One night stay

This is quite expensive even for Alaska. We only needed a room for one night as our original choice was booked for our third night in Seward and our last day was a whale/glacier small boat cruise. We really just wanted a clean, comfortable place to sleep and regroup before heading home to Ohio after 2 weeks in Alaska. Our room was clean and comfortable. For this price the pancakes should not be bland and a waffle maker would be a good addition. The toilet seat would not stay up and the room temp was set at 65° when we arrived...a bit chilly for day time. The harbor location meant nothing to us but it would to some.

Good stay in Seward

This Holiday Inn is easy to find in this small town and is in a convenient location to the other businesses. They had an adequate swimming pool and hot tub as advertised. The desk staff was very friendly. The complimentary breakfast was very good and the wait staff was helpful and courteous. Everything was fine but, Alaska is more expensive and this hotel in a semi-remote location was no exception. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to other travelers.

Comfortable and Next to the Water

Not the cheapest, but ccomfortable. Right next to the water and quiet. Pool area was small and no gym was available, but we were really only in Seward for one day for a Kenai cruise trip so it wasn't a big deal.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The hotel is right next door to the Kenai Cruises so it good if this is what you are planning. There are also two good seafood restaurants next door, but the "downtown" is a walk.

Scenery times ten

Will they let me upload a pic from my room? The picture they use is super-lame. The view from your room is a ten on the scale. Great room, scenery from God's scrapbook

Not helpful

The hotel was empty ( 10%) I asked for a room change at check-in to get another view but receptionist advised that could not make any changes as purchased through O. Tried to reason but could see it was not going anywhere - so dissapointed with lack of flexibility given how empty the place was.

Dirty hotel

This was not my first trip to this hotel. But my experience this time almost left me speechless. When we checked in at 6pm (which was a good experience) we went straight to our room. My wife lay on the bed and I used the restroom. After, I put down the lavatory lid, to the sight of brown stains on TOP of the lid, which looked like excrement - but I told myself that surely couldn't be the case. (Now, I hope the following isn't too much info for you!!). I kind of assumed the stains were old, and permanent but for some reason I wetted by finger and started to rub the stain - which immediately started to shift with no effort. My worst fears were being realised, and a sniff of the stain confirmed that this really was something that needed to be IN the lavatory, and not on top of the lid! The young girl at reception was very sweet, but with her broken English I think she struggled to understand my complaint. She spoke to some guy in the back office, and as a result we were moved to a different room (the very least I would have expected). Because the new room was overlooking the harbor, I got the impression that I was supposed to be very grateful for this - even though it was getting dark, we were leaving first thing next day, and so a harbor view was pretty much irrelevant to me. As I was leaving our initial room, the guy from the back office turned up with a cloth and some cleaning spray. He immediately got to work on the lavatory seat, and started muttering that "he didn't know what the cleaning guy was playing at, and he was gonna "get it", tomorrow" - or words to that effect. Actually, at that point a sincere apology would have been more welcome, but no - so I left and went to out new room. Apart from this incident, everything at the hotel was great - but our stay was ruined because it was very difficult to convince ourselves that the hotel really was clean. What other horrors were lurking?? I'm a visitor to Alaska, and I'm sure this isn't indicative of hotel standards generally. But, I was very disappointed - back in the UK I think I would have immediately been offered some kind of financial recompence. Here all I got was a half-hearted apology. And, all this for $260 per night!!!
