There are not very many choices for hotels in Valdez, so the Keystone doesn't have too much competition, but of you are looking for a clean reasonably priced place to stay it is fine. We waited too late to book for the busy August season and so many places we called were totally booked. The Keystone looks like it is... More

The problem with Valdez is that there are limited choices of where to stay. We drove up to the Keystone Hotel and it looked like a bunch of old tin barracks welded together. However, it was clean and the bed was comfortable and we got our best night sleep there (with our earplugs in). The staff is nice and helpful.... More

The staff at the Keystone are really friendly and helpful. It's located right around the corner from the ferry terminal so you can't beat that location. The hotel itself is very average, however it's moderately priced and clean. Those are two of my most important criteria. There's a laundry room and they serve a continental breakfast.

The title above is what I look for in a hotel. This place had all four covered. The rooms are small but I don't know who would spend a lot of time in a hotel room when in the beautiful area of Valdez. We only were looking for somewhere to sleep. The room was extremely clean, the beds comfortable and... More

We looked all over Valdez for a hotel that we could afford over the 4th of July weekend. The search took about 5 minutes. The hotel was nothing more than a converted man camp which had been made into a hotel. But hey, the TV worked as did the remote, It was extremely clean and I'm totally serious when I... More

So you need a place to stay in Valdez that's basic, not fancy, can get a good night's sleep ... well this just might be it. However, if you are staying some place for a hotel experience (e.g., pool, view, nice lounge, restaurant, or just about anything else), look elsewhere. The interesting thing is that this hotel is constructed in... More

The hotel is nothing to look at and it does at times feel like I'm staying in a freighter container. But who cares when you pay less then half of what you would pay for a hotel like Best Western. The hotel room was very clean, the shower was good, the towels were soft and the bed very clean. The... More

We have stayed at the Keystone in Valdez twice so far. It has been perfect for us. We only need a place at night to sleep, shower in the morning and off we go to enjoy Prince Willam Sound! It is very clean, friendly staff, and a limited conntinnetal breakfast. On Memorial weekend the snow was still covering the first... More

This hotel is simple but clean. We were allowed to view a room ahead of booking it. The room we were shown had a double and a twin in it and was quite small. We asked for a queen and we were told we could have a king for the same price as the room we were shown. The room... More
