The hotel is beside a major city construction zone and the walls shake when the bull dozers start work at 0700hrs each morning. Staff are rude and obnoxious and are not interested at all in helping you or fixing any problems. They don't know the meaning of customer service. Would advise the steer clear of!!!!!

Good location, but major construction is ongoing and into 2016. The noise started shortly after 7 AM and goes on 7 days a week. Cranes, front loaders and dump trucks operated under our window blowing dust in and making it difficult to talk on the phone. Management was unwilling to make any accommodations and didn't have even basic amenities such... More

We were at the Driftwood for four nights. We flew into Juneau and spent two nights there. We then took a shuttle to the ferry terminal to go to Skagway for one night. From Skagway we took an overnight ferry to Sitka for a one night stay there. We returned via ferry to Juneau and spent another night at the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days, in one of the 1 bedroom suites, on the 3rd floor. There was free, timely transportation to and from the airport. It's not a fancy hotel, but had what we needed for our stay. It was quite comfortable, and with the kitchenette, we were able to prepare some meals. The only detriment... More

My stay at the Driftwood Hotel was ok. The shuttle service from and back to the ferry was punctual (and also free). There is also possibility to do your laundry. The room was clean and spacious with free wifi. The mattress of my bed was not very comfortable and felt rather old (with "pits").

We stayed here for 3 nights this August. We were attracted by their rates. The room was extremely dated. The bathroom showed a lot of differed maintenance. When we asked for shampoo, we we're told they didn't have any for guests, and didn't have shower caps either. While the housekeeping staff seemed nice, the front desk staff made errors on... More

You have to understand what you are getting at the Driftwood. It is a basic motel on 3 floors with a restaurant attached and a convenient liquor store. The rooms could do with some maintenance, but are clean and comfortable. There is excellent wifi. The Driftwood is very well located In Juneau, close to the docks and the shopping/tourist areas....

I've stayed at the Driftwood multiple times and found this summer (2014) that it was now under new ownership, with the name change from Driftwood Lodge to Driftwood Hotel. The rooms are pretty much the same, with same furnishings, including bedspreads. Some new TVs perhaps, but it may just have been a room I hadn't stayed in before. New towels,... More

We stayed at the Driftwood Hotel last year. The price for the lodging is great, and since we did not spend too much time in our hotel, we were satisfied. We asked for the third floor, since I have read reviews saying that it is too noisy in the 2nd and 1st floors- people walk above you, making it difficult... More

We were in Juneau one night and it was inexpensive and okay for a night. Don't take the room above the boiler ( hot) they offered it but we waited for another room. Would not stay there longer term and would look for another place and pay more for it. Dumpy but the room was clean. We don't know Juneau... More
