My husband and I stayed again in Room #3 at the Salt Spring Island Inn so as to attend the Saturday morning market on the island. Check-in was very friendly and helpful; our room was just great - gas fireplace, lovely bathroom, good bed and good space. A Keurig coffee maker in the hallway for caffeine lovers. Location is perfect... More

Location could not have been better - right across from the Tuesday market, walking distance to Salt Spring Adventure co and Moby's Pub, Betty's Buns. Best location in Ganges. Other reviewers were disappointed in the street noise but hello, you're on a main road in a tourist location! If you are out exploring this won't be an issue for you.... More

This inn is unfortunately located at the busiest intersection on the island. There is constant traffic of all types including large delivery trucks, motorcycles and automobiles. It does quiet down at night (except for Saturday when there were disturbances of one sort or another all through the night) so some sleep is possible. The room itself was clean, attractive and...

Every review is important to us and, as owner, I feel that an empathetic response is always justified. I was a little disappointed that you gave us a low score for something that we are not able to change. Salt Spring Inn is a 78 year old heritage property that has been completely restored and upgraded to a very modern... More

This is a great location to stay, walking distance to the shops in Ganges and the Tuesday and Saturday market. We found a spot to park right outside of the hotel (no off street parking) and checked in. We were greeted by the owner who then explained about the complimentary coffee and chatted with us about the hotels history. We... More

My partner and I headed to the Salt Spring Inn restaurant the other night for dinner, havig never dined here before. We were early so there were lots of seating choices and we chose to sit on the top-level balcony. The Hostess provided us menus and an explanation of the history contained in them, and our server was prompt and... More

Thank you for your feedback. All reviews are important in that we do have an opportunity to "fine tune" our service and fare. I am particularly interested in the Seafood pasta having too much sauce and I used your feedback in a conversation with our cook from that evening. This item is one of our most popular and many guests... More

The character of this hotel and restaurant is exactly what you are looking for on a vacation. The staff are friendly, the owner greets you, the food is somethign you don't normally make, and the hotel is clean and classy.

This hotel is in a good location for the famous Salt Spring Saturday Market. Parking can be a challenge. Most guests park in a church lot just down the street. The rooms were comfortable and clean. No air conditioning and since it was unusually hot found it a bit noisy with windows open but okay when closed. We ate at... More

We really appreciate your taking time to pass on a review and where we might improve. As our island has become progressively more popular, we do get more early evening traffic. I will post your review to let staff know that their efforts were appreciated. We hope that you will visit us again. Jeremy More

Stayed for 3 nights, wouldn't mind to stay more if I had extra time. The room was very clean, newly renovated. Price per night was OK for SSI, may be a little overpriced I would say. For such a price, they could afford to put a bigger then 19" TV in the room. I like to watch TV before going... More

Thank you for your excellent review and suggestions. We are planning to provide TV's that are larger than our present 22" inch. They are no longer out of the price range. We do hope that you will visit us again on another trip West. More

Such a lovely place! It was obviously renovated to keep the charm of an 'ol time inn'. The attention to detail from the paint colours to an incredibly comfortable bed, from the cleanliness to attentive and friendly staff, and from the delicious food to beautiful hanging flowers make it a place we'd love to come to again and again.

Spotlessly clean,with a very comfortable bed. Friendly staff, with the hotel being close to the centre of the town. I had a very pleasant two day stay. Only negative would be traffic noise, which however quieted at night time.
