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

Very big, spacious room with tall ceilings. The whirlpool is in the room with you and not seperated by a wall. I enjoyed this feature so while I was watching TV my husband could still enjoy the tub and we could still converse.

This is my first choice hotel when I travel to Valdez for work. It's clean, comfortable,& convenient. The staff is very helpful, going out of their way to help guests. The rooms are large & well-appointed. The breakfast contains enough variety to suit all manner of dietary choices.

I enjoyed every minute of my short get away to escape the big City life. It was wonderful quiet, peaceful. The Hotel is wonderfully placed by the boat harbor and has a great view and the main street you can go to the grocery store and gas station all at once outside the hotel. I needed some time to gather... More

Stayed here for 2 nights off season. The entry is "Alaskan"architecture but the wing with the rooms like any other interior motel. However, the lobby was comfy and decorated a bit like a cabin with some water view. The best views are reserved for the restaurant only which is too bad. The breakfast was hot and full with regular cold... More
