I'm glad we found this hotel. It was very clean and close to the downtown area. Our "room" was more like a small apartment. There was a small kitchen with a full sized fridge/oven/microwave/coffee maker. There are some dishes and utensils. We needed more bowls and cutlery. There was a pullout sofa bed and a queen sized bed in the... More

This motel has surprisingly great views of Resurrection bay and surrounding peaks. The beds are really comfortable and the location is perfect. From here we walked the whole peninsula shps and restaurants. Just two blocks from Sea Life Center

I actually lived here while going to school in Seward for several months and found it was a semi-decent place. We paid $1,000 a month, which isn't too bad for motel style accommodations, but the price you pay does reflect the quality of accommodations you get. Everything is extremely dated from the wood paneling, to the old carpet, to the... More

You can be taken apart from the appearance (everything is old and well used), but it's clean and functional. Taroka Inn Motel is near all you need in Seward. Last but not least it's cheap for the current prices in Seward. Don't be fouled by the appearance!

OK so not a chic or quaint place by any stretch of the imagination but it is cheap, well located and functioning. We stayed there by chance because we booked last minute on arrival into Seward. From the outside the place looks run down but the beds were comfortable and clean as was the bathroom. Within walking distance there was... More

We called every single hotel/motel in the Seward magazine and they were alll fully booked. Taroka was the only place that had vacancy. The eccentric owner was pleasant enough, but the Taroka Inn is thoroughly run down. The room was acceptably clean and had a good location, and was definitely low-cost, but I wouldn't stay here again.

The property itself is a little old and in need of renovation but it had a full kitchen and was very comfortable. And James the owner was super friendly and helpful. I had a cold that came on very quickly while we were there and James made sure that I had everything I needed. He actually reminded us of the... More

We stayed at at the Taroka Inn for a couple nights while in Seward. The owner was super friendly and very helpful. It's markedly cheaper than the places up by the boat harbor, which ended up being nice and allowed to walk the block over to downtown and have a night out and meet people. The trade off for the...

This may not look like much from the outside, but it was clean, had a kitchen, and had a cheerful manager. Compared to the price of the other places to stay in town, this was a pretty good value. The kitchen was helpful as well.

Very friendly host. Reasonable value. Great location. Unfortunately the rest of the place just isn't up to par. In need of major renovations. An OK option if everything else is booked, wouldn't relish staying here again though. Stayed for 4 nights before picking up a cruise.
