This motel has everything you need. The owners are very accommodating and go over and above. They even brought out hockey nets for the kids to use in the parking lot. They put up with a very noisy rambunctious but lovable hockey group. This is the second time we have stayed here and we love it!

Thank you for the kind words and we will always go over and above to make sure our guests are comfortable and have everything they need...fortunately we have children that are the same age who love hockey and we had lots of spare sticks and equipment and a net to provide :) Hope to see you for a 3rd time......

Spent last weekend with a large and spirited group. Rooms were very clean, beds were comfy and kitchens were well stocked. We even used the outdoor barbecues. Staff and owners were very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommend!

This little motel is great! Super clean, little suite with kitchenette. Wifi, free parking and pet friendly rooms. These guys took such good care of our team! We pretty much took over the property this weekend with all our families. I would totally come back and stay here again.

Well...this review is a little past due. OK, my requirements were a little exceptional. That is, I was under some pressure to find a quality location to stay (for my entire family) at a reasonable price. Well guess what? I found it! Not only did all of the staff at Johnny's Motel respond to our requests (in an expedited manner),...

Johnny’s Motel has good, clean, well kept, modern rooms with modest furniture and a basic kitchenette. Reliable Wi-Fi connection. Excellent insulation for sound proofing so rooms are quiet. No noise from traffic or from neighbours. Also, warm in the winter(-35C). I strongly recommend as little contact with the front desk as possible.

I was in Grand Forks for a family event. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I chose Johnny's motel. It is just as the reviews said. Nothing fancy but spotlessly clean and comfortable. Good water pressure in the shower and very quiet at night. Very affordable as well. I would stay again.

I have stayed here intermittently for a number of years. Quite amazingly, the new owners are just as welcoming and friendly as the previous ones. The rooms are clean and comfortable. And the owners are very warm and accommodating. Great place.

Thank you for sharing your great review. We have enjoyed this new adventure and what a beautiful place to live and manage. I feel like we too are on vacation at times having the river out back and enjoying a coffee first thing in the morning with that gorgeous view. Sometimes I even have a deer or two join me...
