I loved the old bldg.
The stairs were very steep and having a bad knee made it hard to climb up and down.
Great location in the downtown area, Sea Bean cafe underneath was lovely.
location, price and cleanliness are all excellent
the quality of the bed was less than wonderful, and this was an issue for my back
Very cool place to stay. Would highly recommend.
Wifi and poor ceiling fan.
Great downtown location.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In the main centre. Meet expectations based on previous reviews and the Owner's write up. Spacious rooms.
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
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.
Had to call the owner to get the wi-fi password. There was a short period when there was no hot water.
Comfortable rooms felt like home
The rooms were homey. Two of the girls wanted to live there. Quiet. Kitchen availability
One of our two rooms was too hot. We managed to get one room cooled down, but the other was too uncomfortably hot
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 :)
Space and comfort was great. Full kitchen.
No one on-site, and minor maintenance items were evident. Wi-Fi is weak.
The location was central. room was comfortable and clean. staff were friendly and helpful. good value for money.
Entry stairs are difficult with suitcase
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.
I didn't like not having the proper access code upon arrival.
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 :-)
Loved the decor and atmosphere
quaintness, location, size of guest quarters
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)
Very quaint, cozy place for it quick visit to Seward. We would stay there again.
Bed in the studio was a bit uncomfortable by my preferences, bu husband said he thought it was fine. Would like in room coffee
Perfect, convenient, location
Good amenities and service.
The bed was incredibly comfortable! And the apartment had great character. The furnishings were comfortable and high quality as well as aesthetically pleasing.
Our unit was said to sleep 5 adults however I'm not sure where they were planning for the 5th adult to sleep. It was my husband, his grandfather, and myself in the unit and that was plenty cramped. The grandfather slept on the sofa bed in the living room, but had to barge through the bedroom if he needed to use the restroom in the evening. That was a little obnoxious, but aside from that everything was great.
Not enough sleeping space, extremely cramped spaces for 5 adults, substandard bathroom conditions, not at all what it is made out as advertised.
Sauerdough Lodging's studio was bright, airy, and very charming. It's in a very old building, and much of the original character remains. It was very comfortable to stay in, and the location is perfect - right in the original Seward downtown. The small kitchen, clean bathroom, and comfy sleeping arrangements (complete with flat screen TV) made it the perfect place to stay in Seward.
The bed had some construction issues (although it was new and clean). Also, the claw foot bathtub (which is wonderful) had some issues - the shower curtains didn't go all the way around, so water got all over the floor, and the water temperature suddenly would get ice cold or scalding hot without warning. But otherwise, the place is great!
Very responsive to request for extra bed
No coffee maker No hair dryer No extra blanket available
