Our room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We arrived after hours and the staff was nice enough to leave the key for us in a drop box. A breakfast voucher was included for a restaurant within a 5 minute walk, which was nice. The location is good, just off the main road; we had the window open...

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...

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...

Here is Expedia's policy - I hope this helps with cancellation. You may want to call Murphy's to ask what their cancellation policy if you cancel more than 30 days out from your reservation - the folks at Murphy's are really nice and have always been easy to work with. I've stayed there many times over the past 4 years.

Expedia Cancellation fees

We do not charge you a fee for cancelling your booking, but the hotel might. Check the rules and restrictions in your itinerary.


Most hotel rooms are fully refundable with no penalty fees if cancelled by the hotel's cancellation deadline. If you booked a non-refundable room, you will not receive a refund if you change or cancel the booking.

How it works

We process your refund on the day you cancel your booking, minus any cancellation fees charged by the hotel.

We apply refunds to your original payment card.

Most credit card companies post your refund to your account within 2 weeks, and it will appear on your statement within 2 billing cycles.

To check the status of your refund / credit, contact your bank / credit card company 7 days after we process your refund.

It should be. I think it depends who you make the reservation through. I made the reservation through hotels. com I think I had 48 hours before the reservation to cancel.
