Finding a pet-friendly hotel can be difficult, especially if you are looking for a nicer room than usual. We stated in the newer part of the hotel, so we don't know what the historic side is like. All the pet rooms are on the first floor, so not much of a view. However the room was very nice, clean and...

We went to Seward to go dogsledding with the Seavey team during the Iditarod weekend. The hotel is a pretty decent size and the rooms were nice and clean. The lobby is full of taxidermy animals and other clutter but it's all very clean and well maintained. We had dinner in the restaurant inside the hotel and it was made...

Stayed here with a friend on a road trip through the Kenai peninsula. We stayed in the old part of the hotel, where the walls were paper thin, the phone was from 1982 and we could hear our neighbor snoring all night. For $99 it was the cheapest in the town, but I wouldn't recommend for anyone who plans on...

I'm not going to beat around the bush, this place is a little eccentric, but overall we really enjoyed our stay here. Pros: Very comfortable bed, large rooms, huge bathrooms, microwave, coffee maker, interesting and eclectic lobby. Cons: The decor of the rooms is a bit dated and old school with fake flowers, lots of rococo looking pillows, we had...

We were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Seward. The rooms are large, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel is filled with lots of historical information and decorated to the gills making for a warm festive environment. The staff in the hotel lounge/restaurant were very attentive and the breakfast was delicious. The winter rates are great for the service.

While I had eaten in its Ms. Gene’s restaurant during a day-trip from Homer some years ago, this was a first over-night stay. Knowing its attached restaurant was then and still is now excellent, I was attracted by the “Victorian” ambiance, its variety of rooms, the taxidermy studio, its uniqueness and the helpful staff who addressed my questions from thousands...

Dear Bertram28, I sincerely appreciate your review. Hopefully it will help others to understand that the hotel is diversified in room styles and has 2 separate wings. Each wing offering room styles with varying amenities at different price levels to meet their needs. Yet, they share the common areas of the lobby , decor , Ms Gene's Place restaurant and...

We went to Seward on a whim and the last room that was available in the whole town was at the quaint hotel called, Hotel Seward. It is a little bit older and the decor looks like your grandma's house but it was nice and clean. We couldn't be too picky since that was our only choice but it was...

Check was super easy, it was quiet and clean. We stayed for what night with three kids. The kids loved it, the beds were super comfy. And the price was much better than some of the big box neighbors. And of course the kids love the lobby with the taxidermy animals they can pet. We loved not having to drive...
