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

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

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 want to thank you for your comment regarding the odor of smoke in the hotel. I thought it over and have since made the whole hotel NON SMOKING. I have posted large signs in every room plus a penalty is charged if someone does smoke in their room. Again thank you ever so much Bettye owner 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

Thank you for your comment. The hotel now has 24 hour desk clerks on duty. I am puzzled about the lack of internet connection as we have wireless to all the rooms. Also, I spotted two rooms that had beds that seemed to collapse in the middle and replaced them. Thank you for your insights Bettye More
