I cannot review a stay at this hotel as we didn't make it that far. I had booked a room here for a trip to Valdez w my mom while she was here visiting. I had confirmed they were pet friendly. Told them to size of my 2 dogs. Was told no issue. I also called prior to leaving Fairbanks... More

My husband has stayed here on occasion for business. Most recently there was a misunderstanding re: a reservation. When he called to resolve the issue, the girl at the front desk stated, "no one is in charge right now.." When asked to speak to the manager she stated, "he really doesn't have a set schedule, you might reach him around... More

We stayed just for one night. The service was excellent. We got there a little early, but they had our rooms. Breakfast was busy, but they kept it well stocked. Rooms were a little small, but had updated furnishings. Would definitely recommend this hotel. I just wish the lounge/restaurant would stay open a little later.

Best place in town, I wish they had more rooms because they get booked 100% during the summer months! The staff is always helpful and very professional, but not stuffy. Also the most comfortable beds, i have major back problems so a good bed is critical. I would not be able to work the hours I do if not for... More

I can't say I miss the best western... We stayed there for a week and it quickly became a frustrating place to stay! One day our room was not made as I had left a T shirt on my bed and it's apparently "illegal" to touch it! Lazy staff of you ask me. Receptionist just shrugged her shoulders and said... More

After a long drive and challenging weather I walked in looking for a room. I received prompt courteous service and was given a nice harbour view room. We ended up staying for 2 nights. Breakfast was convenient. Check out efficient. Really good value for a kingsize bed room.

I only had one night to enjoy this location due to business restraints, so I knew I had to be close to the harbor. I was so pleased when I looked out the window to a lovely water view! Anytime I return to Valdez and need accommodations, this will be the place for me. Only issue (for me) was dealing... More

While this hotel is not one of the newest on the planet, the old building is made up for by the absolutely stunning views from any room. Since Valdez is pretty much surrounded 360 degrees by mountains, you can't lose. There is a restaurant which is connected physically, but that's not part of the hotel. I will review that separately.

I'm not sure if hotels are the number 1 priority in Valdez, so the Best Western here was pretty nice. The front desk staff seemed a bit confused, but they took care of me quickly. I had been on a 7+ hour cruise, and so was honestly tired at that point. I got to the room, which was relatively nice.... More
