The closeness to the ocean, We were very lucky to see several humpback whales. The staff is excellent. We had a problem with Travelocity not sending our reservation to the hotel, but the staff went out of their way to get us a room with a view and tool care of the bill with travelocity.

Pros: Immaculate rooms. Great breakfast
Cons: Larger rooms.
Location: Perfect location across the street from the water. Near to shops, restaurants, churches, etc.
Perfect place to stay. Great breakfast. Immaculate rooms. Friendly staff. Rooms were a bit small, like what I would expect in Europe, but everything else, especially the location, were excellent.

Beautiful Seward!

Pros: Location and staff and hotel interior
Cons: The sheets for the mattress did not cover well or stay on. The high profile mattresses used, comfortable ones, had sheets that were NOT staying on.
Location: Awesome! Town was close with great restaurant choices, and stores charming with good variety. Alaskan Wildland Adventures Rafting EXCELLENT!
The location of the hotel made it so easy to shop and locate restaurants. We also found the shopping purchases were far cheaper than the businesses near the ship harbor! The staff at the hotel was super friendly, offered suggestions and their own experiences, and sincerely cared for us. The morning breakfast was a treat and well done! Good variety and met personal tastes. We even had yogurt every day! Another plus is the paved walk along the bay all the way to the harbor! That was a plus! The price is high to stay for a night ($269), but that's how it is in Alaska, a short tourist season. I would return to the Best Western Edgewater again. One suggestion, though, is for the bedsheets. We had a very comfy mattress, but the sheets did NOT fit a high profile mattress. The sheets did not cover or stay on and continued to creep. The hotel MUST use the 12-18" sheets to cover the mattress. The sheets we had were designed for older mattresses. That's our only complaint, but a valid one.

Edgewater Seward July 2016

Pros: close to water
Cons: took park shuttle bus to Seward and they dropped us off at small boat harbor. Driver did not seem to know where the Edgewater was, or did not care.
Location: It is about 1/2 mile from small boat harbor where most activity takes place.
Nice hotel in Seward , helpful people, Went fishing @ 5:30 am and staff had breakfast ready

Good location, quiet, nice property

Location: Hiking, walking, restaurants, boat tours, charter fishing, shopping
Staff was very pleasant, hotel away from dock/pier area of Seward, but within walking distance, so location was very nice for us, and quiet. Rooms are on the smaller side, but that's not what was most important to us.
