We enjoyed a very nice stay at this location. Slightly older property but well maintained. Staff and owner are all delightful. We had the deluxe room (#2) which was very tidy and comfortable bed. The only downside was the street cleaners who woke us up at two am with the noise of their equipment. Not once but at least four... More

Your taking time to provide a review is very much appreciated. Thank you! My apologies for the late night street cleaner noise, it is a "once a year" event that I would do at a more suitable time. We look forward to having you visit us again. Regards, Jeremy More

Upon discovering the pristine bathroom and noticing the plush bath towels, I could tell instantly I would love my stay at this cozy and comfortable inn. The attention to detail is second to none. I expected to have a good stay here. I did not expect to have my expectations exceeded. For the low season rate of $75, I thought... More

Love this quaint little place. The food in the restaurant is very good. The rooms are cozy and are very clean, the shared bathrooms are kept spotless-clean and , the staff very friendly. Love the fact that it is right in the heart is Ganges, so you can walk everywhere.

We enjoy small heritage inns and this one is a gem. I must admit at first I hesitated because of the shared bathrooms but there was no problem at all. We felt very at home and I enjoyed hearing about the reclamation of the building from a dilapidated condition, truly a labour of love. Coming from Vancouver where the heritage... More

Stayed here for one night in March and would definitely recommend it! For only $75/night staying in the heart of Ganges, this was a good deal. The hotel is perfectly located right opposite a bus stop and Ganges Marina. There are a number of restaurants and shops nearby, as well as Centennial Park and the highly recommended Moby's Pub.

A beautiful, small hotel located in the heart of Ganges, the Salt Spring Inn is a great place to stay as well as to dine. The owner's attention to detail is evident throughout.

Located at the centre of Ganges, the Inn is an oasis. Great breakfast - home made granola, great deck for a quiet drink, and Rita; the resident cat. We had a great night's sleep in room 4. Appreciated the lovely renos in the bathroom. And special thanks to Jeremy for the TLC for our bikes.
