“Harbor View with Orcas”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Room 108 is adorable, shaped weirdly, and a lot of fun. We could see orcas from our room and could walk to the sea life center. Highly recommend.

We arrived post cruise (7 of us), a bit travel weary and having not planned out this portion of our trip very well - the staff was so helpful and kind! And as I sat in the lobby I could see that they were this way with all of their guests - they really went the extra mile, making phone calls, arranging activities and transportation - they couldn't have been nicer.
The rooms are expensive, but looking around town, I think this is the best place to stay. Rooms are very comfortable with balcony, fridge and microwave. Breakfast was fine - muffins, bagels, waffles - I'd stay from the eggs (hard boiled and scrambled).
Across the street is a nice little park with the starting line for the Ididarod, and a 1 1/2 mile paved trail along the water - great place to stroll and look for whales and sea otters!

I haven't stayed in a best western for over twenty years. I was concerned, but we were traveling at the height of tourist season and this was the best of choices available. What a pleasant surprise! Our room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and we even had a little balcony with a view of the water.
Hotel staff was pleasant, especially the dear lady who looked after the breakfast setup. She was delightful. Breakfast was good, location was fabulous. Short walk to all of downtown and across the street from the amazing Alaska Sealife center.

Typical Best Western quality. Very nice continental breakfast. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and the Historic Ididorod trail.

We don't usually stay at Best Westerns, but there are not a lot of choices in Seward. We were pleasantly surprised! We had a great corner room over-looking the water with a small balcony. We were able to leave the sliding door open for fresh air, which was nice. The bed was comfortable--a huge plus for us. We travelled with another couple and in the evening after dinner, we'd hang out in the lobby in front of the fire place. The staff was very pleasant and always able to answer our questions. They have a complimentary shuttle that picks you up at the dock, we had come in from a cruise. Every hour until 8pm the free shuttle will take you to the small boat harbor for dinner or the train station or wherever you need to go, just sign up at the front desk. The shuttle driver was full of information too. Breakfast was just OK, I'd pass on the eggs and stick with waffles or cereal, but hey, it's free. The Sea LIfe Museum is just a block away. One disadvantage was that we could hear the music from a local bar at night, but we were so tired, we went right to sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on the third floor with a water view.

The hotel is centrally located in Seward within walking distance of Sea Life Center and downtown restaurants. Nice room but noisy in the mornings when tour busses depart. (Probably every day.)
Continental breakfast is okay, nothing special.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone.

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Edgewater Hotel for one night prior to starting a cruise from Seward to Vancouver.

The hotel is delightful - pleasant public areas, clean and comfortable room. The staff are extremely helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate. The hotel provides a courtesy minibus which collected me after I had dropped off our hire car and later transported us to the cruise terminal.

Highly recommended.
