Best Western Plus Edgewater Hotel
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in Seward
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2014

As you can see from the picture on this site, only a few rooms on the right side face the harbor. The harbor is very active, with lots of seagulls and boats. The Marine Museum is right across the street (see attached picture) If you don't get a room facing the water, you might as well book something much cheaper up the street, for example, at the Seward Hotel.

We had an extra night in Seward and ended up at the Best Western. When we walked in at noon, the front desk receptionist said, "do you have any bags to check." It seemed like a standard answer they give everyone. We told her 'no' and wondered when our room would be ready. She responded, "4 p.m. and no earlier." We understand it takes time to clean and ready rooms but when we came back at 4, there was line that stretched across the lobby. I have never seen anything like this and my brother took a picture of the scene -- not pretty. If I owned this property, I would be pretty embarrassed.

Despite this, we did not think the hotel was a bad choice. The rooms have refrigerators, the cable is great and overall it is clean and comfortable. The internet computer in the lobby is not fast, so don't try using it. The location is pretty convenient, right downtown. Seward is kind of a cruise ship and fishing town with not much going on, so don't expect much here. Most businesses were for sale.

So overall, a mixed report for the Best Western. We probably won't be back.

I chose to stay here at the last minute. I wasn't sure I wanted to drive back to Anchorage after my 6 hour boat tour. I booked an interior room with no windows (except for the frosted glass that overlooks the lobby). My room was clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. It was nice to be able to walk out of the hotel and go across the street to overlook the bay. Breakfast was your standard Best Western breakfast. Lots to choose from with both the hot and cold varieties.
The staff was wonderful, even when they were busy. From check in until check out I felt like a valued guest.
I will definitely stay again.

A very nice experience. The location was in a good place for us to be able to walk along the beach and see other activities. Even though the staff was busy with other customers they were quick to provide what ever the need was we had very quickly. Having a breakfast available for us was a plus since it made it easier to start out morning off without having to rush around to go out and look for a place and then having to find a place to park.

My family and I stayed here three nights in July. I thought the hotel decor was cheerful, the rooms were clean ,and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom area was a little cramped.
We had a partial bay view which was very nice. The hotel is located in a quiet part of town.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The staff has been extremely helpful and friendly. The room is average, lacks AC but the hotel provides a fan in the room. There are limited hotels in the Seward area. The Best Western is one of the best places to stay. It is located by the bay. If possible book in advance to get a room with an ocean view. The hotel is pricey, but typical for many Alaskan towns. It may not be a good value for your money, in terms of amenities or ambiance, but it is a clean friendly place that is quiet. We used our rewards to get a free night the last time we stayed there.

I'd give it 3 for the hotel itself and 1 star for the view. Room is lovely with a balcony facing the bay, and we could just stay in the room and enjoy the view for a whole day. Lots of breakfast selections. Some of the staff are very nice and helpful and some are not. TV is not easy to use and wifi is painful having to input password dozens of times a day.

Room Tip: Room 309 has great view
