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.

Small but clean and friendly. We got the inclusive whale watching tour through Major Marine tours with the tour, overnight stay and Sea Life Center Tickets. Excellent price for all 3. The hotel was clean and in s great location to the harbor and the restaurants.

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
