We picked the Driftwood because it seemed within our budget (good price for the downtown Juneau area) and conveniently located for our needs (10 to 15 minute walk to downtown area with restaurants, both terminals, shops, tourist attractions). Please know that this is not a fancy hotel. The walls are cinderblock (in some places covered with a painted textured layer,...

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of room and service at the Driftwood. We were especially grateful for the shuttle service. The driver was so polite and accommodating. The location was a shirt walk to downtown, to the bus terminal, to a great restaurant for breakfast. Would highly recommend!

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. This isn't the nicest hotel, but the staff was friendly, the proximity to downtown is great (especially so you can avoid parking downtown), and the price was decent. My complaints are the loud metal stairs can get annoying, and the TV gets zero signal reception. It was unusable.

Pleasant experience overall. Started with the hotel shuttle picking me up from the airport and the driver was super friendly. Staff in the office at check in was friendly and the room was clean, and spacious. Nice location in downtown Juneau with a good restaurant next door called the Sand Pipers which offers awesome breakfast. Its a basic hotel offering...

The Driftwood is a very comfortable place to stay. Rooms are spacious and clean with a large comfy bed and huge television. The kitchen is a bonus, my wife was unwell while here so we stayed in and cooked for our three nights. An excellent supermarket is a short stroll away as is a bottle shop and the excellent Juneau...

They need to eliminate the 2 parallel parking spaces so people can not sit in there vehicle smoking with the engine running next to your room. They need to monitor after hours partying in the rooms, no noise after 11:00PM. Some people have to get up and work.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for letting us know about some of the issues you experienced during your stay with us. I always appreciate hearing from guests about areas where we could improve. I'm sorry to hear people were smoking and leaving their cars running so close to your room. That's incredibly inconsiderate and something we will have to pay...

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.
