A month ago, we booked this motel in Prince Rupert because of its rating and because it was much cheaper than the other choices. I read the reviews and saw that someone had trouble getting in late at night, that there was nobody at the desk and that the doors were locked. I figured it must have be a one... More

So we came into Prince Rupert not having any reservations. The hotel we previously stayed at was booked along with the other two we wanted. This was listed in trip advisor as the 4th hotel in Prince Rupert. We may have gotten the last room. We didn't specify non smoking and forgot that we weren't in the US where non... More

This hotel is in an older building and is showing its age. However it is kept clean and is a good place to stay. Not as nice as the fancy hotels in the city centre but much cheaper. I got a room with a kitchen for much less than downtown hotels. Also, it is on the same road and close... More

I was put up here by my work because it has a kitchenette. Overall I might be taking out my dislike of Prince Rupert in the winter on the hotel because I have no real complaints other than it was just a bit drab like the city so it felt depressing. Not modern. I think it is ok for the... More

We drove into Prince Rupert late from a 4 day drive with our tired children, and our dog. The Totem Lodge is Pet Friendly. Our kitchenette was very large and clean, and the beds were more than comfortable. Breakfast and Coffee or special teas in the lobby were very welcoming and nice to sit and chat. The family running the... More

First, problems with reservation. I reserved online through booking.com a couple weeks before the trip because I just wanted to know we had a bed between ferries. A couple days before we left, I realized I hadn't gotten a confirmation. So I called. It wasn't in the system, but they added it. When we arrived, there was confusion and muttering... More

Rather old but cheap and clean with a warm welcome by friendly and helpful staff. Very easy to find when coming off the BC Ferry in the dark, it is the first motel on the right hand side of the road as you drive into Prince Rupert, The breakfast is very welcome with good coffee. Prince Rupert is an interesting... More

Off the ferry at 10.45pm, not knowing the area, so was glad for a short straight forward drive to motel. Our room smelt of stale cooking and carpet needs changing - well dirty/ marked. Decor needs updating. Had a good comfortable sleep. Wi-Fi connection is simple and fast. Good laundry facilities.

The hotel is older, and is obviously undergoing upgrades and reno's to the decor, at this time but the cleanliness of the common areas and room is superb. It is a family run enterprise, which gives it a home away from home feel. The room I am in is very spacious, with a full kitchen, apartment sized stove, oven, fridge,... More
