Free breakfast, free unsecured WiFi. Minimal in-room amenities. Property looks pre-fab but functional. OK for passing thru, but definitely not a destination. Had difficulty making reservations (phone only) but front desk attitude and service was OK.

Just got into valdez and ask if there were any rooms for my husband and both brothers to stay in over night. She charged $130 or more just for us to get there at 3:00 am and wake up and check out at 7:30 am. As we entered she was rude about us making noise due to how old we... More

If you want a clean room, that's what you'll get. They are trying to to update. It was freshly painted.However, their web-site is very misleading. That's what I get for not going on trip advisor. However, we didn't have many options as other hotels were booked. We stayed in Valdiz for one night. I don't think I would stay there... More

Need to look at the dates of the other reviews on this site when booking a hotel. Also remember you are in Alaska when looking for your lodging. Smell of fresh paint was still apparent in the room we stayed in - nothing that bothered us. Pleasant front desk staff

Clean rooms,new carpet and paint. They are still getting things finished up. We were rebooked here for our third night in Valdez. Our first two in the Best Western. Loved being by the bay, the Glacier is down town away from the water. Very large kitchen and dining area with great choices for our continental breakfast. No fridge or coffee... More

We were assured this was a pet free lodging as we made a last minute reservation due to a change in travel plans. There wasn't much choice on short notice in Valdez. We arrived to a dog in the lobby. The lobby and hallways were worn and dingy. We checked out the room which was small and needed upgrading, but... More

Bed was lumpy to the point where I hurt in the morning. Smelled dank and moist, feels like it hasn't been updated since the pipeline was built. Service was bad considering we called ahead and got a price and reserved the room and had to fight to get the price we were told on the phone. Only amenity was breakfast,... More

Room was dirty, smelly, had broken window that would not close ( and this was Alaska!). Carpet filthy. Do not stay here ! Cost of room way too much for the poor quality of this lodging. Although, the cost was comparable to other hotels and B & B 's in the area. Even paying half f what the room rate... More

My sister in law and I stayed here in July 2013 to take a day cruise into the sound. Valdez is a charming town and the cruise really nice. This inn was clean which was probably difficult to do given the age of the place. We waited until the last minute to make reservations and so this was the last... More
