We had very good service during check in time. Our room was clean, comfortable and on the corner. The door did not lock very well. Motel was located within walking distance of downtown. Breakfast was not included.

Thank you for letting us know about your time with us. Though we do not serve breakfast in the hotel, The Sandpiper Café is located right next door and has one of the best breakfasts in Juneau. I recommend it to anyone who is visiting Juneau. I hope you enjoyed your time in our city.

Stayed here for 1 night after a weeks hunt & found it to be just about right for our needs. We had a luggage malfunction (thanks, Alaska Airlines !) and so were given a room on the first floor. The staff cleaned it just for us (otherwise we would have gotten 2 twin beds) They also had a cooler for...

Stayed here 2 nights in a little group of 2 couples. Cons - the 2 bedroom unit consisted of 1 bedroom with twin beds, which along with the only bathroom was accessed through a semi enclosed space in which a double bed was located. Hence a little awkward with no privacy for one couple. - carpets in the living area...

Very slow check in. 20 minutes. Everyone wearing coats because cold in office. Room small, tv sucks, 20 years old. Poor color. 18" no movies Carpet stained. Big stain. Cement blocks for walls. Otherwise it seems clean. Biggest deal is 10$ taxi ride anywhere.

The Driftwood Hotel was great! Everyone was very nice & accomodating. Room was nice and clean. It's a good basic hotel for a good price in a perfect location. I'm not a high-maintenance fancy person so this hotel worked well for me. I had good sleeps and enjoyed my stay! Thank~you!!

We arrived by ferry at 2:30AM and the shuttle bus we'd arranged was there within a few minutes after our arrival. Shuttle driver was great. Room was large and comfortable, 2-bedroom with mini-kitchen. My wife is fussy about pillows and she rated them (and the bedding) as very good. From the room we had a great view of the mountain...

Dear Charleygirl, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I'm sorry to hear about the smoke detector. We should have been able to fix this immediately, even though it was a holiday weekend. I'm pleased to hear that the rest of your stay went well. It sounds like you stayed in one of the rooms we recently worked...

We had a great time at the Driftwood Hotel! Our flight got in earlier than check in time so they upgraded us with no charge to a one bedroom room. The location was perfect, downtown and close to everything so it was very easy to walk to almost everything! The room was clean and spacious and the service was great!...

We chose this hotel for its location- easy walk to town, the kitchenette- saved money on a few meals, and free airport shuttle- cheerful driver and on time. It's not modern, but clean and had comfortable beds. There are two very good restaurants across the parking lot.

The Driftwood is a great hotel for re-grouping! After spending 5 days kayaking around Admiralty Island is was a perfect landing spot to regroup for our next adventure!! Staying here in a nice, large clean room with laundry room down the hall was just the deal.
