Our party of four had two rooms located in the "historic side" of the hotel. The room was small and in desperate need of refreshing. Decor could be described as kitchy at best. Unlike some of the historic rooms, both couples had a tiny, but updated bathroom. The dorm size refrig doubled as a bedside table. The mattress was very...

At first the ecclectic decoration in the lobby stroke us! But the hotel is very nice!!! Lovely room, excellent service! Kind reception staff that helped us through our stay. They alao delivered our luggage to the cruise ship pier for free and in a timely manner which was greatly appreciated!!!

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, we were there in August 2016. We stayed in a corner room by the hotel sign. My recommendations as a hotelier myself are as follows, and are based upon our spending about $300/night for 2 nights: I'd change out the coffee maker for a Keurig or Nespresso machine; I'd get the WiFi fixed...

Tried to check in a 5 PM but our room was not ready. Room they gave us overlooked an orange metal room (about 10 feet from the window). That would have been ok but we paid $319 for one night. Hotel is very old. Dates back to 1905 for the Old Wing & the New Wing built in the 80's....

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. It's a typical old style hotel. The room was on the ground floor with private bathroom. Small, but clean. Could use a facelift. The mattress was very soft and this was not good for my husband's back problems. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Enough parking around the hotel. The hotel is...

Had one night before a whale watching tour into Kenai fjord. Old but cool. Had everything we needed. Know that the place is aged but has been kept up and is clean. The only real negative was that we could hear some loud mouths in the hall in the morning...but we were already up. If you want to sleep in...

This hotel is old. The regular rooms are fine but beware of the "historic wing." The rooms look like something in a mental hospital and share the corridor with restaurant tables- yes- weird and loud. The staff were stand off ish but I think it's because they are probably tired of hearing the guests complain about how bad these rooms...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Seward. We had a double room in the historic wing with private bathroom. The hotel is conveniently located. We appreciated the typical ambience and the fact that our room, despite small, was clean. The drawbacks are the overall smell of old building (maybe some refurbishment would help) and the breakfast at the near restaurant...

This place needs major facelift. Maybe a little paint & carpet cleaning to start. Had to have front desk 'flip' a switch somewhere in the bowels of the building to get heat going in our room, TV did not work, hallway smelled kinda stinky & had to haul luggage up stairs since elevator did not exist on the wing we...

The location downtown is ideal for the sea life center, downtown shops, restaurants and brewery that is only 1 block over. It is 1mi to the marina for fishing excursions and day cruises. Plenty of parking. Friendly staff. Our room was small for the price paid, but we were there during the Salmon Derby which I'm certain inflated prices. No...
