When my boyfriend and I first arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the hotel owner Jeremy on a first name basis as if we were old friends. He proceeded to bring our beloved road bikes to his own personal locked up shop to ensure their safety, and avoid them crowding us in our hotel room. My boyfriend was...

Thank you Kari, your reinforcement of our "Island service" is really what drives us to uphold that standard. I hope that the rest of your bicycle adventure was equally as comfortable as the Salt Spring portion. Jeremy

Definitely the most hospitable hotel I have ever been to. Jeremy, the owner, literally drove 30 kms after we forgot some goat cheese in his fridge. We had biked to Fulford and couldn't come back as we would have missed our ferry. The Inn is well kept and run. You can definitely tell he sincerely cares about his business as...

We had the pleasure of dining at the Salt Spring Inn last week. The food was excellent and the staff, as busy as they were, were very friendly and efficient. While parked in town later, my car would not start! I had my elderly mother with me, and being from out of province, did not know a soul. Off to...

Loved your review title :) ! Thank you, Room 6 is by far our best seller for the same reason that a popular heritage hotel in Vancouver find's their "Closet rooms". The price leaves a few dollars for that special "nightcap"! We hope to see you again and I'm sure you will enjoy a queen room. Regards, Jeremy

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...

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.

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...

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...

Thank you for your feedback. All reviews are important in that we do have an opportunity to "fine tune" our service and fare.
