We had a family trip to Alaska and stayed two nights in Seward. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and informative. The location to the sea life center was a bonus. Several restaurants in nearby area.

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay here. The outside is not very attractive, but our room was super. There was a loft for our 2 boys which they loved. The breakfast room has a superb view of the harbor. They made our breakfast to order. Egg, Canadian bacon, and fresh baked pastries. Delicious. The location is very convenient... More

Our family of four spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are rather small, but efficiently designed to provide room for our "stuff" . Our two teenaged boys managed very well in the loft. Owners are friendly and helpful.

very nice little b&b friendly staff makes you feel at home. Awesome dog that stays there owned by the owners. Not a lot to do at the place other than talk to guests and staff in the dining/living area. And for the four of us it was a little "cozy" and tight. A queen bed for the parents and two... More

We were there in late May 2014. It is a cute set up with Great Hospitality. Sarah made us breakfast daily ( great sourdough pancakes) and was able to book activities and answer our many questions.Our room overlooked town. Great gathering area where we were able to spend time with people from all over the world.

My family of 4 stayed here Jun 4, for 2 nights. I will start by saying from the time I booked the reservation months ago to the morning I checked out the service was great. Sarah took the time to answer all my questions, and she booked a tour for us. Like previous reviews have noted there are stairs, the... More

Not the best looking of B&Bs but its the great service provided by the people who run it that makes the difference. Sarah was a great host and personally cooked a sumptuous warm breakfast every morning for my family of 3. She is also well connected to all the key attractions in Seward and can offer to make bookings and... More

Tom is interesting. This B&B is near the South side of town where there are stores, restaurants, and The Sea Life Center. Guests may take a free shuttle about 1 mile or so into town to the grocery, harbor, and other shops. On Resurrection Bay (a short walk from the Inn), guests may often see Sea Otters. As far as...

The owners were fantastic! They have super clean rooms with great views. They offer free wifi and washer/dryers available for $5 a load. They offer complimentary hot tea (TONS of flavors) along with coffee and water in the kitchen/lounge area. There was always a new log getting put in the fire in that room... So nice. Included breakfast was homemade... More

This place is small, also smells bad in the room. We can not access wifi at our room and nobody helps us, I asked the front desk several times and the waitress was rude. I will not stay this place in the future.
