It was very clean but dated. I thought it was on the water but is not. Can see the water over a ball field and a campground. Nice mountain scenery. Can hear every movement on floor above. Can walk to town but not as close as expected. Overall was adequate.

Very nice little hotel in the middle of Seward, close to the downtown and various restaurants. In walking distance from Kenai Fjords visitor center and the harbor. Very good value for your money. Small selection for breakfast, friendly stuff.

This is more of a motel. Do not judge it by the reception area. We were on the 2nd floor of the building adjacent with balcony and sea & mountain view. The location is good being between the old town and the harbour. The rooms are well equiped, comfortable and clean. Car park is spacious and easy to access. The... More

Originally we had reservations at the Best Western in Seward. However, closer to our trip we decided to look for a more affordable option, and chose Murphy's Alaska Inn just by looking at their website and price. Basically just taking a chance. To our surprise, we made an excellent choice and saved hundreds. The bed was great, very soft! TV... More

Nice clean local hotel. We had the second floor ocean view room. Clean quite and a more affordable voice to some of the other options. Close to the harbor and beach. Simple place to stay in Seward- no complaints.

Looking for a simple place to lay my head and have a view. This place is clean and had a frig and micro wave in my room with a view and a coffee maker. Pre season rate was 99 because they were not doing breakfast yet. Midway between port and older town. Park then water and mountains across the street.... More

By writing this review, I know that I'll never be able to stay there again because it will be too popular. But they deserve the excellent review that I am about to give. I had wanted to stay at a different hotel. It was on the water. But, even though I was booking well in advance of the trip, just... More

I was not impressed when we drove up to the motel but once in the room it couldn't have been cleaner and our view of the mts. and water was awesome! It was a true Alaskan experience! One I would repeat!

We stayed one night downstairs in the two story unit and it was horrible because we could hear every step, toilet flush, etc. the construction was cheaply and poorly done...no insulation between the floors. We were awake till the upstairs finally retired after midnite. We were moved to the upstairs for the next nite snd it was quieter. I suggest... More
