The grounds and outside of the motel are very attractive, but the inside not so much. When we arrived, there was a strong odor in our room (chemical spray? Comet?) and we (and noted others) had to leave our door open for a while to air it out. The room is on the small side, outdated, somewhat dingy and the...

Thank you for taking time to review. We took time to investigate the smell and we determined that we recently replaced the beds and the scotchgard was likely the smell you describe. This will decrease in time. While we are continually updating décor and amenities we did find the ceiling bulbs could be brighter in that room and promptly changed...

Though an older facility, the place is well appointed and the service is tremendous. Glen is exceptionally helpful and will stop at nothing to ensure your stay is the best it can be. Kitchenettes are great and the full cabin facility is nothing short of wonderful, Ideal for group gatherings such as ours. Some upkeep is needed in a couple...

The beautiful views are self explanatory... the hosts Glenn and Debbie are gracious, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about the area...

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...

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
