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

After a dreadful night in a hotel at Seattle airport, this was a very welcome surprise, The staff on reception were very nice, and the room was lovely and comfortable. The airport transport picked us up and the driver was a real character; he also very kindly dropped us in Juneau the next day to pick up a day trip,... More

My partner and I stayed here the first and third nights after we flew into Alaska (we camped at medenhall campground in between which is highly recommended). The rooms were clean and offered a good view of mt Juneau (first room) and mt Roberts (second room). Close to town with willing front staff to help organise taxis and bag storage.

Nothing fancy but nice clean rooms and good price. Lots of parking and only 10 min walk to downtown. Closing time of stores depends on cruise ships. I recommend having dinner at the Fish & Chip Company at the Wharf and having the halibut & chips ($19.95 but worth it)

The service sucked, the reservation was messed up, it took over 30 minutes to get checked in, and the book keeping was horrible. The room was dry but the walls and ceiling are paper thin so you hear everything. They do have a great shuttle driver from the airport. There is a little diner next to them that was good... More

Ratings often have to be adjusted to take into account the area that you are in and the competition that exists. For that reason, I've rated the Driftwood Hotel as a 3 star as there isn't much around to compete with it. In other areas, it would rate much lower. But, this is Juneau. The front desk staff headed up... More

Dirty and loud, skipped soundproofing. No nice hotels here. Just another place cashing in on a building built 50 years ago and not updated. No service amenities. Only thing going for it is it is close to downtown and a liquor store. I would not stay here again if I had my choice.

the room was great with a full kitchen available. When we arrived at 2am from the ferry on our motorcycle we parked out the front of the office (as we do at all hotels) and the guy behind the desk came out and said "You need to move that! the shuttle is coming" there was plenty of room for a...

Basic, low cost lodging within walking distance of downtown and the cruise ships. We found all staff to be helpful and friendly; there is a van that will pick you up at the airport or ferry and drop you off. Driver, an older man from New York, is a hoot to talk to and has good information to share. Hotel... More

I stayed here for 5 days and was very comfortable. I choose this Hotel for walking convince to Downtown area. I was pleasantly surprised on how clean the rooms are and how friendly and knowledgeable staff are. The price is right. The Hotel provides a complementary shuttle to and from the Airport and Ferry. We arrived to the Airport and... More
