We had a kitchenette room on the town side of the inn. It was a nice room that was comfortable and clean and the fridge had a freezer compartment large enough for blue ice. While having a view of the ocean would have been nice, we didn't want the cost that went with it, so whenever we wanted to see... More

We had a very nice room with a view of the waterfront and the fishing dock. The little extras in the room, like a night light in bath, very nice towels and plenty of coffee, both decaf and regular plus tea was a treat. The breakfast was dry cereal, toast and yogurt... we had plenty of time to go out... More

Something in the room (carpet or air-conditioner?) made my allergies and asthma flare up badly... but I was staying in a pet-friendly room (#121). The view was of the marina and restaurant. The room was quite dated, but had all of the amenities needed; bed, iron, bathroom, fridge, microwave, wifi, and hair dryer. I really disliked how close the toilet... More

The Inn is located on a beautiful seaside walk that meanders along the edge of Sidney for several kilometers. I enjoyed the quiet evenings for restful sleeping. I chose a room with a mini kitchenette as I often like to have a small snack or breakfast without leaving the room. The Inn's location is also close to many great coffeeshops,... More

It was located adjacent to the harbour 2.5 KM walking promenade which was great to enjoy the oceanside every day while getting in some exercise. A number of great restaurants nearby and a grocery store right across the street! Most rooms have a bar fridge and microwave and some have well-outfitted kitchenettes. We took advantage of this and ate in... More

Though not glamorous, the rooms are nicely decorated and outfitted with refrig and microwave oven. The beach walk is right behind and leads to some good restaurant venues. Downtown shops are nearby, as is a supermarket.

We were unable to get onto the Gulf Island ferry home to Salt Spring Island (full!). Rather than get upset, a fellow islander in the next car and I decided to take the last ferry to Sidney and stay overnight there rather than in Tsawwassen and catch the early ferry to Salt Spring. Two stranded friends, we checked into a... More

When I booked with this hotel I was excited due to the excellent reviews it had, nobody I knew had ever stayed here before so we didn't know what to expect besides the great and friendly staff (which they due have). When we drove up the outside looked a bit run down but the inside is beautiful and redone. The... More

Stayed overnight for an early morning flight out of Victoria Airport. The hotel is, perhaps, starting to get a little tired, but is very clean, comfortable and the rate includes parking. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the room was fine. A continental breakfast was included which starts at 6:30am - unless you've got a very early flight... More
