The Good
Guests who stayed recently enjoyed their stays at this hotel. Rooms were basic, but clean, and the atmosphere was friendly. Some mentioned that the hotel had been refurbished.

Recent guests seemed pleased with their rooms. They described them as clean, quiet and spacious, with linoleum flooring and full-size fridges. A guest who had a room with a kitchen said it was well stocked with all the essentials, and another was pleased with good water pressure in the shower.

Some guests were happy to stay outside of the noisy downtown core and some enjoyed the nature trails behind the hotel. One guest who had a dog was pleased to have a nice trail behind the hotel for walking his pet. 

The location of this hotel was considered convenient for guests wanting to access the train station or ferry terminal as it was only a short drive and also within walking distance. Guests were also pleased with good highway access from this hotel.

Guests said the owners and staff were friendly and hospitable, and one reviewer mentioned being treated to cookies at the front desk.

The Bad
There were not a lot of reviews posted online since the hotel did their renovations, so there was not a lot of negative feedback that was current.

One guest complained about an AC unit that didn't work and a "bad smell to the room". Another said the water in Prince Rupert was yellowish due to the water mains being made of wood.

A couple of reviewers found the room rates quite expensive.
