Stayed here during midsummer 2016 with my cousin. It's a simple Motel, conveniently located by the Seward highway, only a walk (or quick drive) away from Seward harbour. Todd Perez (General Manager) was very friendly and helpful, but take note that the front-desk is only staffed sporadically. The room was clean, nicely sized with 2 queen-sized beds and parking was...

The owner/manager was friendly, exceptionally helpful and delivered excellent customer service. The room is good value for the money in that area. The Marina is located near the harbor and restaurants. Room contained a convenient kitchenette. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60873-d73754-r344849763-Marina_Motel-Seward_Alaska.html#

I was fishing in Seward for a couple of days, and needed a cheap place to sleep - well, this was definitely it. I booked a room for 3 nights for less than $60 a night, and I could walk to the harbor. Room was ok - small, but to be expected. The bathroom was VERY small. Good thing it...

Stayed one night at the Marina Inn. Best value for the dollar. Check in was flawless, person working the desk was very efficient and pleasant. This is a very basic place to stay. Rooms were clean, bed was very comfortable, microwave, coffee, refrig in the room, shower was hot, and the wifi worked. What more do you need? Few folks...

Stayed here with my family and chose entirely based on the price. Surfaces, sheets and towels were clean (just don't look at the walls in the bathroom). Room was small, but close to everything and included a fridge, microwave and coffee pot. We looked under the beds in the morning to make sure we hadn't missed anything and found someone...

We enjoyed our stay at the Marina Motel. We liked the free parking and that it was within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The room was good and had a fridge which was convenient! Our room was missing a screen for the window though so definitely check before settling in.
