The rooms are clean and comfortable in this aging hotel property. The front desk staff were professional and proficient. Housekeeping did their job. The hotel is close to a grocery store and a number of restaurants. Overall the stay at the Prospector was quiet and uneventful.

Nice little hotel with some beautiful views. It's close to the downtown area which was really convenient. Staff was very helpful and had great suggestions on what to do in town. Great place to stay if you're looking to explore what Juneau has to offer.

I had booked a room at this hotel in February. I checked in, went to my room and sat down at the desk, just to relax a bit. Looking around, I could see a few stains on the carpet, which was no big deal. The big deal turned out to be the small black bugs that were crawling all over... More

This hotel is really not bad. It could use some renovations but everyone is super nice. The rooms are clean. Outdated, but clean. The restaurant is OK. There's always coffee in the lobby. Housekeeping people are very friendly and accommodating. Beds are fairly comfortable. My only complaint is that my showerhead was literally the worst showerhead I have ever had... More

I had the great fortune of traveling in Alaska for work and since it was Summer and days were long, we worked ALOT. All I wanted was a clean room, a decent bed to rest for a bit and a bit of coffee in the morning. As my colleagues and I checked in, the manager announced that one of the... More

My son's fiancé accompanied me on a business trip to Juneau in August. When we got to the hotel, the desk clerk told us that the comforters weren't on the bed, they were folded up in the closet because after the first night, the last guests requested that they be removed. Our thought - do they wash them!? Then he... More

So, this is a very average motel. Nothing fancy. No special amenities. Nothing special. It serves its purpose which is to have a place to keep your stuff and sleep at night. The good: It's close to downtown. Just a 5 min. walk to Main Street which is the edge of the downtown area. The price was reasonable, although it... More

We stayed in one of the Waterwing Suites. The room was huge, clean, and comfortable with a great view of the harbor. We liked having a dining space in the room so we didn't have to go out to eat every meal. We ordered room service once, and the food arrived quickly. It wasn't gourmet but a good meal and... More

Stayed one night Sept 5, 2014. This hotel is in a great location, the staff is friendly and accodomating, but the hotel is in need of an upgrade. The room was large and clean but very run down. It's too bad, because this could be great rather than average. A few things such as paint, new carpet and fixing the... More
