The hotel was of reasonable quality given the price. This is in comparison to other hotels in the area that I looked at. There is a river close by that is nice to hear when you leave your room. I also spotted 6-7 bald eagles hanging out in a tree above the river by the hotel. It was really cool if you're into that sort of thing :)

Stayed in the RV park on a couple extended stays...they don't cram you in so tight that you have no space. Quiet, right next to the Quatse River...come watch the salmon run and bears along the river. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays here. Had family come up in July, all stayed at the Pioneer Inn next door. Rooms are dated but clean and provide you with a warm comfy bed next to the hatchery on the Quatse River. Nice place for people on a budget.

Don’t waste your time here! I booked a room for a couple friends coming off the ferry, called the day of to confirm. The guy yes, it’s booked, I talked to you yesterday, etc. Well my friends get off the ferry, late, needing a place to rest their heads before they continue down the island, just to find out the idiot didn’t actually book the room. So he took my credit card information for no reason? You would think because of the mix up, they would help the people out and find a room in their hotel or even give a suggestion to another hotel. Nope, nothing. DO NOT waste your time or money here. Unless all you need is a shower, spend the extra 30$ for a better hotel room.

Came off the BC Ferry from Prince Rupert. Pioneer Inn was perfect for us as we just needed a shower and a few hours sleep before continuing on to Victoria. Reasonable easy to find. Close to the ferry terminal but best if you have a vehicle. Fairly busy place at 11:30pm after the ferry arrives. Clean. Reasonably comfortable. Not new or modern but just enough for our needs. The most important point: pet friendly.

Noisy, old and not partcularly clean. No breakfast and more than $30 over the quoted price. Being closer to the ferry doesn't compensate for the holes in the roof and the paper thin walls. A bulldozer would be a big improvement.
