I have stayed in this "older" motel on several occasions this summer. It's not fancy at all. The bathrooms are small. Does have refrigerator. New towels. "Older Motel" ok. All I'm gona say is it's a good value. I'll stay there again. I fish there a lot and don't need fancy stuff there. Staff is friendly.

We stayed at the Marina Motel a week or two after tourist season so the place was empty except for a few customers. It is an older motel that reminds you of those that use to dot the roads in the 70's. The price was reasonable for Alaska and the staff are friendly. We liked the room, it was basic,... More

the room is small but with $80 per day, we do not expect more. Very close to our cruise and also have shuttle to there every 5 minutes. Overall, great experience and wonderful front desk. Best place to stay in seward if you are traveling in a tight budget.

We paid $80 per night. It was good. No complaints. Clean and comfortable. Location is great. Right next to very good breakfast joint - Smoke Shack and downtown. We enjoyed our stay in Seward. The lady at the check in counter was very helpful. She gave us information about everything that we can do in Seward.

Stayed for 2 nights, didn't seem too bad at first, as we were getting ready to leave was checking under the beds to make sure that we had not left anything behind and found that there was a lot of stuff under the beds that did not belong to us; a pair of sandals, a shampoo bottle, water bottle as...

We stayed two nights at the Marina, a mom and pop style single floor motel. The older facility was clean, up to date, and the beds were good. Seward gets a bit pricey in the summer tourist season, and we wanted to be thrifty due to the cost of fishing charters. We agreed that we would go back in a... More

We stayed here 1 night on 7/30/13. Simply - a very clean 1950s style motel that is across the highway from the Alaska Railroad station and a 5 minute walk from the catamaran fjords tour, as well as the free shuttle that goes around downtown (this is a small town, not very far at all, likely a 20-30 minute walk...

We enjoyed this place immensely and will say that it exceeded our expectations. The Marina Motel reminded us of a quaint hotel in Cooktown, Queensland Australia called the Sea View Motel where you can kick back, get your fresh catch at the dock, get fresh fish and chips as a take away and suck up the view. The magnificent view... More

It's not the Westin, but the super nice staff and clean rooms delivered a better than expected experience. Great location!!! Only negative: the tiny "bathroom" window was frosted without a curtain. Easy fix: stuff extra pillows around the window to keep out the night time sun.

We stayed three nights here on our trip to Alaska. The room was clean and comfortable. We really like staying in local establishments and were glad we chose to stay here. It was close to several restaurants, so we could take a nice walk in the evening.
