Best experience EVER!!!! I've been to Haines several times in the last few years for different festivities. But the people at Fort Seward Lodge gave us a better experience than we've ever had before. We rented the new suite and were blown away by how beautiful it was and how amazing the view was and how amazing the people that... More

This is the 2nd time going to the lodge this summer season and was SO worth it. This lodge came up from the dust & has made a debut with a bang. The managers of the lodge were very hospitable & took excellent care of us, the lodge was BEAUTIFUL and clean, & they also have a BAR--even if you're... More

We stayed here for a night while visiting Haines. The room was old, dimly lit, with old furnishings. The young lady staffing was helpful and ready to answer any questions re the area. Think it is over priced considering the quality and the 1 bathroom at the end of the hall to be shared by everyone.

In our photos on the reservation page, we are very clear with what this room offers. We provide in our clear description of the room that it is "historic" and yes, it is not newly remodeled for just that reason. We want it to be more of a rustic experience. Every other lodge or hotel in town that offers the... More

Every time we stop in Haines we stay at the Fort Seward Lodge! Their staff is friendly and accommodating, the rooms are always clean and tidy. Morning Yoga with Lena is the best way to relax and unwind! The lodge has a great central location and is within easy walking distance of the waterfront and down town. We can't wait... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights with another couple in their newly remodeled suite. It was clean, spacious, modern and contemporary with a rustic charm. I highly recommend the suite for a weekend getaway. It has a large open concept living room and kitchen with a fireplace, flat screen tv, two bedrooms and a large bathroom. The... More

We needed a place to stay overnight before catching the ferry out the next day. The place was all closed up and sign on the door said back at 11. It was well past 11, but we realized - small town, laid back attitude, no worries. When we got into the office, Hillary said one room available, no tv, only... More

What really made this place shine was the wonderful staff. They are super friendly and helpful, very welcoming and accommodating. The place is old - that's why they call it "historic" - so expect that. It was very clean. We had one of the rooms with a private bath, and it was a very small bathroom, but it worked just... More

I made this reservation by email, the night before I arrived and although I asked for the details of the room I did not receive them, nor called to find out. This mean I have my share of the blame...

Like some of the other reviewers, we had a bit of an adventure actually getting our room but once that all got worked out, things were good. We had a room with 2 double beds and a private bath.

This place is pretty old and tired but is in the process of undergoing a refurbishment so by the time you read this things might be improved.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located directly across from both the Cruise Ship Dock and Skagway Fast Ferry Dock in Haines, Alaska, the Fort Seward Lodge, Restaurant and Saloon was built in 1904 as part of the first U.S military base in Alaska. As the original Post Exchange, the Fort has been a part of the Haines community for over 100 years. The building has gone through many changes and additions over the years, decommissioned in the early 1930's and purchased by a group of retired officers, it then started its long history as a saloon and lodge in the true Alaskan spirit. Currently the lodge operates seasonally, open February - May for Heli-skiing and May - August for summer tourism and fishing. The Fort is known for good times, good people and good food. Come hang out with the "old salts" in the saloon or enjoy a cocktail or locally brewed beer while taking in the salt air on our deck with the ocean view! Grills and picnic tables are available for our guests who may wish to prepare their own catch of the day. We provide yoga and brunch in the summer every Saturday on our patio. We also have a horseshoe pit for your enjoyment. Our mission is to provide an authentic, down to earth, experience for our customers. The Fort is a family run business and we want you to feel a part of our family. Whether you are visiting Haines to ski, snowmobile, fish, view wildlife, gaze at the Northern Lights or simply passing through, allow us to assist you in putting together your Alaskan dream vacation. Hope to see you soon! ... more   less
