We like to travel "off the beaten" path and Alert Bay - certainly fits that. The Nimpkish Hotel was a quaint, quiet and lovely place to spend our holiday. The weather was quite cool and we purchased "Alert Bay" sweat shirts. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff were extremely helpful. The view from the deck was beautiful, regretfully we did not see a whale passing. The community was welcoming and we enjoyed our visit. If you head north - think of Alert Bay and the Nimpkish Hotel! You will not regret your decision.

Mr. and Mrs. Brent Hauser gave my wife and I the most wonderful experience, by their gracious and kind hospitality. Our room was immaculate and the view magnificent. Brent arranged the use of a gas BBQ, the use of cozy cushions to lounge on the outdoor deck, where we could view the setting sun, in the comfort of an outdoor heater. Brent helped me arrange for adventure excursions with skilled people who shared with us their love of nature. The hotel was our gateway to viewing grizzly bears, sea lions, and humpback whales. The breakfast items were fresh and chosen with care, satisfying us with delight. This hotel is a perfect for couples, families, and for groups such as small churches or businesses. This place reflects the love and care of Brent and his wife Jen. They even went out of their way to buy a cherished souvenir for my wife from the museum, as a favor to us. If this keeps up, I will need to book a year in advance to return, as this place should be your first choice to lodging in the area. Charles and Lily.

The Nimpkish Hotel and cultural/sightseeing attractions of Alert Bay met every item on our wish list during our recent stay. The natural beauty of morning mist, sunsets, calm waters and occasionally whale sounds, interesting sea life and lapping waves created the perfect backdrop for our getaway. Our hosts,Jan and Brent,created an atmosphere that made us feel like lingering; the home-style breakfasts and little extras were so lovely. We are looking forward to our next visit!

We really enjoyed our stay at Nimpkish Hotel! The rooms were very well equipped, the location is great, and we loved having a glass of wine on the deck! The views were insane! Also can’t forget the homemade muffins for breakfast, Yum!

The view from room #2 is amazing. The hotel is right on the water and only a short drive from the ferry. The owners Brent and his wife were perfect hosts! Lots of talk about the local attractions, history and things to do (where to eat!!). This is a unique charming place to stay and relax and enjoy the oceanside environment! Coming back for sure.
