Room was comfortable, quiet, well appointed and clean. Staff went out of their way to help when asked. Compared to other hotels in Prince Rupert, the Highliner is less expensive, but still has fantastic views of the mountains and ocean from your room. The restaurant, on the other hand, is cavelike with no view of the ocean. Skip it.
Instead, walk a block to the Prince Rupert Hotel for a quiet all-you-can-eat continental breakfast for about $11. It's atmosphere is really welcoming after a recent renovation. Tim Horton's is also across the street. For lunch or dinner, you can walk 15 minutes (or take a taxi for $5) to The Crest for an upscale meal at their restaurant or a more lively time at the pub.
The only thing I would change... add a spiral binder of hotel amenities and local information. This is not included in any of the rooms or even at the front desk. I asked. You have to ask the person at the desk and hope they are not new to the job or the town. Even at cheap hotels this type of information is usually in every room. But not offering it at the front desk?! This seems like they just didn't care.
