We stayed here as a couple on our honeymoon, in the High Tide Room. We were able to check in upon arrival and it immediately felt like home. The owners and their daughter are so friendly and live right next door. The room was stocked with some food essentials you might need, such as teakettle, plates, bottle opener, glasses, silverware...

The Paddle Inn is located via a dirt road a couple of miles outside of Seward on Resurrection Bay. It consists of two rooms: the downstairs known as the low-tide room and the upstairs, or high-tide room. Both rooms have the same footprint; however, the lower one has been divided to make for a separate sleeping and living room. We... More

Thank you for your review, we really appreciate it. It was a pleasure having you stay with us for the five nights this August. I feel terrible the weather wasn't better for you.

We spent two nights here after a cruise. The accommodations (a two room cabin built by Alan, your host) are very comfortable, and the hosts were friendly and helpful in suggesting places to hike nearby (there is a lovely walk in the woods which you can reach on foot from the inn). The picture window in the front room looks... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm happy to hear you liked the Tonsina Trail. It is one of my personal favorites.

We had a great stay at the Alaska paddle inn. The owners were very helpful and gave us some really good recommendations on what to do and eat in Seward. Views were fabulous. The place was really nice and artfully done. Best shower I have ever had and the bed was comfortable. I can't recommend this place enough

This was my first trip to Alaska and I decided to stay in Seward at the Alaska Paddle Inn and make that my home base for exploring the area. I had 10 nights in a beautiful room with a million dollar view of Resurrection Bay. It was comfortable, quiet and just a couple of miles from downtown Seward. Alan and... More

The room was huge and renovated. I really liked the decor. The view right outside the window was great. The bed was extremely comfortable. The host was very welcoming and responsive. Overall, it was a good place to stay. Only thing, I wish they provided a cooked breakfast.

We were in the High Tide room on the second floor for 3 nights. The views were nice - cruise ships coming in and out of Seward and small boats on the bay. The location was quiet. It was a ways out of town down a dirt road as mentioned by other reviewers. The ride to the Inn was not... More

Paddle Inn was a fine place for us to base in the Seward area. We were in the lower unit "Low Tide". Beware the Paddle Inn is not actually in Seward, but out a couple of miles on an at times rough and potholed dirt road at Lowell Point. That road is literally carved from a very steep mountainside that... More
