I found this place a bit expensive. The wifi did not work in our room. The signal was very weak and we would lose connection. The complimentary breakfast did not have many options. I am sure you can get better service for the same money elsewhere.

Great location and the young lady on the front desk was very helpful. The view from the deluxe room on second floor was amazing. When we woke up the next morning we could see our cruise ship. I was a bit concerned as there is no lift but it is only one flight of stairs. The free Seward shuttle has... More

Location on is on the water, and on a main road next to a park and an RV park. Quite noisy along with the hollow walls. Its your basic motel room almost zero amenities they do offer free WiFi. The free breakfast consisted of Styrofoam cup of coffee and a three day old refrigerator muffin, can you say diaharea. You... More

The first impression, being a motel, was not very inviting, but then we ended up staying for three nights. We enjoyed the big room, even though we didn't use the kitchenette. I enjoyed the rather simple breakfast, compared to the American style breakfast, we had before.

We booked here because we were looking for a place that is within walking distance to the harbor so we can go on the Kenai Fjord Cruise the following morning. Primary reason for that is because I didn't want to pay for parking at the harbor. It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk I would say to the... More

The worst aspect of our 2 night stay in Murphy's Inn, as others have observed, was the noise. Our first floor room in the new block suffered from being able to hear every footstep in the room above us with the added distraction of frequent plumbing sounds. Not conducive to a good night's sleep. Our bedroom was large, light and... More

I paid for one night to see the room before deciding about staying a second night. The room looked okay so I went back to the office and paid for the next night too. Next morning someone is trying to open the door. I'm in the bathroom so I can't answer the door. Instead, I assume it's housekeeping so I... More

I have never written a bad review, but I thought I needed to warn others about this place. My husband and our 2 year old daughter missed our flight back to Colorado and were scrambling last minute to find something in Seward. Murphy's Inn was one of the only places with a room available--should have been a warning, but we... More

If you end up here, get the second floor, people walking upstairs and loud all night. First floor windows about two feet from the street with people walking by all night long. Doors with old fashioned key locks. Did not feel secure. Clean room, but outdated. Wifi available, but so slow it doesn't work. Ran out of coffee and meager... More

Or at least make sure your room is in the 2 level building. Look at their site carefully to be sure you are not in the motel section which borders the street. It's very noisy. The rooms are tiny, but they are clean. They advertise Wi-Fi, but when you get there, they say it doesn't work in most parts of... More
