Location: middle of downtown.
Nicole, the girl at the coffee shop which the lodge owners also own was very unhelpful when I asked about checking in. The owners tell you to go to the coffee shop but if you happen to talk with the wrong person, you won't get much help. The lodge is VERY old, the room tilted (no.4), the lights and fan were working on and off. In need of major overhaul. Outrageous that they charge $139/nite for awful conditions like these.

Gorgeous suite with turn-of-the-century charmPosted Sep 10, 2015
If you are looking for an historic, true Alaska gold rush days establishment, this place is it! Our family really enjoyed staying in the Sunset Suite. Our unit had classic vintage touches (e.g., high ceilings, panelled doors, crown molding) with modern conveniences and flare. Owners and staff were welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. Nice touches such as offering a wine social for guests every night and breakfast coupons made us feel very welcome. Loved the selection of books in the room and the bag of freshly ground coffee in the kitchen. We'd visit again!!!

It's a nice Apt with kitchen. Walking distance to Sealife Center. Using the passcode saved time for check-in and check-out.

Perfect for Seeing SewardPosted Jul 10, 2015
Cons: We could hear music slightly from the coffee shop
Location: Go to Exit Glacier! we did a guided tour at 4pm. Awesome.
We bounced around from Anchorage to Seward and many spots in between. We looked for a place and everything seemed to be gone. This is a DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH! Great location and the room is more of an old style apartment. Very cozy and different. It sits over a great coffee shop. We wanted an early check in and they worked to help us. When we go back to Seward, we will likely choose this over a normal hotel. The owners give you codes to get in the front door and then to your room. Highly recommended.

Cute placePosted Jul 8, 2015
Pros: The apartment is lovly decorated. The king size bed in the bedroom is very comfortable.
Cons: Sofa bed needs to be replaced. Even we added an extra comforter, my kids can still fell the springs. The bathroom may need more lighting and a shelf.
Location: Location is great. It is in the downtown area. Close to everything.
The apartment is really original. It is on the top of a coffee shop. No front desk for the apartment. Over the kitchen window, we can see the beautiful mountains, and a bit of ocean through light poles. Free parking in the shop front.

I am so glad that I found this hotel. If you are looking for something totally unique the Sauerdough will not disappoint you. My husband and I stayed in the smallest room and we found it to be just perfect for our one night stay. The owners also own the Seabean cafe that is located next door. They left 5$ coupons for each of us and we thoroughly enjoyed a delicious breakfast there.

Plenty of room. Right downtownPosted Jun 30, 2015
The suit was spacious. One master bedroom. One small bedroom our kids fought over and a futon in the seating area. We appreciated cooking dinner and breakfast in the kitchen.

The Best!!!Posted Jun 24, 2015
We loved staying at Sauderdough Lodging in Seward! It was by far our favorite place we stayed on our trip to Alaska. The Sunrise Suite was perfect for us - spacious, comfortable, really clean. The owners couldn't have been nicer. The coffee shop downstairs is great, and we really enjoyed the town and all there was to do there. Everyone we met was really friendly and we left wishing we had one more day to spend there!

Sauerdough lodgingPosted Jun 16, 2015 on Hotels
The Sauerdough Lodging is an unusual hotel. It is only 5 rooms located next to a coffee shop in downtown Seward, Alaska. There is no real "service" as there is no staff. They give you a code for the locks and you check yourself in. It is very conveniently located and the coffee shop below is great for breakfast and lunch (they give you a voucher to cover part of your breakfast). The rooms are well equipped and ours had a kitchen (which we didn't use). We would stay there again given the opportunity.
