The best thing is being in downtown Ganges, across the street from the Saturday market. The worst thing is being in downtown Ganges; it is hard to find a parking spot. The hotel does not have its own parking. I had a tiny room with barely enough space for a chair. Get up early to race for the shower down the hall. I'll try someplace else next time.

This hotel sure exceeded our expectations. During a 2-night stay in September 2010, we were greeted by a super friendly front desk clerk who spent 20 minutes getting us acquainted with the hotel and the surrounding area. Very friendly. The hotel itself was fairly recently renovated with a great restaurant / bar area... perfect for a martini or pint at night, and some breakfast in the morning. The hotel is situated in the heart of Ganges.

Two things I didn't like too much about the hotel. First, the bathroom are shared. You have to leave your room and cross the hall to use the rest room (sucks at night) and there is no parking.

I am a travel professional and have stayed in many hotels and B&B's. The Salt Spring Inn is a lovely combination of both because they offer a full service restaurant serving breakfast , lunch and dinner along with the friendly vibe of a B&B.

The rooms are super clean. I stayed in a room with a shared bath which was across the hall from my room - much like home.

Great location centrally located in the heart of downtown Ganges.

The food is fresh and tasty - The owners and staff are professional and super friendly.
Two thumbs up!

Very conveniently centrally located in Ganges, steps away from the saturday farmers market, all cafes, restaurants and shops, etc. Seven rooms above a family restaurant & bar, they have been remodeled in recent years to a high and historically respectful standard. Despite the location we had no complaints about the noise, actually found it to be very quiet. Rooms are small and without a lot of amenities, just a small flat screen TV, sink and a chair in ours, no phones, tables or hanging closets, etc. but it was very clean, much more tastefully decorated than most of the B&B options (which are rather Kountry Komfort in their decor). Service was small and friendly. Sharing a bathroom wasn't the drag i expected - they were super clean, and in a three day stay with all rooms sold out, i hardly even saw another guest at all. i'd happily stay here again. The restaurant food was was totally competent if not exceptional, and obviously very convenient. Originally envisioned staying at a B&B but doubt we would have as good an experience as we had here.

Highly recommend the Salt Spring Inn. VERY reasonable rooms and everything has been recently redone and is very excellent condition. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. We stayed in one of their smallest rooms, granted its small but was very clean and well designed w/small plasma t.v. mounted on the wall. The shared bathrooms are also very well kept and had no issues. The Inn is very small only 7 rooms and the front rooms that overlook water have bathrooms. In booking this room we found everything we were looking for; clean, nice, inviting good location and of course quite reasonable - would return in heartbeat. Oh and Jeremy the owner is great along with Rita! If you're on a second honey moon or on extended stay for 3-4 days you'll probably want something with a little more space. Overall Inn is a great change from the A-typical hotel room.
