Arriving by ferry in the wee hours.....stop for the night ??

Would like to drive off the ferry and on our way to the lower 48......

Where would be the best place to stay after a 3 or 4 hour drive from Prince Rupert ?....

Would like to book accommodations ahead of time.....

Thank you so much for any suggestions !

Ah! A newbie!! Kristen - get in the habit of checking the date of the post. This is from 2016 and well out of date now.

Yep, we did this trip last August......

Ended up driving all the way to Prince George before we spent the night......

It is really a shame that the ferry doesn't get into Prince Rupert until 2-3 am.....Prince Rupert is not at its best this time of the morning.....drunks and or homeless folks lingering on the sidewalks......we just continued on......

The scenery after day break was indeed gorgeous and we wished we had planned the trip in reverse so that we could catch the ferry during daylight hours.......

Maybe next year !
