If you love motorcycle touring Johnny's is a must see destination! The motel is very well cared for, on a beautiful location right on the river, has carports to park your bike under and the English owners add a real touch of class. I have rode most of the great motorcycle roads in North America ( have rode more than 15,000 km by the end of May this season) and not stayed at a better Motel for motorcycling. It's worth the ride just to spend some time at Johnny's!

Appreciate your comments. We have had quite a few more motorcycles pass through this year, and yes the carports are very popular but only seven units have them, so please book in advance when you can as we hate turning people away, and we do have a very lenient cancelations policy. Thanks.

My son's and I like to do an annual Golf Trip... We've done various locations in BC and Washington State. Usually 1 week... and we have not duplicated... until this year.
We started planning and after a great deal of discussion the question was posed " Why don't we just go back to Johnny's and do last year all over?" It was a unanimous YES!
Right from check in , through our entire stay, the staff of Johnny's couldn't be any friendlier or accommodating. The Motel is well maintained, The location by the river makes it so relaxing, the Barbecues are plentiful and all tools are supplied...The pool is clean and refreshing. Price and value is surprising... We can't wait for our trip this year, and Johnny's is a big part of why its Kootenay Golf for us again this year!.... and it certainly won't be the last time either!

Room Tip: They're all good!

This place was pretty good. It was very clean and good value. I went for a school trip and found that the hotel was the best part. I have to make a 200 character minimum but I don't really know what else to say.

I really like Johnny's Motel in Grand Forks. It is an older style motel that has been completely renovated and modernized. The location next to the river is a plus with outside tables and BBQ's available for those who'd like a little more time to enjoy the picturesque setting.

What really sets Johnny's apart though is the fantastic customer service. On a recent trip helping a friend move we arrived at Johnny's at around 10:45 only to find the office had closed at 10:00. While debating what to do the office light came on and one of the owners, Clive came to the door to say that he had been preparing for bed when he heard us pull in. He quickly found us an available room and got us checked in and our vehicles (including the large moving truck) parked.

We left again early the next morning, but I could not have been happier with the kind and cheerful service.

We do usually close around 10pm, unless we know you are en route, and for late arrivals we make special arrangements. Pleased that we could accommodate you.

We were road tripping from Colorado to Whistler and Vancouver and crossed the border and decided on staying a night in a bed instead of our car and we decided on Johnnys motel. It was perfect, great hosts, perfect clean room and bed and definitely what we needed after 20 hours of driving. I'm originally from England and was great to speak to a fellow Brit (Clive who owns/runs the place) who couldn't do enough to help us and he had to problems with us staying for just one night. If we're ever on another road trip that way, we won't hesitate to stay there again.

I have stopped at Johnny's for the night every year the last few years, this time though I decided to spend the week.

Clive and Nicky are wonderful hosts, they have amazing work ethic and you see it in the up keep of the motel, they treat the folks (customers) with smiles and warmth. Rooms are nicely appointed and if you are staying a spell like I did they have a everything that is needed so you don't need to spend a fortunate on dinning out,

Your room has a door that opens up to the grass area and river with deer hanging out ...just awesome.

Well done, old fashion service with a smile.

due to the increasing popularity of this little gem, try to book ahead

Another successful annual reunion at Johnny's. Everything was superb!
We feel like we are staying with friends.
They do a lot of extras for us and couldn't be more helpful.
the beds are super comfortable and its so quiet even though its just off Hwy.#3.
we look forward to going back again next year.
