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

Free shuttles from Airport and Ferry Dock which are 20 to 40 minutes from downtown. The shuttle was convenient in both directions. This alone makes the motel a good deal, the motel is a very good value by Alaska standards . The motel is a basic motel with no frills, they gave us bar soap, but no shampoo. We had... More

You need to call the shuttle as soon as ferry arrives and then wait for them to arrive - about 25 minutes. No one announced it but went out to a full shuttle and had to squeeze in. Quite uncomfortable as luggage area overflowing. Then got as far as gas station and returned to pick up more people. They got... More

The Driftwood airport shuttle was easy & free. Our room had a kitchen which we made good use of. The stores near by made it easy to eat in when we wanted to and it should be noted that pretty much everything closes down early each day as the cruise ship people go back to their boats, sometimes dinner is...

We stayed for a quick overnight between flight and ferry. Arriving late on the jet, I was told to call when we landed for a pickup. Shuttle took a solid half hour to get there, and when it arrived we sat in the van with another party for a further 20 minutes "waiting for more passengers" while our driver sat... More
