Great View and great location!...beautiful hotel, close to everything!...Exit Glacier is right up the street...We saw wildlife all around the property, Brown Bears, Moose,and Bald Eagles!..Hotel was very clean, well maintained!...staff were friendly and helpful...The restaurant and Bar on the property had excellent food and drinks...the coffee bar was overwhelmed by guests in the morning, but the coffee and breakfast choices were good...would recommend staying here.WiFi signal was weak.

Great location close to the town and Exit Glacier. The outside looked nice and rustic. The front desk people were very nice and friendly. Unfortunately, the beds were uncomfortable and the sheets did not fit properly, I had to remake the bed all night long or ended up sleeping directly on the mattress. I requested additional pillows from the front desk and they very nicely provided but they gave me the pillow cases to put on myself. Oh well. Anyway the breakfast buffet was too expensive but ordering off the menu was fine. The internet was spotty and mostly only worked in the reception areas. I would consider staying there again if I was assured the bedding problems were corrected.

Room Tip: Make sure about the bedding and sheets before you go or bring your own from home.

I understand that Alaska is remote and the hotels in some areas are few but Celebrity could have picked a better place to stay in Seward for our land tour. Our bathroom vanity was in the bedroom of all places and it was very dirty. The sheets were poor quality as were the pillows. The best thing about staying here was the restaurant in the morning of our departure. Great food and GREAT service.

Very basic, almost primitive. The room's alarm clock didn't work and they did not have a replacement. I was told to request a wake-up call, which I did; and then called a half hour later to confirm.
I never received the wake-up call; It was logged-in but they never got around to it!
Fortunately the walls are so thin we heard every belch, snore, flush and grunt of our neighbors which did wake us up at 1 Am; 2 Am; 3 Am; 4 AM 5 Am.....

Based on the photos and reviews we expected more than a basic hotel room. When we checked in and found out that our room was in the most noisy possible location. We requested a different room and were told that all other rooms were reserved for tour people. It made us realize that we did not have much priority even though we undoubtedly paid more for our room. As expected, he heard people going up and down stairs and overhead for much of our time in the room. Otherwise, the room was ordinary,nothing like we expected from the photos. The lodge, however, was beautiful and inviting.

Room Tip: Choose the second floor of a building- away from road, stairs and people walking overhead.

Seward Windsong Lodge is a very nice looking lodge. Setting, landscape all top notch. Rooms are spacious and clean. Our only complaint is the comfort of the beds. Hard as a rock! We attempted to get out of our second nights stay to get a good night sleep but were not successful. The front desk were very sorry and provided us with two pads that we placed under our sheets which made the second night more bearable.

We don't know a lot about The Breeze Inn but it had a great location for a stay in Seward.

Room Tip: Bring a sleeping bag for extra padding!

Clean rooms with easy access. Great place to be based out of while visiting Seward. Close to Exit glacier and 10 minutes drive from Seward pier, Alaska sea life center and Safeway if you need to pick up something.
