The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved our stay. The property is well maintained and has a very interesting décor. The adjoining restaurant and lounge was superb. We'll be back to stay again. The value was great and was the location in Seward.

Moved rooms twice because of dirty rooms. Dog hair on the bed, human hair in the sheets, floors needed a good vacuum. Finally got my $ back and went somewhere else.

We regret to see you rated us so low after discussing your concerns with us. We apologize that the first room you were in, had dog hair on the comforter. Housekeeping assured the comforter had been laundered, and was our failure upon inspection. As for your second room, We apologized again for our failure, as were confused as to the length you were in the second room, by making coffee, used the linens, etc. We did not charge you a room change fee the first time, and didn't charge you for the second room, as a result in compromising our disinfecting and sanitization of both rooms You make it feel as though staff was difficult to work with your statement "Finally got your money back", that is misleading and can be construed in the wrong context. We willingly gave your money back without confrontation, and without additional cleaning fees for not just one room, but 2 rooms. I do ask you, to please remove this review.

Extremely personable staff. Great location. The beds were very comfortable. I would definitely stay again.

We staying in the Historic wing of Hotel Seward in a Historic European Style room. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The room was clean, quaint, and comfortable. The service is what made this hotel such an amazing stay. Everyone from the owner to the shuttle driver to the front desk was immensely helpful and extremely friendly. We throughly enjoyed our stay and, if in seward again, will not stay anywhere else but Hotel Seward.

Hi Jennifier, Thank you again for staying with us and writing your post for other visitors to review. I especially appreciate your review of the Historic European stye room, because as hard a we try, some guest book those rooms but are really looking for a different experience. I hope you had a great vacation. MarkK

Convenient and Charming Hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: The bathroom in the old wing can use an exhaust fan to make it less steamy. More electric outlets and including a frig in the room would be nice.
Location: A plus for this hotel is that it is a stone throw away from many restaurants locals go and to the Sea Life Center.
The historical pictures add a charming touch to the old wing of the hotel.
