No AC, but did have a window fan available. Room 5's door was very hard to unlock. Very clean and comfortable small room. I had to go to the office to get a shampoo bottle as there wasn't any in our bathroom. Stayed there one night before a fishing trip, it sufficed for our purpose, doubt I would stay there long term.

Worst hotel we've stayed in.

The room was not clean. Coffee pit had old coffee and filter. Other guest left dirty laundry. Floors were dirty. Rooms were small and not as expected. Will not stay there again.

Expensive town & accommodations!

Pros: Location only.
Cons: Don't think you can change the size of the rooms.. price should be must cheaper considering the type of hotel it was and the accommodations.
Location: Located near Seward.. walking distance.
Harbor view Inn was small and our room was tiny and located under some stairs. No charm, but place did seem clean. Conveniently located for walking into town. Bed was uncomfortable.

Hotel in Seward, Alaska

Pros: Location to the boat harbor.
Cons: Replace the mattresses. They must be 20 years old. Very uncomfortable.
Location: This hotel is centrally located. The boat harbor is close by and the Sealife center is just down the street.
Hotel is clean and close to the small boat harbor. Definitely not a 5 star hotel. Everything was clean and in good working condition. The mattresses need replacing. They are very old and very uncomfortable. The rooms could use a small refrigerator. Overall it was a decent place to stay.

Hotel not close to town or beach

Pros: Very quiet neighborhood
The hotel was older but was clean. We had to take a shuttle to go anywhere-to a restaurant or to go shopping. There were several nice restaurants downtown. We had to sleep with the windows open since it was warm and there was no air conditioning. It was very quaint

The rooms are small but we were out except to sleep. The hotels nearby have nicer rooms for a few dollars more. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was no chain on the door just a dead bolt with a key entry. When my head hit the pillow I was asleep, therefore I assume that the bed was comfortable. Harborview has no view of the harbor.
