Desk clerk was extremely pleasant, kind, attentive. Even the hotel maids say hello in passing. Room was clean, beds comfy, quiet, full breakfast buffet was above average and fully stocked. Only 2 washer/dryer but efficient. Had to wait to use them b/c cloths weren't emptied out. When the couple arrived to remove their cloths they told me they weren't staying...

It's a short tourist season in Alaska. Consequently, hotels there are rather pricey. But, $244 a night for a Best Western is RIDICULOUS! This hotel is in a great location--right on the harbor. Breakfast wasn't too memorable with little fruit and few GF options. Wish hotels would wise up and offer GF Chex!

couldnt be better located right on the small boats harbour. Good bar with views right over the harbour and interesting food at the restaurant (privately run). Staff were very helpful at check in (and in fact upgraded us). Easy parking. Rooms were better than some reviewers would have you believe. The breakfast however was poor. Paper plates, very basic fare...

This hotel is ideally located in the little town of Valdez. In the harbor, close to restaurants, shops, tour boats. The rooms are basic and a little dark, to warm on a sunny day (despite the fan). Our bathroom wasn't very clean (especially around the toilet) We told the front desk and the problem was solved even before we returned...

The hotel is in a great location right in downtown and on the water. The rooms are nice, clean, and affordable. Breakfast is included with your stay, they have free wi-fi and cable TV, and an exercise room. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and they have two restaurants in the building which are both fabulous! The cost...

Well it's just not that great is it? Bog standard hotel. Rooms OK if a little tired. Staff at the front desk were friendly enough. Breakfast was pretty dire although there is a nice restaurant attached for dinner. It's quite well located for the marina - so handy for boat tours, and I think the views would have been amazing...

Old, tired with a bad odor in the rooms. Felt like I was checking into a nursing home when I opened the door to the room. I don't think that there are many options in Valdez, but I would avoid this place if you can figure out an alternative. The fish hatchery nearby is a worthwhile stop with the salmon...

This is a standard hotel, functional and clean, but no bells and whistles. It's located right at the Valdez harbor. Across the parking lot there are great views of harbor vessels along with a bit of municipal art. The hotel is walking distance from the ferry terminal as well as other downtown businesses. It is an easy walk to restaurants...
