We stayed for two nights in the family suite. It fit our needs perfectly - we had a family of 6 and the four bedroom suite was perfect for us. It is an older property - but the room was clean and spacious. It had a slight odor when we first went in but after we opened the windows -... More

This past weekend- My husband and I tried to book a room for 2 nights at the Harborview for a June Seward trip. Unfortunately, our computers and the hotel's website were having problems communicating. I send an email explaining the situation. And being a little anxious- I ended up confirming a stay at another local hotel. Today, I received a... More

The room was average but clean and comfortable. We stayed 4 nights and were totally comfortable here. Fridge and microwave were in the room and wifi available. The room was clean and had all that we needed for the little time spent inside. Alaska is all about the outdoors and we selected lodging for sleeping only and not relaxing inside.... More

Stayed 2 nights here over Labor Day weekend. Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. We arrived by train, thus no car, but walked from here to downtown Seward, restaurants, museums, marina for boat tours, free shuttle bus every half-hour. With taxes, we paid $150/night. We were in Seward a full week primarily for the boat tours, hiking, restaurants & museums.... More

We stayed one night at the Harborview Inn in July. The room was average. We had a bad experience with the cleanliness, but when we reported it to the front desk the girl came with a vacuum and took care of it within minutes, even taking pictures so she could bring it to the attention of the cleaning staff. Not... More

This hotel smells funny, has a phone in the room that does not work, and we can hear EVERYTHING that is going on outside the room from other guests' conversations to traffic. Very disappointed for the price.

Plus-Comfortable beds, great desk clerk Minus - Penny pinching owners who avoid normal maintenance: Smoke detectors of doubtful functionality, outlets worn out, double pane windows fogged up inside, TP holders that don't (and no spare rolls), shower plumbing completely loose inside the walls, phones and WiFi that don't work, ratty and stained carpeting, poor sound insulation in walls, and painting...

This motel was located close to both downtown Seward and the harbor. Rooms were small and a bit old fashioned, but very clean! We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. With nice weather you can sit outside on the balcony. Internet in the rooms did not work too well, but the closer to the office you moved... More

After our cruise, the free city shuttle dropped us off at the hotel, where we were allowed to check in very early (10 AM), giving us plenty of time to have a cup of coffee and get to our Kenai Fjords cruise at the harbor. We could walk everywhere from this location, and we also had a very clean and... More
