What really made this place shine was the wonderful staff. They are super friendly and helpful, very welcoming and accommodating. The place is old - that's why they call it "historic" - so expect that. It was very clean. We had one of the rooms with a private bath, and it was a very small bathroom, but it worked just... More

I made this reservation by email, the night before I arrived and although I asked for the details of the room I did not receive them, nor called to find out. This mean I have my share of the blame... When I arrived, the friendly young lady was running between the bar and the reception. She did what she could.... More

Like some of the other reviewers, we had a bit of an adventure actually getting our room but once that all got worked out, things were good. We had a room with 2 double beds and a private bath. The bathroom is small and the stall shower is tiny (as in it was difficult to bend down to wash your... More

This place is pretty old and tired but is in the process of undergoing a refurbishment so by the time you read this things might be improved. The owners are very nice and the resident dog "Copper" is a sweetie so you will feel very welcome here. The location is just up from the wharf so it is a nice... More

Fort Seward Lodge is on Mud Bay Road, downtown in Fort Seward.......the location shown on the map is on the opposite side of the peninsula is about 7 miles away from where it really is...... Hopefully TripAdvisor can fix their mapping system, which so often does not work well here in rural Alaska.......

The owner assured us he would provide pick-up service at the Alaska ferry terminal. After an hour's wait and four telephone calls (we only got answering machines), we gave up and caught a ride with one of his competitors. When we arrived at the hotel, the place was completely locked up. Other guests who were leaving told us we should... More

Our favorite hotel during our two week tour of Alaska, BC, and Yukon. Absolutely stunning views, charming and very generous staff who went out of their way for us more than once during our stay at the Lodge. My husband, baby and I came on foot to Haines after taking the ferry. We found the Lodge here on Trip Advisor... More
