I visited Prince Rupert with my family, we stayed here for 2 nights, it is a nice hotel to stay, comfy with clean rooms. Its restaurant is waterfront, its food is very good. I would recommend this hotel.

My first exposure to The Crest was Miranda at the front desk for our reservation. She did everything perfectly AND went above and beyond for us. Our room is spectacular, so comfortable with views of snow capped mountains, the serene ocean and quaint town of Prince Rupert. Our bed is great quality with tons of pillows and very nice bedding.

My first exposure to The Crest was Miranda at the front desk for our reservation. She did everything perfectly AND went above and beyond for us. Our room is spectacular, so comfortable with views of snow capped mountains, the serene ocean and quaint town of Prince Rupert. Our bed is great quality with tons of pillows and very nice bedding. As well as being spotless clean the decor is a lovely boutique ambiance. This place is unbelievably quiet and allowed us to get the rest we needed. The pub and restaurant food and staff are exceptional and they serve Starbucks coffee in the restaurants. We utilized the fitness facility including the steam room and hot tub. This area is gorgeous and very appealing for working out or relaxing in the steam room or hot tub. Super clean fitness room/steam room too, with everything you need. The residents of the town itself are very friendly as we visited many shops and services. We will back back every time we are visiting Prince Rupert. Read less

Hotel is decent. Very old and dated but not bad for the value. Depending on the room you get, they can be small and some don't have AC. The restaurant downstairs is really good but can be pricey. Overall this place is decent, but I don't think it's worth the awesome rating that many people give it.

The Crest is an elegant hotel where you can get rooms that are right on the waterfront.

The Crest is an elegant hotel where you can get rooms that are right on the waterfront. Our room had a nice window seat complete with binoculars so that we could see the whales, ships and birds from our room. The furnishings were nice and elegant but the room was a little tight and pricey. There was parking out from but not a good canopy to get out of the rain to unload luggage in front of the motel. Restaurant was very good and the staff was friendly. There is a casino and sports bar next door. Location is excellent for walking all over Prince Rupert. The only way we could cool the room down was keeping the windows open (no screens) and hoping that the rain would not come in. Read less
