This hotel is a franchise operated by a professional hotel management company for a private ownership company. It sounds complicated and a recipe for disaster but it exactly the opposite. With a Holiday Inn Express one expects a standard room and a package breakfast but quality can vary. The Reception service was A1 and the room was very well maintained... More

I stayed here two nights in June while on a fishing trip to Seward. This was the fourth year in a row I've visited Seward but the first time I was able to get into the HI Express which is often full. The location is fantastic, right on the harbor. We had a great view from our window. This hotel... More

We stayed 2 nights here to see the exit glacier which is a out 20 minutes away by car. We took a day cruise to see wildlife and glaciers in several sounds around Seward. The room s are large and very clean and comfortable. The included continental breakfast is quite adequate. I find the rate to be about double what... More

When you book this hotel make sure you ask for a room with a view of the harbour, much nicer and all standard rooms face the road. Excellent location to walk from the station after you get off the Alaska Railroad . No more that 5 mins to the front door. This hotel is right by all of the tour... More

After reading the positive reviews we booked this hotel several months ago and very glad we did. Our room was on the top floor with a balcony and we overlooked the harbor. We enjoyed the breakfast and really appreciated it as buying all meals in Alaska gets very expensive. All the staff were friendly and offered to store our luggage... More

We had to wait until 3pm to check in even most people with us who booked the same hotel arrived by alaska railroad from anchorage at 11 am. Not very customer friendly to let us all wait. Reception was completly unorganised. We booked a room with kingsize bed well in advance but such room was not available. Standard and cleaness... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for three nights. This is not normally the type of lodging we would book but it turned out to be fine. We arrived in Seward early morning on a cruise ship and the clerk at HI stored our luggage and backpacks for us and we took off for an early excursion. We were... More

You simply cannot beat this location at the Seward harbor, but the accommodations are pretty typical motel-quality in the lower 48. Most HEI properties I have visited in other places provide a bit nicer rooms, furnishings, towels, etc., but only this one is in such a beautiful spot. So you'll pay a premium for the great surroundings.

We stayped here two nights. Our room had a balcony overlooking the boats in the harbor. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Nice bathroom with vanity large enough for you stuff. Staff very friendly and helpful. It was expensive but everything in Alaska is more than in SC. Ask for a room with a balcony on the harbor
