Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The location is great right on the harbor. The scenery in the area is amazing. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. We were there during record heat and could have used air conditioning which our room did not have. Otherwise it was a very nice stay.

Situated right on the harbour, it was clean and very comfy. Breakfast was ok...didn't cater for coeliacs at all, but made do.Quiet town so not a great deal of accomodation available so we were lucky to get in here. All on one and two levels, we stayed on the bottom so easy to get to rooms and had little rabbits... More

We did a loop through Alaska and passed through Valdez in mid-October. Many places and activities shut down so didn't have much to do. Best Western was clean and restaurant (separate review) was good.

Hotel is right on the harbor. Valdez is a sleep little town. Restaurant is good and locals do eat there too so it is a good option. Rooms are very clean and relatively modern. Wifi was acceptable. Simple buffet breakfast was included.

Call the hotel directly for pricing especially if you are an Alaska resident. Hotel is right on the harbor next to Stan Stephens cruises. Valdez is not big but there are a few places to choose from and this one seems the most modern and clean. Attached restaurant is good and service is friendly. Rooms are very clean and modern....

Spent 2 nights at the Best Western. Maid did not clean the room for the first night. When I stay at a hotel especially for more than 1 night, I expect to come back to a clean room with a clean bathroom. Coming back to an unclean room with no fresh towels and trash not emptied was very annoying. The... More
