Save yourself the trouble, money and pain! I don't usually write bad reviews (I usually give people and companies the benefit of the doubt or chalk it up to having a bad day) but am doing this to prevent anyone and everyone I can from having to go through the headache and trouble I went through. I stayed at the... More

I'm visiting relatives in Juneau and am so pleased with Alaska Hotel. It is in the heart of historic downtown. Many places to walk to right outside the front door. The people are so nice. Every encounter has been pleasant and accommodating. (Help with window [I'm such a wimp.], directions, registration [I went in the wrong door]) The housekeeper gave... More

This is a horrible hotel! We read a lot of reviews about this place prior to booking. We had a pretty good idea what we were to expect. We can tolerate a lot when it comes to hotels. This one is unacceptable! We knew we were going to be on the third floor. No problem. The whole hotel smells dank.... More

We booked this place because it was inexpensive. After reading reviews, we knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into. We found this place to be very traditional (old brothel!!). The live music in the bar was great. The atmosphere seemed like that of an old hotel and bar in the mining days. The rooms could use some updating, but... More

I considered this place in Juneau because I was writing some assignments on the area for travel websites. I can overlook minor issues with hotels, but not rude staff. There is no need for it. I walked in and was glancing around the lobby and restaurant area. The woman behind the desk gave me a weird look, so I casually... More

We stayed in the Alaska Hotel 3 nights in room 311. If you can't do stairs, this hotel is not for you. We were on the 3rd floor so we had plenty of stairs. Once we unlocked the door to our room, we had more steps and arrived in a "suite". One double bed and 1 loft bed. There was... More

Our experience at this hotel was lovely. If you're looking for cookie cutter urban accommodations, this one's not for you. However, if you are looking for quaint, hospitality with a minimum of fuss in the heart of Juneau, this is the one. We loved it! The bar is beautiful and friendly and the building is awesome.

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
