This establishment overlooks the wild and scenic Ressurection Bay- for the most part. We were the unfortunate ones in our group that were assigned to Unit H in our group. This particular unit is the only one that overlooks the parking lot and is on the ground level for a more intimate view of the cars. There is only one window and it faces the lot so if you like natural light AND privacy you are out of luck. Fortunately, it is a beautiful part of the world so you are presumably out exploring Seward or all the outdoor activities that are available here and not styling in your room too often. The room itself is quaintly furnished and a bit bare bones. The large room has a full and a twin bed, a small lavatory, a closet with no door, and an adjoining bathroom with a shower and toilet. We were awakened by what was presumably a mouse one night trying to get into our snack bars. The owner agreed to put some contraptions under our beds and no more recurrences happened. Our room was serviced almost every day, it appears that if you are in your room and servicing is occurring, they will skip your room.
Most of the other rooms appear to have good views of the bay. Also note that our visit is in August and it has rained every day of our week long stay. Not to say that we didn't participate in a lot of enjoyable outdoor activities but just as warning because a few of our group slipped on the slippery decking which connects the units and injured themselves.
The first night we were awakened by fireworks very nearby, the second night by the mouse, the last by cars coming and going in the lot so it wasn't exactly peaceful in our unit. Others in our group who had rooms along the water had no problems. I'd stay here again but only if I got a waterfront room.
