Wifi was basically useless in Studio 4. Everything else was pretty much as advertised.

It's an old building, the king size bed was also very old and made noises when you turn. The pull out couch wasn't comfortable either. The shower is hard to use. It is not attached to the wall and is kind of shaky.
We stayed at the one bedroom suite for one night after our cruise. The hotel is easy to walk to from the cruise dock, about 20 min walk. There is a very nice coffee shop on the first floor with a good selection of sandwiches, sweets and gluten free items. It is only open until 6 P.M. but there are a some other restaurants around. We didn't see any staff members. They emailed the door code to us and we just opened the door and got in. The one bedroom suite is big, we had 4 people in our party. The bathroom with the shower is very clean and looks nice. It was quiet at night. Overall it is a very convenient place to stay at Seward if you have a family of 3-4. Much cheaper than two rooms in a regular hotel.

First I did not receive any access code to front door and room, so went cafe at 1F asking help. Walked up on stairs to 2F, the smell was horrible. Room without any safety lock, anyone has room access code can open door, felt unsecured for entire night. We were out for dinner but someone locked front door from inside, hence you couldn't get in even you had access code. Tried to reach out B&B owner but all went to voicemail. That's terrible experience to stay this place.

The stairs were very steep and having a bad knee made it hard to climb up and down.
I loved the old bldg.

Not so crazy about the comforter on the bed...I felt like Minnie Mouse, but no big deal.
The location on the main drag was great. Appreciated the coupons for the cafe. Instructions were easy to understand and everything worked. We like to stay in funky places and this was perfect.

Great location in the downtown area, Sea Bean cafe underneath was lovely.

the quality of the bed was less than wonderful, and this was an issue for my back
location, price and cleanliness are all excellent

Wifi and poor ceiling fan.
Very cool place to stay. Would highly recommend.

We had two small children, the room was very small, the floors were very squeaky. The bathtub was very old and had someone else hair it it. It is self check in and out, no staff. The wi fi was extremely SLOW.
Great downtown location.

TV reception was too bad to watch. Hallway smelled musty. Steep stairs to second floor, & carpet on stairs needed cleaning. Could hear through walls. Needed directions on how to lock door on electronic keypad when going out. Claw foot bathtub very cute but a little hard to climb in & out for showers. We had apt. nbr 4. View was of a parking lot & large trucks in back of building.
Very large apartment with full separate kitchen. Room very clean. Could park right outside of door to building. Lots of restaurants, shops, bars on same block. Received two $5 coupons for coffee shop downstairs. Received codes for outside door & apartment door before arrival so could just go straight to room without checking in with anyone. Could open window for fresh air.

We liked the inviting warmth on arriving here; but once inside apt 4, we found the apt to need updating. The tub and kitchen sink are old and possibly original but need resurfacing. The clawfoot tub shower curtain allowed water to leak out the front of the tub. Our mattress was on a platform bed with thin slats, that fell to the ground in the middle of the night. We spent the last night trying to put the bed back together, and it was late after midnight. Another review from Aug. 19, 2013, (tripadvisor) mentioned this exact same problem, so obviously it wasn't repaired (try some 1x4's?) a year later! We didn't see what good us calling this late at night would do, with us just putting it back together ourselves. Our teen daughter was in the same room with us on a couch-bed and it woke her up when the bed fell apart. We saw the owner only once the first night because we had to call to let us in, as someone had bolted the deadbolt where we were to enter using a code keypad. We had cigarette smoke smelling up the place, as the seasonal employees stand outside below apt 4 window in the parking lot behind, and smoke. Also had someone sitting on the front door step smoking almost every time we tried to enter. Definitely overpriced for the lack of quality in the room we got, even if it was Alaska's high season for tourism. For the price we paid, the furniture we slept on would be of higher quality I would think or at least be repaired using a more reliable method than the original slats that came with the bed, if this has happened before.
We liked the old downtown charm and quaintness of the building. We liked being close to shopping, cafes, restaurants. The floors creaked which was part of the old charm of the building, but some may not like it. The stairs that led up to the rooms from the street entrance were steep, but again part of the old charm of the building- they didn't have elevators in such buildings back in the day. If you want a home-like experience where nothing is perfect like a 4-5 star hotel, then this place is for you. The staff at the cafe next door were very nice.

Double pin code, one for the entrance and one for the room. Memory loss or poor eyesight natural or intoxicated can leave you on the street. Nil refreshments provided (tea, coffee). Shower over the bath a bit too basic
In the main centre. Meet expectations based on previous reviews and the Owner's write up. Spacious rooms.
July 20, 2014
Had to call the owner to get the wi-fi password. There was a short period when there was no hot water.
The bedding was very comfortable and the sheets smelled especially clean and fresh. Location was good - many attractions, bars, and restaurants were within walking distance.

Comfortable rooms felt like home
July 5, 2014
One of our two rooms was too hot. We managed to get one room cooled down, but the other was too uncomfortably hot
The rooms were homey. Two of the girls wanted to live there. Quiet. Kitchen availability
July 4, 2014
Great place to stay. Large, clean apartments right in the heart of town. Quirky, fun place to stay with a great history! Owners are very nice and readily available. The Sea Bean downstairs has good food and you will get some coupons at check in :)
June 25, 2014
No one on-site, and minor maintenance items were evident. Wi-Fi is weak.
Space and comfort was great. Full kitchen.
June 21, 2014
Entry stairs are difficult with suitcase
The location was central. room was comfortable and clean. staff were friendly and helpful. good value for money.
June 19, 2014
I didn't like not having the proper access code upon arrival.
I liked the location, the cleanliness of the unit, and the convenience of a loft style unit versus staying in a hotel. Having a small kitchen with amenities was perfect.

Our favorite stay on this trip ... homey, roomy, cozy and comfortable. Unlike a motel room where you feel cooped up and just want to go outside, this place made us want to hang out inside with a cup of hot chocolate watching snow fall outside (which it didn't ... we had nice weather :-)
June 18, 2014
Loved the decor and atmosphere
June 15, 2014
no clock, couldn't adjust heat, no staff contact, temperamental door lock on street level, check-out time too early, dirty bathroom (check behind the door)
quaintness, location, size of guest quarters
