** 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

There is good reason this inn is ranked #15 out of 16 hotels in Juneau (16 being the worst). I checked into this hotel in May. The room was filthy (dirty curtains and bed spreads) and reeked of smoke. I asked for another room, but was told there were none available. I actually had to leave the room/hotel after being... More

The room was clean and the staff was helpful. The lounge was old school. The restaurant was a convenience. The views were priceless. Being that it is within walking distance of downtown was helpful. Overall the hotel was worth the price but I would not have wanted to pay much more more for it.

I stayed at this hotel twice, once in the summer of 2008 and again in 2012. It is right across the street from the Aurora Basin boat harbor so it is convenient for anyone arriving in Juneau in their own boat. I arrived by kayak after paddling the Inside Passage from Bellingham, Washington and the location was perfect for my... More

Worst hotel on the planet. First I booked because their website listed a pool and fitness room under hotel amenities, what it did not say is that the pool they were referring to is some kind of youth rec center two or three miles away that is not in anyway associated with this hotel,meaning you have to pay extra. Bottom... More
