My wife & I spent a couple of days (8/12 - 8/13) in Seward and couldn't have been happier that we chose The Nauti Otter Inn. This place is flat out cool. What makes it cool is that Heather the owner really made this a one of a kind hostel & hotel. The decor is so funky that you can't... More

My sister and I stayed for two nights at the Nauti Otter. It's a funky and charming property just outside of Seward. We opted to stay in one of the unique lodging options, a vintage camper trailer called the Lumberjack Shack. The Lumberjack Shack was roomy enough for two people to sleep comfortably and had outlets for charging electronic devices,... More

We stayed at the lumberjack for three nights. Clean comfortable budget lodging. The owner is friendly & always tried to help us out whenever she is able to. We booked the Kenai Fjord cruise & Exit Glaciers climbing tour with her and got some discount. Highly recommend this place !

I had the pleasure of staying at the Nauti Otter the last half of July and it served as the perfect base camp for all the adventures Seward has to offer, while providing a comforting, cozy place to relax, make dinner, and chat with people from all over the world. I have no doubt that I could write for days... More

I spent 2 nights in the Sourdough Cabin. I've been in Alaska dry cabins before and Nauti Otter met my expectations. Heather is very nice and helpful. She arranged for my Seward boat trip and her list of things to do on the way down from Anchorage was well done. If you are ok with walking to the bathroom and... More

I went to the Nauti Otter twice in the past couple weeks, once with my sister and another time with my best friend and we all just loved it! We stayed in both the Humpback Shack and the Lumberjack Shack and found each to be a blast. I would say that the Humpback Shack had the more comfortable beds but... More

Great place not far from the main town. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Loved all the little quirky things over the walls. Really enjoyed our stay! The little outhouse was especially great. Not what we were expecting.

My wife and I stayed in the Little Dingy for 5 nights. It was the perfect basecamp for adventures in Seward and beyond. We enjoyed the pancake breakfast, the well stocked kitchen and ample common space for relaxing (the dingy is comfy, but quite cozy). Heather is the best hostel owner we've ever met and really enjoyed all our interactions... More

Love the theme and the small homie atmosphere. Bucky the hostel cat is super friendly and is even more down to being held than my own cat lol. The outhouse is actually super cute and has all the decorations and a lamp inside the wooden shed. The beds in the hostel is nice too but its co-ed just fyi. The... More

Fun and original place to stay. Very friendly people. Loved the fact that you can make your own waffles for breakfast! Easy to take a taxi or hitchhike to downtown. (Thanks for bringing uw also to the cruise terminal!)
