Midtown location. Got picked up at the airport by a friendly driver who did not stop speaking to throughout the drive and kept asking each passenger personal questions. No elevator. Shabby place, rooms are small and facing the parking lot, making one hear every car coming or living. Noise from front parking area, front office and open corridors can be... More

Nothing fancy, but then the places I stay never are. Good people, fun to talk to. Just checking in the staff and I had some good laughs. I would stay there again. They have a shuttle that runs between the airport or the ferry. That is very helpful to any traveler. Many Alaskans stay here when traveling to Juneau. So... More

It is similar to a Motel 6. They got the room wrong on the first night and we had to call their attention to it. The room was not cleaned by the staff 4 of the 6 days we were there. I tried to talk to the manager and they would not respond to my inquiries. I would tell one... More

My husband and I used the Driftwood as our ‘home base’ during our recent Alaskan travels. We stayed at the Driftwood on three separate occasions during that time. The free shuttle service offered by the hotel worked flawlessly all three times, both from the airport and the ferry terminal. The drivers were all informative and professional. Just this service alone... More

We also stayed here after an un-cruise-it is just up the street from the drop-off. The hotel picked up our luggage from the hospitality room so we got off the ship and went right into town. Compared to the rest of Juneau, this place is a great deal. Right on the edge of town. Right next to the sandpiper cafe... More

The Driftwood has three things going for it. In a town that has few hotels (many of which are expensive), this place was a decent value. It is also in a decent location close to "downtown." Its free shuttle service was reliable for us each time we used it (to and from the airport and to and from the ferry... More

We had a good two day stay. Our third floor room was quiet, though the construction crew started work early on the new state museum being built next door. Our room was spacious and clean and included fridge and microwave. The hotel is a five minute walk from the busyness of the cruise ship docks and daily throng of tourists... More

I was set to give the Driftwood 5 stars because they deliver good value and a decent overall experience. It won't be mistaken for the Ritz, but they don't offer you that either. My family of five stayed there for 3 nights over the past month and the fact we could comfortably fit into a single unit for less than... More

Great location, clean rooms. Staff very friendly! Loved the shuttle Driver! Owners very helpful! Quiet location, not too close to the busy, noisy tourist downtown area, but a perfect walking distance! When we return to Juneau, this is where we will stay again! Bonus liquor store across the parking lot!!
