We stayed for two nights in Seward. We had a city facing room at the end of the hall on the 3rd floor which was quiet except for the early risers who kept letting their doors bang starting at 5:30 a.m. No fault of the hotel. The location is perfect if you plan a day cruise to the Kenai National... More

Location! Location! Location! After arriving on a bus, the walk was just a few blocks to the hotel. There are great restaurants within a few feet of the hotel and the tours of the bay board a few steps further down the block. The room was fine - on the parking lot side of the building but still quiet. The... More

Nice hotel, right on the waterfront of the harbor and close to the train depot (walking distance with luggage but they take it from the train to the hotel for you). Nice area for free continental breakfast. Not luxurious but few places in Alaska are. Clean, good location, nice views. We had a third floor (upper floor) and this was... More

Located right on the Harbor near J dock, we enjoyed a great night stay. Our room had a mountain view, but also a few of the main street and parking lot. A bit noisy early evening, but quiet later. There are rooms that look over the harbor too. Room was very clean, spacious, good size bathroom and nice towels. Breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed in late July. We booked a harbor side room which was quiet pricey but worth every dime. The view of the harbor, mountains, and glacier is stunning. We also had a small balcony that we utilized on several occasions. While this hotel sits on one end of the harbor, it is perfectly located within walking... More

We (my sister and I) stayed 2 nights and we could have stayed more. We were in a standard room with a harbor view. I didn't realize it was right on the water when we booked and was pleasantly surprised. We were on the third floor, which was fine with us. The breakfast was fine and plenty of choices. The... More

No, this hotel hasn't ever updated their rooms to have the latest in decor and bathroom design but it's so clean and comfortable that I can't complain. The bathrooms still have the faux marble counters, tile floor and fiberglass shower stall. The weird thing was my toilet paper didn't unroll but had to be unwrapped from the roll. Minor inconvenience.... More

Right on the wharf! Good beds, nice view of the wharf, nice staff, great breakfast, nice & close to restaurants & the harbor. Can see the cruise ship close by. Walking distance to the pier to watch them measure & weigh the fish caught. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is comfortable with views of the harbour on one side and the street on the other. Go for the hardour view. Handy for the railway station. Hotel staff are very accomodating and friendly. Breakfast had everything anyone could ask for and plentiful. The pancake making machine was a great novelty and tasted fresh. Would recomend as it is... More

This hotel was wonderful! The staff was friendly. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfast was exceptional with a wide selection of food and large area to eat in. The location was great. We were able to take the board walk to other businesses. (shops, restaurants, etc.) If traveling to Seward this is the place to stay!
