Stayed at the Marina during high season and despite the busyness, the owner/manager was friendly, exceptionally helpful and delivered excellent customer service. The Marina is located near the harbor and restaurants and is a very good value compared to other hotels in Seward. Room contained a convenient kitchenette.

This did the job for 1 night. The staff was friendly upon checkin. The room was clean, but minimum furnishings and very outdated. The room is very noisy. The bathroom is painfully small. It's hard to bend over the sink and not back into the wall. When sitting on the stool your knees almost touch the wall. The tub is... More

Had to stay there the night of 8/28 and I was not disappointed for $119 tax included the room was clean and functional Had I not been swayed by the historical significance of the Whistle Stop whose railroad car was built in the year I was born(1945) I would have stayed there 2 or 3 more nights. I recommend the... More

This was a motel. Clean room, friendly staff, wifi worked, in room facilities were more than expected. This was exactly what we paid for. Nothing fancy, but nothing to complain about either. Free parking. Opposite train station. Easy walk to pizza takeaway, Subway sandwich shop and harbour. 2 min drive from Safeway supermarket.

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
