I have been going to Prince Rupert for over ten years to fish and have always stayed at the Moby Dick. Can't imagine going anywhere else. The facilities are ok and the rooms are clean and have a microwave and fridge. The freezer room and bbq and crab pot all come in handy. We always get a great rate with... More

We booked this hotel for two nights to see the sights of Prince Rupert while waiting for our ferry. We chose the hotel based on price and the reviews on tripadvisor. We knew that it was an older hotel offering basic accommodation but we were disappointed that it was less than clean and had some damaged furniture in the room.... More

This was by far the worst place I have ever stayed. The coffee maker didn't work. The Wifi didn't work. A microwave was in the room but no utensils or plates to use. The bed would break my back if I had to stay longer. Stay away.

I stayed at the hotel three night for my trip and the hotel has got exactly what I needed. The room was bigger than I expected and the bed was very comfortable. Nice hotel staff and great location!! I definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and co workers.

Stayed at Moby Dick Inn one night, Was disappointed because I feel I may have been booked into a bigger room when they knew I was only one person. I feel smaller, less expensive rooms were available, but were not disclosed. Positives: comfortable bed in a bigger room on upper floor relatively close to anything in Prince Rupert (15 minute...

The furniture in the room looked old, but the rooms were clean enough. The restaurant was really good and lots of locals seems to eat here, so that's always a good sign. Food was reasonably priced and the servers were pleasant and service was super fast. Internet was fast too.

I stayed at Moby Dick Inn for two nights, and it was quite nice. The inn is conveniently located to the BC ferry terminal, Overwaitea Foods, restaurants, Tim Hortons and etc. Their front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was quite spacious which I liked a lot. The room was a bit warm for me, but they... More

Although the restaurant was closed during this years' stay, I have eaten breakfast there before and the food was quite reasonable; the motel staff were everywhere you needed to find them and very freindly and helpful. Very well placed for ferry traffic and I have checked in the motel at midnight coming off the ferry and checked out for the... More
