“Seriously loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

Needed a place to stay in Seward and the traditional hotels were booked. I found this place on Trip Advisor and ssoooo happy that I did. From the moment we walked in, I knew it would be a great stay. There were fun pictures in the halls depicting historical Alaska and many animal mounts throughout. The room was spotless, but the best part was when i climbed into bed at night --- super comfy!! I have to say it reminded me a lot of a Hampton Inn, nice beds and waffles in the morning. The difference, they make the waffles for you! I also loved the fact that this hotel was outside the city because it was near everything we wanted to do: Exit Glacier and Seavey's Ididaride. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Our room was on the parking lot side away from the restaurant and was super quiet, we even slept wit...

The accommodations are gorgeous. The beds and linens are über comfortable. The breakfast is delicious. And most of all, the host is so accommodating. This is hands down, the best deal in Seward! Please don't waste your time and money somewhere else. Plus, they can book your tours with a discount.

We stayed here for several days prior to getting on a cruise, they were so welcoming and friendly. We arrived late and the desk clerk loaned my husband her personal car to drive into town to pick up a rental car!
They set up a spread with all types of meats, cheese, snacks, etc at 5 AM so the fishermen
could make lunch for the day. They let us use laundry facilities before we left. There was nothing we needed that they didn't help with.
Can't say enough, will stay there again for sure!!
And great food next door

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in July, 2012. It was just great. Very convenient to town and Exit Glacier. The rooms are comfy. The owner is very friendly and chatty, as are the desk people. They were very helpful with dining suggestions and even gave us the use of their laundry in the evening. The continental breakfasts were perfect for us to start our days off. I would highly recommend Exit Glacier Lodge to my friends as a great place to stay.

Our daughter got married at a nearby hotel, but since we are from Florida, there were only 24 guests for the wedding, and we all stayed at Exit Glacier Lodge. It was amazing; we got to sit on the front porch, got served breakfast, and when the mother of the bride lost a button on her dress 30 minutes before the wedding, the owner of the lodge helped us out with a needle and a safety pin. What a great place to stay, and if we ever get to AK again, we would definitely stay there. It was very personable, and all of us who attended the wedding were made so welcome by all of the staff there. Great place to stay!! The owner is especially attentive, and handles everything that you need.

I recently got married in Seward and 24 of my family and friends stayed at the Exit Glacier Lodge. We had the most memorable time. The owners and staff were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for our special day. The rooms were clean and continental breakfast was great. Also has a great restaurant attached with great food, beer and atmosphere.

Facility is close to new, rooms are clean and decorated in a lodge style. Beds are comfortable.

Continental breakfast was very good and included fresh waffles cooked by friendly staff.

Staff at the front desk were helpful and booked a Kenai Fjords tour for us. We saved about $40 on the tour by booking through the hotel.

The restaurant next door was great and at times staffed by the same friendly folks who are running the hotel.

It's about a 10 minute drive to Exit Glacier, 5 minutes to the harbor.

My only complaint was about the heat. I don't know if the people below us were cranking up the heat or what, but we had a hard time keeping the room below 75. This being Alaska, there is normally no need for A/C. We eventually found a working solution by opening the window a crack (any more would let too much road noise in) and then opening the hotel room door a crack to get some cross ventilation. BTW we felt perfectly safe in the hotel and didn't have any problems opening the room door overnight.

Room Tip: Might want to get a first floor room. We were on the second floor and had trouble cooling the room...
