I'd probably give this hotel 3 1/2 stars if I could. Four stars would suggest I'd actually "recommend it," which seems a bit of a stretch.
First, the property is fine. It's basically a decent budget hotel, but in Juneau -- especially in the summer -- "budget hotels" can be quite expensive. Don't expect to get your money's worth, at least compared to value in the Lower 48. That's impossible in Juneau, and you'll be disappointed. If you have points in the Wyndham Rewards program, I'd recommend you use them.
The staff is friendly and helpful, and that's a big plus. Manager Rachel went "above and beyond" to help us with a reservation problem, and we greatly appreciated it.
Rooms are of different sizes, but are generally large enough. Some rooms have useful refrigerators and microwaves, and some don't. Ask for an equipped room if you need it. Beds are OK, but not great. Rooms seem clean enough, but some of the furniture, especially the chairs, can look a bit gnarly.
The free breakfast is terrible, but that's generally the case in all Super 8's. You can make some toast, get a low quality packaged Danish, have some basic cereal, yogurt and fruit cup, and that's about it. After a day, you'll make other arrangements. Heck, in a pinch you can go next door to McDonalds. For a dollar, you can get a sausage biscuit that is, sadly, a zillion times better than the hotel's breakfast.
I like the location of the hotel -- especially if you have a car. It's basically within walking distance of the airport and is central to everything, especially shopping. The only thing the location is not ideal for is downtown, which is still only about 10 minutes away on a fast road. I didn't utilize it, but their free shuttle around town would certainly be useful if you didn't have a vehicle.
Bottomline, this is an acceptable place to stay, and you should certainly consider it. But it's nothing more than basic accommodations, so keep your expectations in check.
