We had a great stay at the Kind Eider Inn, and the ability to get a package deal with a rental vehicle made a HUGE difference in our stay! There were several types of vehicles to choose from, so we got exactly what we wanted. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable - everything you would want in a... More

The hotel is fairly close to the airport. Its was very quiet, comfortable, clean, and cozy. The hotel staff is helpful, they will help you find a tour or point you in the right direction if you want to take a walk about. The town is small so don't worry about getting lost. I would stay again.

The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the airport. The staff is very nice and helpful, and they provide coffee, tea, and hot water at the lobby. Also, there's a microwave, which is very convenient for our family. Overall this was a great hotel, and i would recommend it to anyone who stays in Barrow.

I stayed 1 night in june. Very clean, safe hotel. Very friendly owner and staff. When its owner heard that I was curious, he even let me taste the whale blubber which was gifted to them by the hunters after the tribal hunting season. Barrow was a completely different experiment for me. Ice covered Polar ocean shore was amazing. I... More

My wife and I travel several months a year staying in both high end and budget places. This is as good as it gets. I can not remember any hotel as nice as our eight night experience here. Very friendly owner and staff. Rooms are of the highest quality. Just amazing considering the location, across from the Barrow airport. Rooms... More

The rooms are nice, the décor cute. However, what stood out was the service, the kindness and the compassion of the staff. As a lone female traveling for work they took exceptional care to ensure that I felt safe and had everything I needed. They went above and beyond in providing information and guidance. I would recommend this hotel every... More

The inn is conveniently located right across the street from the airport. I had a large room with a kitchenette. My room had Wi-Fi and large desk which makes it great for the business person. The inn also had an added bonus of providing me with a vehicle rental. I had a wonderful three-day, two night business stay at the... More

The hotel is very comfortable and the people there are really nice. Our flight was supposed to depart at 5pm and after we checked out the room, they were kind enough to let us stay in the sofa of the lobby waiting for the flight (having beverages and watching TV). The hotel is really close to the Barrow airport (just... More
