“Very Nice...We Would Stay Again”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

We stayed here just one night on our Alska trip. It really is a mini resort. Nothing fancy, but I would put it up against other lodging choices in Seward.
Check-in was friendly. There is a small gift shop with candy, sweatshirts, t-shirts, postcards.etc. A computer is free to use there too. Alot of brochures on diff. tours in the area. You can get discounted prices on many tour & sites in Alaska. Our room was basic, but clean. We had some noise from our neighbor. I spoke to her about it and from then on it was quiet. Walls are thin. We are not fisherman, so we have never seen a fish house. It was something to see. Glad we did. There is a small bar/restaurant that had a pretty good crowd. Downtown Seward is just down the road though. Grounds are very clean. We are glad we stayed here.

If you are lucky enough to stay here you are lucky. The price was excellent. We were happy they gave us two rooms next to each other. Beds were very comfy. Be sure to go into the room off from the lobby .Beautiful fireplace. We also hadbreakfast here. It was self serve and meet our needs for I think either 9 or 10 dollars each. (Not positive on the price could have been less). Very friendly staff.

We went to the Seward Military Resort the last week of July with a 3 generation family group age 10-60. The staff are extremely accomodating, and the resort is a bargain. The buildings are older than most hotels, but well maintained, and in a prime location.
The discounted tours were all great, but the best experience by far was the deep sea fishing conducted by the resort itself. The fishing guides were experienced, patient, and determined to see that everyone had a great time, and the resort assists you in getting your catch home. It was our first deep sea fishing experience, and everyone caught their quota, including the 10 year old!

Room Tip: For the best value and experience, call a year in advance and ask for a townhome.

We spent 4 days in Seward recently and stayed at the Seward Military Resort. It's easy to find and just off the main highway. The grounds are very well maintained and lovely, and the front entrance is "grand" and beautiful. They have 2 laundry areas on-site, very clean restrooms, and the best Fish House! We did not know this Fish House allows you to bring your caught fish to clean, fillet, vacuum seal, and freeze - for free! The only charge is to purchase the bags - but they lend you everything else you need and provide a great place to do this work. This saves you a couple hundred dollars!

The townhouse was great - lots of space and clean. But they need to fix the pull out couch - too thin and old, making it very uncomfortable to sleep in.

We loved the kitchen - great to fix meals for the family without having to dine out all the time, and the appliance all worked great! A large screen TV and inside heating made it all so much nicer - even a private parking stall right outside the townhouse.

So if you're looking for a place to stay, you can't go wrong with this place - I'd return happily again.

P.S. The town of Seward is full of cute shops, friendly people, and lots of things to see and buy. They even have the friendliest post office people there!

Since this camp was renovated it has become a premier Military Camp. I have stayed in both a room and a townhouse. The camp is well kept and is actually pleasant to look at. Gone are all the old Quonset Huts that have been replace by modern hotel rooms and town houses.
The Halibut fishing boats are very nice with heated enclosed cabins and indoor toilets no longer is fishing done from open Boston Whalers. Each boat has an actual Professional Captain not a TDY soldier and very capable deck hands. The fish house is great there are knifes and cleaning areas with running water. For a small few you can purchase vacuum packing bags may be purchase for use with the industrial grade vacuum packers. The deck hand will help or completely clean your fish for you, this they do for tips.
The staff is very caring and efficient and provide great service. If you have the privilege to be able to use the camp do!

This is my second visit in two years. The staff is very friendly and professional. If you are looking for a great location with awesome accommodations, well this is the place. The fishing charters, fish cleaning stations, and freezers are all top notch! The laundry facilities are very clean. The lodge and bar areas are remarkable. You would not even know this was a fishing resort. This place even has free Wi-Fi ! MWR has done this facility well! I'll be coming back again. Make reservation well in advance.. Oh you have to be active duty/retired military / and or affiliated with the DOD to quality to stay at this location.

My husband, two daughters 11 and 9 years old and I stayed here June 25-26 - 2010 (made our reservations 11 months in advance). We had just gotten off the cruise ship and picked up our rental car then got to the resort at 1000 am. They had our room ready which was great. The room was big and clean. They had free internet and satellite TV which my daughters loved. The beds were comfortable and the room is very quiet. We heard no outside noise. It is located in a beautiful area that makes for a nice walk. Our first evening we walked back to the fish house after a fishing tour just unloaded and we were able to see them weigh the fish and look in as the fish were filleted for sending home.

The reservation desk area had free coffee and tea all day. A nice shop was also connected with tee shirts, sweatshirts, outdoor gear and snacks to buy. We took advantage of the on premises laundry and the grill one night. Basic bar food as they say but quite tasty and inexpensive for a quick dinner. They had a buffet breakfast too which was good. Hard to keep the food hot so the eggs were a bit cool but they did have make your waffles which were very nice and plenty of items to satisfy everyone.

They sell tickets to most of the tours out of Seward and we were able to get the all day Kenai Fjords National Park cruise at half price (Major Marine - excellent tour-highly recommend). Also got discounted tickets to the Alaskan Sea Life Center which was really great for families.

Everyone was very friendly and we highly recommend it. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.
