Stayed here with a friend on a road trip through the Kenai peninsula. We stayed in the old part of the hotel, where the walls were paper thin, the phone was from 1982 and we could hear our neighbor snoring all night. For $99 it was the cheapest in the town, but I wouldn't recommend for anyone who plans on... More

I'm not going to beat around the bush, this place is a little eccentric, but overall we really enjoyed our stay here. Pros: Very comfortable bed, large rooms, huge bathrooms, microwave, coffee maker, interesting and eclectic lobby. Cons: The decor of the rooms is a bit dated and old school with fake flowers, lots of rococo looking pillows, we had... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Seward. The rooms are large, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel is filled with lots of historical information and decorated to the gills making for a warm festive environment. The staff in the hotel lounge/restaurant were very attentive and the breakfast was delicious. The winter rates are great for the service.

While I had eaten in its Ms. Gene’s restaurant during a day-trip from Homer some years ago, this was a first over-night stay. Knowing its attached restaurant was then and still is now excellent, I was attracted by the “Victorian” ambiance, its variety of rooms, the taxidermy studio, its uniqueness and the helpful staff who addressed my questions from thousands...

Dear Bertram28, I sincerely appreciate your review. Hopefully it will help others to understand that the hotel is diversified in room styles and has 2 separate wings. Each wing offering room styles with varying amenities at different price levels to meet their needs. Yet, they share the common areas of the lobby , decor , Ms Gene's Place restaurant and... More

We went to Seward on a whim and the last room that was available in the whole town was at the quaint hotel called, Hotel Seward. It is a little bit older and the decor looks like your grandma's house but it was nice and clean. We couldn't be too picky since that was our only choice but it was... More

Check was super easy, it was quiet and clean. We stayed for what night with three kids. The kids loved it, the beds were super comfy. And the price was much better than some of the big box neighbors. And of course the kids love the lobby with the taxidermy animals they can pet. We loved not having to drive... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Seward. The room was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful. There are lots of interesting buildings and walk routes to explore, and the Sea Life Center is just around the corner.

Alaska is expensive... and I knew when we booked this place that it was "old school" and we would have to share a bathroom. We were encouraged by the good reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately I still didn't feel that it was worth $100 a night in the off season. Problems: The walls are paper thin; one of the two... More

Fishing with the hotel's resident guide Wes was fantastic. He is an exceptional guide because he understands customer service and adapts the day to best fit his clients.
