When in Barrow stay here! Clean, and friendly. Will not disappoint you. Across the street from the airport and close to dining. Free coffee in the lobby and pleasant conversation to be had. Local crafts with local legends added in for good measure. Clean, safe and close to the airport. Stay here!

My friend stayed there and highly recommended it. I was not disappointed. Considering where you are (300 plus miles north of the Arctic Circle) it's a very comfortable hotel and almost across the street from the airport. It's also within walking distance of places to eat and the Arctic Ocean. I'd definitely stay there again.

The arctic is pretty much what you'd expect - barren, cold and a bit inhospitable. However, it is shocking how nice the hotels are. We stayed at the King Eider for the fall whale hunt. Room was really well appointed, had decent amenities (Pharmacopia bathroom products, big flat screen in room and new linens.) Front desk was awesome, housekeeping was... More

This was one of the best hotels I have stayed in an amazing it was in the Arctic. The manager(Jack) was the best hotel managers I have ever met and was very helpful in a situation that went south earlier in the trip. He knew the town, he knew everything about the town. A person would be nothing less than... More

The proprietor was helpful and accommodating. Yes, you remove your shoes when entering and they provide disposable foam slippers to wear inside. Right across the street from the airport. Walking distance to the shore and the Iñupiat Heritage Center. Quiet. Barrow is dry...no alcohol allowed and they take it seriously.

It would be hard to understand why anyone would stay elsewhere in Barrow. The Alaska Airlines terminal is an extremely smallish building. From back to front you are walking about twenty yards. As you exit the front of the building the King Eider is across the street. And the street is narrow. The hotel itself lacks the neon, concrete and... More

This hotel is literally across the street from the airport. It's clean and well-maintained. It's also super quiet and I could hardly hear any noise from the airport. The manager Jack is nice and friendly. We enjoyed our time there.

This Motel was cleaner than 90% of the Hotels I have reviewed. The staff is very efficient and friendly. Satellite TV. Free Local calls. You must remove your shoes when you enter the hotel. Walking distance from the airports. but Barrow is easy to get around in.

Loved staying here while visiting barrow. Compared to the other hotels in the area, the King Eider is the best. It is modern, well kept, comfortable and right across the street from the airport. The customer service is superb. The front desk manager immediately helped us out when our tour operator cancelled on us without warning. He found us another... More
