With the super high rates of hotels in summers, this was quite a bargain. The Rooms were quite clean for a motel, and the service was good, they left our room key at the reception, since we arrived late.

Stayed one night and felt ripped off at $179 for room only. It was basically a box with no kettle or spare toilet roll. We spent 16 nights in Alaska and this was the most expensive and the poorest room we had. No breakfast - nothing to justify the price.

I had a great time during our family vacation. The room was clean and service was inviting. We had a little kitchen with two burners, mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. I would recommend staying here.

Our room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We arrived after hours and the staff was nice enough to leave the key for us in a drop box. A breakfast voucher was included for a restaurant within a 5 minute walk, which was nice. The location is good, just off the main road; we had the window open... More

Basic accommodations that does that job for the price. Location is easily walkable to the waterfront and boat harbor. The included breakfast at a nearby restaurant gets you a combo of hot and cold items and was surprisingly good. We were assigned a room in the tiny strip of original rooms, but I would try to get one in the... More

It was one of the most wonderful places we ever stayed. The view from the top floor rooms were mesmerizing. It was cozy, clean and sitting in the midst of all the scenic beauty. You will have fridge and microwave in room.

Seward is expensive in the summer, and this hotel is a good value for what it provides - a nice, clean, comfortable room but nothing fancy. The front desk clerk was very helpful and accommodating. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
