Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Polar Bear AK Great Hotel, fair price
Hotel rooms in Seward in the summer are hard to find, and certainly not inexpensive! The Holiday Inn Express is in a great location at one end of the business/harbor area and is great hotel at a fair price. Rooms are large, and clean, and staff is very helpful and courteous. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Seward.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emelio Loved this hotel
We stayed 2 nights at the Seward location following a weeklong cruise to Alaska. We loved everything about this hotel. Our room came with a balcony overlooking the boat harbor (and the cruise ship we had just gotten off of). We found it a doable walk to the down town area. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Brianna at the front desk and John (?) the manager were a pleasure to deal with.
PS - I wish I was there now.

Our recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express Seward Harbor was fantastic!. The room was extremely comfortable, and the view of the harbor from the balcony was amazing. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and they did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. I will definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Can't get closer to the harbor...
This was a fantastic place to stay in Seward. We booked a day cruise and I chose this because I thought it was near the harbor. I was pleasantly surprised to find it ON the harbor. Our room literally looked out at the K dock. I had no complaints and would definitely stay again if I am in Seward. We saw lots of families, fishermen and other tourists. It was more in price than other hotels in the lower 48, but I was warned by a friend that everything was more expensive so was prepared. Compared to other places in Seward I thought the rate was good. The breakfast was plenty and included. We were in a standard room on the harbor side on 3rd floor and it was good for us. There are rooms with balconies, but had large windows which was fine for us.

We had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Seward. Clean comfortable room, great helpful staff with a great view of the harbor. Close to the fishing boats and within walking distance to great restaurants. If you are going to Seward I recommend the Holiday Inn Express as your home base.

Stopped over at this location during a recent business trip to Anchorage, AK. Hotel staff was great. Location was great with fantastic view of harbor and short walk to shops, restaurants, charter boat docks. Standard IHG Holiday Inn Express Breakfast is always good.

Right by the docks. Fun to just walk around to watch fisherman clean the fish caught that day. No need for a car. Great location and staff wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Lots of positives with our experience. Great staff and place. Loved the breakfast options including fresh pancakes. Only negatives were the price and the loud air conditioner. Decided to run it while awake but turn it off at bed time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EmeritusProf. Great experience except for one problem-Bad Handicapped design
We have stayed here before and the hotel staff are fabulous and the hotel is fine EXCEPT
My wife is handicapped and showed up on crutches. The Handicapped room is the absolutely furthest room from the Elevator. It could not have been designed to be more painful and difficult for a person on crutches if they tried . The wonderful staff did everything they could to ameliorate the situation. They even found us a wheelchair and moved the housekeeping service carts for us, and carried our bags. But the design is a horror. Fortunately she could do without the crutches after two days and we managed ok after that.
Let me say again that the staff at this HIE should run classes in being helpful "above and beyond"

John, the manager of this property, is professional, courteous, and a true gentleman. His staff are all well trained, professional and quality customer service is their primary goal.
The views and location cannot be beat.
I highly recommend this HIE property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AussieCruiser Great place to stay when connecting for a cruise
Closest hotel to the train statin and cruise liner dock. Clean spacious rooms, good amenities. We stayed on a harbour view room - recommend that as the view over the marina is beautiful, with a balcony to relax and have a drink.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maureen of Eau Claire Hotel with a Harbor View
This is an quality hotel with an exceptional location. Professional staff, beautiful view of harbor and mountains and convenient great room for relaxing and/or waiting for check in or meeting guests. The breakfast room was clean and complimentary food better than the average found at hotels. Coffee available 24/7 is a plus. Location perfect and one can walk to catch day boat cruises and if you are a walker, you can walk a good portion of the village although having a vehicle is a plus to explore the village.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Subukai Average Accommodations at 5-Star Prices
This property reminds me a lot of the accommodations on the beaches of the east coast in that there is a high demand in the summertime, so they gouge the prices in the name of demand, but don't put much of it back into the hotel.
Excellent staff - everyone was very helpful, especially when it came to checking our bags for the railroad while we were out on a boat trip.
Clean room - the bathroom was very clean; well-maintained fridge.
Pillows - they have cases that mark them "firm" and "soft" - I think it's very cute and they were comfy.
It's close to everything.
Breakfast - if the sole mission for breakfast is to consume calories, then this will fit the bill, but the man who sings about cheeseburgers isn't wrong about the menu...
More price-gouging at the vending machine - fortunately there's a gas station across the street to pay normal prices for such things.
Furniture - it's OLD.
Balcony - I would have loved to hang out there (especially since I paid extra for the room with one), but it creaked when I walk out there (I'm a fairly fit woman), so I didn't feel comfortable out there.
Overall, I would still recommend the property because there really isn't much to choose from and much to my chagrin, I imagine that the rates are comparable elsewhere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Irishrover Comfortable rooms and good service
We visited during July and the views from the breakfast room were great BUT the sun coming through the two story high windows made sitting in the room for breakfast almost impossible. Something should be done about this.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jillz Overpriced, stay away.
Originally put in room facing the highway. It was very loud and smelled like smoke. Eventually moved to a waterfront room which was quiet with beautiful views. Unfortunately, the windows were so dirty we couldn't fully enjoy the scenery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canoedude Very pleasantly surprised
Seward is a very charming town and the HIE in Seward fit the bill. The staff was pleasant, the room was clean and the breakfast was very complete.
Having never been to Seward (or Alaska for that matter) we didn't know what to expect. The hotel is located right on the ahrbor and close to everything.
Great place to stay and would love to come back.
