Only stayed one night, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Lobby is eclectic and the rooms are like stepping back in time. But very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. Insulated windows shut out any street noise, of which there is hardly any. Nice view, great location, very clean. Highly recommended, especially if you are interested is something other than a chain hotel.... More

My wife and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend this year and were very happy we picked this as our hotel. The location is wonderful with many restaurants, bars and activities within walking distance. The hotel is Victorian in style and the room we had was wonderful. Plenty of room with chairs for sitting and a electric fireplace that... More

This hotel is very convenient, located in downtown Seward. Take some time to tour the lobby and read the history. Since we have a dog we had a very convenient end room on the first floor. Our room was spacious, clean and included a refrigerator. The furnishings are old - it reminded me of the 1970's - the room and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your wonderful comments. Appreciate that you enjoyed the hotel.

We booked two rooms for two nights in the historic side of Hotel Seward. Rooms were basic and clean, just what we needed. The location is convenient to walking around the town of Seward. Very friendly atmosphere from the front desk to the restaurant/bar manager to the the owner, Mary. The food and service were excellent at the restaurant also.... More

but I will try! This is a charming hotel located in downtown Seward. I usually don't "gush", but I'm going to make an exception here. It's hard to separate out whether our stay was so excellent due to the exceptional customer service, the quirkiness of the hotel, or the sheer charm and comfort of our room. This is definitely not...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of August. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room seemed a bit dated but was very clean and comfortable. It was helpful to have a small refrigerator and microwave in the room. The location is conveniently located in the downtown area, so we were able to easily walk to the... More

We had a early more kayaking trip planned so we stayed the night here. For the price it was good. The lobby was neat because it had lot of animal mounts. The beds were comfy and the room was a good size for 2 people. The decorations/bedding were not what you would find at a Hilton but it fit perfect... More

My husband and I got a room in the historic side. We got the queen room, with the bathroom. It was a very small and basic room, but neither of us mind that. We were basically just sleeping there anyways. We were pretty comfortable with the room itself. However, The walls are very thin, so we heard the people next... More

Dear Anna, Thank you for your input. We look forward to you coming back. Hopefully I can help with your concern about the warmth of the room. We have found that some guest did not realize that there was a control on the lower side of the radiators. The control dial operates from 1 to 5. Each room has a... More

My daughter & I stayed in a room in the old part of the hotel. This section has shared bathrooms (you might have to wait a short while if the hotel is busy). Our room had a wash basin & 2 large, comfortable beds. It had a door through to the next room which let sounds through. Downstairs was the... More
