I actually read quite a few reviews of the Alaskan before we booked, so I basically knew what we were getting into. However, there were a few pros and cons that I thought that I would share from our recent girls trip to Juneau. Pros: Extremely friendly staff member Lou, who switched our rooms for us and brought up a... More

This is the kind of place you want to stay at if you want to experience what Alaska was all about. It's not the kind of place you want to stay if you love Westin and their like because of the sterile environment or luxury. We stayed in the room with it's own bath and, while quite a "funky" design,... More

I have just checked out of the Alaskan Hotel after three days there with a colleague of mine. I needed to write my review ASAP before I forgot what a terrible experience it was. When we first arrived we were greeted by one of the older female staff. I use the word greeted lightly as the grunt she made as... More

Had a good experience. We stayed here Sun night - Wed. We requested our room be one of the hotel room makeovers. The remodel was nice. The room still had original wood furniture and character. Bed was comfortable. We had a TV with all the channels. The bathroom on the small side but not a huge issue. The sink/vanity not... More

My friend and I stayed in the Alaskan hotel for two nights. The room was sparse, but clean. The bathrooms were down the hall, cleaned frequently and we never had to wait. It felt safe, but our street side room was loud, so bring ear plugs. I wouldn't hesitate as a woman to stay here alone. Great location for hikes... More

This is more like a hostel than a hotel. We got lucky and got a bathroom in our room but other rooms use a shared bathroom down the hallway. Our room was very basic (two twin beds/kitchette...which looks like it came from 1913) but that was ok with us because we literally just used to room to keep our things... More

We loved staying here on our honeymoon trip. The hotel decor and vibe was just what we were looking for. At times the staff seemed stressed but were helpful, always treated us well and went out of their way to get us a room. Loved the bar and conversations with interesting people. If you are hard to please and expecting... More

Beware if you are traveling with children or a group... most rooms do not have bathrooms (public are provided) and the rooms that do have no door or curtain for privacy. Room was not very clean, insects everywhere (I get it, place is old) bathroom looked like it hadn't been touched prior to arrival. You will not have a quiet... More

This was probably my worst hotel stay ever!! The lady at the desk was incredibly friendly and was the only reason we booked the hotel in the first place. We used the hotel as a base and didn't return until the end of the day. When we went to the room we sat down and were soaked from the bed.... More

I am sorry that your experience at my hotel , The Alaskan Hotel in Juneau was less than wonderful. I must say that I have never received a complaint about the sheets not being dry enough. I have hired exchange students from other countries and the learning curve has been steep, plus our head of housekeeping was very sick for... More

Stayed on a family trip in July. Booked by phone which was a good idea as each of the rooms in this 100-year-old hotel is different and we were put in a room which was (just) large enough to have two rollaway beds. As a particular plus we had a view over the July 4th fireworks! The room was otherwise... More
