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

My wife, 14-year-old daughter, and I recently stayed at the Alaskan bar and hotel and we thought the place was terrific. The Staff are incredibly helpful and the manager Paul is a great resource of information. The rooms are basic (it's over 100 years old - what do you expect?) but they are nice, clean and have a lot of... More

I would give this a zero if I could. The hotel claims it is smoke-free, but it only went smoke-free recently, so the rooms stink like smoke. The window opens and behind it is a wall with a sewage area beneath and the stench is horid. So, you are stuck in a window-less room that reeks of smoke. Sleeping on... More

I personally feel awful about your experience at my hotel, The Alaskan Hotel in Juneau, Alaska. We were totally full and opened up a room that is not open to the public for you and charged you $30 plus tax. In hindsight we should have turned you away, but felt that nay room was better than no room as the... More

The Alaskan Hotel and Bar is the oldest in the city of Juneau, which is a very historic, yet contemporary and charming town, beautifully nestled between tall mountains and a major inlet of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is not painstakingly maintained, but is all the more charming for it. It has a true vintage and sweetly funky feel. It's... More

First, I must say that I disagree with vardis3, who called this hotel a "smoker's paradise." I stayed here in May 2014, and neither the hotel rooms nor the public places smelled of smoke. The location is great, the rooms were as clean as 100-year-old rooms could be, the bed was comfortable, the towels were fluffy. That said, the hotel... More
