We were very excited to stay at the Exit Glacier Lodge based on the reviews that we read. However, our experience was a bit different. We arrived early (approximately 12:30) because we rode the train from Anchorage, so expected a delay to check-in, but when we arrived, there was no one at the front desk to assist us. A group of visitors were playing cards in the meeting room and they told us that the front desk staff were expected back at 2:00, but someone had checked them in and their room was being prepared. So, we waited... and waited... and waited. Several staff came in and out, but no one offered to help us or the other couple waiting in their lobby. A few minutes after 2, we noticed someone at the desk and ask when we could check in. She was friendly and checked us in at that time.
The cabin that we stayed in appeared to be made from plywood and was small, but clean. The heater didn't seem to be working and front desk staff were prompt to check, adjust it, and even offered to change it out for a new heater. The original heater did begin to work as expected and, though it took a while, the room was more than warm enough. The following day, the front desk staff stored our luggage while we were waiting to board our cruise.
Overall, the experience was less than we expected, but adequate for our needs.

Good choice for Exit Glacier hike
Our second-floor room was fairly large. Clean with comfortable beds. No elevator though, and the steps were steep in this old-fashioned building. You can purchase microwavable food for breakfast but they serve only coffee and tea downstairs. Location is next to the salmon bake at the start of the short road up to the Exit Glacier Visitor Center.

This lodge was so nice to stay in. We were in cabin #3 and it was so cozy and comfortable. The lobby was so nicely decorated. We also ate at the restaurant next door. Such good good and service. Now when we stay at a regular hotel in a bit disappointed. We loved our stay. Also, we drove down the road to Exit Glacier and had to stop for a moose.

A great option in Seward
Rustic, but fully equipped lodge on Exit Glacier Road, just a few miles from the center of Seward. Very comfortable and quiet. Friendly and competent front desk staff. No breakfast provided, but a few things (e.g., muffins) are available at reasonable cost. Conveniently located next to a local restaurant and salmon stream, and a short walk to a terrific creperie/Belgian waffle place for breakfast.

We stayed in the house that is part of the lodge. There were 6 of us with plenty of room and sleeping space. The back yard has a fire pit with plenty of wood for an evening fire. The hospitality shown by the staff was fantastic, I highly recommend staying here if you are traveling to Seward.
