If you are a hotel snob and expect mints on your pillow for a 5 star rating, you won't like it here. I think another reviewer put it best: "Would I take my wife here on vacation? - No. Would I stay here if I was in town and needed basic accommodations? Yes." This is no Hilton but the room...

The rooms are clean and descent for all your basic needs and the staff is always friendly. Unfortunately, you have to get cups from the restaurant or the front desk. They have a small food/snack area where you can buy pops and such with cash. They have a 48 hour minimum request for a free shuttle to the airport or...

The Breakwater advertises a free airport and ferry shuttle but I found this was not quite true. When I arrived in Juneau and called for the airport shuttle I was told I has to give 48 hours notice for the shuttle. They refused to pick me up so I had to pay $22 for a cab. They did arrange a...

I started working for the breakwater a couple weeks ago. My family and I had been living in an RV, without running water and so we thought it would be nice to stay in one of the rooms for a week. It was around $800 for one week. The room was foul. The floors had clearly not been vacuumed, there...

I'm so bummed out right now! I rented a room for a week from the breakwater because my kids and I have been living in our tiny RV and we really wanted a break from it, and a shower, but it's the biggest mistake I ever made. When we got into the room there was a thick layer of moldy,...

Definately was not paying attention when I made this booking. Its a motel at best. Old, is all I can comment really. Staff is friendly. Wouldn't eat here...not enough foot traffic to warrant not using a microwave in the kitchen. Beers are cold and cheap. View is beautiful. Rooms...mmmm exactly what you'd expect from a roadside inn. Entire hotel is...

I live in Alaska and have been to Juneau several times on business as well as traveling to other parts of the state. The positive: staff was friendly and helpful. The ladies at the front desk greeted me and helped me when I didn't have my room key (it was locked in the room). There are snacks available near the...

Great service and Friendly new owner. The bed is comfortable. The prices are very good with fantastic ocean view. Try the food steak and sushi for a nice dinner meal, portions are just right and the help is very attentive and friendly. I will come back again and again.

I had the pleasure to stay at this inn for one night, before I embarked on a cruise ship. The surrounding is absolutely amazing from all points of view. The Inn is very close to the down town. At the Inn I have found very friendly people, excellent view from the room, the service was great. Overall a wonderful place...
