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

This was a great spot in that it was only about 2 blocks from the harbor - which is where you'd want to be closest to. We also jogged down to the end of the road towards the "downtown" and then around on the seaside paved trail. There might have been things going on down that direction, but we loved... More

We stayed at the Harborview Inn during the July 4th holiday and celebration in Seward. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was very basic. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. As far as the price goes it would be difficult to compare since rooms are at a premium during the 4th and... More

We stayed for one night . Its a small and neat place so do not expect anything fancy. However it is very neat (compare to other expensive stays in Alaska) and well maintained. The lady at front desk -"Mary" is very nice to chat to , We spoke to her for some time to learn more about local life in... More

The service was very good. The place is very basic and not terribly comfortable. We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in Seward and this about what I expected. The area is very expensive so it is a good, basic place.

The inn was clean and everything was functioning. Check in was fine. The room was very basic - no fridge, no shampoos, no restaurant, no breakfast, no biscuits, no microwave - basically a bed and some towels. Now it's Seward, and everything is expensive, but this was the most expensive hotel we styed at anywhere in Alaska, and it was... More

We made the reservation for the Harborview Inn on the internet. When we arrived to check in, the reservation was there and we had a room on the first floor right by our parking spot. The lady at the front desk was very friendly, courteous and efficient. The whole check-in procedure took less than 1 minute. The room was very... More

No hot water, no repairs, excuses, absolutely nothing done to help! Oh and what Harbor view? View of a highway, gravel parking lot and rundown house next door. You'd be better off sleeping in your car.

We come to Seward every year for our autistic son's birthday. He loves the quiet and security of the Sea View apartments. With a kitchen to cook in I am able to make healthy meals and skip the stress of restaurants with kids. We love the playground down the street, the yard to play in and all the bunnies that... More
