The harbor side location of this hotel is within walking distance of the harbor cruise line terminals and numerous restaurants. Our room had an excellent view of the harbor. We saw a large cruise ship at it's dock one morning. I was able to use my hotel reward points for our stay which made this a bargain. The one downside... More

We finished our Kenai Fjords cruise and were able to walk right up to the hotel. Yes, it's that close. We had 2 rooms and tried to get them together, but this is a popular hotel so book early. We had our luggage brought directly to the hotel from the railroad, so when we checked in we mentioned it to... More

I have stayed here on two occasions this past year. The breakfast bar isn't any thing special and my experience was no one keeps food stuffs filled. Was kind of sad with the number of people staying there. If you get there at 5pm to check in expect to have to find your own parking some where other than their... More

We got a ground floor room with 2 queen beds. It was nice sized and the harbor was right out our window. The smell of the marina was heavenly. I will definitely stay here again if there is space. Didn't have kids or use the restaurant so rated them average.

The staff was wonderful!! Everyone was very friendly. They let us check in early and upgraded out room when they found out we had 3 small children to the largest room they had so the kids could run around. The pool was awesome, since its so cold in November we spent plenty of time in there letting the kids burn... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 3 nights while in Seward. This is a wonderful hotel. The hotel had A/C which was a plus. Our balcony was on the street side but was still nice. The breakfast had a big selection and was very good. I was able to utilize the government rate which was made our stay... More

This is a very nice property. I'm giving 4 stars, but 4.5 would be closer if I could give that. Arrival experience was friendly and reasonably quick, though no mention of elite status. Keys were not made up ahead of time. Had a lovely room overlooking the harbor with high ceilings and a large window opening to a small balcony.... More

After reading many reviews I picked the Holiday Inn Express for the good price and location. The staff were friendly and helpful upon arrival and check in was easy. The room was located right next to the elevator, but we had no problems with noise. The room was large, clean and had all the extra's...coffee, soap's, fridge, and a nice... More

This was a great place to stay in Seward! We had a great fishing trip at Miller's Landing, but were freezing and smelling of fish when we were done (plus 12 Salmon-yum!). So the Holiday Inn Express had a great laundry facility, and we were able to get all cleaned up and human again. The hotel is great-wonderful breakfast and... More

We intended to stay here just two nights before embarking on a cruise. As bad luck would have it, the cruise was canceled the day before we arrived. The people at the desk, who were anticipating numerous cancelations & additional problems, could not have been nicer. They were able to give us a room for a few extra nights giving... More
