Hotel Review: Holiday Inn Express Seward

By  | 

I’d selected the Holiday Inn Express Seward, 1. Because it was one of the few chains in the area and 2. Because I got a great deal on it — $40 and 15,000 priority club points rather than $200 a night.

All rooms have balconies and I’d booked one overlooking the harbor. After checking in, I knew I wouldn’t be going to the Sealife center the next morning, I’d be spending the morning on my balcony with a cup of coffee taking in the view.

The room was basic and decent for a Holiday Inn Express, especially for the price. My only complaint was the mini-fridge they provide the room with was incredibly loud. Halfway through the night I was tempted to risk flooding the room with defrosting water just to not hear it.

They offer a pretty extensive free breakfast – biscuits, gravy, pancakes, multiple juices and a coffee dispenser, yogurt, cereals, oatmeal, pastries, etc. The dining area which is right off the lobby, looks directly out onto the harbor and boat slips, but I still opted for my own balcony.

The water pressure was good in the shower and I actually liked how the shampoo made my hair feel. It was definitely much better than the Denali Princess Lodge.

Parking was free and check out was quick and painless. It’s not a beautiful hotel, but it’s solid, and if you have priority club points, it’s one of the best values in Seward.
