An excellent, central location in the heart of Seward, an easy walk to the train depot (altho they do provide a shuttle service too), a doable but not such great walk to the cruise ships (true of all the hotels here), and most other parts of Seward (especially close to most of the restaurants/bars you'll want to visit).
A basic kind of place. The room we had in the back annex (which beats the front part on the highway I would think) was generic and characterless, a step above Motel 6 but not by a lot, clean and comfortable enough, but no frills, to say the least. No breakfast, but a coffee maker in the room (which didn't work, but it was replaced when I left a note on it); my wife's a tea drinker, so wasn't thrilled that no tea bag was provided as well. Our train arrived early, so we had to check our bags, which was fine, but the staff seemed irritated when we had to ask them to open the storage room to retrieve an item or two for our days activities. Overall, the front desk staff seemed rushed and bothered to have to respond to our questions...certainly not gracious and welcoming, but we're talking generic motel here.
In Seward (basically a strip in a stunning natural setting, true of many Alaska towns), the Kenai Fjord tour is a must: one of the highlights of our trip, just stunning. For Exit Glacier, call the Exit Glacier Shuttle Service for a cheaper alternative to a tour ($10 round trip), as you don't need a tour for that. Ray's near the hotel is a good choice for drinks, with a great bar scene and open later than most places here, but the food was mediocre at best.
Bottom line with this place: great location, don't expect much (but then, you're not here for the room anyway, right?).
