We loved Valdez, a relatively quiet frontier location where the hotel overlooked the quiet fishing port. The hotel itself was relatively basic but had all the amenities you could ever need. As well as the very friendly, helpful staff, there was a well-equipped laundry and a restaurant bar that serves an amazing seafood paella. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Sitting down in the evening we counted six glaciers – now that is a room with a view.

This the perfect place to stay in Valdez easy walk to the hole town. The harbor is the setting when you walk out of the hotel. Restaurants and fishing are all within just a short distance. Beautiful mountains surrounding hotel also make it breathtaking. We only had breakfast there but it was very good.

Adorable and affordable, we love staying here when we come to Valdez. I live a few hours away in a rural community so we come to town for errands and appointments. I've been looking for a reliable spot to stay and am so glad I found this! I can bring my dogs, the rooms are well equipped and the restaurant is DELICIOUS. Always a relaxing time in an otherwise hectic trip.

Nice little hotel to spend an evening in. Accommodations were decent. Room for improvement but no complaints. Breakfast that was served was average as well. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping which was nice. Right next to the harbor so that was nice.

Forget about getting any sleep if you are unlucky enough to be stuck on the first floor. You can hear every step, bump, voice, door shutting etc from the floor above. I heard footsteps all night long. The rooms are old, stale, and smell bad. Seriously, pass on this place if you can.

We booked the only suite in the hotel nearly a year in advance. There wasn't much point as there was no view to speak of, definitely not of the harbor, and the balcony and chairs were covered in bird droppings. The hotel does not have an elevator and suite was located 2 1/2 flights up. Desk clerk at least helped us with our bags on check-in or we never would have made it. Their website should state no elevator. When we checked out a small lady was on duty so we had no one to help with the bags and it was a massive ordeal to get them down that long flight of steps. Suite was spacious and TV was large. Oddly, there was a whole wall of closet space, why I have no idea. At least they had several luggage racks so I could actually sit on the couch for a change. Room had a microwave and ref., and a DVD player, but no safe. Also had no A/C and temp was impossible to regulate. Mattress was the hardest one we had on a two week trip. Curtains weren't big enough to cover the sliding glass doors. A two foot section stuck out of the other end from where you pulled the curtain. On the other hand, there wasn't enough lighting in the room to see what you were doing with all the lights turned on, especially in the closet area, there were no lights. Water in shower was either scalding or cold, no in between, had to keep adjusting the knob. Toilet paper holder was broken and end kept falling off. Bathroom door would not stay open and it was very stuffy in there. Breakfast was decent. They had real eggs and a choice of plain or mixed with spinach, onion, and cheese. They had bacon and sausage and potatoes, biscuits and gravy, and pancakes in addition to breads, yogurt, and fruit cup, plus some apples and oranges. Only place we stayed on a 2 week road trip that had real plates and silverware. They also had gloves and hand sanitizer to use, but no one was. We came back from our glacier cruise on the 2nd day of our stay and asked the front desk for clean towels. When we got to the room we discovered that we didn't need them as the maid had come and serviced the room. When guy came with towels we told him we didn't need them after all because the maid had been there. He seemed VERY surprised, and said," What, the maid came?" as everything stated that there would be no stay over service. It was nice to have a clean room for a change.

We visited the restaurant and sat at a table that had a bar in it for 10 min before someone came over. When she came she asked what can I get you to drink, I stated we will start with water and can we see a menu. Next thing I know another woman came over and yelled at us and said if we don't order something from the bar we can leave and go to the other dining area and wait in line, she was really rude! We got up and went to the other part of the room and they said it would be about 30 min before we could get a table, so we left and told everyone on the bus the next day about the treatment we received. Not nice way to treat visitors!

Great location. Ok beds. We kept having problems with our room key and it finally stopped working. The desk staff also could not get it. We had to pry the room open and switch rooms. The staff was helpful in this manner and we did receive compensation. Breakfast was typical

was nice overlooking the pier & shopping at the near by shops. Close to my family that live there so it was easy for us to stay at your hotel. Also easy to drive around to nearby Visitors Center which was very interesting.

I always get a little bit anxious when I see a BW on my escorted tour iternary. But this one was very good. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, was on 1 st floor - no airco but felt safe for open window at night. People in the lobby always friendly, greeting people. Breakfast ok. The town is beautiful, a must visit in Alaska
