Small and cozy. Very friendly host. Slightly smaller rooms than anticipated, but very clean. The big bummer for us was the microwave being in the lobby when we were planning on home-made food for a day or 2.
And the location - was right by the port, just a 10min walk to the Kenai Visitor center and restaurants.
Would definitely recommend.

... Usually everyone is pretty understanding...we can't control the weather. Also, everyday we have five tours going out; 8, 9, 10, 11:30, and 12. The first four go into the national park and the noon stays in the bay. Ok, now today was the weather day of all weather days.

... great video of the pod of Orcas.
Fox Island is a quiet, tranquil Island. We had a salmon and roast beef lunch before given some time to walk around the Island. After an hour for lunch we continued our cruise of the bay. It was such a clear day we could see the tops of all the mountains and Bear Glacier.
The next day, our close view of Exit Glacier was quite remarkable. We also enjoyed a visit to Alaska ...
... ray were being used for 2 separate ships. Next stop was Customs and the X-ray machines.
From our cabin stay we had 4 or 5 cans of beer and 2 cans of "rita's" left over. Matt had started to pack them in a checked bag and I said not to as we didn't want to end up in the naughty room, so he put them in a carry on. We figured if we got stopped we would just play dumb and hand them over. The bag went thru the X-ray machine and came out and nobody mentioned ...
The weather gods may have been cruel to us in Juneau and Skagway, but they made up for it in Seward. Our captain told us that we had the first clear day in over a month. Not only was it clear and sunny, the ocean was like a millpond, which as mentioned earlier is very unusual.
Our tour was nothing short of fantatstic. We had multiple whale sightings, we saw numerous whales, including our closest whale encounter of the trip, sea otters, puffins ...
