I always check ratings, reveiws, location, pictures, and price. I really missed the mark on this one! I looked at the pictures on the web site that looked nice, and booked the room overlooking the harbor. Harbor view and balcony were like nothing. This motel had a bar and restaurant but didn't want to go due to the cleanliness in other areas. This place is nothing like the pictures, but stayed anyway or we would have lost our deposit for two days and would need to find another motel at the last minute. I have never seen carpet this dirty in a motel. Some paint and thorough cleaning would really help, but it would still be a sub par motel. I rated this motel as a 2 star, and feel guilty rating it that high. Don't waste your time and ruin your visit in Juneau by picking this motel!!!

The people who has given negative reviews seems to be so spoiled and just wants to find something to complain about, no matter how small it is. Beside from that, the staffs were really friendly and extremely nice once you get to know them. They’re one of the most hard working people I’ve ever met. The service was excellent and the food; oh. my. GOD they were absolutely delicious! BW Seafood Pot is a MUST HAVE! Along with the King Crab leg and the Mushroom Swiss Burger! The rooms were really nice and cozy. I stayed in a room with a jacuzzi in it! Never had a room like that before and I enjoyed it; sitting in a hot tub while watching a movie with a bottle of champagne, two thumbs up! Both the room and the restaurant has the most stunning views. I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit! Phenomenal and deserves my five stars!

First off I didn't read reviews, BIG mistake. This is a very simple and old and cheesy hotel, the room we had was kinda clean but everything was old. First, the bar was open but only 4 people were there, and 2 were Asian girls looked like "working girls" dressed right off the street corner and were all over the two guys there.. 2nd, It's not on the water like the pictures suggest.. 3rd, no TV, wouldn't connect to direct tv. 4th and very important, our room was on the AK-Highway, yes 50 feet from the road. Loud cars, trucks all nite. We never slept. Stay elsewhere it's worth the extra $$.

The good: The bar has been updated numerous time in the past several years. very comfortable, super view of the harbor, lots of space and TVs to watch the game The bad: bar tenders and servers are not so talented, don't speak great English, menu is off the wall odd and food sporadically decent. The ugly: the hotel and building are in need of renovation, sketchy inhabitants.
