Read all the reviews and did my homework, reviewing many other motels around Seward... this was far by the best, and so worth the stay (I stayed 3N). Had a blast. Pros: - location is AMAZING. smack downtown. 4 mins walk across the road to Kenai Fjords (leave yr car at the motel carpark and walk to the Kenai Fjord... More

On the plus side, the room appeared clean, the bed was average comfort, the place was fairly quiet, there were plenty of lights, the staff was friendly and responsive, I didn't see any bugs, and the tv worked after a fashion. The remote wouldn't turn the tv off and on - had to do that on the tv, but the... More

This is a really frayed-around-the-edges motel but it served us very well. We were camping on the waterfront but the rains came in hard and we wanted a hotel. We called these folks-they had one room left for $149/night and we took it so we were thrilled. Friendly folks at the front desk. It's right on the highway within walking... More

This motel in the lower 48 states would at best go for $50 to $75 a night, nearly one 3rd of the actually cost of $180. This is about the same ratio I found at every hotel and restaurant I visited in Alaska. Alaska is expensive and prices are set for tourists. This motel has everything I look for in... More

This motel was recommended and turns out to have been a good value and very comfortable room! I was there for a week. The staff kept the room clean every day and during down time I was able to relax comfortably. My room appears to have been recently remodeled and updated. Thank you for the good service!

The hotel is minimal. It's in dire need of updates. The good: location to the cruises, nice staff. The bad: the smell, the noise, everything is old. The price is a supply short, high demand price and doesn't correlate with amenities. The hotel is market priced.

We stayed at Marina Motel for a night in mid June after a cruise trip and were very glad that we made the choice to stay there. Seward is very expensive in summer months and Marina Motel is reasonable by comparison. The location is great - close to many restaurants and the harbor. It is within walking distance to the...

I'm a pretty forgiving and adventurous traveler, but this Motel was barely acceptable. Granted, there aren't many affordable options in Seward, so it was doable for one night. Location is fantastic. Right across the street from the train station and just a very short walk to 360 harbour where many of the tours, including Kenai Fjords, go out. There are... More

It's not fancy. It's not new. It's close to the highway and noisy. It's clean and reasonable. The rooms vary in size and quality some. There's no AC. I've stayed here quite a few times in the past. It's reasonably priced. The staff has always been friendly to me. I'm not a tourist and don't expect a lot. This place... More
