Really nothing special to report, except that we were very happy to find a reasonable room with the help of the Valdez Visitor Center. Especially, after in the internet, everything seemed to be fully booked. Turns out that this hotel and others prefer not to work with major hotel and booking providers. Anyways, this hotel has a relatively, very nice... More

Great location right on the harbor and walking distance to restaurants and museums. The attached restaurant and free breakfast was excellent. The room was very clean and fairly spacious. Room 101 (or 201, but there is no elevator) has the best view.

The location is convenient and the price is reasonable. But, from there things go down hill. During an Alaska "heat wave" we entered a stuffy room that was 78 degrees. With window open and fan on high all night, we got it down to 71 by morning. Maybe it was the heat, but we found this property the least accommodating... More

Amenities in the room are adequate for 1 one-night-stay. Room is clean, but the corridor might smell fresher. Front desk lady is patient and accommodating. Breakfast is above average with lots of selections. Wifi is good too.

Thrilled to be back in Valdez and the Harbor Inn. The rooms are clean, staff friendly and helpful and there is a great restaurant and bar on the premises. I have stayed here many times over the years. It is comforting after a long journey to be so well greeted. Scott, the manager, and his staff are most helpful and... More

This hotel is clean and the property has an attractive appearance. It is near the Alaska State ferry terminal and the harbor. It is convenient and competitively priced for Alaska. Wi-Fi was good. However, there a few issues . There is no elevator,so be sure and ask for a first floor room if you cannot carry luggage up a long... More

We would recommend your hotel to anyone traveling to Valdez, Alaska. Our entire family traveled to Alaska and had a great. Your hotel staff made our stay very comfortable while we were there. The weather was great when we drove to the harbor and we were able to sit outside while we at one of your local restaurants.

The Best Western in Valdez was a great find - clean, comfortable room, centrally located and a great breakfast included. They have laundry facilities but they were only available from 9a-9p (which was too limited for our use) however the staff did recommend alternatives.

We stayed here one night and it was easy to get to. The rooms were clean, although had a strange cleaning solution smell. My room had a nice view of 2 Coast Guard ships. Probably the best hotel in town. Staff was friendly. We didn't have breakfast, but it smelled really good.
