We had to book here as the bed and breakfast we booked at (a year in advance) cancelled our three rooms last minute over their lack of understanding of COVID restrictions.

We booked in here and are all glad we did. Rooms were clean and quiet. Restaurant was excellent. The staff was pleasant and the service was prompt. I needed a plug in for our vehicle and the manager went out of his way to help me. It’s a little pricy for what you get, but it was a low stress stay! Read less

My husband and. I recently stayed here for 3 nights. Booked a king room city view. Upon arriving at the guest counter the staff was not very friendly. The room was quite small bathroom even smaller. It was extremely stuff in the room so quickly turned on air conditioner which made crackling noises when on. Kept me up during the night. Asked front desk to have maintenance look at it, never knew if they did or not since was noisy next night. Service was good in the lounge and restaurant and friendly service. The front Reception. Checkin desk was once again extremely rude and unfriendly upon check out. For a hotel that speaks of service other than the restaurant the service was horrible. If you must stay definitely get a water view since city view is the parking lot and lots of noise early 5 o’clock mornings with everyone heading out fishing. I personally would try a different hotel since for over $200 a night there wasn’t anything special. Read less

My stay this week from Tuesday to Thursday was as great as they usually are each month. Views of the ocean are wonderful and although I was facing the opposite way this month, the view out the front is something to behold. Sunny blue sky and snow dusted hills in the distance. Kamara, I hope I got that right, at the front desk is wonderful and I… Read more
My stay this week from Tuesday to Thursday was as great as they usually are each month. Views of the ocean are wonderful and although I was facing the opposite way this month, the view out the front is something to behold. Sunny blue sky and snow dusted hills in the distance. Kamara, I hope I got that right, at the front desk is wonderful and I received exceptional service from Trevor in Charleys lounge. Covid precautions are in place and well thought out. I always stay here. It’s more than what my company allows but it is worth it to pay the difference. Nothing wrong with their rates, competitive with the other limited options. Can’t wait to bring my family one day. Read less

I stayed at this hotel while in Prince Rupert for business. It was a very nice hotel but the views were outstanding. It was quiet and comfortable. The restaurant had great food and the staff were very friendly.

The Crest is beautifully situated with views of Hecate Strait. The public spaces are nicely decorated. Our room had two beds overlooking the water. The furnishings and decor were lovely but the room was not at all spacious and the bathroom the tiniest ever experienced over many years of travel.

The Crest is beautifully situated with views of Hecate Strait. The public spaces are nicely decorated. Our room had two beds overlooking the water. The furnishings and decor were lovely but the room was not at all spacious and the bathroom the tiniest ever experienced over many years of travel. It had a pedestal sink so no counter to put anything on and only one tiny towel rack. The hotel is a short walk to Cow Bay where there are lovely shops and restaurants.The local artisans co-op had some beautiful reasonably priced items. The fresh fish at Dolly’s Fish restaurant was so good we went twice. Read less
