Of the choices in Seward the Holday Inn Express is the best choice. It is on the Harbor and within walking distances of great restaurants and shops. The staff is incredible. Thomas in particular was very helpful. He was the only one on duty and there was a lot going on in the hotel. Some guests were not very pleasant... More

Best hotel location in Seward. Beautiful views overlooking harbor and mountains from breakfast area as well as rooms. Near restaurants, shops, attractions. Large, comfortable rooms, some with balconies. Has washers and dryers, which really helped at this stage of our trip. Great service and good breakfast.

We loved our 3 night stay here. The staff, especially the ladies in charge of breakfast, were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. You are walking distance from the train depot and the cruise ship dock. Of course, you are right next to the harbor to see all the boat activity and the fishermen come in with their catch.... More

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express Hotel with pleasant and helpful staff. They could certainly use more help at the front desk for check in and other issues. The rooms are clean a spacious. The beds are comfortable. Breakfast is quite good. $300 a night is about the going rate during the high season. It drops by half in... More

We stayed in a "standard" room. Standard rooms face the mountains - a beautiful view - and the road...so it was noisy. The pillowcases are labeled "soft" and "firm" but neither the pillows nor the bed felt comfortable. The door leading to the patio did not have black out blinds - they were light filtering instead - and during this... More

This hotel costs $300 a night. While I realize that the going rate for hotels in this small Alaska town is high, it seems that with this amount of revenue generated by the hotel, they could afford to hire an adequate number of employees. A single front desk employee is not an adequate amount for a busy, sold-out hotel. If... More

Wonderful location and views. Our luggage was picked up at the train depot and delivered to the hotel. Rooms are clean. Breakfast was included and was adequate. Had no hot on our last day... made for a very cold shower... was told the boiler had broken the night before.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. Great location, great hot tub, and great friendly staff. Thomas at the front desk was so nice and helpful throughout our stay. The self serve breakfast is good (hot selections and standard cold selections). Being on the harbor puts you walking distance to several restaurants and all of the water activities. One... More

Motel type hotel in an excellent waterfront location - brilliant view in a morning. Excellent staff, good size rooms, free breakfast. Seward itself is quite small so having a good hotel to relax in was great.

You can't beat the location. Right on the boat harbor. The best restaurant in Seward is two buildings away. Rooms are adequate, clean and the beds are OK. Service throughout the hotel was top notch. Word of warning! Parking is at a premium here. Once you park, DONT MOVE! You'll never find another spot after 4:00pm. Then you'll have to... More
