Prince Rupert


Hotel room

Prince Rupert has one chain hotel and 10 independently-owned hotels, motels and inns dispersed within its downtown, and is home to the only four-star hotel in Northwest BC.

The establishments differ in price and location, and overall are comfortable and clean but basic. A great thing about accommodations in Prince Rupert is most are pet-friendly for a few dollars extra, though some do require a crate for the pets and/or have size limits.

B&Bs & Hostels

Several bed and breakfasts scattered throughout the residential areas of the city. These provide a more intimate atmosphere but are not central. Most however, are still in walking distance of downtown.

Prince Rupert has two hostels for budget travellers. One is closer to Cow Bay, the main tourist hub, while the other is near Main Street.

Camping & RV

Camping and RV options in the city are limited. There is a site near town that hosts RVs and tents; two other sites are both a 15-minute drive east from town. One is located within the First Nations community of Port Edward; the other is in a small provincial park. During the day, RVs should park in Cow Bay. There's one specific parking lot that is RV accessible; check with the Visitor Centre in the Atlin Terminal for directions.

Fishing Lodges & Cabins

Another option is to stay at an exclusive fishing lodge or remote cabin. These are usually fly- or boat-in only, and require reservations far in advance.
