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

Just spent a week in Apartment C below hotel....thank you Mary!!! Had an action packed time....Seward has so much...and Harborview was the perfect place to base out of. Great staff....easy and convenient to small boat harbor, old town..watching salmon fishing on the high tide....all right at your doorstep...and shuttle bus right there too. Don't go to Seward looking for fancy... More

My wife and I were supposed to stay here for 3 nights; we decided it would be better to leave and head home then spend the third night. The hotel is ok, but in my opinion it is overpriced. The room was very small, the mattresses were extremely uncomfortable, and the accommodations were subpar. It's right on main-street so all... More

Reasonable price and reasonable facility. It's just Inn-like facility. Very small space. Just in the main road. Very close to cruise harbor at a walking distance. Good locatiom to take a walk along the harbor and access any restaurant and supermarket.
