Very friendly staff , conveniently located

Tired old place. The lobby is cute but the rooms are barely adequate with no security and really no service. The location is good.

The lobby was nice, room was small but worked. Staff were very kind & helpful.

Location is great but there is a mouse in the room!

Hotel for the night before a sea kayak adventure. Hotel was somewhat dated but in a small seaside town. Everything was clean and comfortable. Fulfilled our needs.

Nice hotel with great location we expected 2 Queen beds however had 2 full beds. Very small room and sink area was tiny. Breakfast was perfect before race and fully stocked.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very small for 4 people with exceeding little sink space in room and small bathroom. Limited walking space between beds and tv/drawer area and no closet. HVAC in room pretty pound and kept turning on/off at night. Very nice breakfast.

The young kids at the desk are more interested in playing video games, the hotel was not busy and I asked if I could get late check out and was denied.rooms are tiny overpriced

Great location in Seward. Right across the street from the bay and the Sealife Center. We stayed for one night before getting on a cruise. Older hotel but did fine for the night. Free shuttle from train to hotel and hotel to port. Breakfast included as well.

we we're hopeful because of its location that this would be worth the money but what a mistake. completely outdated interior. rugs were old Howard Johnson looking rugs and bathroom was small and used the plastic paneling.gross! Overall the hotel was dirty and to top it all off the staff was as rude as I've met. do yourself a favor another place.

The only good thing about the hotel is the location. The staff and manager are rude and unaccomodating. Booked for 2 nights they wouldn't let me stay in the room I booked and moved my stuff to a room with one bed for 4 people after I spoke to the girl at the front desk several times. Paid $400 for a 3 star hotel and was shocked how awful the staff was. Checked out and called orbitz for a refund and they said I was right and the manager was rude to them too- ended up at the Alyeska for 1/2 the price much nicer hotel with nicer staff.

$400/night and You park two blocks away on the street. Nobody to help with luggage or drop off. Do not recommend. Rooms are run down. Noisy AC units.

This hotel served our needs, and we enjoyed the convenience of its location in downtown Seward. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. The key issue with the hotel was that everything was small: the rooms, the beds, the bathrooms, the breakfast area. Everything was quite cramped, which was disappointing in that the costs were very high for this hotel. Despite enjoying the location, I doubt we'll return.

It was a typical Best Western standard hotel. The location is good where is close to some unique shops and restaurants. But if you want to go to town where the cruises and ships are, it is about 15-20 minutes walk. Overall an okay experience for us!

We had a very enjoyable stay though only for one night. The hotel had just reopened and everything was beautiful. Would have loved to have heard someone playing the grand piano in the foyer. Overall very comfortable, engaging and helpful staff. Thank you. Kate and Peter Lumsdaine ( from Australia)

The staff were very friendly in providing all the information. Do not miss the walk outside the hotel, beautiful lake and mountains covered with snow. The rooms were neat and had microwaves to heat food.

The staff was very friendly and helpful when we had a small problem that the manager personally helped us with and offered to help us move rooms. The hotel is in walking distance from a lot of the town. Great free continental breakfast. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable beds with refrigerator in room. Seward is a beautiful town and incredible seafood.. Must see the aquarium. We had a inward facing room without a window but we didn't mind because we were only there to sleep. Price was good for the time of year. We will return.

The room was clean, modern and well maintained. The view was absolutely wonderful with a window looking out on Resurrection Bay and a wrap-around balcony with a mountain view. The staff was friendly.
