Very disappointed!!! Cost us 450.00 for two filthy rooms; dead bugs in the sheets, toilet leaked causing the bathroom to smell like urine, floors were black with dirt, and Lady at the front desk was rude. We would have been better sleeping in a tent...More

I do not recommend this inn. The room at this inn was dirty. The rug had not been vacuumed. Tha bathroom floor was dirty and so was the bathtub. Also, someone entered my room with the do not disturb sign hanging on doorknob. Very disappointing.More

Not worth the money. Poor service. Dirty. We slept on top of our sleeping bags. Very expensive for what you get. Wi-Fi horrible. Loud street. No A/C. Room was hot even with window open. Plenty of other options in Seward, AK.

Not well managed. Poor lady running the place was frazzled and exhausted. Bathroom was dirty (Toilet was not clean-catch my drift). Counters not clean. Can't imagine anything was cleaned properly. Place is ghetto stay elsewhere.

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.
