I would give them 5 stars for location, only a few blocks from the water and all the shops. It did however look more like a motel than an inn. The room itself was pretty basic. It was the end of September while I stayed so it was quite all around. The guy at the front desk was very helpful... More

I was pleasantly surprised with how nice my room and view was on the 2nd floor of Murphy's Alaskan Inn! The room seemed to be recently updated. My small balcony was perfect for enjoying coffee in the morning while loving the view of the bay and harbor. Front office staff was friendly and helpful. Price was unbelievable for all I... More

We stayed in Seward a couple of nights, one at the Windsong and two at Murphys and we had a much more beautiful view at Murphys. Ask for the second floor of the new unit and you'll look out over the ball diamond and a bit of the camper park right on the beach. Resurrection Bay is right there with... More

We did not think too much of it. The room had an antiseptic smell that was off, like it was covering something worse. The floors squeaked badly, the walls were paper thin so you heard everything in the other rooms and the heater made a horrendous noise if you tried to turn it on. Not a place I would recommend,...

With the super high rates of hotels in summers, this was quite a bargain. The Rooms were quite clean for a motel, and the service was good, they left our room key at the reception, since we arrived late.

Stayed one night and felt ripped off at $179 for room only. It was basically a box with no kettle or spare toilet roll. We spent 16 nights in Alaska and this was the most expensive and the poorest room we had. No breakfast - nothing to justify the price.

I had a great time during our family vacation. The room was clean and service was inviting. We had a little kitchen with two burners, mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. I would recommend staying here.

Our room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We arrived after hours and the staff was nice enough to leave the key for us in a drop box. A breakfast voucher was included for a restaurant within a 5 minute walk, which was nice. The location is good, just off the main road; we had the window open... More
