. Our room was decent, as it seems to have had a recent renovation and some updates. We...

If this is the best that BC has to offer based on other reviews, I will not be shopping around. The pictures on the website are deceiving. This is not a place for couples to go. If you want someone where inexpensive to take the kids and don't care about relaxing then this is the place. The hot springs was...

I regret to read that you didn't enjoy parts of your stay. It is true that we are a very popular resort for couples and families and we do have busy periods. Hotel guests have exclusive use of the pools for the first two hours daily and as a write this, there are eight people enjoying a relaxing morning soak....

Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort was by far the #1 high point on our 2,000+ km summer trip to Whistler, BC; Jasper, Alta; Canmore, Alta; and Ainsworth Hot Springs, BC. The resort itself is so laid back and comfortable to spend time at. It was the most reasonably priced/superior accommodations I've personally experienced anywhere in the Canadian Rockies, and possibly the...

Having visited for the past several years, things have changed this past year and not for the better. First, the hot springs weren't hot. The main pool was tepid and very cloudy, and so overly full of people, it reminded me of a public swimming pool. The caves we almost too crowded to even use, and they were cooler as...
