We stayed at Box Canyon Cabins from August 26th to the 29th. We stayed in the main cabin (Moose Cabin) below the owners quarters. The cabin was like brand new and extremely clean. The cabins are about three miles from town and are set in the woods with a pond in the middle. We were completely satisfied and will definitely... More

Stayed on the third floor overlooking the harbour. Room was large but slightly drab in colour. The lift was pretty slow. If you arrive by train your bags get transferred to the hotel for free.. It costs $2 per bag to have the reverse. The breakfast was better than expected .. Pancakes, fruit, cakes etc. The location makes up for... More

We tend to stay in HIE's when we travel as we know what we're getting into. The HIE in Seward is no different, though it looks to be among the priciest hotels in Seward... Then again, HIE's tend to be pricier than other low-rise hotel chains.... We had a 3rd floor, harbor-facing double queen room. I must say, this HIE... More

Great location! You can walk to the harbor and restaurants are very close by. Also close by you can catch the Seward.com yellow bus to travel to other sights, drop-off to the cruise terminal, the playground and shopping in downtown Seward for free. Good breakfast and indoor pool.

The staff here is super friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent. The actual room is very dated and feels cheap inside. If they could update the decor/rooms this would be a 5/5. But I guess since there is not much competition as far as hotels in Seward go, they can get away with the dated rooms. I think one... More

We stayed in a room with a view. We enjoyed looking out at the waterfront with mountains in the background. The room was nice and clean. Great location. My kids enjoyed watching folks come in with their catches at the end of the day and see them get processed. The hotel is near a couple of seafood restaurants and the... More

After being unable to reserve online through the Holiday Inn Express website, I called the hotel's front desk. New owners have purchased the hotel and as of September 1st it will be the Seward Harbor 360 Hotel and affiliated with Major Marine Tours. I can't predict how that will affect their service, but I wanted to ensure people were aware... More

This hotel located next to the Seward harbor is great, clean with free breakfast. Conveniently located right on the waterfront. Nice to have, especially when going fishing. Practically I could have jumped on my boat from this location. No pets allowed. :-( but otherwise a great place to stay.

Stayed two nights at this facility and found it extremely convenient to many locations along the harbor. The staff was friendly and were helpful about storing our luggage and making certain our luggage got from the rail station to the hotel. The facility has pretty fair wifi and had a better than the Alaska normal of TV stations.

We spent a night here before taking a cruise to Vancouver. Clean room, nice people. Okay breakfast - for the prices they charge, the breakfast could be a lot better, frankly. Good enough if you must stay in Seward. Why would one want to stay in Seward is beyond me, though. Things to keep in mind: - They do offer... More
