Immediate smell of mold in the building. The carpets are old and need to be replaced. We were on the first floor and had no view. Staff was not helpful... Asked 3 different staff and no one could not give a recommendation for a restaurant in the area. Good location and decent beds but I highly recommend not staying here.

This is an updated hotel originally built in 1905. It's about a mile walk (or drive) from the busy docks of the sightseeing and tourist business, but still in the downtown area. It clearly has character. As you walk into the lobby you are struck by the countless stuffed game animals mounted on every surface. But the rooms are tame... More

Had a wonderful room for two nights. Very friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Clean. Fantastic breakfast. Very beautiful and convenient location, perfect to visit the Alaska Sea Life Center, and take a walk along the cost. Great restaurant in house, other places to eat or have a drink are close by. We had a great stay with a comfortable room to... More

Wow, the time spent at Hotel Seward was one of the great highlights of our group tour of Alaska! The accommodations and staff are superb. One could spend hours just enjoying the décor of the lobby and hallways. The innkeeper, Mary, exudes hospitality and charm. Her associate, Ron, is a prince of a guy who makes every attempt to please... More

We stayed here one night during our visit to Seward in one of the economy rooms, 2 twin size beds and shared bathroom. Beds were comfortable, room was clean. The bathroom situation was better than what I expected, they provide Lysol to sanitize if you like. They also provided tub/shower cleaner if you wish to use it. The lobby is... More

We stayed for 2 nights. We were not impressed. The staff was unfriendly, but not mean. Our room was on the first floor and our view was of the parking lot. We requested a king sized bed but got 2 double beds. The room had a funny smell to it. The hotel itself is a Victorian hotel cluttered with stuffed... More

Thrilled with this accommodating staff (especially Mary Kulstad...she is my "go to gal")! Our family of 4 adults & 2 yr old enjoyed a great 24 hour visit...close to the Sealife Center, restaurants, walks on the beach, etc...we will be back!

We stayed in one of the economy rooms. These are a great option for travelers on a budget, and we were grateful to the Hotel Seward for making these available. Friendly staff, great hotel location. Staff let us check in very early. Room was on the small side, but clean. Bathrooms were slightly dirty, but perhaps this was due to... More

We stayed three nights at the hotel and our stay was nothing but average. We stayed in the historic wing...where my husband and I had to sleep on separate twin beds. The room smelled kind of musty, and the pillows are paper thin. The staff was nice, which was a redeeming quality. We could only access our room by stairs,... More
