It is definitely just a "hotel" but the rooms are good sized, staff is friendly and the breakfast was pretty good. Don't expect a life changing experience here, but it has a great location and is fairly priced.

We were very impressed with this Best Western. The staff was very friendly & the check in was accurate & quick. Our room had a water view, was very clean & the bed was super comfortable. The room was very quite too. We ate at the restaurant, seated right away & the service was good plus the food was very... More

We booked this place last year - over eight months notice - and specifically asked for a twin room since I am travelling with my adult son, and turned up to be told there was only a Queen room available. I pointed out that a twin room had been requested and acknowledged by the hotel, but there was nothing the... More

The room was pretty comfy and clean, but we got a room that's very close to both the stairway and the staff supply room, so both late night and early morning as people come and go, the place is very noisy. My biggest complaint about this place is the staff! At around 7 or 7:30AM, someone knocked on the door,... More

This is probably the best place to stay in Valdez, especially if you are taking a tour with Stan Stephens Cruise (a must) because it is right next to the hotel. The room was standard, clean and comfortable with extras such as a frig. I give them extra credit for having two luggage racks, a rare thing in motels even... More

Best Western Harbor Inn is a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy the beautiful sights of Valdez, Alaska. Very convenient location with walking distance to the harbor and accessing charter and sight seeing services in the area.

The desk staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of good advice and recommendations for local activities when we asked them. The breakfast was terrible. Advertised as 'Full Breakfast" the only hot food was luke-warm scrambled eggs and unidentified 'meat' patties. Plastic utensils and paper plates made it seem cheap, but the price didn't reflect this!

This place worked out great. The beds are not huge, but there was room for a roll away. It's right on the harbor. After checking in we walked and watched fishermen bringing in their catch. The staff was very helpful, reccommending restaurants for us. We were heading out on the early ferry, and the hotel has coffee, fruit, etc. available... More

All's well with the exception of smell of the tide. Know you can't control that tide, but man was it stinky. Think it was only the time of year, spawning fish. Enjoyed the Lounge, great view, good food. Very comfortable beds!

There are quite a few bunnies that roam around the property. Overall our visit was very nice. It is located near pretty much anything you would want to walk to in Valdez, the cruises leave right out the front door, the rooms were very clean, and the continental breakfast was awesome. The only complaint is that the walls are pretty... More
