Very clean rooms and very accommodating with any problems we may have had. Need to schedule shuttle service w/ front desk but very good that they have such a service to take you to/from airport and ferry. Walking distance to downtown tourist shops, food, and government bldgs. Right next to the state museum (under construction until 2016) and conveniently around... More

My mother and I stayed here for a total of three nights coming and going from Juneau. It has three floors-stairs -no elevators so people with mobility issues make sure you reserve a bottom floor . There are a few advantages to this #1hotel, location -you can walk anywhere downtown from here or take the city bus around town and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and did not sleep well our whole stay. Yes, the hotel (more like motel I think) is walking distance to downtown, the front desk staff were friendly and the room was clean, but that's not worth much if you can't sleep. For starters, there is construction happening right next door at the new State... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the Driftwood, rooms were super clean and comfy. Shuttle bus from and to hotel were an added bonus (the driver I got for both rides was quite a character, and gave me a nice little tour of Juneau on my way to the hotel). Location wise, it is absolutely close to everything, less than five... More

Recommended. Had a nice room with decent furnishings, etc. Only problem was asking for shuttle to airport: staff was confused. Shuttle didn't show. Owner was great though and found us a fancy ride. I'd stay here again.

We stayed here three nights recently and were very happy with our accommodations. The rooms (we stayed in two different rooms) were clean and we felt safe there. The shuttle bus drivers were great, too, and made our visit lots of fun. Great location by downtown and the Alaska State Museum, you can walk just about everywhere. I would definitely... More

Overall, we recommend the Driftwood Hotel. It was toss up between this and a bar/hotel downtown near the cruise ships as these two are pretty close in price. We're glad we went with the Driftwood. The complimentary shuttle service was very convenient. The room was reasonably clean. The decor, well, was what you expect at this price range (aka inexpensive).... More

The Driftwood is in a good location. Walking distance to downtown. Near the cruise ships, if you happen to be a cruiser. There is no elevator. If you have a lot of luggage or special needs it might be difficult (or ask for a bottom level room). Beds are very comfortable. Big bath towels. Great water pressure. They have a... More

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times and enjoy the location and the moderate price. This last trip we spent two weeks touring Alaska and stayed in wonderful condos, B&B's and guest houses across the state. In Juneau it's nice to have a clean property within walking distance of attractions, next to a great restaurant, at a... More
