I had the pleasure to stay at this inn for one night, before I embarked on a cruise ship. The surrounding is absolutely amazing from all points of view. The Inn is very close to the down town. At the Inn I have found very friendly people, excellent view from the room, the service was great. Overall a wonderful place... More

Disgusting. If I had more time I'd approach the BBB. I got in late one night, noticed the bad smell but fell asleep as soon as I hit the pillow. When I woke up, I realized the extent of the filth. Many stains- some were likely from urine. I had reserved the room for 2 nights, but wanted to leave... More

Needed a last-minute place to stay for awhile and with the summer crowds, this was one of the few available. Planned on a week, but ended up leaving early even though I had to pay a penalty for that. Room had an unpleasant undefined smell the entire time I was there. The thinness of the walls allowed me to not... More

** It is an older building built in the 1960's & decor a little dated (i was told will be renovated as soon as they can, considering it is peak season & hard to do when the hotel is fully booked) **My room is very Clean & there is plenty of hot water, unlike other hotels in the downtown area...

I only stayed here one night and my experience was really good. Managers Crystal and Josh together provided top notch customer service and were both very hospitable including transport from the airport. They just started managing the hotel a few months ago, but are working on fixing up the outside appearance. Would definitely recommend Breakwater for their customer service and... More

I had to stay here. Came in for a business trip and this was the last room in town. Half the room is a dirty jacuzzi and no shower ! TV is from 1984. Slept on top of the blankets. Didn't want to chance it!

I feel like this hotel has gone downhill in the last few years. My husband and I travel to Juneau at least once a year and have for several years. In the beginning, this hotel wasn't the best or the nicest, but at least it was clean and somewhat maintained. It's always been one of the cheaper hotels in town... More

If you're planning in staying here, don't. Stay anywhere you can, but do yourself, and your future health a favor and sleep in your car if you need to. This is by a huge margin the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I knew I may have a problem the moment I stepped into the lobby. Run by a trio... More
