I stayed at this location for 3 nights this September and it was excellent! The lady on the reception was lovely and very accommodating! The rooms were lovely and warm, beds super comfy and the shower was AMAZING! If you are planning a trip to Seward I would recommend this hotel whole heartedly! Great hotel for a very reasonable price!!

The location is not the greatest unless you have a car, but that’s something you opt for when you book. Now, staying in a suite where the bedroom has no window and the only cooler is an ancient fan is the best steam room simulator you can get if you stay during summer. To have a full kitchen at your...

OK - Let's start by saying that this is Alaska and that the hotel season is very limited to the time the tourists *(especially for the cruise ships) are in town, The hotel is located within walking distance of downtown and close to the harbor (but not within an easy walking distance for cruise passengers and there is no shuttle...

A friend and I stayed the nights ok July 3 & 4 this year, to watch the Mt Marathon race and take part in other festivities in town. The Harborview Inn ended up being a great location for us because it is about half way between the harbor and the downtown area - but a bit of a walk to... More

As many of the other reviewers have mentioned, the hotels in Seward are nothing special. I didn't really know what to expect when we booked here, but we reserved the family room, which had 4 bedrooms and 6 beds. When we checked in the woman at the counter told us there would be an extra fee for our children because... More

All of the hotels are pretty casual in Seward, a really lovely town with breathtaking views of the sea and the mountains and plenty to do with great restaurants for casual dining (Chinooks is the best) and quaint art shops for browsing. You won't find luxury in Seward, so get ready to settle for clean. As for this hotel, the... More

This was nice place and the price was much better than near the harbor. Close to the harbor and in walking distance to all the shops on the Harbor. Coffee maker no breakfast here. Nice wooden deck. On the main road and Subway is just down the road handy for breakfast or lunch.

Arrived in Seward late at night with plans to go to the Aquarium in the morning. The front desk was closed but they called to arrange a late check-in when we had not gotten there in time. We found our way to the room with a provided map and had a great night sleep! Could not have asked for a... More

You get what you pay for at Harborview Inn. The staff is friendly and the room is clean. However, there were a few things missing that would've made our stay better. The windows in our small room did not have blackout shades on them, which meant we had about 22 hours of daylight shining in our windows. It also was... More
