We stayed 2 nights at the inn, very close to the airport, but not noisy. The room was clean and decent size, I like the bathroom especially as the shower (is it not just a tube with shower curtain, it is more like a shower cubicle). The inn has free wifi, and a lot of tv channels. Jack (front desk)... More

We arrived expecting to stay at The Top Of The World Hotel but found it had burnt down. We ended up at the King Eider Inn. Jack, on the front desk, was a legend and helped us so much. Although we couldn't stay there the first night, he helped us find somewhere to stay and we stayed at The King... More

I spent the weekend at this hotel with my husband and we were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. We didn't have high expectations, but the rooms were clean and quiet and the owners/operators were very nice and helpful. You have to take your shoes off in the lobby, but that helps keep everything clean and dry. The mattresses were a... More

Very nice, great place to stay in Barrow. For such a remote place this hotel is the best. The family that runs it does a great job with upkeep etc. Have stayed here at least once or twice a year for the past 15 years and have never had a bad night. Keep up the good work!

If this hotel was in the middle of Seattle, I would probably only give it 3 dots at most. It's not the Four Seasons. However, for rural Alaska this is in incredible place to stay. For starters, it is walking distance to/from the airport, even with a good amount of luggage. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The hotel... More

King Eider Inn is a alternative to stay while in Barrow. Conveniently located directly across from the airport. The manager and his family are very friendly and run a nice place. The outside doesn't look that impressive, but then again, nothing looks impressive on the outside in Barrow. The inside is very cozy - nice lobby, warm and comfortable. Rooms... More

My wife and I spent one night at the King Eider Inn. It's an easy walk from the airport, just across the street and down a few hundred feet. The staff are friendly and helpful, offering suggestions on where to eat, and touring services. The rooms are clean and modern. Part of the reason for that is that the hotel... More

I called at the last minute and was able to book the last room. Very close to the airport, actually just across the street. Anyone who dares to venture to this out of the way piece of the U.S. would enjoy their stay here. Very clean, beautiful rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Just make sure to take your shoes...

I agree with photographer Jeffrey Sward <www.jeffreysward.com> who says, "When in Barrow, Alaska, be sure to stay at the King Eider Inn. Just a few steps from the airport, the King Eider Inn offers hospitality and comfort." So true! Don't let the proximity to the airport scare you away: The King Eider is peaceful and quiet. The excitement of watching... More

I just spent three days weathered in at the King Eider Inn in Barrow and had a great stay. Rooms very clean and comfortable, was informed by the staff that the strong storm winds we were having (-8f with 30kt winds for wind chill factor of about -35f) would often cause the natural gas room heaters to quit. Instructed how... More
