The hotel is cozy and very clean. I had a great view overlooking the bay. The staff and common areas are what make the hotel shine. Everyone really made us feel at home and welcome. I hope to visit again.

Beds and pillows are super cozy. The rooms with a view are worth it. Excellent staff, great stay, worth the price! Prefect location for bars, restaurants, tours. Quiet at night, near the nightlife but cannot hear a sound. Check out the historic photos and information on the lobby and in the halls.

Stayed in a cute little historic room with bath on second floor. Updated and very comfortable. No elevator and stairs are steep so plan accordingly. Best price in town, very helpful and friendly staff. Good location in town, across fro SeaLife Center and walking path around town.

We had the big corner room with the excellent view, a fireplace, plush antique looking chairs, and art deco lamp shades. The room was comfortable and quiet, and the staff was all friendly and helpful. We met the owners as we left, very nice people. Highly recommend!

We had a terrific meal one evening and met lots of interesting people in the restaurant. Food and service are top rate, there is a lot of original art and period photography all over the restaurant. The staff will let you walk around and take pictures, and it was their great attitudes that brought us back for dinner.

Stay in this hotel for an authentic Alaskan experience with perks. This is a nicely restored historic hotel in the best location in Seward. The extended family that operates the hotel are an Alaskan treasure on to themselves. Great service, no request too small. Rides to and from train station and drop sites for tours, no problem. Keep your sense...
