The building is old and dilapidated
Convenient location near "downtown" Seward
I will start by saying that I've stayed in countless "budget" lodgings across the U.S. and generally do not care about ameneties or superficial things like the decor or the age of the building or whether there's a small stain on the carpet. That said, the Taroka Inn makes the lowest-end one-star chain motel look like the Four Seasons. The building was dilapidated inside and out. The doors and windows would not properly open/close, rooms were dingy and dirty, windows cracked, and one of the rooms had a distinct cat urine odor. You expect everything to be overpriced in Alaska, but this place was more than double what you would pay for a standard budget motel in most locations and much lower quality. If you're looking for a basic, clean, no-frills option in Seward, the Breeze Inn just up the road is well worth the little extra cost.
Spacious room and living area for 4 friends. Extremely convenient location to main downtown area, short drive to boat tours.
Very tight space in the bedroom but living area was spacious. Looks a bit rundown from outside but room (and the bathroom) was very clean.
Free Wifi Clean living quarters 2 bedrooms with a kitchen very affordable for all the amenities included based on the area
looks pretty shabby from the outside
Location was good to downtown. Owner was very friendly.
Facility seemed dated for the price.
The 2-nights stay in Taroka Inn was greatly exceed my expectation. The room was very spatial, there're 2 queen beds and a couch. The WIFI was very good. We also grilled our salmons in the yard with the help of warm-hearted house owner.
Location Room size( 2 bedrooms) Built-in kitchen Fast WiFi Comfort Reasonably priced Friendly staff
It was like a cabin. The bathroom had a brand new shower that was nice. Roomy enough for family.
It had a smell and opening the windows they were filthy. Carpet needed some cleaning. Stove top and cupboards were dirty. We paid the same price for a much better room.
Good value for the money. The suites are roomy and clean but the motel is old. The remodeled bathroom in room 1 was nice. Also had a view of the mountains.
Clean sheets, comfortable bed, and good wifi.
This is a very old and run down establishment, outdated furniture and appliances, not even close to what we would expect from a motel room. It was rather creepy.
He told us where to buy fresh fish, and lent us salt, oil to cook in the hotel.
Loved having a kitchen where we were able to save money by preparing our own meals. Owner very nice and friendly. Location close to shopping.
Rooms need updating. Dead bugs in window sills. Not having basic salt and pepper in kitchen.
inexpensive, owner friendly, our room had a kitchen. it appeared to have been an apartment.
very dated, floor in bathroom was soft from shower water.
We opted to economize on housing so we could spend more on food/fun and still had an excellent location - walking distance to most of downtown. Mr. Lo was an excellent host and was very accommodating. The rooms were clean and quite comfortable.
This is an older structure and suites & rooms are oddly configured - not a real negative but some might find them odd. The one adjustment was one bathroom for a suite that sleeps 6-8, but it's manageable.
great place for 4 guys to stay after 2 days of fishing we all had our space in separate rooms for those who snore.. it was great to have a bed by myself. Jame's the owner is a funny guy.. By the way his place is for-sale if anybody out their wants to buy it.
only one bathroom access in the back bedroom area its ok with a bunch of guys we made it work. place is outdated but clean.
We liked the location. It is within walking distance of downtown Seward. It is easily accessible for parking too. The friendly owner and the option of having a kitchen for breakfast or lunch options.
Mr. James was awesome!! Looks shabby on the outside but was quite stunned by the cleanliness of the rooms. Beds were comfy!! Will be going there again.
way over priced
The "frontier" experience of the Taroka Inn was unique. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Short walk to downtown in the historic town of Seward. A memory maker.
Facility could have been a bit cleaner but overall not a bad experience.
james is a jewel! you could not ask for a nicer host or a cleaner place to stay. wonderful location, dont be put off by the outside, the rooms inside are spotless.
the outside looks a little rundown. but we didnt come to alaska to stay in five star hotels!!! experience the flavor of the area, awesome!!!
I liked the location. Its nice walking distance to what I needed. Parking on the street for the motel was good too. I paid 150 for a family room and was impressed with the size. There was a couch that pulled out into a bed and a bed right there in the living room, then a bedroom with another bed as well. Having a nice mini kitchen was good too. The bathroom was recently re-modeled, so it was pretty clean.
How the place was dirty and smelled like smoke. We stayed in the rooms attached to the lobby and when we pulled up the owner was in there smoking, and you can tell he's been smoking in his room. My kid and I have asthma, so this wasn't okay for us. Our rooms were also just dirty- as in they needed a nice, deep cleaning. The curtains were visibly moldy, the kitchen had lots of grime. It was gross, so we didn't even bother using the kitchen at all. Since the facility was so dirty, I cringed at even using the bedding that was provided because I bet they don't even wash the blankets after each person stays. Overall, I will never stay there again and would rather pay 50 bucks more to stay somewhere cleaner.
Nothing the place is a dump. Needs to be torn down. Over priced. The cost at $25.00 might be effective.
What did I like? Nothing it's a dump. Wouldn't recommend. Needs to be taken off your site. Very over priced!
The location was great. Staff was awesome. Comfortable beds and pillows. Very family friendly.
The help and tips given by the staff.
