“Clean and overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel as the place to be before getting on the ferry. It is close to the ferries and not far from downtown either. So it's location is convenient. The restaurant is still closed. The room was very clean as was the bathroom, the hallways and the lobby. And if the room had been $80 it would have been very acceptable as we paid considerably more than that it needs some updating, some artwork, some color, bigger towels, something to make it worth what we paid. It did serve for what we needed.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

I have stayed here a couple of times on an annual fishing trip to Prince Rupert. A couple of years ago I stayed there and thought it was a decent place to stay. The restaurant was good and the rooms were quiet and clean.
This year it was not so great. The bar and restaurant were closed. My room was not great either. The bathroom and shower were clean as were the linens. The linens on the bed were clean (I think) but a little grey. The worst thing was the carpeted floor. Not only was it full of cigarette burns but the carpet was filthy. I don't think it had been vacumed in years.
This place is going downhill fast. That is a pity because it is the closest motel to the ferries and should be able to make it.

The town is dead for 9 months of the year. We use property each year when out gathering the annual freezer load of salmon and bottom fish. It is what it is. Clean and good value for the $. Not the Ritz but there are a lot worse in Rupert. Judy at front desk always takes care of us.

Had reservations but on arrival had a sense things would not be good - looked dirty, smelled dirty, so we asked to see the room. The attitude of the desk clerk was immediately defensive, but she took us to see it. Immediately on entry ( it was dark and dingy as was the hallway) and smelled worse than out in the hallway, My husband said no. Clerk said there would be a cancellation fee of one night in a very negative way. We left.

I cant comment on the hotel side of this place, But I've eaten here a few times and the food has been very good and the staff were always pleasant. Easily the best fish & chips in town, much nicer than "Smiles"
