Eight day stay in kitchenette room. No hot water for half a day. Concrete walls. Bathroom incredibly small. Room too hot with no cross ventilation. Exhaust fan didn’t work. Shuttle driver was late. Group rate was $50 more per day than Expedia. Pretty much a rip off. Great breakfasts in the Sandpiper Restaurant next door, though.

It just struck me as sad. It was clean, basic, and cheap, but sad. Bare concrete walls, no vending, and they close at 3 on Sundays -- didn't know that and got locked out. There was no temperature control and the mattress was awful and had steel springs -- ery noisy and very uncomfortable. I will say the transfer worked on time, since we had to go at 3am. Would not stay here again -- it was just depressing.

We had a wonderful stay at the Driftwood Hotel! The staff was over the top helpful from the airport shuttle (they just ask you to schedule at least 24 hours in advance) to tips on excursions and getting around without a rental car. The beds are comfortable and shower was hot. Like others, we had a hard time sleeping with the temperature being high in the room; 74-76 degrees even if we left the window open on a 50 degree day. We’d keep the door open when we were in the room, but closed it at night and the temp would climb again. Hopefully, they will get more help soon to fix the issue. Our area is also having a worker shortage with people living off unemployment, so we were not bothered by the limited front desk hours (closing at 4pm). We worked with the hours grabbing ice and asking questions before they closed. Also, some have complained about not having their rooms cleaned daily- I don’t know anyone who washes their sheets and towels daily at their own home, let alone cleans their house daily, but you can request fresh towels daily and your room will be cleaned. The Sandpiper Cafe on site has huge portions and great service; the later you arrive the longer the wait because it’s great. There’s also Sacred Grounds kitty corner from the Driftwood with smoothies, espresso drinks, and grab n’ go hot and cold menu. Downtown, the Humpback Statue, and hiking are steps away. We enjoyed eagles overhead, seals a block away, and great food and people everywhere.

If you are on a tight budget and not concerned about amenities then this might be ok ..some things to keep in mind..There are no elevators and we had to haul our luggage to third floor. We stayed 4 days and even though we left the service room sign on door our bed was never made or sheets replaced. We had to go to office to get fresh towels. The shower/bathroom was so small you have to stand sideways to close the door. The bed squeeked so this indicated new mattress needed. Also so you know there are several resident Alaskan Ravens that are worse than Roosters so expect the squaking to wake you pretty early everyday. They also require a 500.00 deposit on your card which they say you get credit back . Next time I am in Juneau I will definitely pick another option for a place to stay.

If you're planning to stay here...DON'T. It's dirty, dark and housekeeping doesn't exist. It's in a questionable area of town....you won't feel safe if you come in if it's late at night. Use a trip planning service to get a better rate at a better hotel.
