Convenient location with parking and close to shopping. Clean, comfortable, quiet room with basic amenities including an elevator and friendly service. Short walking distance to anywhere downtown and oceanfront.

Moby Dick Inn is very well located for a tourist waiting to fill in some time before catching the next ferry. It is walking distance to everything. All the staff great and accommodating. Any meal we had in the restaurant was very good. A little run down but clean. Easy to find after a ferry ride and getting in late... More

We stayed here after disembarking the BC Ferry Northern Expedition and were satisfied with our stay. We did not expect a Hampton or Hyatt level of accommodation, but we were satisfied with our stay. The room was essential with the usual microwave, coffee pot, fridge, etc. Cool weather and a fan made up for lack of A/C, but I'm not... More

It is what it is. Somewhat weathered but the staff are nice and the location works. Walkable to the Tourist sections of town and other facilities. Parking out back. It does have a restaurant and pub but we did not partake. The room and bathroom are clean although my bed was rock hard. There is no AC. When we arrived... More

From the front street entrance there are several steps to climb to get to reception that was efficient on check in. The room was okay and clean enough. There is parking at the back I believe you have access to an elevator. No air conditioning but it wasn't a hot night and the fan was fine.

Good sized room. Clean and comfortable bed. Batroom clean. Very nice staff. Only negatives are yes, could use a refresh on some things. Definitely aging. Fairly steady noise from traffic. Also after I declined housekeeping on Thurs. as not feeling well, no service on Fri. No notice for door to indicate status. Also hallway carpet not vacuumed well. But all... More

Make sure to ask about parking, especially where to park if the lot behind the hotel is full and all spaces in front of the building on the street are occupied. Price and amenities were what I needed.

Have not actually stayed at the hotel in a few years but enjoy coming here for their breakfast. The eggs benedict is my go-to choice. It is not a super popular spot so it isn't usually very busy. Good service as well.

We arrived at Prince Rupert on the ferry very late at night so just needed a place to sleep. This fit the bill. Pros: Inexpensive and convenient to the ferry. Lots of hot water in the morning and a new flat screen TV. Cons: The sheets and towels smelled like bug spray, everything was a bit dated, the in room... More

It was not new and shiny, but was perfect for a single overnight while waiting for the ferry. Good location within three blocks of several restaurants and a liquor store! Great for fishermen, then have a storage locker for fish. Parking is a little tight. Would stay there again.
