We chose this hotel because of its central location and also for what we thought was its proximity to the local ferry terminal. Fellow travellers please note, the ferry terminal has been relocated and it is now about 18 miles from town, around US$40 cab fare one way. The hotel is Heritage Listed but that is no excuse for shonky... More

As mentioned in other reviews shared bathrooms, loud music and people from the pub across the street during the night, carrying your luggage to 2nd floor are definite Cons. However, outdated interior of this place creates an original experience, and our stay felt like a visit to a time capsule. For those looking for a quality; lodging in any chain... More

After my flight I went here for lunch, atmosphere was excellent and the staff were very pleasant. Women may receive a bit more attention than they are used to though, my partner was hit on after I'd only walked away for a minute.

First up - this is an old building, it has character (which also means quirks and a few rough edges...It probably had an out house originally so they've had to squeeze in a bathroom for the en-suites - not conventional style, but it's in there) Second up - everything in Alaska is expensive, so at $100 a night it's just...

We didn't stay at the hotel but I can tell you we had a blast at the bar. Historic building with funky ambiance. The staff and band went out of their way to make us feel welcome. If I ever make it back to Juneau, I would love to stay at the hotel only because we had such a great... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel and after the initial culture shock, (which was basically brought on by the bad reviews I have read about the Hotel) we settled in and enjoyed our stay. The beds are clean and comfortable, we had a suite for $100 a night and it included a seperate toilet and a seperate shower room.... More

Downtown Juneau is a funky place and this hotel suits the town perfectly. I really loved my room. I highly recommend spending the extra $10 that gets you the suite. The location is great. You're right in the heart of things. There's tons of shops, great places to eat (Tracy's Crab Shack is a must!), and plenty of bars!

Stayed here a couple of nights, had a real old time feel to it including climbing 2 flights of stairs with a 50lb suitcase. This old place creaks and groans as you walk around and the walls don't hold any sound back. Bed was comfortable and there was a good ensuite attached to the room. Very reasonably priced and well...

In 1975, the first place I stayed when I got to Juneau from Haines was the Alaskan Hotel - but on my recent extended stay of many months, I had a bathroom in my room! The baseboard heater didn't work, but they immediately brought a portable oil radiator heater that worked well. The bed was soft, and the tv was... More
