Decent Seward hotel

Posted Nov 28, 2016
This hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of the small downtown of Seward, close to restaurants, cafes, shopping, the water at the inlet, and hiking trails up mountains nearby. They seem to have started to work on some improvements, since the building is quite old, but it probably still needs some work. Room was pretty small, but decent, fairly clean and comfortable. If you want the feel of Victorian era coastal Alaska, then this hotel hits the spot.

Good place to stay in Seward

Posted Aug 27, 2016 on Hotels
In Seward for two days particularly for the Glacier tour and Sealife Center. No breakfast at the hotel, instead they gave us vouchers for a good diner about a mile away. no problem for us because we were to be in that area both mornings. There is a free shuttle that runs every 30 min with a stop in front of the hotel. The physical structure could stand some updating but everything worked and the bed was comfortable enough. We were not there for luxury.

We stayed there 1 night. After getting of the cruise. We got not check in early and could not leave pur bags as no one was there to look after them or store them so had to take them with us till 3 pm. Apart from that food was good.

Old everything.

Bed needs replaced. Not well cared for and look like it needed up dating.
