        3.8

        It is very close to ferries

        We asked to change room (there was a noisy restaurant van), they said that it would be possible, but they never did it. The staff was very unpolite. Wireless did not work

      • Family with children
        3.2

        The only positive thing about this hotel is the location; this hotel needs major renovations!!!! The hotel restaurant food is not good at all...very greasy!!!! The rooms smell of cigarettes...plus the hotel hallways do as well. The beds are very old...the pillows are very lumpy. The esthetic appeal of this hotel is not there. It is not the cleanest hotel...it would be ok for a quick overnight or for people who are on a budget...this hotel still costs around 90.00/night....still too much for this hotel. There is no air-con. In the room..mind you in Prince Rupert with the rain...probably not needed!!! My mother stayed at the hotel around 30 years ago and she states that the decor is the same as when she stayed there.

        The staff were friendly and cheerful. On the inside, the hotel appeared clean and well run. The rooms have balconies. It's okay if you expectations are low and you really need a place to stay.

        The booked room was not available and we were downgraded. The room had recently been replastered but not painted & looked like a constuction zone. Sink & tub were full of soap scum, sink was rusty. Restaurant was not open at meal times. It was quite a walk to find an open place to eat. Very gray and drab exterior. I could go on but I only have 300 words. For the first time in my life, I actually sent a note to the management company! Big disappointment.

      • Group of friends

        Cooperation of staff when my husband had to check out earlier than anticipated.

        Somewhat dated

      • Couple
        7.8

        Very convenient location: the bus from the airport stops there and there is a car rental in the same building. Book your car in advance!!! They often run out of cars in the weekend. Nice gym with ocean view.

        Wireless did not work in the room, but only on the lobby (and was quite slow). On Friday they said internet had problems since the previous Monday and it was not fixed yet when I left on Sunday night. They do not seem to care very much.

        Great location for people travelling to Prince Rupert on work

        The hotel did not have a record of our reservation when we got there. Initially we could not get into our room because the door would not open. We were told the problems were due to a recent power outage.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        The rooms were very quiet which was important to us as we were getting up very early for fishing and going to bed early

      • Single
        7.8

        Convenient, the airport bus stops there. Close to places to eat seafood.Nice view from th e 9th floor.

        Internet connection poor except in the lobby.Very noisy air conditioning unit on roof belw my room.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Our room did over look the ocean which was really nice.

        The girl was on the computer and she couldn't find my booking. We had a King Room booked for 29/05, 30/05, 31/05 when we got there there was no King Room available. We ended up getting a queen room with no fridge. We also did not have hot water for two days because they broke a hot water pipe when they were renevating on the seventh floor.

        It was clean and quiet. We could chance the room in 10 minutes (we would have a microwave)

        Good response as my on line reservation was incorrectly recorded and the desk person was very efficeint and pleasant about correcting it and accepting the fact that the the hotel end not me was in error.Well done!

        it's a convenient place to stay over in prince rupert. it's ok, though not very special in any way. funny thing happened. when we arrived and checked in, i was told they had not gotten a reservation from Booked.net. you may want to check this. still we had no problems checking in for the rate you quoted and not the higher rate of that day. i appreciated that.

        .it's a bit sober.

        the veiw was wounderful and i love that it was close to shopping,and great breakfast and excellent service, will recomend and have recomend to my family and friends thanks

        we asked for a king room and got two double beds on the smoking floor,we were not asked if this would have been alright.there must have been a miss understanding .i think we should have been given a different option

      • Single
        5.4

        The location. The price. The size of the room.

        Hotel is tired and looking tatty. Bed horribly uncomfortable. No internet in business room. Fitness suite has non-operational equipment. No list of services in the room - when does the restaurant open; what local facilities are there? Hot water alternates with cold on showering.

        great location in town, has rental car office inside, best in town for access to airport shuttle
