My wife and I were there for 5 nights in early June 2021. We rented what was called a kitchenette with private bath, and we figured we would be making our breakfasts in the room. However, the stove in our room 333 only has two burners, of which only one worked, and there were no pots, pans, or silverware. We tried to get by for the first night, but we would not have been happy with this room for the whole stay (not to mention that the rear of the hotel just outside room 333 is where the employees go to smoke). We went out on our first full day, and when we came back to the hotel, we saw that the staff were cleaning rooms 330 and 331. Both of these rooms were much nicer than our room, and we immediately went to see of we could get switched to one of them. Fortunately, the manager, Echo (sp?) was able to get us into room 330 for the rest of our stay. Much larger, brighter, and actually had an equipped kitchenette! Room 333 would probably be OK for one night, two tops, but not for an extended stay like ours. Be sure to ask for rooms 330 or 331! Have enclosed photos - the first two are of room 333, the others are 330. We didn't spend much time in the downstairs bar, because the weather was so nice that we preferred to be outside most of the time, so can't tell you much about that. Great downtown location with lots of other places within easy walking distance. And no cruise ship people now! Go before they come back!

My wife and I came for a weekend trip from Dallas, Texas to see Juneau. Room 206. This was one of our highlights. The history of this hotel is so vast and interesting. It is family owned and they work hard and go the extra mile for their guest. People knock the condition and paper thin walls. Its 2021. Get a noise maker app if that’s the issue. Put yourself in this hotel 100 years ago and enjoy the history of this place. My wife and I think it’s perfect and can’t wait to come back.

Nice hotel in a great location in Juneau. You can walk to the docks and the tram up to mount Roberts. Right along a main Street in Juneau. Walking distance to the bus and museums. The rooms are small and many without bathrooms and showers but the public bathrooms and showers are nice. Mike the manager was awesome and the bar workers were awesome. The bar is attached to the hotel. No elevators so you have to be able to climb stairs. Enjoyed this historical building

Stayed one night before flying to a remote area of Alaska to fish. When I arrived to check in, the front door was locked, but the front desk operator heard me knock and eventually opened the door. He had alcohol on his breathe, and said I was lucky he heard me knock. He confirmed my reservation, but said I had to move to a different room because my reserved room had flooded. When I entered the room, the kitchen sink was plugged, the toilet seat in the bathroom was not mounted on the toilet, there was no bathroom vanity, only a sink pedestal mounted in the bedroom. The room was cold and had no thermostat, so I asked the front desk how I can get heat to my room. He said there was no heat to the room because the water boiler system broke 2 years ago and still hadn't been fixed, but he offered me a portable heater. And the room was located directly above the bar which played load music until 2am, making it impossible to get a restful sleep. Overall, the hotel needs major upgrades and smells very old. It was a very strange experience. I would not stay there again.

Well located on the main street of this picturesque town. Many restaurants nearby. Hotel has much charm--stained glass, wide staircase. Bar is not noisy. we paid more for a street facing room which has large windows and a slight view of harbor and mountains.
