And we just now checked out. We stayed in a suite on the upper floor - had rooms B & C. The view was incredible. Shower was hot, beds are so comfortable. And the furnishings? BEAUTIFUL. The manager Jesse was professional and friendly. He had breakfast (fruit, breads, coffee, juice) avaialble every morning. The only downside would be the terrible...

Stayed in the North and South room the end of June. The lodge definitely has the best views and a decent breakfast, however, you need to decide if you are willing to overlook everything else for those views. Our room had a tiny shower with a showerhead about 5 ft high. No soap, no shampoo, no cleaning or beds made,...

The Saltwater Lodge is located right on the water. When we booked our room, we knew it did not have a view, but we also only paid $109/night. I don't know how much the rooms with a view were. It was a simple room with double bed + twin bed, small bathroom with toilet and shower and a closet. We...

Just stayed there last 2 nights. The place is small out-of-the-way and on a terrible dirt road to get to it. When you book, make sure you ask which room you want, one with the view or not. Trust me do not spend extra for the view, you can walk a few feet from your 'non-view' room to get the...

I don't remember which room we had, but I think it was their best room. It was up high and had an incredible view of the bay. It had 3 bedrooms, but it was just me and my wife and only like $150 in late May. We watch several sea otters in the bay right in front of the lodge...

Alaska Saltwater Lodge is a great place to stay! It is just outside the city, right on the water. Our suite had big windows looking out onto the water. I wish that I could visit every weekend. Even though it was raining, the experience was great! We drove down from Anchorage for a girls weekend and had a blast!

The Saltwater Lodge is a great place to stay in Seward. Located right on Ressurection Bay, the views are Spectacular. Our room was very large and had views that were breathtaking. Breakfast was also perfect to get the day started. We also booked our day long wildlife/glacier view through them. It was a spectacular day!! Orcas,puffins, black bear, star fish,...

This is NOT the Hilton. As others have noted, it's down a couple of miles of dirt road, and as we took the jog into the immediate area I thought "what have we done?" Then we pulled up into a small lot to an all-log place. No one to greet us, but a note on the wall with instructions. Tired,...

OK- before I write anything else. I will agree with the negative reviews about the noise. Bring ear plugs!! But other than that, I can't imagine there is a better place to stay in Seward. The lodge is super nice- first of all. It is clean, and located right on the water. The view from our room was absolutely fantastic-...

In planning our trip to Seward, I read other folks' reviews on TA, and was a bit concerned. But my husband and I had no trouble connecting with the owners back in March when I made the reservations, and our stay was fabulous. When we arrived our name was on a tag board with our room number, and the key...
