The hotel room was large, but run down. It is badly in need of renovations. The bed was also not as comfortable as it could have been, as it sagged in the middle. But, we got a good enough sleep, and the room was clean.

We arrived late due to the Alaska ferry. No problem with check in. Desk staff quite friendly and helpful. Rooms were decent size, however there was no A/C. We ended up sleeping with the slider open and got to listen to all the drunk folks out on the streets of Prince Rupert at 2 am.The bathroom had no ventilation and... More

We have stayed at the Highliner Plaza in Prince Rupert many times while traveling through. It's clear that we have short memories, because each time we stay here we vow that next time we'll find somewhere better. The rooms are spartan, the beds are uncomfortable, and the hallways and elevators smell strangely. I will say that the view is outstanding.... More

Spent 3 nights at the hotel and have stayed at the Highliner for over 11 years and it is sad to see it deteriorate to such a level. The staff was great in getting us in but the rooms are very old and neglected. The telephone did not work and getting into bed the first night the leg collapsed. After... More

The staff that I dealt with were very helpful. The only problem with this property is that the rooms are in dire need of a total make over. The room I occupied had a balcony with a great view of the harbour and coastal areas but getting the sliding balcony door open was a challenge as the runners seemed to... More

We stayed here while going out on a charter fishing trip. The rooms are old, but clean and quiet. Friendly staff at the front desk. Great view of the harbour! The location to downtown is excellent. The price for the room was very reasonable compared to the other Hotel in Prince Rupert.

My second stay at this hotel and I will be back. Excellent value and very nice staff. We had to leave on business and they helped us by storing our luggage. The rooms are a reasonable price and all have a beautiful view of the sea.Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. Excellent breakfast downstairs- also at a reasonable price.... More

Recently I had a short stay at Highliner. Room was renovated. Room is big with standard hotel look. The cleaning lady probably missed some corners. Overall is fine. I felt great to look out the window. Because it is high, I believe you can always see the ocean no matter which room you stay in. The not so impressed part... More

Not much to look at from the outside, frankly, my first impression was of a concrete monolith tower of some Intourist hotels in former communist countries. The inside is quite nice , howeve, and the staff very friendly and accommodating . This is the place where the shuttle bus to the airport ( which requires a ferry ride to Rigby... More
