Very welcoming place to stay in the heart of Ganges. Excellent restaurant downstairs. Packed on a Monday night! But didn't wait too long for food, long enough that it was made fresh. We were pleasantly surprised that for that value, the room was very comfortable. Because it is so cost effective were were expecting less. Albeit the bathroom shower is... More

Thank you Andrea for passing on your review; very valuable. As our 75 year heritage location is in the heart of Ganges we are certainly subject to some traffic noise, mainly in Summer. We are planning an additional layer of windows soon and hope that it will lessen the inpact of traffic passing by. We do hope that you will... More

Salt Spring Island and specifically the Salt Spring Inn were the highlights of our B.C. trip. If you are visiting Vancouver or Victoria do not miss a side trip to Salt Spring, even if just for a day or two. The ferry ride alone through the Gulf Islands is a great tourist attraction. We cannot imagine staying in a nicer... More

We were in Ganges for an evening event of the always excellent Salt Spring Forum. So, our accommodation needs were simple: clean, quiet, comfortable and affordable. Salt Spring Inn offered that and more, including friendly service, help with luggage, included internet service and a handy single-serve coffee brewer available anytime. Even the request for a late night glass of milk... More

Just came back from a two night stay. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Restaurant down stairs had great food. The Inn just has a very warming comfortable feeling about it, and a lot of character. Loved it so much we've decided to return back in spring. Thanks! From Martin and Robyn

I stayed in room 7 and this room has everything a solo traveler would need. It was clean. The Queen sized bed was comfortable. There was WiFi. The window is screened and can open. The location doesn't get any better, especially if you're a walk-on ferry visitor given that it's right in the middle of the village with the very... More

We were on a family boat cruise to celebrate our Mom's 80th birthday. We needed 3 hotel rooms for those not staying on the boat. We chose Salt Spring Inn because of its close location to the harbor; it is about a block away. The rooms were small and not air conditioned, which was a bit of problem for a... More

Thank you for taking time to provide a review. I completely agree that on those hot days every Summer our rooms take time to be cooled off by the ocean breezes. We hope that you will consider us again and that the heat is more subdued. More

Our stay at the Salt Spring Inn started out great. We were stranded after missing the last ferry (be sure to read the ferry timetable carefully!) and we were glad to find a room available. We were given a discount as this was their last room available. The desk clerk, Maddie, was warm and friendly. We were in the last... More

We always welcome reviews as our record shows. I agree that I was less than receptive to the complaint about an uncomfortable bed. We had kindly recognized the financial stress of missing a homebound ferry and we provided our only available room at substantially discounted rate. We did explain that the room has one bed and accordingly we also provided... More

Hello. The Salt Spring Inn restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of Ganges and is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We travel to SSI quite often from Vancouver Island and the first place we visit for breakfast is the restaurant at the Salt Spring Inn.

I think the title line says it all. The chill was even greater when the server basically couldn't care less. An eatery that will deliver a $24. entree and blithely dismiss the fact that almost everything on the plate was barely above room temperature just doesn't cut it. I don't know what is more intolerable the uncaring attitude of the... More
