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...

We stayed an EXTRA 2 days on our vacation in August - enjoyed the pool and bicycling and walks downtown. Next time we will center here and do day trips. Try to book a suite (1,2 bedroom) rather than a room; for the few dollars more you get a much bigger room. While here we saw a couple large groups...

We've been staying at this motel for a number of years while visiting family in Grand Forks. I have to say that the motel has not been the same since former owners Clive and Nicky have moved on and there are new owners. It's more difficult to book because the phone is not always answered (although we did get a...

We are sorry that your stay wasn't as great as it was with the previous owners. Being that we just bought the place, it takes time to make it that much more. Usually if the phone is not answered, it is because our management is out doing maintenance on the large property but we do return the calls as you...

Great spot, my first time in Grand Forks and I couldn't have picked a better spot. The room is a great size with twins in each. Kitchen was clean and set up nicely once I arrived. I called last night to see if I could get an earlier check-in and they had my room ready for Noon! I am glad...

I have stayed at Johnny's Motel a few times whilst in Grand Forks for work. Rooms are clean, staff super friendly and helpful. Backs onto Granby River. Don't be surprised to see deer grazing outside your patio door. Some suites have full kitchen.
