Staff were very friendly and helpful. I visited in March and the parking lot was plowed and easy to access. Lobby and room decor had a charming and cozy style while providing modern amenities. It took less than a minute to walk from the hotel to the shore of the beautiful Seward waterfront. There were several restaurants in walking distance, and it was only a few minutes drive to reach the city's grocery store.

This is a fine hotel down near the downtown waterfront, close to bars, the Alaska SeaLife Center — all within walking distance. The main harbor, glacier cruises and fishing charters are about a mile or so away, but Seward’s downtown amenities are close at hand. Rooms are quiet; blackout curtains are good, decor and artwork is historical and fun. No complaints whatsoever!
