Our host Sarah was awesome,the breakfast delicious and the view as we dined was fabulous!!!
A little noisy from late-night guest check-in and early morning street traffic for light sleepers.
I enjoyed the history of the building, the gift of seeing the bay from my room and the warm, friendly service as well as the privacy. The location was a great suprise. Good walk to every where in Seward I needed to go, such as Library, Museum, Sea Life Center and the Bay.
Was ok, but that's it.
A bit far out of town. Breakfast ould have more choices.
Owners are great. Very friendly and accommodating. Location was super convenient for us.
Fairly expensive but seemed in line with other area B&B's. Breakfast was OK but simple. I did see others catered to more at breakfast - our problem for not asking.
Nice location breakfast very good. Excellent sourdough pancakes.
Managers child runing around like wild man when we checked in, even went into our rooms. My room next to managers residence was noisey during the day,
Location and staff were excellent. Walking distance to the ocean, museum and Sea Life Center. The staff really have it down - always willing without hovering.
The size of the room and the entrance stairs. The stairs would have been OK if we had know ahead of time. Not good for a recent total hip or knee patient.
The young girl who worked there was the bright spot of the staff. The location is excellent.
The male owner came off as arrogant and condescending, thin walls, can hear people snoring in room next to us. Breakfast is subpar. Do not recommend. This is a hostel at B&B prices.
Loved the location, easy to find, great views of the ocean. Room was comfortable, big bathroom, interior was cozy and rustic looking (in a good way). Staff was fantastic, very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast provided.
Proprietress Sarah is very friendly and helpful, and a great cook and baker. Breakfasts were wonderful, all cooked to order.
Room was small, crowded.
This B&B is fantastic. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is excellent, the rooms and the dining area with large sunny picture windows is beautiful. The staff made us feel at home and were very helpful with local information, suggestions and tour advice.
Having to leave!
Homey Friendly Great Breakfast Easy Check In/Out
Walls are thin
We liked the cosiness and camaraderie of the guests, and the intimate feeling of the place.
Rooms were a tad small, but not a big disadvantage.
Interior design and two layers in one room is good for families with kids. A kitchen to use any time.
1. Rooms are all in the second floor and there is no elevators to carry luggages. 2. They don't clean the room while you stay. 3. Breakfast time ends at 9am. 4. No sound proof. We can hear clearly people talk in the dinning area and noises from neighbor rooms.
My 14 year old grandson enjoyed the loft, while I enjoyed the comfort in the large bed right next to the bathroom. The common room (breakfast room) was great for relaxing and meeting new folks. I especially liked Tom's use of driftwood in the furniture and decorations.
I cannot think of anything to put in this side of the review!
The staff were very nice and friendly. They took care of our every need. The breakfast room was great for wi fi and meeting other travelers. The bed and food were excellent.
Very clean, centrally located, good views, great breakfast, and good value.
Common space was just outside our door. Some guests were very loud but they observed the quiet time and stopped at 10p.
I loved everything about this place, but let me start at the beginning: I am a 20something female, who ended her Alaska adventure with a solo jaunt to Seward to see the sea life! I called the Inn the day before I arrived to ask if I could drop off my luggage off before check-in (I'd been backpacking in Denali with friends.), which they were more than happy to allow. When I got there (a very easy walk from the train station), not only could I drop off my luggage - I could check-in! Sarah greeted me like a friend and showed me around, making sure I knew where all the common areas were. Sarah and Tom helped me out and had my whale-watching tour pick me up from the Inn, so I didn't have to haul all my gear across town again. I didn't even realize the tour did this. Tom and Sarah told me about it and then they called for me! And made sure I knew that the tour would check my luggage for me too. They gave me recommendations for lunch and supper and directions to the SeaLife Center. The recommendations were superb! It was so nice that they both chatted with me a bit and just asked how the trip was going - It made me feel like I was staying with friends, which was awesome since I was traveling alone. The room was fantastic. Clean. HUGE. (It had a loft with two twin beds, plus the bed below.) Enormous bathroom. Bed was so comfy and clean (and not just because I'd been sleeping on the ground for a week beforehand)! Then for breakfast Sarah made two kinds of breads. She also made me eggs and sourdough pancakes! (She was whipping up pretty much whatever any guest asked for.) And it was all so good!! And there was coffee, juice, tea and cocoa out, so you have whatever you wished to drink. I just can't say enough about how wonderful this place was - When I get back to Seward, I'm going to have to stay here again!
There wasn't a thing I could complain about. Honestly, the only disappointing thing was that I wasn't staying longer!
Very noisy as a family of small kids were making a racket. Staff not very friendly. Old worn out bath towels. Did not meet our expectations as a B & B.
Room was very small. Not enough storage or counter space for 4 people
Unique facilities in the heart of downtown Seward. The lofts offer a great options for families, with a small all - enclosed room. The space did show its age, and the beds weren't the most comfortable. The free wifi was adequate for checking email, and that was about it. The hotel offered Netflix in the common room, but it was unwatchable due to slow connection and buffering issues. The real highlight of the stay was the warm reception from the owners, and the fresh cooked to order breakfast.
Everything! We wanted to go back there on our trip and cancel other locations, they were full. It is not a surprise to me. Everyone who works there and the owners make you feel at home and the breakfasts, WOW, Sarah makes them to order. Her son, Sammy, became our friend. Would love to go back!
made to order breakfast,staff,cozy
Nice location. Next to downtown, sea life center, library, and nice park for the kids next to water. Manager was great and friendly. Great breakfast to start day.
Great value for the money, especially during high season. Tidy, charming room. Easy check-in/out. Great location. Owner/Manager (Sara) is a fantastic host and a heck of a good cook.
Good location. Comfortable room.
Included breakfast was healthy but wasn't much.
