Don't let the appearance fool you, yes it's old but the staff were all friendly and always willing to give advice on the best things to do in town. We had a room on the north side of the hotel so we had a great view of the channel, Douglas Island, and the mountains that surround Juneau. The only thing... More

Very clean hotel. The staff was nice and friendly. The room was large and the bed comfortable. There was a frigerator, and microwave. The Internet was fast and reliable. I walked to the grocery store around the corner for breakfast food. It is only a few blocks from the downtown, and waterfront.

Our family gathering of 35 stayed here over the 4th of July. I would do so again in a heartbeat. Very accommodating staff. They catered dinner for us one night that was ample amounts of well prepared food. The restaurant food was good as well. All in all, a great room, good staff

We arrived at the hotel early morning after arriving on our Un-Cruise trip. We hoped we could leave our luggage but we were allowed to take our room as one was available. Our room was a suite and massive. Unusual warm weather also meant it was very warm but the staff opened up the room before we got in. The... More

It was our joy to spend two nights at the Prospector Hotel in early May -- and we would be very happy to stay there again. The hotel may look a bit dated, but everything was clean, the room was very spacious and comfortable, and the staff was very kind. Though we were staying with airline miles we were treated... More

This hotel was perfect for me and my family of 4. They have a restaurant on site and the food was really good. It was within walking distance to down town where there is a lot of shopping and local restaurants. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. It is a little...

I'd say this is the equivalent of a older Motel 6. It was quite clean but the decor was dated, pillows were not comfy, electrical outlets were few and hard to get to, shower spout was very low (had to scrunch down to get under the water flow) and the water pressure was not very good. But it was a... More

Based on other reviews and my husband's previous experience, I didn't expect too much from the Prospector, but it nonetheless failed to live up to my low expectations. To be fair, I'll start with as many positive things that I can find to say about this property. It is centrally located in downtown Juneau, within easy walking distance of the... More
