I was recently at the Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort for business and was blown away by the staff. The GM Rod and his wife Jan were more than accommodating and ensured every need i had was met. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was amazing. The waiter Floyd was one of the best servers I have ever...

Ainsworth hasn't changed too much in the past few years. With towel rentals, admission and water your costs add up quickly. It was fairly busy when we were there. Change room cleaning was very time consuming and inconvenient. I had to wait 20 minutes to get in to change into my suit. The front office section is very small and...

It was all good. Not cheap but that didn't seem to bother all the other guests; the place was packed. Next time we won't go on the weekend, we'll go mid-week to avoid some of the pack. Other than the restaurant, the number of people weren't noticeable. Rooms were amazingly quiet - hardly heard a sound and we were on...

Had a great time! Majority of the staff were very pleasant and and friendly. The restaurant could be more inviting for having to make reservations. I would to have loved for there to be a lounge area and open longer. Biggest complaint though would be there needs to be shower doors! What a huge wet mess, completely pointless in why...

Thanks Haley for your feedback. The main reason we require reservations in the restaurant is to ensure all hotel guests get dinner, as other dining options in the vicinity are limited. Our lounge is presently under renovation and when it reopens in April will provide a comfortable, casual space with later hours, a large fireplace and gorgeous lake views. Those...

We are hot springs fans and travel all over Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and now British Columbia looking for a good soak. We spent 2.5 years anticipating Ainsworth Hot Springs and booked it for a romantic Valentines Day celebration. We were so disappointed with the whole experience. The hot springs consist of a large swimming pool that was 99 degrees and...

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience here. Ainsworth is very popular and Valentines weekend is definitely busy. The majority of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, so much so that many have already booked for next year. Guests staying in the hotel have exclusive access to the pools every morning prior to the general public, and most...

I arrived at Ainsworth with my husband and 3 year old son two days after a death in the family. The trip was meant to help heal my broken heart. This sounds dramatic, but the Hot Spring did just that. The hotel rooms were spotless, with a beautiful view of Kootenay Lake. The beds were comfy, and the room was...

Thank you for your visit to Ainsworth and your feedback, which is always appreciated. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the pools, and you'll be pleased to know we are expanding the "hotel guest only" period to a full two hours each morning starting in April. I'm very sorry to hear that your experiences in the restaurant didn't measure up....

The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable, but the highlight of course was the hot springs themselves. The resort features 3 pools. A warm lounging pool which is a comfortable 99°F, a cold water plunge pool at 38°F and a 104°F hot pool much of which is contained in Ainsworth's most distinctive feature a horseshoe shaped set of interconnected caves....

We drove 5 hours to get to the hot springs, only to have our reservation mixed up when we first arrived ( instead of having side by side rooms we had rooms on opposite ends of the floor) now this wouldn't be a problem but when making the reservation I said " I never get time off work so if...

Like going there at least once a year. The hotel is nice,rooms comfy. They remodeled a few years ago. If you stay at the hotel you get unlimited use of the springs. They have a nice restaurant but a little pricey for what you get. We go to either Nelson or just eat breakfast there. The springs are my favorite...

We drove from Nelson to Ainsworth for an afternoon at the hot springs. The drive along the water is beautiful. We went during the week so the pools didn't feel crowded. If you are just dropping by for a soak, I would definitely recommend bringing your own towel, water bottle, and flip flops. The resort rents towels for $2 and...
