Basic accommodations that does that job for the price. Location is easily walkable to the waterfront and boat harbor. The included breakfast at a nearby restaurant gets you a combo of hot and cold items and was surprisingly good. We were assigned a room in the tiny strip of original rooms, but I would try to get one in the...

We had a wonderful experience in Seward staying here . Our room was clean and tidy and the front desk staff was very professional . They filled us in on what and where to go in the city to have a great weekend . Would definitely recommend this motel .

It was one of the most wonderful places we ever stayed. The view from the top floor rooms were mesmerizing. It was cozy, clean and sitting in the midst of all the scenic beauty. You will have fridge and microwave in room.

Seward is expensive in the summer, and this hotel is a good value for what it provides - a nice, clean, comfortable room but nothing fancy. The front desk clerk was very helpful and accommodating. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

The price of accommodation in Seward is not cheap and this was one of the cheapest would could find for a family on a budget. Room and bathroom was clean and an easy walk into town. The staff who managed the hotel were very nice people and even gave us a free breakfast which was wonderful. Thank you :)

Considering that there really aren't any cheap rooms in Alaska during the summer months, finding a clean hotel that isn't going to cost you an arm and leg is a bonus. If you're looking for a no frills room that is clean, then this is your place. The place is in need of some serious updating, but it also is...

We made a reservation but never got a confirmation e-mail, no matter how many times we called or left a message for them, they were never able to send a confirmation mail.

It was a basic Motel. I don't normally stay in Motels but there isn't much to choose from in Seward. The front desk lady was very nice. They let us check out late which helped a lot. The free shuttle in town takes you right next to the place. It was very basic accommodations but it works. It was hot...

We enjoyed sitting on the little balcony and watching the harbor. While the room was basic and not at all luxurious it was clean and did include free wi-fi and breakfast down the street. A good value for the money.

First I want to make sure that it's know we did not sleep in the hotel. When I booked the room I specifically asked for a king bed and when we got there they no longer had a king bed. He didn't have the decency to call me knowing that I had to have a king size bed! We had...
