“Okay experience”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

All in all it was okay. The rooms, we got two, were small for the price but all things in Alaska are expensive. The only complaints we have after two nights was 1) i asked about the gym, i was told by the front desk that the manager was too lazy to go to the gym,a block away, which is where you walk, to get any passes so a staff member has to walk anybody that wants to work out and pay for a day pass for the guest. Not real happy staff members about that. Not to mention that this is a small area and it has a FOR SALE sign in multiple windows.

The choice of restaurants are multiple. There are a few within walking distance, a few blocks, sort of nice. You can also drive to the harbor area and have a few more choices and gift shop choices, which around the hotel there are a few as well. We ate at Christo's which is one that serves about everything. The prices were a bit high. Food was good. We had the 12" pizza's times three, as well as other things. If you order this, one 12" is enough for two, if not three small eaters.

Hotel is clean. Beds and pillows were good. Bathrooms are small, sink is outside the toilet and shower/tub. Window air conditioners throughout, but we opened the patio door and my in-laws used opened their window in the room. ?Breakfast was good, not much to complain about there. The darkness of the rooms, not!!!! The curtains do not shut completely, in our room or my inlaws. And in June, it does not get dark at night. We put a suit case to partially close out some light on the end by one of the beds.

Good and clean overall. Would use again.

Room Tip: Ask for either an ocean view or a balcony looking out over downtown and the mountains.

Stayed 2 nights with family including 2 children under 3 y/0. Great staff. Nice and clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Fast elevator. Can't say enough about it. It is pricey but everything in Seward is pricey. Probably won't be coming back to Seward but if I do I'll stay here.

Clean, odor-free, quiet room with good bed and decent shower. Location is good, 10-minute walk to town, around the block from good restaurants, one block from Aquarium. Free shuttle. If we return to Seward, we'll stay here again.

Room are depressing, very awkward room layout. You are in a small town and get small town quality. Has a "downtown" location so has a variety of food choices. Alaska generally has lower quality hotels than the rest of the country and while this one is clean and relatively comfortable it is a small town hotel. I prefer the Holiday Inn Express in the boat harbor, still small town but room are more comfortable.

No real complaints about this basic hotel, the rooms are decent, and the hotel staff was very nice. The hotel is not inexpensive by any means, but the location is pretty good, you can walk to several good restaurants and to the little downtown. I thought it was a nicer location than being uptown on the little boardwalk. The breakfast served was also good, but again pretty basic,and what you would expect at tis type of hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the water, had a nice view.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus for two nights after our Alaska cruise. The hotel is very well located, downtown, near the Sealife Center. The staff was very pleasant, smiling and helpfull.
The bed and the pillows were comfortable, the breakfast, plentifull.
We had a room on the 3rd floor, with a mountain view. There was free wi-fi in the room.
There is a free shuttle that runs all day, which was very convenient. There is a stop at the Sealife Center, so it was perfect for us. There is also a stop near the Safeway.
There is a nice walkway near the water.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus.

We had booked for 2 nights at this hotel. Do not take the room's with out a view. We first booked for a room without a view and then upgraded to a ocean view room. The rooms are great with a great view of the bay, what else can we expect for Seward. If you do not like staying at B&B then this is a very good location. Its a short walk from the harbour. They also have shuttle busses which go to the harbour if you don't want to take your car. The breakfast was not great but would stay hear for the view.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 308 which has a great view.
