The property is dated. There are some renovations in progress but for the most part it feels quite old. One of the biggest issues I had was how hot it was. My room must have been 80° when I got it. I turned the heat off and kept both Windows wide open all night and it probably never got below... More

It's Juneau. You won't find good restaurants or luxury hotels. I used to stay in the Baranoff frequently. I have now stayed in three different rooms at the Prospector. The rooms are equal to or better than what you get at the Baranof, and there is a microwave and refrigerator, and decent sized closets. Some rooms have huge closets. The... More

Nothing especially fancy, but everything you need. Rooms are large and clean, staff is helpful, location is central to everything, and the bar is fun. If you're looking to get pampered, there might be other options in Juneau, but nothing better at this pricepoint.

Fabulous staff! Friendly helpful efficient! Room was spacious and clean with microwave and fridge. Location was near downtown with adequate parking for rental car. Perfect after cruise location! 15 minute drive to airport and Mendenhall Glacier.

Sometimes wish Trip Advisor had .5 scores as this would be more of a 3.5 if not for the really friendly, wil do what they can for you staff, the proximity to the waterfront and downtown and the relative price as Juneau is not cheap during the summer months. That said, rooms are dated (albeit really clean), thee are no... More

Stayed at this hotel for eight nights during a vacation in Juneau, AK. Location was excellent; within walking distance of many of Juneau's attractions. My room (third floor, west facing) gave me a view of the channel. Clean and quiet and include microwave and fridge. Given Juneau's prices, I felt their rates were competitive. Front desk staff was friendly and... More

This hotel was pretty small and located a good ten minute walk from the heart of downtown Juneau, but it was a great place for what we needed. We arrived very early and although they couldn't let us in until the designated check-in time, they happily held our suitcases and let us get things from them multiple times throughout the... More

Terrible. I don't even know where to start. This place is so out dated and dingy, it just needs a total overhaul. It was a lovely 70 degree day in Juneau, so the rooms were at least 80 degrees, with no fan of any kind. But don't go opening the windows, because there is some kind of dump truck loading... More

I picked this hotel because it was the only place I could find in Juneau that could sleep 5. I was in a suite with 2 queen beds in room 315. The room was large and clean. Other members of my family stayed in suites 309 and 409 that had 1 king. Both of the rooms were more currently updated... More
