I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel for a business trip. It was one of three suggestions, and just slightly cheaper than the Goldrush downtown (which I heard good things about later.) I was lulled by their claim to be "One of Juneau's newest hotels."
After staying there, I wonder if it is a new hotel because it was previously a minimum-security prison or nursing home? Nothing looked new. The inside of my room reminded me of my Aunt Barbara's house before she got into collecting those creepy dolls. There were cigarette burns in the linoleum in this nonsmoking room. The decoration scheme appeared to be "random empty baskets." The Breck shampoo and plain bar soap did not scream "amenities for the business traveler," unless of course you're assuming that a business traveler is a man, and the kind of man who doesn't care about grooming.
On a positive note, the bed was very comfortable.
My room was missing the following "luxury" amenities: a dead bolt, air conditioning, a do not disturb hanger, and curtains. There was only a battered paper shade to block out the "midnight sun." My key card didn't work consistently, which the staff blamed on me for probably putting them too near my cell phone. The "free high-speed internet" is not wireless, despite the AT&T store located inside the hotel. I returned to my room one night to find the door hanging wide open, probably all day after the maid service. I spoke to the desk about it, and they did not seem concerned.
The hotel is not close to anything if you don't have a car, so if you forget your contact solution, you might find yourself directed to walk down a highway at 10:30 pm to the dingy Superbear grocery store.
