We stayed here while in Seward. It wasn’t terrible, but I would definitely stay somewhere else next time. Our room had what appeared to be new poorly installed carpet squares, one of which wasn’t connected to the tack strip out of the bathroom so I caught my toe on it and managed to trip. We had 2 nice bed side lamps, and on one side of the bed it couldn’t even plug in, so I guess it was decoration? We had one plug accessible so that makes charging devices challenging. There were no overhead lights, only two lightbulbs literally hanging from the wall which didn’t even put out any light. I wouldn’t recommend staying here.

Don’t

Morgan at front desk was helpful at check-in. Best toilet paper and decent towels on our trip. Only nice things I can say. Carpet stained, bathroom tiles covered in mildew, tub chipped and stained, shower head too low (even for me at 5’2”), tv useless, bed cover old and worn, lumpy bed and pillows, sketchy door lock and way overpriced. Plus, they overcharged me after I canceled a second room, within the time limit. Good thing they’re closed for the season. Don’t go here.

This is a motel first of all, not an inn. Looks terrible on the outside but we were trying hard to not allow this to spoil our expectations. The outside door had broken shades, still trying to not judge. But the inside we were still not prepared for. Broken electricity outlet, heating cover just hanging there exposing the insides, dusty lamps, some lamp covers damaged etc. It looked like someone was in a drunken rage and destroyed the room. This was nothing in comparison with when i peeled the comforter - big yellow stain right there under the sheets. At this point we stormed out, found another hotel and told the girl in the office that the room was unacceptable and we need a refund. She did not contest this request so it probably was not the first time.

Great location but beware….

We booked a room (101) for a one night stay. Granted hotel rooms are limited but this $291 room was terrible! The place smelled musty, back window cracked, curtain only covered 3/4 of window, bed pillows were the lumpiest I have ever felt, bathtub was old and drain rusty, toilet tank dripped water, no bath rug, white bath towel stained with black marks, trash was not emptied, and we ran out of toilet paper without a spare roll. (Luckily, my sister was in her rv and brought some over (office did not open til 10am)). The location, across from the harbor, is the only good part. Definite updates needed badly!!!

Needs everything

This place desperately needs everything. With the exception of the young lady who is the desk clerk and apparently maintenance person and otherwise jack of all trades, the place is close to terrible in every respect. The room is extremely small. The bathroom has a single tower rack And no place to hang anything in that room. That's no problem because there are only two towels, and no bathmat provided. The room smells like wet dog hair so whether they allow dogs or not they do not properly clean afterwards. there was one hand towel which you need to use as a bathmat if you choose to have a bathmat. There is no handicapped assist grab bar anywhere in the bathroom as well. there are virtually no electrical plugs available; One plug by the bed, good luck if you want to plug-in a CPAP or charging utilities. No plastic cups for water, no hairdryer. The building is extremely old and lack of maintenance shows. The parking lot is uninviting and overgrown with weeds. There is an extremely small television, it is viewable . There is a small refrigerator and microwave , a desk and a single chair. There is no closet, in fact there was a coat rack with five or six hooks. There are two dresser drawers and virtually no room to put anything else. From what I could tell the room was not entirely clean. There were crackers underneath the desk. There is no daily cleaning whatsoever. Fresh towels need to be specifically requested. The heat did not work and since this is Alaska that is a pretty big deal but they did provide and electric Pelonis heater. There is a single door key.
