This may be the first review of the Ocean View Hotel, so I would like to provide some additional information. Prince Rupert is at the end of the road in British Columbia, Canada. The city is served by the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry, BC Ferry, VIA Rail and Greyhound Canada, so there are lots of ways to visit by public transportation. Many of the towns in Southeast Alaska which are visited by cruise ships and have turned into tourist traps. Prince Rupert is like Alaska use to be before the cruise industry turned the communities into a place to buy a souvenir, instead of appreciating the culture, heritage, and natural beauty.

We were originally booked in the largest and highest rated hotel in Prince Rupert. A friend of ours had stayed in the Ocean View Hotel and thought we would enjoy the “funky” experience. He told me the hotel was clean and room #1 at the back of the hotel had an unobstructed view of the bay. He was right. We considered the hotel charming.

We checked in at the bar/restaurant and had reserved room #1 by calling the hotel. The summer rate was $75CAN plus tax per night for a room with a private Jacuzzi bathtub, queen size bed, small fridge, and flat screen TV with cable service. The hotel even had free WiFi in the room. Rooms are also available with a shared bath starting at $45CAN per night. The staff was warm, friendly, and very efficient.

Don’t expect the Ocean View to be a 5 star hotel because those do not exist in Prince Rupert The building is 100 years old and has been remodeled and is a good alternative to hotels, motels, and B&Bs. Finally, the food in the bar/restaurant in the Ocean View is first class. The halibut and homemade fries were outstanding and the lunch special, $9.95 steak sandwich and fries was perfect.

Finally I would like to share my logic for my overall rating of 4 on Trip Advisor. The room at the hotel alone is probably a 2 or 3. Based on the price we paid, the superior view from our room, the great food, and the friendly staff, I believe a 4 is the proper way to rate the overall experience.

This is a nice little hotel that is homey and helpful. Lots of renovations going on while I was there, so I trust the rooms will be renewed and the place will be even better. Good breakfast available with the nice dining room with a terrific view. Just a fine place to stay - kind staff!

The lady that works night shift is completely rude, her attitude, her actions, the guy that works in the afternoon same way! I was asked if I am from rupert, and if I was I wasn't allowed to rent from there, because I would party and wreck the room!! I don't even drink!!she told us that because we checked in so late we had until Tuesday morning not Monday!!so the manager called said the girl was wrong, and she needed some kind money, so well we paid!! The afternoon guy comes in and starts barking at me, that I wasn't getting to stay there for free or half price, I said I know I already talked to the manager, and he barks well I'm calling the manager... Go ahead I said!! Those two should not be working there or take a course on how to talk to customers!! I was not happy, neither was my husband!!
