This is a nice quaint waterfront hotel that has the feel of warmth and cozy rooms. The beds are comfy and they offer a nice breakfast. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that they had a fair going on and we walked through the town viewing many kiosks and venues. We also purchased souvenirs and treasures to take home...

We stayed here for 2 nights last August and it was quite lovely. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Walking distance to attractions and restaurants. We requested an Ocean view room and the view was lovely. However, our room also backed onto the entrance to the pub/restaurant behind the hotel. The customers coming and going weren't a problem at all....

This is a very nice, clean and well located inn. We were on the second floor with a water view and a balcony. The room was clean and comfortable. The provided breakfast was a very basic continental breakfast, but met our needs. One of the 'perks' of this place is that it offered, at least when we were there, free...

Instead of taking the last ferry home (Salt Spring) we decided to stay, have a nice dinner and take the dog for a walk in the morning. This hotel is very pet friendly in addition to being clean and comfortable the staff are just so friendly. It was just after Christmas and they had Christmas baked treats at the front...

We stayed here in a deluxe waterfront suite as a base to visit Butchart Gardens. Though not close to Butchart, it is close to the car ferry. More importantly, it is in a beautiful location with water views, very near the waterfront walkway, shops, and restaurants It was so nice and peaceful to walk along the waterfront.

Already the contact with the friendly staff made us look forward to our renewed stay in this small but very comfortable hotel. It's good to know you will arrive to a clean and friendly place after a long journey. The hotel is ideally located from the airport, just a short taxi ride. This makes it comfortable to relax first and...

We stayed in a Deluxe Waterfront suite Oct 8-15. Very nice size room with kitchenette which came in very handy. It was nice to sit out on the balcony with coffee enjoying the morning sun and the great views. The room was very well kept and clean and the staff were welcoming and very friendly. The location is ideal with...

When I checked in, they first put me in a dingy room with no view although I had booked a room with waterfront view. I was able to get another room but quickly found out that "waterfront view" actually means "street view with waterfront behind", and lots of people walking past the tiny patio with dirty furniture. Breakfast was nothing...

Stayed one night. Room was smaller, but nicely done. Continental breakfast included. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Easy walk thru town and onto the beach. Free wifi and parking. Would definitely stay at this small hotel again.

Older Inn with a great location, clean rooms, and great staff. We had a room with a view of the bay, a deck and chairs and a comfortable bed. Reasonable rates, and a breakfast bar. Parking on site but no elevator.
