This place is horrible. Cars get broken into, there are used condoms in the parking lot. Not unusual to see cops arresting tenants or have loud neighbors. The places is run poorly by the new management. Run away from this place as far as you can.

I stayed here for three nights to attend a conference. Very close to the conference center and a very short walk to the main downtown drag. Rooms are a bit dated but clean and comfortable. The only downside was that the WiFi was pretty shabby. Occasionally would work, but often not happening. Good breakfast place downstairs and a pretty basic... More

I was in one of the un-renovated rooms, not suites. Also management has changed so things may be evolving. The location is great, downtown, plenty of uncovered parking (a problem in winter). The room appeared to be from the 60s and could use a facelift. There was no thermostat so one played with a dial located on the baseboard heater.... More

We stayed in for 3 days and they provided airport shuttle service. That is really helpful. The location is close to the main city attraction. It is 5-10 minutes walking distance. The price is affordable compared to the other hotel. The appearance of the whole establishment is ok. It's quite old and can use beautification/paint job. The inside room has... More

We stayed here for eight days and it was ok for what we paid. We stayed on the third floor and our room was a good size but in need of a bit of redecorating as it is bit jaded. There was a kitchenette but it had very little in the way of pots and pans to cook with. It... More

My wife and I found the free shuttle to and from the airport and ferry terminal to be very helpful and the driver was most friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable with simple cooking facilities and a separate shower over bath and toilet. Its location would be good if you were wanting to explore some of Juneau's attractions as... More

I stayed at the Driftwood Lodge in late August. I was there for three days. I had a very nice stay there. The room was big and roomy, I was on the second floor. The view was only of the parking lot. I had a kitchenette, which consisted of a stove, full size refrigerator and sink. The bed was comfortable.... More

Free shuttle to and from the airport which was nice. Shuttle drivers very friendly. Check in was easy & they honored our request for ground level rooms that we had made when we made reservation. Easy walk to downtown attractions. Room was clean & beds comfortable. It was cool & raining so did not have to use heat or AC.... More

If you're looking for a hotel in the heart of Juneau that won't cost a small fortune, this is your place. Because the Driftwood provides shuttle service provided to and from the airport, this hotel will also save you the cost of a taxi. Hotel rooms are clean and equipped with the basics. We requested a room above the ground... More
