I came via ferry from Steward and arrived rather late. No problem for Best Western. I received a nice spacious room and clean big bathroom and every was clean and worked. Dinner at the hotels restaurant was accompanied by a nice view into the harbor. I had a perfect stay.

Choosing a Best Western you should know pretty well what to expect and that's what we got! Room good size, clean and comfortable. Well placed to stroll around harbour. Breakfast was a bit limited but usual basics there. Should be aware though that there is no lift so may need help getting luggage up the stairs but they weren't too... More

The location is good. We stayed here because we had to catch the ferry early. The room was ok, certainly nothing special. There is no elevator, so you have to carry your suitcase up the stairs. The shower was difficult to regulate: it went from ice cold to scalding hot. Can't comment on the breakfast, since we left before it... More

Came here on an escorted guided tour on 7/26. Valdez is a small fishing town (you can walk the entire town in under 45 minutes, this is not Las Vegas, Honolulu or New York City). Best Western is a worldwide chain so there are some minimum standards. One is providing a free basic breakfast (scrambled eggs or personal cheese omelets,... More

This motel was perfect for our needs. The room was very clean. It had an updated bathroom. It is right next to the water. We took a Stan Stephens boat tour and the office is right behind the hotel. We feel like it is the best place in town. Homer seems to be tied to fishing and I don't think... More

Standard chain hotel with large rooms and we had a fridge. What sets it aside is that it excels in certain areas: it is right on the harbour and next door to where you board for Stan Stephens cruises; a good restaurant with nice views of the marina; and a cheap launderette.

The location of this hotel was great! Although I was a little dissapointed with the room, it just did not have a very clean feeling and had a weird odor to it. The water in the shower was also inconsistent, constantly going back and forth between super hot and freezing cold.

The Valdez Inn is a good choice in town. Its location can't be beat. It can be busy with coach parties but our room was clean, comfy and quiet. We had a good view of the harbor. The breakfast room is a little small but there are also tables and chairs in the lobby which are nice to eat at,... More

This basic hotel is located steps from the waterfront and harbor. You can walk to places to eat, and some shops in this small town. Nothing fancy, just a basic hotel with a great location. Don't worry about views from your room, there really aren't any worthwhile Pros - very nice people, location, price, close to everything Cons - basic,... More
