I arrived at the hotel at 9 am in the morning having arrived early in Prince Rupert on the night ferry from Ketchikan and was checked in right away and without any ekstra cost. Excellent service ! The room was dated but clean. Due to the small window it was warm in the room even though it was cold outside,... More

Basic accommodation for a night or two, centrally located. No air conditioning in the room and the windows don't open wide enough to cool the room. Everything worked in the room and it's safe enough once your inside the hotel. The parking facilities leave a lot to be desired from an access and providing a safe secure feeling point of... More

My boyfriend and I had to drive a long distance due to an unexpected call from work, and every hotel we went to was full. Angela (the receptionist at the Inn) was very kind to us and understanding of our frustrations. She helped us get a good room at the Inn with a nice view, and was very accommodating. She... More

Staying for two nights while awaiting the ferry to Port Hardy. There's nothing fancy about this hotel. TV, fridge and keurig coffee maker in the room. It's a place to stay and sleep. The only drawback is the lack of a/c. Rooms on the north side of the property get some very hot afternoon sun beating down with the blinds... More

Moby Dick needs a bit of upgrading, but that didn't detract from our stay. The room was large and comfortable and had every amenity we needed. It's located centrally so eating out did not need a long trek, in fact we walked to a very close=by restaurant in less than 5 minutes. The guy on the desk was very helpful... More

Well this was my 8th year returning to the Moby Dick Inn for a 5 night stay. I was very impressed with the state of the Inn this year. The crab cooking area has returned, which was a pleasant surprise. ( C'mon people... if you use the area, clean up after yourself) It is nice to get back to your... More

Good price, old hotel, old furniture, rooms could be cleaner, pleasant staff. I had no problem staying there. If you are looking for 5 star accommodations, this is not it. It was plain, safe and could use a lot of updating.

The Moby is out dated but the rooms were clean and comfortable. Didn't spend much time in the room due to sight seeing. If u need a room for a good price this is it. Directly downtown and close to all amenities.

The Moby Dick is an old hotel but is in the process of being updated. I enjoyed my stay and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. It's in a good location and it is a short walk to most places in Rupert. Of course Rupert isn't that big so most things are within walking distance. My room was clean... More
