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

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
