Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LynnHa Great Hotel
The room was very large, clean, and attractive. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was located very near most of the sights in Seward that we wanted to see.

The HIE was a pleasant surprise in that it is located right on the harbor and next to several restaurants. I would recommend it anytime. The only issue is the same one for all hotels in Alaska. They charge twice what the room would be elsewhere. As one of the hotel staff said, we charge whatever people are willing to pay.

I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express to anyone planning on visiting Seward, AK.My wife an I chose it to spend our wedding anniversary during our Alaska trip. We booked a harbor view room and requested a balcony if available. We got the balcony and everything was wonderful. It's a great property with an amazing view. I plan to stay here the next time we visit Seward AK

The hotel was nice but the hallway was stuffy and the blinds on the door didnt keep it dark. other than that it was all good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DavidinAustin Enjoyed Property
The property is everything we needed. Location is great. Staff is GREAT. Breakfast is very good - it has several hot choices (eggs, bacon/sausage, pancakes) in addition to traditional cold choices.
Hot tub was crystal clear and hot.
The only "sort of" negative is the window blinds on the door leading to the balcony are a light cream color. So during 18-20 hours of daylight, the room does not get totally dark. This is partially minimized by hanging a towel over the door and totally resolved by wearing a sleep mask that most travelers bring for the airplane. But it would be nice if the property would change out the blinds to make the room darker. My hotel in Anchorage used roll up blinds and it totally blacked out the room.

hotel room is clean and comfortable. Wifi is fast, free breakfast always nice. Wish there are more than 1 elevator to we don't have to wait long time. Also wish there are blinds in breakfast area, since morning sunlight are too bright.

My room on the second floor was over 80 degrees and the only way to lower the temperature was to open the window to the outside 60 degree temperature

I have mobility issues; can't stand or walk much. Traveled with my sister who has major issues with being able to get in and out of motor vehicles. The front desk staff went the extra mile to find us acceptable taxis when we needed to get around Seward. The town is set up so that everything is within walking distance to those physically able. The hotel personnel were exceptionally helpful with luggage transport and helping us get around the hotel and the town. They were so attentive and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay and got to the cruise ship on time.
