The rooms are old and smelly. At least the bathroom had been updated. Their were flies in the room. This is a last option place to book for you stay in Seward. The location is the only good thing about Taroka Inn.

We flew in to Anchorage and rented a car and drove directly to Seward. It was a nice drive through the mountains and rain. When we got to the hotel I was shocked initially because it was late and still so much daylight. When we checked in the accommodations looked sparse but as it turned out they were great. It... More

I waited too long to book a room in Seward, on a night prior to a cruise ship departure. The only other alternative was a Holiday Inn Express, at ~$300. Since I only needed a place for one night I decided to stay at Taroka for $135 plus tax. If I had to do this again, I would probably, reluctantly,... More

Great location, walk to everything downtown. Shuttle 1/2 block away for harbor, Exit Glacier and more. The motel is very old, but rooms were clean. Kitchen had everything you need to prepare and serve a meal. Our room was connected to office and very noisy when people arrived to check in. You have to go through bedroom to get to... More

Old run down rooms with a musty smell. If you don't plan ahead you may end up here, but I'd only stay as a last resort. The owner wouldn't give us an extra blanket. Room lay out is very odd in a bad way. On the plus side there is a vice and a bench grinder mounted in the lobby... More

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
