Hotel is within walking distance of the harbor and you could see it from our room if you leaned to the right a lot. Don't bet on a great view--it just doesn't have them.
Comparatively, the same rate as other hotels in Seward, but Alaska is so pricey! Not close enough to walk downtown without having a bit of a trek.
The linens felt AWFUL...to the point that I had to put a t-shirt next to my skin.
We had a maid's closet (or something of the like) on one side of our room and the hot water heater must have been in there because it would fire up like someone was showering next door and go off, and come on, and go off...in regular showering intervals. It was so loud that we had to crank the TV volume way up AND it woke me from a dead sleep after I'd taken Advil PM and put in earplugs. I went to the front desk to complain and they gave us another room in the other building just to sleep in. They said there was no water heater in there and they didn't know what it could be. Being told that nobody else ever heard that surprises us because I'm usually a deep sleeper!
Other than that, a safe place to stay. Basic, no frills, but easy. Ask for the rooms across the street.
