We thought it was fun staying in the train car (had stayed in another train car in Fairbanks on previous trip), and the location was so convenient - free parking in downtown Seward is sometimes iffy, and we could walk to everything we needed including the cruise. It was much quieter than I expected, too. Fun to look out on the harbor right from our window. I enjoyed the self-check in especially since you never need to worry about misplacing a key. There were a few minor issues - toilet paper ran out, soap in shower dispenser was empty. Also instructions on the heater were inadequate, we never figured out how to get it to stay on all night. Unable to report these items to the manager since we didn't discover them till after hours (not really emergencies so we wouldn't disturb her at home). All in all we had a good time there.
