Marina Motel
Ranked #12 of 14 Hotels in Seward
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Todd runs a great motel in the edge of downtown Seward and right across the street from the best breakfast in Alaska. The bed is comfortable and it's quiet. Short walk to anything. No need to pay to be not he water which is noisier and more expensive (also pay fro parking). Real Alaskan stay here!

Room Tip: all rooms are fine.

It's a motel. If you'd like a comfortable bed, a hot shower, and quiet in the evening, this place will do. It was a little tricky crossing the Seward Highway on occasion. Our favorite excursion was the Seavey Alaskan Husky training facility.

Stayed here end of May, it was clean, no frills, decent people running it. No one there after hours and in the morning early at least when we were there. Nice view of the mountains, harbor area and close to most everything. Price was reasonable for what we got, most places way higher than that. Good place for budget minded especially is the weather is bad.

I have stayed in this "older" motel on several occasions this summer. It's not fancy at all. The bathrooms are small. Does have refrigerator. New towels. "Older Motel" ok. All I'm gona say is it's a good value. I'll stay there again. I fish there a lot and don't need fancy stuff there.

Staff is friendly.

Room Tip: Non smoking. All rooms face the highway.

We stayed at the Marina Motel a week or two after tourist season so the place was empty except for a few customers. It is an older motel that reminds you of those that use to dot the roads in the 70's. The price was reasonable for Alaska and the staff are friendly. We liked the room, it was basic, clean and met our needs. There was a musty smell that we noticed as soon as we entered the room but it did not bother us after a few minutes. It was more of an anoyance than anything else. The location is near town so we walked everywhere we wanted to go. It is also close to the marine tours.

If you plan on spending most of your time outdoors then the Marina Motel will meet all of your needs.

the room is small but with $80 per day, we do not expect more. Very close to our cruise and also have shuttle to there every 5 minutes. Overall, great experience and wonderful front desk. Best place to stay in seward if you are traveling in a tight budget.

We paid $80 per night. It was good. No complaints. Clean and comfortable. Location is great. Right next to very good breakfast joint - Smoke Shack and downtown. We enjoyed our stay in Seward. The lady at the check in counter was very helpful. She gave us information about everything that we can do in Seward.
