Very nice and clean hotel. Was very pleased to have such a nice and clean and quiet hotel room.. Internet was fast, cable TV worked and shower was hot in the morning, plus breakfast on the lobby was a bonus... Management and staff very nice and helpful, and parking lot has CCTV cameras so it's nice to know vehicles are... More

The friendly desk attendant gave us a room on the third floor! Did not realize the difference in the rooms on other floors until we saw the pictures on this website. Our room was very hot upon check in (would have liked air conditioning) and did not appear to have been vacuumed. The bed was very comfortable and excellent water... More

Old sign, nice inside! It's a retro kind of place with real keys and old fashioned fridges. Super comfy beds and nice bathrooms. The rooms were very clean and the staff are attentive in a reasonably priced hotel. The vibe is very positive here, I enjoyed my stay.

We stayed in a renovated room on the second floor and it was a great experience. The hotel is older but it is very clean and the people at the front desk are very helpful and friendly. It was nice to have a fridge ,micro and coffee in the room when you are on the go as we were. We... More

This motel is very handy for travellers coming off a late-night ferry from points south. It is close to the ferry dock (~1.5 km) and on the main road. Very basic features, fairly good parking but it fills up on ferry arrival nights.

Really nice hotel, big rooms, good wifi, all tv channels, breakfast, car parking, and cheap as well! Only downside was that relative to some other options, it was a little bit further out of town (20 min walk to the ferry terminals). But otherwise, very nice hotel, espeically considering it's Prince Rupert (no offence to the place, but my room... More

Closer to the BC Ferry dock than to town however it suited us well. Full marks for pristine white bed linens (gosh I hate those musty bead spreads that never get laundered), comfy beds, retro furnishings including new turquoise appliances. Our room was large, faced the back, and was quiet.

10 minutes walk to the center. Nice room with kitchen for a little more than 100 CAD. The breakfast is really poor though. 2 minutes taxi ride from the Alaska Marine Highway ferry for 7 CAD. Unfortunately no airconditioning and it was a little too warm in the room.

Thank you for your comments about your stay at Totem Lodge. We have had warmer than usual weather this season so at times the rooms are a bit warmer than we would like. We are sorry you were disappointed with the breakfast. It's possible your stay was at a time that the breakfast offering was not up to our usual... More

This is a very decent motel. Rooms are clean and spacious (except for the bathroom), although painted in dark colours which makes it appear less bright. They have a fridge, coffee machine and microwave. Windows have a mosquito-thing (don't know the name) so they can be opened safely. Breakfast is better than in much other motels: bagels, toast, muffins, cereals,... More

Excellent stay before taking the ferry. The staff was also excellent. The room was very cute and clean. There were four of us staying in two double beds. We should have got two rooms as it was a bit crowded. We appreciated the breakfast.
