Coast Tsawwassen Inn
Just call us the Flintstones!
Our family of four stayed at the Coast for a combo bridal shower/bachelor/bachelorette event.
Upon entering the room, it appeared to be good for the four of us, and clean BUT…along came bed time and suffice to say that sleep was not happening anytime soon! The beds were like sleeping on a slab of rock…so uncomfortable and really unpleasant. The pull out for my two children was so thin, they too had a difficult time settling in to a good night’s sleep. We all woke up sleepy eyes and cranky and anxious to get back on the ferry and head home.
Next visit to the area, we will skip this location of the Coast chain and find something further out simply for the sake of a good nights sleep.
This is a typical 3-star property. The location is especially convenient if you are traveling to or from Vancouver island by ferry. The hotel is in need of a facelift and the owners are well aware of this, as construction has begun. This is not really disruptive.
The front office staff was particularly friendly. The complimentary breakfast was what you would expect: self-serve yoghurt, cereal, breads, juice, etc. but nothing out of the ordinary.
We found the lounge to be too noisy but if you like this sort of thing you will find plenty of company.
Hotel is a little older and in a state of repair.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The room configuration was a little different but worked all the same and they didn’t give me the nasty rooms you usually get when traveling with pets.
Browns Social House is collocated with the hotel and the food was good as was the staff.
5 minutes from the Ferry was a definite bonus.
Will be interesting to see after the upgrade and will stay here again.
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.
