“Great host, Accommodated bike tour very well”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Our bike club of about 15 people stayed one night on a Silver Triangle tour. The owner was super accommodating, setting aside a bike lockup area in his garage, supplying rags for clean-up, extra toaster oven we needed for breakfast for 15 people, etc.

The motel is located right on the highway.

Room #8 is actually a separate building. It has a full kitchen with full size fridge, stove with oven, microwave, coffee maker etc. We prepared breakfast for 15 hungry cyclists quite handily in it.

Next door is the Ainsworth Hot Springs which is a great place to soak away 100 km worth of aching legs (not cheap at $12 but worth it for the funkiness factor).
The view from the lawn / deck is superb, up and down Kootenay Lake.

Check-In: the owner was great, got us all set up with bike lock-up, rags for cleaning up, etc.

Noise: quiet on a June night, traffic going by on busy road might be heavier in the peak summer months.

Bathroom was a little bit funky, had been re-partitioned, fixtures a little aging but quite workable. The owner does a great job keeping the plumbing working: apparently with all the minerals in the water in Ainsworth this is no easy task.

Amenities ...
Internet - worked well enough for a hotel.
Coffee maker
Fridge - full size
TV channels - TV was provided, we did not use.

Breakfast NA did it ourselves

Check-Out: our host was great, took group photo, checked individuals for forgotten keys.

On our recent holiday we wanted to ride our bike around the Kaslo to New Denver loop so we decided to stay at the Ainsworth Motel, Glenn was a great host and very helpful, they have done a lot of work around the motel to make people's stay warm and comfortable. Sitting out in the lawn chairs in the evening overlooking the lake was awesome. If you are ever up in the Ainsworth area and need a place to stay I would recommend this motel, great value.

Ainsworth Motel is located beautifully close to the famous Ainsworth Hot Springs, overlooking the scenic Kootenay Lake. My wife and I have stayed here for a couple of nights during the May long weekend. We have booked the unit 6 with a queen size bed, kichinette and a commanding view over the lake. Our stay was great, enjoying a spotless room, a large bathroom and all the other facilities that made us happy. A very heartfelt thank-you goes to Glen and Elaine, the owner of Ainsworth Motel, who make us feel valued and appreciated.
