June 9-11, 2009
We originally booked one of the yurts for a two week period, but after three nights, we packed it in and headed out to a private RV park at Stoney Creek. Seward Resort is very noisy, with a coal ship loading facility, Alaska Railroad marshaling yard, and the Seward Highway all in close proximity. There also wasn't any official enforcement of the posted "Quiet Hours" in the yurt area. Other than that, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the facility clean and well maintained. Room rentals at this facility might be more enjoyable since one can close the windows if it gets too noisy [although I don't know how thick walls or windows have to be to keep an 0200 locomotive horn at an acceptable decibel level for sleeping!].
