Great value, great location. Both BW phone reservation center (Phoenix) and local staff (Valdez) were helpful, accommodating, and thorough. Good price. Great value, excellent location. Friendly crew. It was a good stay in Valdez.

The location cannot be beat. Right down in the heart of all the action. You can walk to the restaurants. The room was average size and clean. No air conditioner but the fan worked well with the windows open. Breakfast looked good, however, we did not stay to eat. Very quiet.

We spent 3 nights in late June/early July to visit this lovely part of our favorite vacation destination--Alaska. After a nice drive from the Glenallen area including some driving rain in the gorgeous Thompson Pass, we arrived tired and hungry. The desk staff were friendly and helpful and we were soon in our clean, fairly spacious room with a jacuzzi... More

Stayed here for one night .Typical Best Western which is a good thing. There is a bar attached to the hotel which is quite lively but can be a bit noisy when People leave at closing time but as we were some of them didn't bother us. Good barbers on sight. Breakfast not much to write home about.

Despite their website letting us book a room for the night. We began our travels to Valdez from Fairbanks only to to be called and told they didn't have a room for us. Nothing they could do and sorry. Everything else is full so we had return home or camp without camping gear. What kind of business sells you a... More

Hi folks, The Best Western Valdez is a good place to stay. The rooms are clean and the service is prompt and it is in walking distance from most everything. There is a downside however. Right in the middle of "High Summer" tourist season you find out that it doesn't have Air Conditioning. We were told to open the window... More

We prefered a B+B but could not find one, so chose Best Western. It was OK. It was not exciting , but clean and over looked the water. The room was quite big. There is no lift in the hotel . It did not disturb us being on the first floor and having very little to carry, Breakfast was bad.

Breakfast was fairly standard for a Best Western, room was good. The only thing preventing a higher score would be the welcome at the front desk. Nobody was rude, but we weren't made to feel welcome- it was just going through the check list, including "sign here to say that you won't damage the room". Definitely no sense of "... More

My impression is that - literally at the end of the highway in Valdez - the attitude at this hotel is "take it or leave it." I reported multiple problems - including an overheated room that would not cool down and a bathtub that wouldn't drain - and the problems were never addressed. In fact, when a business colleague who... More

After 10 years I was back to Valdez and even back to the very same hotel. The property hasn't undergone any major renovation, but is still in decent shape. Check-in was OK, although not very warm and friendly. I asked for a top floor room in my advance reservation, but was assigned a ground floor one. Room was OK, not... More
