We booked without high expectations, but we needed a quick overnight between a late ferry arrival and an early flight out. We wanted to be downtown and the Driftwood offered a free shuttle. Never again. Dirty carpet, stale smell. The kind of place where you immediately yank off the bedspread and inspect the sheets. To get a breath of fresh... More

We had two nights in Juneau and found the accommodation okay. Room was hot and stuffy when we arrived and unfortunately there was no fan or air con available for use. It was a bit noisy as our room was on the corner and exposed to traffic noise. Room was clean and had a full kitchen which was great but... More

Overall the Lodge was a little worn but the people on staff were great. We were traveling with a large group and they were able to accommodate us all and even called a cab and paid for it to get us all to the airport on time when we couldn't fit in their van.

On the plus side. It's close to downtown. You can walk anywhere and it's about three blocks from all the action. It's clean and the maid service is excellent and there is a good restaurant place attached to it. However, checking in was worrisome, not exactly welcoming staff, the man was more interested in his girlfriend than dealing with a... More

One asset is the transportation to airport and ferry terminal. Easy walk to museum, restaurants and the cruise-ship center of tourist Juneau. Public bus and grocery store also nearby. Staff is helpful and room fairly well kept. Ask at the desk if you need shampoo, tea, etc.

We spent 3 nights at the Driftwood. The room was clean, the bed was fine. there is a nice little restaurant (the Sandpiper) attached to the hotel where we had fabulous breakfasts everyday. the hotel is a block from the Juneau Museum (wonderful!). The location is away from the cruise ships, and walkable to everything. The only downside is that... More

A couple of blocks from the state museum and a short walk from downtown, coin-operated washer and dryer, friendly staff, courtesy shuttle. However, we found the housekeeping came up short. The bathroom was cleaned, but one day the spread had been pulled up but the bed hadn’t been made and the other day bed wasn’t made at all until we... More

The room was small for three people and had a slight odor. It was clean, though, and the staff was great. Best price in town and close to downtown sites. I would stay here again, and recommend it if you want value and walking distance to the downtown area.

Last weekend I had about 35 family & friends staying at the Driftwood from all around the world, including Australia & South Africa! Everyone was in town for my wedding. The staff at the Driftwood are friendly, helpful & very accommodating. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable & service is quick. It never smelled of cigarettes in any... More

We stayed for 5 days in one of the 2 bed apartments on the 3rd floor. The room was clean and didn't stink of smoke like I read on here previously. Staff was very nice and helpful. Shuttle to and from lodge runs every hour. This is an older lodge. So, if you are wanting a more classy stay this... More
