“Great place”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Fine accommodation a few miles outside Seward, right on the road to Exit Glacier. Friendly staff and nice clean rooms. Breakfast is excellent. The “Salmonbake Restaurant and Pub” which is located right next to the lodge serves great food at reasonable prices. If you have the stamina the 8.2-mile round trip day hike from the bottom of the glacier to Harding Icefield can be recommended. The trail winds through cottonwood and alder forests, passes though heather filled meadows and climbs well above tree line to a breath-taking view of the Icefield.

A group of us stayed at the hotel for a few nights. The hotel was very comfortable and felt like a home. The rooms were very nice and the beds comfortable. What added to the experience were the little touches and imenities which can be found all around (like bunnies and the dog in the yard and all of the small extras available at breakfast). The included breakfast was wonderful. Nice box lunches can be made by you in the morning for a small fee. There is well working internet on site. The staff and owner, Sarah, were great to deal with, always accomodating and very friendly. The Salmon Bake restaurant which is directly next door and within a very short walking distance also offered excellent dinner meals at a reasonable price. Overall a fantastic experience and one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Would definatelty stay again on any future visits.

We stayed for 4 nights in July and couldn't have been happier. We actually booked into one of their cabins on the property but due to a booking complication, the cabin we requested was not available. Sarah, the owner, went above and beyond to re-arrange other reservations in order to accommodate us at the Lodge in a more spacious room without having to move during the 4 days. The rooms were spacious, clean, and well appointed, and breakfast (hot or cold) was included each morning. The Salmon Bake restaurant on the property was also great. We loved the location, less than 5 minutes outside the heart of Seward (and the summer crowds), on the road to Exit Glacier. Would definitely stay again when back in Seward.

The rooms were very comfortable and the location was slightly farther away from all the cruise tour operators launch area but easy to find. It is a new hotel but built with a vintage bed and breakfast feel to it. Highlight of the stay was the breakfast served the next morning, apart from the cold cereal and muffins available, the hostess was ready to serve us any hot meals we prefer (eggs, waffle, etc) which we really enjoyed. The property is very family friendly but be careful not to run over any of the rabbits on location when you park / back out :-)

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. We could not have asked for a more comfortable place to stay. Clean rooms with very friendly staff. The Salmon Bake next door was a great place for dinner. The only thing we could of had was nicer weather but the is mother nature. We also loved the old time feel this place has that adds to it's charm and beauty.

Room Tip: Clean rooms and friendly staff!

I couldn't recommend a better place in Seward! The views are magnificent, the breakfast was yummy and the property bunnies are too adorable. The staff in one word were superb! We were double booked with another guest and were upgraded at no extra cost. If we ever come up this way from Arizona again we will definately book this lodge again.
