This was a last minute booking and I was very happy with it. I had room 8, which is probably the worst in the place. The window faces the street, door the common area and wifi signal didnt reach into the room. However, the room itself was great and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic. And all the staff... More

This B&B reminded us of a European hotel, with small but tidy rooms and a sunny common area for breakfast and snacking. The accomodating hosts will cook a meal for you and even do your laundry for a few dollars more. It's well situated for strolling around downtown Seward and the waterfront park, and only a couple of minutes by... More

Check in was easy and convenient (available after 5:00 pm). Tom, the proprietor was welcoming and informative. A little glitch on reservations as the website did not allow us to add a third person and had to resolve that at check in. ($16.50 per night for an extra person). Room was small but adequate. A loft for the extra person...best... More

My husband, grand daughter and I were very comfortable in our room. Tom (owner) and Sarah(manager) couldn't have been nicer. There is a huge kitchen, Laundry room, counter with assorted teas and hot chocolate and a lounge area. We were welcome to use whatever we needed. The rooms are simple but that doesn't matter to us. It was clean. If... More

Unfortunately I think we had the worse room in the inn. The window in the bed area opened to a cement wall, and had no screen, the bathroom window was large but didn't help much with circulation of the room. The head of the bed was situated under the loft with the ceiling fan at the foot of the bed.... More

We stayed here for four nights last week at the end of our Alaskan vacation. The hotel is owned by Tom and Laurie and the manager is named Sarah. All three of them were extremely nice and helpful and helped us identify hikes, restaurants and activities to do during our stay. Case in point, when we check-in we told Sarah... More

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay at A Swan Nest Inn. There are stairs to climb with luggage (it is a nest after all), which wasn't a problem for us, but might be for others. The rooms are quaint and breakfast was served in a nice homely area. The host and staff were very helpful, relaxed and... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. Sarah was very helpful and breakfast was awesome. Fresh banana cake was served. It is at walking distance from the coastline/ marina. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family

Prior to checking in I had read info on the web about the people that own it and the accommodations so when we arrived the only surprise we had were how nice Tom, the owner, and Sara, the manager, were. The rooms were small, simple, rustic and immaculately clean. There was a loft which would be great for kids. The... More

We stayed in this very friendly bed and breakfast for just one night and wished we could have stayed longer. It was clean, comfortable and good value with a great breakfast. Easy walking distance to the Sealife Centre.
