Good location at the marina. Good breakfast. No problems with the room. Check-in not allowed until 4 PM. Large hotel, so not too much personal service.

Good location!

The room was nice, like others in the best western chain... The only problem was the noise in the room above us... I could hear their steps all the time... Bothering!!!!! Ask for a room on the 2nd floor.

Poor stay in Valdez

Our stay in this BW was the worst on our entire trip through Alaska. The room had a chemical smell like carpet cleaner and was tiny. The lady at check-in was very snippy when I asked a few questions. There is an adjacent restaurant that appears to be part of the hotel. Beware it is very expensive and has average to poor quality food. You would be better off going to the local Safeway. I would not recommend

Extremely friendly staff, everyone smiles and greets you all hours of the day. Room was warm, clean, and comfortable after a day of slogging through wet, sloppy snow.

Bunnies live on the grounds. They are many colors and sizes. Totally enjoyed watching them. Also enjoyed watching the fishing boats coming in and being unloaded.

Great staff, great room, great time!

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations or friendlier staff! We arrived at 4:30 in the morning after an all night drive to get to Valdez, and because I had called to tell them we wouldn't be arriving before then, we weren't charged for our first night's stay! The hotel was clean and quiet, and was in easy walking distance of restaurants and harbor cruises. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

Not a good experience

HEre's the problem. On-line the hotel indicated that it was "pet friendly". When I made the reservation on-line I was not asked if I would be traveling with pets. When I checked in at the hotel I was asked to sign a document saying that pets were only allowed in smoking rooms and there was an additional fee and a deposit required. I can live with the extra fee and deposit, but it should have been identified on line. I can not live with a smoking room as both my husband and I are allergic to smoke. To make matters worse, the hotel had no smoking rooms available, so we were not allowed to bring our 2 dogs into the hotel room. We were forced to leave them in our vehicle for the night. That is not acceptable. In addition, I prepaid $99.00 per night and when I checked it, I was asked to initial that the rate was $79.99 per night. SO I OVER PAID and I would like [...] to refund the $19.01 overcharge. I am not happy with this at all. Give potential customers the entire facts as they relate to pet friendly. Don't claim to be when you aren't!
