We stayed one night before joining Alaska Dream Cruises. There is not a lot to choose from in Juneau, but we picked the Driftwood Lodge based on other tripadvisor reviews. It is a bit on the tired side, but was clean, the location was great for access to downtown Juneau. The people at the front desk were very friendly and accomodating. I didn't use the wifi much, but don't recall a problem and the beds were quite comfortable. It was quiet at night and we didn't have any complaints. It does have a nice view of the mountains from the balcony and it is near lots of stores and restaurants. If I was to be in Juneau for more than one night, I would look at some of the nice lodges and Band B's that are further from town. Juneau is a great place and I wish we would have had a bit more time there.

The driftwood is a good choice for a short stay in Juneau. It is about six blocks from the madness at the docks and only two blocks from the State museum. It shares a parking lot with the Sandpiper Cafe. Overall the rooms are old but serviceable. There was no A/C (wonder why) so one window is constantly open to allow for ventilation. Everything worked and the office staff was friendly. I chose the Driftwood because the shuttle service is reliable and useful at odd hours.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a larger room with a small kitchen and went next door to the A&P for orange juice and snacks.

Motel style facility with exterior doors on three levels without elevator. Our family of four stayed in a two bedroom with kitchenette. Nothing great but not bad. Bed is only ok at best. Small bathroom and small kitchen area. Front room is adequate. It was great to be in Juneau for three days and two nights and the Driftwood is very affordable. Nice staff. Great shuttle bus service to and from the airport saved us lots of $. Breakfast cafe in same parking area was good but expensive. Grocery store is half a block away for kitchenette items, sandwiches, breakfast foods, great coffee and more. Keep your expectations realistic and use the Driftwood to explore the interesting elements of Juneau (glacier, whale watching, fishing, strolling downtown).

Room Tip: Second floor by the stairs.

Well located, clean, and very friendly. No fridge or microwave in the room (available in the lobby) and the wifi is so weak it may as well not exist. Shuttles to the airport and ferry are very convenient. Pleasant walk to anything in downtown Juneau.

This motel has a lot going for it, except for the rooms themselves. We choose it because of the price, so we got what we paid for. The motel is very dated & our room (3rd floor) was in pretty poor condition. The bed & bedlinen were tired & not very clean which was a turnoff. The motel has long-term renters & some of them are less than friendly. There was a fight in the room next door & it seemed as if they were coming through the wall - very scarey!
However the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location of the motel is within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. The best restaurant for breakfast is right next door as well.

Room Tip: The walls are paper thin, so top floor (3rd) corner room would be best I think.
