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

After reading several negative reviews of this hotel, I expected the worst, however we were pleasantly surprised. The shuttle was waiting for us when we arrived and the driver told us about the highlights in a funny way. We had to wait an hour for our room to be ready, a bit of a nuisance as we arrived at around... More

This hotel is a basic motel, clean with comfortable beds. Curtains coming off the rail. Noise can be heard from the floor above. I'd emailed to inform of a change of arrival time of the plane and received a confirmation that it had been noted re the shuttle. As with other guests, it was NOT noted and we were left... More

Our original booking was done while the hotel was under the previous management and floorplans were shown on the website. Due to a change in plans we no longer needed the 2 bedroom room so I emailed and changed it to a 1 bedroom going by memory that there were two beds in the room but not thinking to specify... More

The folks at the front desk were very accomadating when due to a delayed flight I had to change my reservation the day before. The shuttle driver was charming!! And they have a shuttle to both the ferry and airport. The room was basic. A bit dated except for the large flat panel TV! Also, it was very clean. The... More

The room in this "hotel" at $115 is more like one in a $70 motel. Could hear every footstep in the room above. By 4 pm my room still had not been made up (I was there two nights). When I asked why not at the front desk I was told "they forgot to put you on the occupied room... More

Most reviews are fairly accurate, realizing everyone has a difference experience. We were there 5 days later in August. Positives- Very reasonable rate for Juneau. Basic, clean rooms. Our towels were terrific! A big bar of Dial soap. The shuttle was right on time both for arrival and departure from JNU. The Sandpiper Cafe, for breakfast and lunch, is wonderful...right... More

We were stopping in Juneau en route to Haines and were looking for somewhere cheap but decent. Originally we wanted to stay at the local hostel, but needed a shuttle to get to and from the ferry terminal in Auke Bay multiple times and ended up choosing to stay here instead. The first time the shuttle service was fine, but... More
