We stayed here for 2 nights in August. The Hotel is located across the street from the Alaska Sea Life Center and very close to restaurants and bars. No car needed to eat and drink. The room was clean and in good condition. They offer laundry facilities which were convenient because we were traveling light. The continental breakfast was on...

Goofed on my reservation and arrived two days early. Savannah and Michelle arranged for us to have rooms and honored my reservation price. They did so cheerfully and accurately. The location is right across the street from the beach where you can sit and watch whales and sea lions play. The downtown area with shops and dinning options were in...

We had booking issues, but putting that to one side, I was not as impressed as I might have been. The receptionist was great and really helpful...but breakfast was a typical 'help yourself' which is almost identical to the one we had in another hotel of a different chain. The room was adequate, small and nothing special, OK for 2...

Hotel is in downtown Seward close to the bay, local restaurants and the Sea Life Centre. The rooms were clean and adequate for the short stay although I did not have a sea view.. Staff were polite and helpful. Ideally placed.

We stayed in the Edgware hotel during a recent tour of Alaska. Seward is a quaint place worth a visit. Hotel good , breakfast facilities very poor , we didn't have a place to sit to eat which was disappointing , due to coach schedules the whole hotel seemed to need to eat at the same time which just wasn't...

Very good breakfast with plenty of selections. Staff gave great suggestions for dining nearby. Within easy walking distance of SeaLife Museum and just across the street from the shores of Resurrection Bay.

We stayed at the BW+ Edgewater Hotel for 3 nights, having booking a room with a bay view and balcony. The hotel is ‘downtown’ and there are restaurants nearby and aquarium is also close. The ferry terminal, however, is in a separate part of the town (where there are other restaurants) and is about 1.5 miles away. The room allocated...

This is a nice budget to mid range hotel near the waterfront. It is located on the south end of town, directly across from the Alaska Sealife Center. In the heart of historic downtown and beach. However, it is about a mile south of the small boat harbor (which has some nice seafood restaurants). Only complaint is the sink (which...

My wife & I stayed here recently during the last leg of our Alaska trip. We picked this hotel based on the high reviews on TripAdvisor and the price which still wasn't cheap but comparatively for Alaska, it was decent bang for the buck. The staff was very courteous, helpful and friendly. The hotel itself was clean and in good...

I routinely stay at Best Western and I am pretty loyal to the chain. While this was not the best Best Western I have ever stayed in, it worked for the 2 nights we were there. I had a waterfront room with a small balcony on the second floor. It was quiet. The breakfast was good. My only problem was...
