We were here for three nights, two on our way to Haida Gwaii, and one on our way home. We had asked for a harbour view, and on our 2 night stay, we enjoyed a glass of wine sitting in comfortable chairs watching the harbour activity. A very comfortable room, and super friendly staff. The included continental breakfast was as... More

Only three floors high but a nice hotel. Had a bad start as on the first night it was extremely hot in the room and there was only a very small window to open. The air conditioning thermostat didn't work as it was hanging off the wall. When awakening the next morning I could hardly breathe (I am athsmatic) and... More

This is a cute hotel with very clean, modern rooms. We found the rooms rather uncomfortably warm with only a small window to open and no air conditioning. They do provide fans but if you like a cooler room I'd suggest that you skip this hotel until they get air-conditioning units put in (which there is a rumor that they... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at Inn on the Harbour. Our unusually warm weather has created a challenge in keeping some of our rooms cool.

We stayed here en route to Haida Gwai. This is a refurbished hotel. I recommend paying extra for the harbour view rooms however you can sit in the main floor lounge and get a nice view of the harbour. No on site restaurant. The desk did give us an excellent recommendation for dinner. Breakfast is included and has a nice... More

I only gave the place 1 star because it was impossible to give it a zero. Like a previous reviewer, my family stayed prior to taking the ferry down to Port Hardy. We took a family room. There were 2 ineffective fans which re-circulated the already stifling air. I have never before been in a hotel room where I could... More

This hotel was very nice. We stayed one night on 7/29/16. The staff was very friendly and helped us find a great seafood restaurant. Prince Rupert is a bit tricky to navigate. They also gave us a room with a view of the harbor which was extra nice. The room was clean and comfortable and affordable. It was also very... More

We came to PR because we had to, in order to catch the ferry. It was raining, just like it was 18 years ago when we last visited, when we had to in order to get off a ferry. Did it ever stop raining in between? I think probably not. We pulled into the car park and overheard drunks shouting... More

I'm sorry that your visit to Prince Rupert was disappointing although it sounds as if you were here only to take the ferry and would not have come otherwise. It is unfortunate that it rained while you were here as we have had a beautiful sunny summer for the most part. I doubt that you expect our property to accept... More

We overnighted here and had a nice room overlooking the harbor. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was the usual quality for the free breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance of the train/bus station and the wharf area. Accommodations are a bit rustic this far North in Canada but this hotel is one of the best.
