We were very happy with our experience here. Shuttle picked us up at the airport as planned. Check in was quick and easy. Our regular room on the ground floor was basic, but clean. Bathroom did show it's age, but it was clean and everything worked. Kitchenette was great to have, both a regular grocery store (very close) and Rainbow... More

Very affordable and very clean loved the stay there and would recommend it to Anyone. The one bedrooms are very roomy and I had a new 65" tv and new furniture in my room. This hotel is nicer than the other major ones in downtown Juneau.

I'm a regular and I just have to say that the new staff/Owners have really cleaned up the place. It's really turned around. The wifi works great, they have good customer service, and the attention to detail is really just exceptional.

I love Alaska, but the Driftwood Hotel made it all the more memorable. It really is the best bang for your buck in Juneau! The staff is very friendly and helpful I was even offered a free shuttle by the manager when it turned out our plane arrived a day late. The rooms are clean and spacious and the new... More

I can't give it 5 dots, because it's a budget hotel and it's noticeably so. But for those on a budget, it's a great choice. Very convenient for walking to anything downtown - restaurants, the wharf, the state government offices. Staff were very helpful and friendly if a little bit casual with customers (they're young!). Whatever I asked for I... More

Although the Lodge was a little tired and old, the staff were excellent and they were very helpful. They provided free pick-up from the airport & Alaska Marine Highway Ferry service which was extremely helpful. The location is close to town and easy access to local bus services.

The towels were amazing! The central location in downtown Juneau was perfect for walking to local shopping, restaurants and our cruise hospitality suite. They are also just a block from the city bus which goes to all parts of Juneau. The room was certainly good value and just as good as some of the other available more expensive accommodations in...

great location for this hotel. Very popular and nice breakfast/lunch restaurant. Frindly staff. Transfer to/from airport and Alaskan Marine Highway Ferry. New management starts updating the hotel. Nice view from our second floor entrance to mountains and goats.

I think we stayed in a one-bedroom apartment (but I think we booked a deluxe queen room, not sure). It was very spacious; a large TV/couch area (also a small kitchen table for two) kitchenette and queen bed. The kitchenette is great if you want to cut costs as you only pay $10-20 extra for it compared to other rooms... More

I paid extra for a room with a nice view-3rd floor (walk-up)-big picture window view of mountains and hillside homes-room also had kitchenette-was there 5 nights-very friendly staff-free shuttle to and from airport/ferry. Think this is a good choice for someone on a budget who wants a clean place, decent location (10 min. walk to center of town) and doesn't... More
