Fort Seward Lodge offers a wide variety of family-friendly room options. If you’re looking for something affordable, it has spacious standard rooms with two double beds. But a larger family might want to book the more luxurious two-bedroom suite, which also comes with a full kitchen, double-sink bathroom, fireplace and private deck. Kids will have fun with a game of horseshoes, while parents enjoy the stunning water views. Be warned that the Lodge has an attached saloon, but most rooms are located away from it.
The Lodge is located just a few blocks from the Skagway-Haines fast ferry terminal. Haines is a small town, with most shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of your hotel. You’ll also find any number of tour guides nearby, offering access to hiking, wildlife and glacier adventures. Five minutes away is one of the most unusual attractions in Haines, the Hammer Museum, the first museum in the world dedicated to hammers.

We paid $20 a night to camp, as opposed to getting a room at the lodge, and we're glad we did.
.There were Zero people at the lodge the entire time we were there which was a bit odd maybe the season hasn't started up yet.
All of the doors to the rooms were unlocked we decided to look inside and they were not worth the price that was being charged. The restaurant and bar was closed for the year and as we booked that was something we were looked forward to. There was no wifi anywhere on site, both of which were mentioned on the website. With multiple photos that did not really look like what we expirenced.
As we know haines is an old city but it seemed like a ghost town and unfortunately the lodge did to.
Beautiful views and camping we could do our own thing on the lawn for setup at the lodge but just know it's not all you see online as of this current time of year anyways.
I booked in for 2 different dates in April to come across to do some backcountry snowboarding. The week before I was due to fly out and 2 weeks after I'd made my booking, I was emailed without much explanation to say that the lodge was fully booked and that they would offer me a refund. The email didn't make much sense and only after much probing did it transpire that the lodge had actually over booked and were instead choosing to honour a group booking that had turned out to include more people than they had expected. This left me without anywhere to stay at the last minute and so consequently I have ended up spending much more than expected due to limited availability as little notice was given. On top of this the lodge has been slow to offer me a full refund and the website malfunctioned when I first booked charging me twice. The lodge have been difficult to get in contact with throughout and slow to respond to email. All in all, a very shambolic and disappointing experience making my much anticipated holiday needlessly stressful and I would strongly advise avoiding this place if at all possible. I would choose to spend a little extra and stay somewhere else so as not to be left with no where to stay at the last minute.
