I recently stayed at the Taroka Inn with a couple of friends for a night when we were passing through Seward. I've definitely stayed in nicer places, but the Taroka Inn met all of our needs just fine. It is a little bit older and definitely has some noticeable wear and tear throughout, but the rooms themselves were fine. Don’t expect to walk into a 5 star hotel, and you won’t be disappointed, but it was definitely a good value nonetheless.
I will absolutely echo the other reviews by saying that the owner is a true delight. When we arrived a couple hours prior to the check in time, he had absolutely no trouble accommodating us. He was very friendly and welcoming, and offered to give us advice about things to do in the area if we needed it. He even gave us a free upgrade to the biggest room on the property. The room had three separate bedrooms with three good sized beds so we all got our own room and our own bed within the larger room itself, which was nice after having travelled quite a long way to get to Alaska. The room had a very spacious full kitchen and living area, although we unfortunately didn't have the time to utilize them. The free wi-fi was also very much appreciated. The rooms were very basic, but that was just fine with us. It was very clean, and the inside definitely looks better than the outside so don't judge a book by its cover.
It is a very short walk to the downtown Seward area, which was very convenient. Since Seward is such a small town, accommodations tend to be pretty expensive, but the Taroka Inn was reasonably priced and we were very satisfied with our stay!
