Murphy's Alaskan Inn
Ranked #11 of 14 Hotels in Seward
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Nice clean local hotel. We had the second floor ocean view room. Clean quite and a more affordable voice to some of the other options. Close to the harbor and beach. Simple place to stay in Seward- no complaints.

Room Tip: second floor rooms have a better view- there is a fridge and microwave also in these rooms.

Looking for a simple place to lay my head and have a view. This place is clean and had a frig and micro wave in my room with a view and a coffee maker. Pre season rate was 99 because they were not doing breakfast yet. Midway between port and older town. Park then water and mountains across the street. Super easy going friendly staff. I agree...hate to tell you because you will go there!!
Oh yes, free wi fi

Room Tip: Get a key and go look

By writing this review, I know that I'll never be able to stay there again because it will be too popular. But they deserve the excellent review that I am about to give. I had wanted to stay at a different hotel. It was on the water. But, even though I was booking well in advance of the trip, just about everything had already been taken. Truthfully, I made a reservation at Murphy's Alaskan Inn as a last resort. I had no idea that I was getting a premier choice. The room was excellent, close to the 'real' downtown Seward (easy walking distance), across the street from the waterfront park, advice given for excellent restaurants, and hotel service beyond belief. Not like the usual hotel. Personal service like you wouldn't believe. Met the owner, what a great guy. Front desk service was outstanding.

Really liked this place and would go back in a heartbeat, preferentially - as a first choice. Ah well, the secret is out. I'd been on my anniversary vacation and this was definitely one of the highlights. They certainly deserve this review. I just hope that I can still get a reservation for my next anniversary. Like the song - Nobody Does It Better!

I was not impressed when we drove up to the motel but once in the room it couldn't have been cleaner and our view of the mts. and water was awesome! It was a true Alaskan experience! One I would repeat!

We stayed one night downstairs in the two story unit and it was horrible because we could hear every step, toilet flush, etc. the construction was cheaply and poorly done...no insulation between the floors. We were awake till the upstairs finally retired after midnite. We were moved to the upstairs for the next nite snd it was quieter. I suggest you ask for the upstairs unit or wear earplugs. Very basic and overpriced Walking distance to the wharf and restaurants

Stayed four nights here. Made reservations six months in advance so had fingers crossed. Was given room right next to office. Queen room with microwave, frig, etc. Room is quite small and cramped but clean and everything worked. Lots of foot traffic by room because of closeness to office. Bed was comforable also upgraded sheets and linens. We could see the harbor out of the window and was close enough to the harbor area to walk.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms near office is possible.
