“Out of the Way Location but Staff Overcomes That”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Though the Lodge is not located in downtown Seward the staff does everything in its power to get you to town when you need to get there. We had missed the shuttle and another one wasn't scheduled for an hour. The cabs were not answering calls so we thought we would be stuck. One of the shuttle drivers volunteered to take us to town not only that but he dropped us off at the restaurant.

The lodge itself is small but nicely decorated. There are computer for guests to use, but I had no problem accessing the internet and we were in the furthest cabins from the lodge. The grounds are quite nice, the restaurant on the property was good, though a little expensive. Would I stay here again? Yes

The only negative was that we were on the first floor of the cabins and the people staying upstairs were quite active in moving around. We could hear them quite well every step that they took. Try requesting second floor accommodations.

Room Tip: Try requesting accommodations on the second floor, we stayed on the first and could folks moving aro...

Nice, clean and comfortable smaller size rooms with minimal desk/drawer space. The staff was very accommodating. Fairly quiet and a few miles to town and good restaurants. We ate breakfast twice and dinner once at their restaurants and the food was good and the waiting staff was extremely friendly. You pretty much need a vehicle if you plan to go anywhere.

The rooms were clean and spacious. The main lodge was beautiful. The roadhouse was a 2 minute walk for a great meal and drinks. The views from the grounds were stunning. I can't say enough about this place. I thought the beds were very comfortable. and I truly enjoyed our stay.

When you stay in Alaska, the Windsong allows you to experience the rustic nature of the the great outdoors. The rooms were clean, the restaurant has fantastic views and the shuttle ran quite regularly into town and also on demand. We were looking for some place quiet and we found it! Loved the towering cabin-like lobby and fireplace coziness, too.

Room Tip: The second floor has a wonderful view out back into the wooded areas from the private balcony but I...

Stayed two nights. Beautiful lodge. Small rooms and very clean. Shuttle service to town included in cost operating from 7am to 10pm. Very accommodating. Larry the driver was extremely helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

This lodge is in a nice setting just outside Seward. It helps to have a car when staying here so that you have the flexibility to come and go as you please. Clearly this lodge had many people from the cruise ships, we were able to tell from the number of busses at the main entrance. The rooms were clean and had a sufficient amount of room. The room with the deck wasn't really worth it since it was rainy and chilly but the deck also looked thought some trees at the main lodge. We rented two rooms, and the suite had a nice amount of room. From what I could tell, this is probably the best place to stay in Seward, but keep in mind that the main town of Seward is a couple of miles away.
