Three of us cousins, all in our 60s, shared a very nice suite. We had a beautiful view across the water, 2 TVs, many amenities and very nice accommodations. We didn't use any of the hotel's offerings (bar or restaurant) but I did use the free internet off the lobby and it was nice to have. The location is within... More

Thank you for your positive review! Those suites are sweet. With the wet bar, mini refrig and table chair you can have a comfortable get together with a couple people and still have room to spare. I enjoyed your picture on the tripadvisor site. It also posted a picture of the Westmark Inn, must have been a different trip as... More

I booked a room at this hotel two weeks before my arrival, through Expedia. The room I booked (and paid for immediately) was a queen executive waterfront room. I got to the hotel at 3 p.m. (check-in time), but the room I had paid for was unavailable. I was offered two other rooms - both unacceptable (one opened onto a... More

The view (facing the water) is gorgeous. Amazingly beautiful bay surrounded by mountains. The hotel is tolerable. Nothing fancy or special. The rooms are dated and worn. It doesn't come close to the Baranoff which was full when I visited. Breakfast in the restaurant was very good. A cocktail in the bar was okay. And it was close enough to... More

First of all you have to know that when you visit Juneau, there's not going to be major chain hotels in town. I stayed here this summer and absolutely enjoyed my time. Get over the fact that you're not living in the lap of luxury and go downstairs and get a drink. All of the staff (the hotel/restaurant and bar)... More

Steve was awesome - You need a new maintenance person though , one who will get on problems as soon as they occur, not leave lights burned out for months on end. How much is a good desk clerk worth? It's important that a person take pride in where they work, steve obviously does, and it shows in his dealings... More

If you come in when the wrong (by this I mean not helpful or kind) person is on duty or you come in at night and look at your room which might appear to be not the best place to spend the night, it will all change once you experience the magic dust of Ken or the understanding eyes of... More

Don't let the outside scare you! Yes, the rooms appear dated but they were extremely large and comfortable. Alaska isn't supposed to be extremely fancy and for the kind service and price this place can't be beat.

We finished our trip with InnerSeas Discoveries here before returning home. When we arrived the room we had booked was not available; fortunately another guest offered to switch rooms. The restaurant is good family faire, and the location is just a short walk to downtown. Its a good basic hotel for family travel.

I was a bit apprehensice when I saw the outside building. But due to the location near the water and the weather in Alaska (humidity) Now I understand. My wife & I were very much satisfied when we walk in the lobby Great location to walk around town. Nice size room, Yes the room have been renovated. very much satisfied

We got in at about midnight in mid-August on a ferry from Skagway. Nicest possible reception person (this was 14 Aug 2012, well really in the wee hours of 15 Aug). Room was very nice, clean, comfortable. The only problem was it was too hot.
