Great location, amazing breakfast, beautiful views of the Marina, and the best pillow score. Our traveling guest wanted to buy it from the hotel it was so great! Loved the cookies at 8pm and enjoying them around the fire place lobby. Pure joy in this stay. People here are very kind and want to set you up for success. Thank... More

Clean, quiet, and well run, this is a nice place to stay, with decent breakfast and warm cookies at night..Very convenient to boat tours if you are taking any. Get a harbor view room for nicest experience..

The hotel is right on the harbor. Just a few minutes walk to take glacier tours, fishing, and other water activities. About a mile to the real downtown Seward. There are several restaurants close to the hotel. The hotel has free parking and a free breakfast that provides great value for the area.

The beds are amazing, with lots of pillows. The location at the harbor is great. Beautiful mountain views and it's just a short drive or nice walk to downtown. Amazing views and a great breakfast to boot. The staff is very accommodating and very friendly.

I love this place especially the location near the harbor you can have either harbor view or mountain view, great staff, I always go to this hotel because it's near the main road(s) and near the harbor my visit to Seward is always going to be this hotel

This hotel had clean rooms and friendly as usual. It's not really worth the stay / price if you don't get a harbor view room (which is more expensive), unless you just don't care. The breakfast was awful the only good thing was the fruit, everything else didn't taste so great...but hey it was "free".

Checked in for a one night stay. Room had a great view of the small boat harbor. Around 6pm, a very loud family with stomping and yelling children checked in above us. Finally called the front desk who did the best they could but it seemed to be an issue of poor sound insolation. Tried to switch to a similar... More

My husband and I go down to Seward usually for his work in the winter. And we always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Their staff is friendly, In the evening they serve warm cookies. Which I like because we go to dinner and that is our dessert when we get back. Rooms are clean, we stayed on the harbor... More
