I stayed here on two separate occasions within two weeks of each other for one night only on each occasion. My first stay was in a beautiful Queen Room that was larger than I expected and spotlessly clean. The room appeared to have been recently redone with nice and new flooring, a shower, sink, etc. I was impressed, especially after having read the other reviews for this spot. However, on my second stay, I was "upgraded" to the studio apartment, and I would not recommend booking this room. It was dark, felt old, dirty carpet, leaking shower, etc. If you can book in the nice, newer part of the guesthouse, I would definitely stay here again, but for the rooms in the older part of the property, I'll pass. I will say that I did appreciate the good wifi, friendly staff, late check-in times, and the ability to keep my (small) luggage in the office for the day even after I had checked out.

After escaping Prince George RV Park nightmare we found this boutique guest house and were so grateful. Clean, interesting, walking distance to town, it was just what we needed. We stayed in the first building which is a heritage building but has been renovated very nicely. We would stay here again.

So overpriced++ especially for our 3 nights... cave-like room with window views to a concrete stairwell full of junk... so noisy at night from upstairs guests often until midnight and one night again from 3am!! Manager actually said " there's carpet or other insulation needed"! He could not oblige similar room move. One towel each, one dishcloth,one tea-towel and couldn't find Housekeeping staff. Notes/phone messages left at 9am not answered until after 6pm! Housekeeping ( finally seen on checkout) said they're too busy (it shows) as "no staff employed since June"...shower pressure okay, comfy bed but overall, the room dank and depressing for a stay. Outside "entertainment" area with BBQ needs a good clean up (shift the bbq OR all the rubbish bins!) as do the walkways. Manager was to arrange a part refund, we're still waiting. Shame that posted photos. show misleading accommodation unless ours was completely out of order. Book elsewhere. We're so disappointed especially as International guests. 2/10

The Black Rooster is located in a nice neighbourhood. The rooms are large, clean, and one had a nice living room area to hang out in. The buildings also had lovely decks. Laundry machines were conveniently located. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the 3 bed spacious apartment, they waited up for us to arrive on the ferry which we appreciated and even showed us to the room, opened the door and switched on a few lights. There was tea, coffee and whitener in the kitchen. Mis matched mugs and cheap dinner service let the really nice kitchen down. There were a few long hairs in the bathroom (ugh) but otherwise the place was really clean. The beds are comfy, shower pressure abit poor , but we’d stay here again.

I stayed at this dump while I was working in Prince Rupert. The staff was lazy and rude and the owners were absolutely unreasonable. My rent was even increased illegally during Covid-19 and there was always an excuse as to why they couldn't get my room cleaned on the designated day. I had people try to break into my apartment regularly in the middle of the night, my car tires were slashed while using their "secure" parking, and the outside doors never locked properly. This is an extremely unsafe place for a family or a single woman to stay. I absolutely do not recommend even taking the chance here. The furniture was old, worn out and stained, the bed was absolutely worn out, the place stinks like mold and the laundry facilities were filthy as well.

Spacious flats (our had 4 rooms and 4 bathrooms), a large dining room with kitchen, perfect for two families. The owner is very friendly and nice and speaks a dozen languages. Not exactly in the center of the town (assuming that Prince Rupert) is a town and has a center), but a very happy choice for us

My partner and I stayed in building 3 of Black Rooster guesthouse and were extremely impressed. The room was spotless, large, and comfortable. Four private queen rooms each have their own bathroom, but also all had access to a communal kitchen and living room downstairs for those four rooms. This makes it an even better option than a standard hotel room - you can cook, lounge, or just stay in your private room. I was very impressed with my stay! Forget the Crest!

Have stayed here on a few occasions. This is the final visit. I booked an apartment for 6.....only 2 could share a bed. There was some contradiction on the website as to exactly how many this 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom apt slept but somewhere between 8-10. Only 4 beds & no pull out couch but an extra mattress in one room. The mattress smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. I went to the front desk for some sheets for the mattress. Was told I had to pay another $20 for sheets for the mattress. After spending $500 on the room already I said no. Fortunately had a thermarest and sleeping bag in the truck. The other person slept on the couch. Customer service a 0.

We had a couple of nice rooms in a building away from the main office. Had access to nice common area and kitchen. Close walking distance to town, and helpful staff. Located in interesting neighborhood setting.
