We stayed here in June and found it to be dirty. The hallway carpet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a month. The bedroom was dirty, especially the covers. They offered no continental breakfast, except a bagged lunch for $10.00. The showers had two temperatures-warm or cold. $159 for one night and you got nothing of value. The TV... More

We arrived late afternoon and were upgraded to a large, bright , clean room. This motel is family run and personal service is it's strength. The location was ideal for the harbour and all the attractions of the town were within walking distance. We loved Seward, went whale watching and enjoyed the lovely atmosphere. The motel was great value.

Motel is located close to the harbor but quite far from downtown. There are large rooms and comfortable beds, continental breakfast is good. The price is quite good compared to other rentals in Seward. Wifi was provided in all rooms but the connection was slow.

I was quoted one price on the phone for a room with 2 queen beds. I was given a better rate upon arrival, but could not have a room in a desired, newer section of the motel that I stayed in last year for a similar rate. Valerie's family sold this place in March and there was not the same... More

Convenient. Close to Train and Cruise Terminal and Shopping. the furnishings were old and the bed spread had an oder. The shower ran out of hot water. Leaving an icewater shower. To their credit they did let us in a little early since we came in by train at 11:30 am

We stayed at this hotel during our recent trip to Alaska. The room itself is very dated and could certainly use some updating. That being said, it was clean and safe and very conveniently located to all that Seward has to offer! The staff was friendly.

We have a small dog and our fifth phone call to Seward located the Marina willing to allow a pet. It must be a new policy because the doors on each unit say no pets allowed. The beds are comfortable. The refrig is cool. The TV is new. The bathroom is clean. There are a few dust bunnies under the... More

We stayed here in early June and the room was ok but we couldn't turn down the heat and the management couldn't either. We would have opened the window but there was no screen. The manager/owner went to put it on as it was outside the window. As I looked out, I saw why the screen was off. People were... More

Perfectly fine, average motel room at a reasonable price. Easy walk to the harbor and shopping in that area. If the traffic makes crossing the highway difficult, there is a lighted tunnel under the highway about a block up the hill. There's a grocery store not much farther up the hill to buy things to put in the refrigerator. The... More

Todd runs a great motel in the edge of downtown Seward and right across the street from the best breakfast in Alaska. The bed is comfortable and it's quiet. Short walk to anything. No need to pay to be not he water which is noisier and more expensive (also pay fro parking). Real Alaskan stay here!
