Nice staff and clean smelling *but*... This place had grubby looking carpets and the worst mattress I've ever tried to sleep on. No joke. It was ancient, creaky, uneven and felt like there were broken springs. I couldn't wait to get out and go home after my 5 hours of poor broken sleep. I might have slept on the floor...

We stayed here in march for one night. It was very well priced. The hotel is still under renovation with no restaurant or bar open. The main part of the hotel is closed but we stayed in the "motel" style side. Our room was ground floor with direct access from outside. Each room facing the harbour had a balcony or...

We booked a room over looking the Harbour, which had a great view. The room was a good size with a fireplace. The TV was on the small size and sitting on the dresser rather than wall mounted, not ideal, but okay. Bathroom was a good size, tub a bit smaller There also was a mini fridge in the room....

When we told friends we were staying on Salt Spring Island, we were told to stay here. It was obviously once a wonderful hotel that gave travellers and excellent experience. Unfortunately, it is now a sad, beaten up accommodation with no money offered for repairs or maintenance. When I called to make a booking I was assured that the room...

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was okay. It was clean enough, but room service didn't clean our room, make the bed or replace any of the supplies (soap, coffee or towels). Fair enough. I guess they didn't want a tip.

This is a down-and-out hotel in a decent location. There was no air conditioning in our room. The window had no screen so we took our chances on a bug free night to cool down the room. The promised garden walk is a complete bust. There is no restaurant but the pub across the street was fantastic.

Booked a two nite stay with a coupon, decided to pay an extra 30$ a nite and got the upgrade. Very happy we did. It was a lovely large honeymoon suite with a corner jetted tub for two. We also had a cozy ocean view deck with a gas fireplace although we never used it. As the restaurant was closed...

While the room was good and the reception staff super, a closed restaurant and no-protein continental breakfast were real negatives, disappointing. The receptionist was very friendly and incredibly helpful (super recommendations for dinner). While the front stairs to the entrance, and then the stairs up to the room were daunting with luggage, apparently there is a rear entrance without stairs....

We booked an island daily deal to stay here and were very disappointed. The restaurant was closed, the hotel entrance had a big leak in the ceiling water all over the floor and a bucket, our room was musty and the bathroom had silverfish in it. I would also not recommend this hotel to anyone with limited mobility. It is...

We booked this hotel (motel) thru Island Daily Deals $149 plus tax. It sounded like a great deal until we arrived at the tired, run down accommodation. It was a wet weekend and we should have known by the water dripping into the bucket in foyer this tired hotel had gone years without any $$$ being reinvested. The room my...
