Coast Tsawwassen Inn
The location of this hotel, 8 minutes from the ferry to Salt Spring Island was perfect for us. The hotel was older but was clean and many updates were happening. The underground parking was a plus. The rooms were very roomy and had all the amenities we needed. I loved the new card door locks. You just flashed the card against the lock and they unlocked. Breakfast was very good. the front desk people were very helpful. Also the location with the restaurant and gas station within a block was a plus. I would stay again if catching the ferry from the terminal.

a bit pricey but clean and basic, quiet and staff were pleasant and accommodating, rooms are a bit cramped for family but good for short stays, bigger rooms are quite expensive, one disappointment is no room service and the restaurant is attached, good food at the restaurant.

We stayed one night when we were too late to catch the last ferry. As far as I can see this is one of only two hotels in Tsawassen and we picked it because it was a Coast Hotel although more expensive. Bad move. The room was large, but like the hotel, dated, utilitarian decor. Not very welcoming. The staff were pleasant and accommodating but the breakfast was dreadful. Stale, heat in a microwave, breakfast sandwiches and not very good coffee. This is an $85 hotel charging $125.
My family and I stay here every Christmas to visit family in Vancouver. It’s a nice place and serves all our basic needs. 2 beds, 2 tvs, both in separate rooms. Sometimes we get a better room which has 2 beds plus a fold out couch which gives a nice extra spot to sleep. There are 4 of us that stay and it usually turns out to be fine. Pool is nice as well.
Only problem, which is probably only a problem for some people. The bathrooms are made for hobbits! I’m only 5’11″ and I have trouble sitting down to use the toilet because it is so low down. I Also have a little bit of difficulty having a shower, because I hit my head on the shower head. I need to crouch down during my entire shower, again, I’m only 5’11″!
This is the only thing that I find outrageous. I know plenty of people that are over 6 feet tall, and if I had problems with these facilities, I can only imagine how hard it would be for them. The hotel doesn’t look like that old, if I had to guess, I’d say this hotel was built between the late 80s and 2000. I see no reason to make the shower and toilet for such tiny people.
that’s my only complaint. MAKE BIGGER BATHROOMS!!
Not a Bad Stay at the Inn
First time that I have been to Tsawwassen, did’t know where to stay and friend recommended the Tsawwassen Inn. Usually skeptical when the hotel is called an Inn.
Anyway as it turns out this is not a bad hotel. I was surprised when I walked up to the desk I was the Special Guest of the Day I knew this by the big sign with my name on it…..I was treated to a room upgrade Executive Suite plus a goodie bag. So the room I was upgraded to was massive. It came with kitchen, dining room, sitting area. The bathroom came with both stand up shower and jetted tub.The bedroom was huge you could have put 4 queen beds in it. Off the bedroom was a patio area, however the walls were very high so to enjoy scenery was not possible.
The fitness room needs to be updated especially the equipment. The breakfast was the usual no frills grab and go. Fresh fruits, breads, yogurts etc. Now the staff was great to deal with everything that I asked for they were accomadating and friendly. This hotel shows it age, but is comfortable.
