    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Location

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Beautiful room and view from the window. Good breakfast.

    There was anyone when I arrived there, I needed to call them (by a telephone located there). Quite small room.

    Host was helpful and friendly. Location was good, right in town near the Aquarium. Breakfast has a good choice- they cooked us eggs and pancakes.

    The room was dark and musty. The bed was uncomfortable.

    Unique lodging that was as cozy as a nest! Loved the workmanship and.artistic details of our room. Sarah and Andrea were as welcoming as a good relative; cooked breakfast to order with homemade scones and bread that made us want to linger even though the beautiful day was beckoning.

    Loved it all - I'm a small is beautiful kind of gal, so for others the shipshape size of room and bathroom might be a concern. For our family of 4 (with twin 17 year old big guys) it worked fine and was a most memorable stay
