At one time this had been a military barracks, from what I was told, and has a very local feel to it.. It is not your average cookie-cutter motel. We found this place after being priced out of every other property. Initially reluctant to stay here, but after inspection, found it was exactly what we needed. Our unit had a... More

My friends and I spent one night at this place. Our bedroom was bigger than we had expected; it had a kitchen and dining area. The owner was very nice and kind. It's kind of a rustic place, but we didn't need anything luxurious. Good option if you just want to rest after a long hiking day.

Top location in Seward. Walking distance to laundromat, shopping, dining and Sealife Center. Not fancy but James the manager really cares and the rooms have full kitchens so you can cook your catch. This is the place in Seward for basic functional accommodations.

This is an older property with minimum frills, but it worked just fine for my stay in Seward. I loved having a full kitchen, so I could buy food at the local grocery store, and prepare my own meals/snacks, instead of having to stand in line at the local and expensive restaurants. It was conveniently located and my parking space... More

Booked two rooms in this hotel for two nights, only to arrive in the night and be told that there is only one room available. The owner is not a reasonable and understanding fellow, and cannot communicate properly in English which makes everything even more painful. The rooms were okay. The location is good. But I would recommend all travelers... More

The rooms are old and smelly. At least the bathroom had been updated. Their were flies in the room. This is a last option place to book for you stay in Seward. The location is the only good thing about Taroka Inn.

We flew in to Anchorage and rented a car and drove directly to Seward. It was a nice drive through the mountains and rain. When we got to the hotel I was shocked initially because it was late and still so much daylight. When we checked in the accommodations looked sparse but as it turned out they were great. It... More

I waited too long to book a room in Seward, on a night prior to a cruise ship departure. The only other alternative was a Holiday Inn Express, at ~$300. Since I only needed a place for one night I decided to stay at Taroka for $135 plus tax. If I had to do this again, I would probably, reluctantly,... More

Great location, walk to everything downtown. Shuttle 1/2 block away for harbor, Exit Glacier and more. The motel is very old, but rooms were clean. Kitchen had everything you need to prepare and serve a meal. Our room was connected to office and very noisy when people arrived to check in. You have to go through bedroom to get to... More

Old run down rooms with a musty smell. If you don't plan ahead you may end up here, but I'd only stay as a last resort. The owner wouldn't give us an extra blanket. Room lay out is very odd in a bad way. On the plus side there is a vice and a bench grinder mounted in the lobby... More
