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

We stayed in Seward to go out on the whale watching ship for the day, it was a very comfortable stay. The town itself was very quiet. The hotel was ok, breakfast was an extensive help yourself buffet. It would have been nice for there to be crockery rather than paper plates. All in all a good solid hotel offering.

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

Stay in Seward a few days after you cruise up from the states, or before you embark! It's a nice little town that reminds me so much of Hawaii! This hotel is really nice! We were really comfortable and would go there again!

Visited August 2014 with husband, 2 sons and father-in law, had 2 rooms each with balconies. Excellent location overlooking Seward Harbor. We were able to take pictures from balcony of cruise ships and fish being weighed and cleaned on docks from daily fishing charters. We were able to walk to dinner as well as a longer walk to grocery/liquor store... More

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Seward several times and have never been disappointed. The front desk staff is the friendliest you'll find anywhere in the world, and the rooms are large and clean. Beds are comfortable with decent linens. The hotel is situated right on the small boat harbor (yes, it literally abuts the harbor), so... More

We have stayed at this particular hotel several times over the years. This is the first time I've written a review. Our family enjoyed a very pleasant stay last weekend. Sometimes we get a harbor view which is very nice and usually costs a little more. This time we stayed on the town side and found the room clean and... More

We were very happy with our stay here. Rooms were clean and had a gorgeous view of the harbor! Staff was helpful, Breakfast was adequate. Location was excellent for participating in the Kenai Fjords tour, touring the town, and visiting the Sea Life Center. We would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!!
