We were looking for a reasonable and convenient place for our Kenai Fjords tour. This was just the right place. It is a bit of a walk to the harbor, but we had a car. Just perfect for us.The girls at the desk were helpful and directed us to restaurants and advice about the Northern lights.

I stay just for one night with my son (on our way to Homer) and the place is very comfortable and with a very nice breakfast; our waiter was very informative as well and it is a located in a beautiful setting

We stayed here 4 or so nights in July 2015. The hotel is very basic, which worked fine for us leaving for the day and just having a place to crash at night. The room was a little on the small size, but has all of the things that you need: bed, fridge, bathroom, place to put luggage, and a... More

This hotel is extremely basic. It is clean at least but other than that not great. The rooms are old and outdated, and not a very nice view from the rooms. Also Not in the middle of the town or the wharf. No breakfast offered. It is definitely low end.

So many things wrong with this property. The main problem was the price. Yes, it was high season so what do you expect? But no fridge or microwave, lukewarm shower, limited WiFi (mostly not working), saggy bed, and no view does not add up to $170 per night. As another reviewer has mentioned, the front desk closes at 8pm, so... More

Overall hotel experience here was very poor. Front desk closes at 8PM so no one was there for any services or assistance. Our phone was broken in our "Apartment" so we couldnt call anyone with any questions or for assistance. No one mentioned when we checked in that there would be no cleaning services in our room, so we didnt... More

Spacious room, good-sized bed, good furniture, clean and comfortable. It's on a main road but was pretty quiet. The location is handy to restaurants and shops (about 10 - 15 minutes on foot). There was no 'harbor view' but there was plenty to do out and about! Handy to Kenai Fjords ferry terminal.

The room was a good size. Thank God we were on the top floor. The walls are so thin you could hear conversations from a few rooms over and with it being light all the time outside during the summer season people were coming and going at all hours. We did have good tv channels. The tub felt like it... More

When we started booking our Alaska accommodations we found that there were very few "chains" to depend on for a good nights sleep. So I searched the internet and found the Harborview Inn, not sure of what we would find. we were pleasantly surprised, this Inn seemed to have been recently renovated, It was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed... More
