“Right on the harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

Clean rooms but a litlle small, we had a " mountain " side which really was parking level and the view was a car parked right a front of the window. The hotel could use some updates: bathroom fan didn't work even after maintenance guy check, water temp was very irregular: almost burn me in shower and was going on between hot to cold without me touching faucet.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, had breakfast ready before regular time to accommodate our early time for ferry.
Would be nice if the owner let guests use the big patio overlooking bay( specially not being there themselves)

We spent two nights here on seperate occasions - first night we took their luxury room which was very comfortable and the second night we stayed in the next level down - happened to be next door! Great view over the harbour easy walk to Cow Bay - breakfast most adequate but simple. Overall expensive!

Room Tip: Choose a harbour view room - the extra cost is woorth it!

We've stayed in a room with mountainview, but the mountainview was not that incredible. We had a room at the lower floor, so al kinds of buildings blocked the view. But the room itself was nice, in the morning you can enjoy a small breakfast.

My wife and I stayed two nights here in a harbour view room with two queen beds. While the exterior of the hotel was drab, the rooms were well appointed and spacious. The view of the harbour was breathtaking and well worth the additional cost. The hotel provides binoculars in the room so that you can observe the wildlife and traffic on the harbour. While there was plenty of room with two queen beds, rooms with a single queen were the same size so are far more spacious.

Reception was very helpful and friendly and the complementary breakfast was adequate. The hotel is close to a major supermarket and a number of attractions and next door to a good restaurant. One problem is that there is no elevator which may pose a problem for some people getting luggage to the second or third floor.

We would have no hesitation staying here again.

What a great place, make sure you get a room with ocean view. The young lady behind the till was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, and all in all gave us a great customer experience. I usually stay at 'The Crest', but I think my next visits I will return to the Inn.

I arrived at 3:30 a.m. from the Alaska ferry, and couldn't have had a better reception - a warm welcome from the person on duty, efficient check-in (and a later check-out), and a free upgrade to a beautiful harbour view room. It was nice and quiet, and clean and comfy. I just wish I could have spent longer there. I would have liked to lounge on the couch by the window enjoying the view and looking for whales with the binoculars provided. The included breakfast was fine: yoghurt, juice, toast, muffins etc. The location was great for me, a short walk to the Greyhound terminal one side, and a short walk to the museum and gardens on the other.

Room Tip: From my experience and looking at comments from others, it appears that the harbour view rooms are g...

If you are travelling to Prince Rupert on business this is the hotel you want to book. The accommodations are exactly what you expect - comfortable, clean, well equipped. Stay on the harbour side is you want the view.
