Thanks for helping make Seward the best part of our adventure! The historical stay at the Van Gilder was very comfortable. Loved the Ocean View and the thrill of the Ghost! Also your help with acomadating our need for the next night's room at the Marina We will be back!

First, I would stay there again. Hopefully at FAR less expense than this stay but the whole town was booked and they did accommodate us. Our room was rather fresh and cheery! There were a few maintenance issues but nothing horrible. Hot water in the evening was non-existent. Maid service was minimal; make the bed, put out new towels, maybe... More

This place has definitely seen better days, most of them quite a long time ago. It is a bit tired and weary, but nonetheless, adequate and clean. The room was ample and the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was ok, but a bit on the cramped side. The hot water in the morning was a bit inconsistent, and this... More

We were in desperate need of a room for the evening. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our group. The rooms are ok however the location and staff make up for the dated interiors. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants in the area.

Not our first choice for Seward lodging, but all that was available when we made our reservation in this resort area. Staff was very cordial and capable. Room was adequate, but has not been updated since the '70s.. What really hits you is the bathroom is miniature (photos attached). Tub/shower is about a 2/3 scale and when you sit on... More

There is no pedestrian walkway to and from the motel and bedbugs infested the beds in Room 124. The manager did not change the bedding as requested and had no idea how to treat the infestation. I came home with multiple bedbug bites on my arms, upper back and ankles. While in the motel room, I lifted the bed padding... More

Everything is expensive in Alaska in the summer. And in Seward many hotels are booked up well in advance. This was the most affordable option for us and one of the few available three weeks in advance. Room was clean but small. Quite small. And most people probably have a closet bigger than the bathroom. Could barely find room to... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Marina Motel the end of July. I made our reservation only a month prior to arriving and the owner/manager was extremely accommodating. Every hotel in Seward was booked, yet this gentleman went out of his was to find a place for us, as we almost had to cancel our trip due to lack... More

We had been on a 5 day/4 night kayaking trip with 10 friends and had to come back a day early because of the weather. Arrived late in the evening and with the help of A60N, they found us 3 rooms, gave us a larger one so that we had a place to gather and eat dinner. They were extremely... More

We stayed here overnight and were impressed immediately with the cleanliness. The bed was comfortable and,yes, there was a busy road nearby but it didn't disturb us at all. The guy in the reception was very engaging and allowed us into our rooms a couple of hours early. He was extremely helpful in booking us out on the best excursions.... More
