Reviewed 7 June 2011

I want to love this motel but can't, yet. What is great:(1) location within walking distance to lake, river and canyon walks and the charming town center. (2) grass and treed inner court yard with out door patios for each unit and a shared BBQ. (3) tons of towels and extras for beach and hot springs. (4) very close trip to Ainsworth hot springs and far better accommodation than anything Ainsworth has to offer. (5) lovely family hosts who are very helpful, even providing us with an old ski pole to make a dog tether from, and responsive to each request or query. (6) quiet location, even the three units on the highway side because the Kaslo traffic is very minimal. (7) mountain and glacier views from the courtyard are stunning. (8) spacious units. (9) welcome pets with rational rules for leashing and picking up after them. (10) relatively good kitchen facility, nice pantry. (11) Fun exterior colours on every unit and a well laid out arrangement of cabins, drive up motel units, and one set of upper floor with balcony rooms. What keeps me from being in love: (1) kitchen appliances and unit's walls need a good scrub down. Examples include ... the appliances are dreadfully greasy and while I don't object to cleaning up after my own cooking, I do object to cleaning up after previous, numerous others. Walls in bedroom are dirty, with black hand prints. To diminish the "uck" factor, I washed the top of the wainscot and bedside lamp and wall switch myself. (2) bathrooms in need of major upgrades, especially new higher draw fans and larger windows. Tin roofed cabins are hard to keep humidity free. After your bath or shower, even with fan on and window open, the walls and ceilings are dripping with humidity and the water damage from this ongoing problem is evident in the paint peeling away, grout and wood moulding mildew, and rusting metal. (3) some hooks at entrance, hall, bath and bedroom would be much appreciated. There is minimal furniture (which is fine) to set belongings down on, and only a small closet in the bedroom, but otherwise no where to hang a bag, jacket, or satchel. (4) an outdoor bin for dog waste. After bagging, we'd plan a walk to the park to deposit since one doesn't want to keep feces inside. One day the cleaning lady returned our bag (left outside the unit door) to our kitchen, thoughtfully thinking we'd forgotten something outside. Ooops! (5) a lamp shade on the light over the bed - the bare bulb feels a bit prison cell like (and is impossible to read comfortably under).

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin on the side street.

We stayed for 2 nights and were very impressed with how homey this place felt!! We stayed in suite 9 that had 2 bedrooms, a large bathroom, a living room and fully functional kitchen (with everything you could possibly need!). I was leery about how cheap it was compared to other hotel/motels in the area but was not at all disappointed -- it was spotless and comfy and was in a great little town where there was only a short walk to down town, the beach and a kids play ground. I wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely stay there again!

We spent 2 night at the motel (not our first time) but we wre impressed enough that it warrents letting others know. Nothing fancy but everything you could want...down to wine glasses! The unit we had was fully equiped with a kitchen, sitting/eating area...nice size bedroom and full bath...all for about $68.00. Very clean...hospitabily hosts...close to downtown...quiet and cute! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a get-a-way!
