              Little better than Motel 6. Too expensive and for what the charged no free wi-fi. I will stay at the Holiday Inn express instead.

              Good location regarding vicinity to the airport

              The service at the bar/lounge was quite poor. We waited about 20 minutes until a waitress realized that these two guests were not helped. A further 10 minutes passed until she came back,just to tell us that one of the cocktail ordered was not available. Reorder, plus another 10 minutes until the drinks arrived. I would consider 40 minutes for 2 drinks in a bar/lounge a bit too long to wait for.

            • Older travelers

              Availability of airport & in town shuttle; the staff were unfailingly polite & helpful

              Prices at the restaurant were way high for local pricing levels

            • Older travelers

              Convenient to airport for overnight stay from Seward before early morning departure. Madison at the front desk, your bellmen & van service were absolutely excellent and the freezer outside for our 2 boxes of fish was a fantastic perk. Thank you kindly, Todd Walker P.S. We have stayed with you many many times over the 10 years we lived in Seward 1994- 2004 when you so graciously accepted our family yellow labs....this separated you from all the rest! I love the taxidermy...the goat mount especially is spectacular.

              Room 4016 window crank is broken. I had to remove the screen to get it closed. The bar is off the track. I made it work, but it was a trick to get it done. The restaurant was under staffed and our server bless her heart, had way too many people to serve. We ordered two appetizers to go to take back up to the room and had a beer while we waited 30-45 minutes. The wings and the steamer clams were absolutely excellent and the beer refreshingly cold.

              proximity to airport

              room was dirty and mosquito filled

            • Family with children
              5.4

              The convenience of the location

              The dirty hotel room (exchanged rapidly by the front desk), the air conditioner that didn't work, the lack of coffee in the lobby, the extra cost for internet and the lack of a downtown shuttle in the morning.

            • Family with children
              4.6

              Near the airport that is good only who want to connect flight in the next day or pick up car rental at the airport area.

              Thebhorel is very old and nothing worth fornmoney facility and quality

              I requested a supersized double (king) but ended up with two double beds which was the other option.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              The price was decent, however not exceptional.

              As soon as I left the lobby and entered the hall to the rooms it smelled old, looked rundown.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Nice Rooms, Excellent Cafe, well trained and polite staff. Shuttle to the airport was very quick and the drivers were friendly. Nice walk-in freezer for keeping frozen fish. The hotel is located next to a lake with many float planes. It wasn't that noisy though.

              Internet usage came with an additional $10 fee.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              Conceige staff is very helpful.

              This is not a new hotel like your website stated, instead very old one, even not renovated.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              friendly dining room staff; great shuttle staff; view of lake from dining room

              basic room, overpriced; no scenic view from room

            • Single
              7.0

              Atmosphere was casual, comfortable with great Alaskan wildlife lobby and view of Lake Hood and multitude of float planes coming and going. Food was very good quality and value. Beds were comfortable.

              Rooms and hallways are in need of maintenance and updating, especially carpets.

            • Couple
              6.2

              The rooms were comfortable, the restaurant served good but pricey food. I'd recommend this hotel to people who are only interested in the quality of the room for sleeping.

              The shuttle service was terrible. The desk staff were consistently absent minded. The restaurant was high priced. Our room was in the farthest corner of this rather large hotel, could have used some of the iditarod dogs to get our luggage there and back. The internet cost $10 for 24 hours, and I didn't appreciate the fire alarm falsely going off about 8 times in one night.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              no night porter. for a 3+ star hotel, i expected more.
