This is a great hotel for travelers. It's located near all the activities of Seward and next to the best food stops....Chinooks and Rays. You can also walk to downtown Seward. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. If you get a harbor view room then views are amazing.

friendly front desk, typically good breakfast, convenient location. great glacier and harbor view through window (we stayed in a harbor-view room). the exterior looks a little bit different from a typical holiday inn express hotel. but the service and the comfortable night stay is as good as a typical one. it is very quiet at night. and room is very...

Great views from the hotel of the harbor and the mountains, but at about $300/night for a Holiday Inn Express it gives you pause. Clean, well run, with very good desk staff. So, I guess it's just a case of suck it up and pay the price to be in Seward. Even though the weather wasn't that great, the views... More

We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn in Seward earlier this week. We had a harbor front balcony room and the view was incredible. We watched the boats leave in the morning and cmd back in the evenings. The check-in staff were friendly and efficient. Our room was nice - nothing very special, but we knew it was a... More

Internet not working. AC not working and blowing hot air. I was told to run the AC for 15 minutes and it would turn cold. After 15 minutes the room temp was 80 and maintenance could not fix. We were offered at discount. We paid for and were promised a balcony room. When we arrived to no balcony the manager... More

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
