This hotel was above expectations. Picked up at dockside by courtesy car, assistant at harbour ticket office works at the Juneau Hotel so expert assistance given. Reception at hotel was very friendly. Room consisted of full kitchen, sitting room with TV, washing machine and dryer, 2 queen beds and excellent WIFI reception. Only problem no wine glasses! Loved the shower... More

I am a seasoned traveler who has stayed in all levels of hotels, from the high ends in NYC and Vegas to the budgets. I stayed in the Alaskan on my second trip to Juneau, just before they were featured on Hotel Impossible. Yes, the place desperately needs some TLC, but I will stay here again. I live in a... More

Hotel impossible renovated recently. The front desk staff was polite & tried to be helpful but could not help with the loud neighbor & the lack of internet connection. The bed was u shaped. I was locked out after 2am when the bars close @ 3am - yes, I enjoyed the night life! It is what it is - 100... More

Sometimes trip advisor reviews can be deceiving, but take these at face value! The downtown location in a historic hotel is priced accordingly, as it is a bit rundown and being above the bar is truly sleepless. Do note that most of the rooms share a bathroom down the hall. Our first room was occupied with a sleeping girl when... More

I also thought I knew what I was gettng into.....historic hotels that claim to be restored are often not, and I expected it to not be great. This was a little worse than expected, tho. We reserved a non-smoking room with private bath. The lobby was beautiful - the old restored hotel we wanted. The stairs were beautiful for the... More

I write this while lying here wide awake at 3 a.m. because the drunks, "music" and fireworks from the bar downstairs and the street make it impossible to sleep. Thursday night was bad but tonight, Friday, is impossible. The hotel is surrounded by bars, and drunks stumble around the streets even in the afternoons. The drunks in the room next... More

i will start by stating that I did my research and thought I knew what I was getting into. A hundred year old bar and hotel celebrating its anniversary complete with thin walls, music until the wee hours, slanted floors, no elevator and shared bathrooms. What I did not expect was filthy 1960's style acoustic ceiling tiles that threatened to... More

Center great location, and very cool old vibe. Since we were not drinking we skipped the bar. The room was hidden on the third floor and it was ok. We enjoyed it even if we had some problems with the bathroom door and with the tv maybe with the micro as well if I remember well:-) But it was still... More
