Location cannot be beat. So convenient for Kenai Fjord or fishing trips, or the Sealife Center. Lovely view of the small boat harbor. Brakfast and bedtime cookies included! It even has a pool and spa (uncommon in Alaska) Rooms are clean and commidious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent value. I will happily stay here again anytime.

First of all Seward is breathtaking. This hotel is located right on the bay in the heart of the city. From our window we were able to watch 10+ eagles soar by. We loved watching the boats leaving and fishermen hard at work. Everything is walkable from this hotel. Great restaurants and tourist locations close by. Breakfast was served daily.... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights in September 2014. The location was excellent! And the view was great, especially with it being right on the harbor. We even lucked out and saw either sea lions or sea otters swimming right near the hotel in the harbor one evening and that was really cool. The breakfast and cookies were... More

Only stayed 1 night, but the views from the water side are great. Due to it being the off season John gave us a free upgrade. Great location very nice breakfast. THanks to all the staff. We did not use the indoor pool, but it looked nice.

We were on a business trip to Kenai, then stole a few days to swing to Seward before heading home to CA. After reading all reviews I choose this hotel....I appreciated its reliable reputation. Would have loved a B&B, but none seemed to fit our needs of breakfast cooked for us. We were impressed with the area as soon as... More

The water front property has one elevator for a four-story hotel with 90 rooms. The location is good – located at the end of the main area of Seward and within walking distance of most restaurants and activities (but not the Alaska SeaLife Center). The lobby has many soft chairs, tables, TVs and a nice fireplace. The computers are out... More

The hotel location is great. Once you get in, you can practically walk to your cruises agents and dinner locations. Major Marine and Kenai Fjord cruises depart from the harbor next to HIE which made it really convenient. Nx to the hotel, there's a seafood restaurant (Chinook) which will fix you up with great seafood & Alaskan king crab. The... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here July 2 and 3rd 2014, pre-cruise. The hotel is not a large or fancy hotel but it's well situated and the scenery could not be more perfect. it's 1/4 of a mile or 0.25 of a kilometer from the train station to this hotel.

This hotel has a nice view over the harbor in Seward. At $279 / night it is a bit pricey for the quality of the accomodations. The staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is included. The location is very good.
