Murphy's Alaskan Inn
Ranked #11 of 14 Hotels in Seward
Reviewed 20 November 2012

Murphy's Inn was a pleasant surprise in Seward Alaska. Our room had a beautiful view of Resurrection Bay and the the Mountains beyond. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent. They assisted us on the sites to see in Seward and the transportation to the Sea Life Center and Exit Glacier National Park. It is a short walk to the fishing docks, shops, and restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the two story section with the window facing resurrection bay.

Recently stayed at Murphy's for 3 nights prior to getting on a cruise ship. At first sight you may be discouraged: the exterior looks well-weathered. What should I expect considering Alaska weather? Inside, the room was exceptionally clean, spacious, everything worked, and the bed was comfortable. Coffee in the room. The included "breakfast" was really just a snack -- breads and yogurt, but enough to get your day started.

The motel's owners and staff were great -- friendly, informative and extremely helpful (even took one of our party to the post office).

Bottom line: great value, central location, friendly peoploe; would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the "new" section, second floor to avoid traffic noise.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We found the location very convenient for getting to the harbour for our wildlife/glacier cruise. We stayed in one of the top floor rooms with an outlook towards the harbour and distant mountains, very picturesque. The room was clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was reasonable and I learned how to use a bagel slicing device.

Murphy's was a nice place to stay, it was nicer than a lot of motel's I have stayed in and they had a decent breakfast (bagels, packaged danish, yogurt, coffee, juice). The room was clean and the sheets were fresh. I ended up with a smoking room since non-smoking wasn't available and it did not smell like smoke at all. Even though the price is high, it's cheap for Seward.

WHATS GOOD: clean, convenient location waterfront just across road, restaurants and tour departures very close. 15-20  minute walk to town

WHAT'S BAD:  if on the bottom floor of the 2 story building, bring ear plugs, folks above us sounded like they we're coming through the ceiling, when they ran water could hear it clearly in our room, and I'm not a light sleeper. Also had a big 3" spider in bathroom, room was really hot even with heater off, no staff to answer operator line at 11pm, not sure when they logout.  

WHAT'S OK:  simple continental type breakfast food juice, bagels, yogurt

Room Tip: Don't get 1st floor room in 2 story building

Clean room and bed, and fantastic views from our room on the ground floor. Staff was good and helpful with the local sightings, and they help with your booking if needed. Breakfast consisted of bread/bagel, some pastries, coffee. We had taken some instant oats with us, so that was neat for us.

Harbor is couple of blocks by walk, and we just parked our car in front of our room and walked to the harbor to catch our day-long cruise.
