⭐⭐⭐ The Prospector Hotel ($156 per night for extended stay)
The Prospector Hotel has spacious rooms with nice views over the waterfront. Amenities include mini fridges, microwaves, private balconies, coffee makers, and free WiFi. There is a restaurant and a sports pub on its premises, but some reviewers have found the food sub-par. The reception staff is well spoken of, while cleanliness levels could be improved. The hotel’s Alaskan design is neat, but a bit dated. The Prospector Hotel is located a good 10 minutes walk from Downtown Juneau. Overall, this hotel would be okay to stay at for a couple of days, but for a more extended stay in Juneau, AK, it may not be the best option.
🌟🌟🌟🌟Frontier Suites Hotel ($65 per night for extended stay)
The Frontier Suites Hotel in Juneau would be another excellent choice for your extended stay in Juneau. This hotel is also close to the airport, but not as close as to hear the planes landing.

⭐⭐ Alaskan Hotel ($80 per night for extended stay)
“Have you ever visited a museum and wished you lived there?” is one review of the Alaskan Hotel. The city’s oldest hotel, built in 1913, distinguishes itself with some extra Alaskan character, and a genuine Victorian architectural style, preserving its historical authenticity. Some would say however that the hotel is more run-down than antique, and cleanliness levels may not be up modern-day standards. Rooms are available both with private and shared bathrooms, but all rooms are quite small and you might encounter problems sleeping because of the thin walls. There is a Victorian-style bar on the first floor, which often features live music. This can definitely be fun, especially on weekends. But for an extended stay in Juneau, it will get real noisy real fast.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Westmark Baranof Hotel ($159 per night for extended stay)
The Westmark Baranof Hotel offers a more sophisticated vibe in Juneau, AK. The hotel provides a fitness center, a casual cafe, a cocktail lounge, and a fine-dining restaurant which serves a decent Northwestern menu. All rooms feature free WiFi, flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers. Some rooms are also equipped with mini fridges and microwaves (no real refrigerators or cookstoves). The studio suites have kitchenettes. The hotel does not welcome any pets. Located downtown, the Westmark Baranof Hotel is close to the cruise ship docks, Juneau’s waterfront, boutique shopping, and restaurants. Expect to pay top dollar for your extended stay here.
⭐⭐ The Driftwood Hotel ($135 per night for extended stay)
The Driftwood Hotel is adequate at best. Located downtown, this hotel is close to the city’s cultural attractions. Rooms vary, starting with casual, individually decorated rooms, to full suites. But do not expect much. As users report on TripAdvisor and other review sites, rooms are tiny and often dirty, staff is rude, and amenities are spotty (both shower pressure and water temperature will vary depending on how many people are taking showers in the hotel at the same time). All rooms have free WiFi and coffee makers. It is also pet-friendly, for a $200 deposit and $15 for each day on top of the deposit, you can have your pet with you. The hotel also has two on-site restaurants and a 24 hour shuttle service to the airport or ferry terminal. Some rooms have a nice view of the Gastineau Channel. Overall, taking into consideration the price-quality ratio at this hotel, we would recommend looking elsewhere.
⭐⭐ Extended Stay America ($124 per night for extended stay)
This hotel chain offers longer stays by definition. The one bedroom suites are equipped with a kitchen, and should be equipped with all necessities. Reviews say that this rarely happens however. The price for the extended stay at this hotel drops to $94 depending on the duration of the stay, but for the first day you will still be charged $124. The location of the hotel near the airport can be convenient if you work there or have frequent flights in and out of Juneau. Extended Stay America provides its guests with a fitness centre, pet-friendly accommodation (expect to pay $750+tax extra per month, per pet!), and free breakfast.

The hotel also offers free shuttles to the Ferry Terminal and the Airport (which you won’t be needing since it’s within walking distance). According to recent reviews on Expedia and TripAdvisor, customer service is lacking, rooms are often not equipped with the bare necessities, cleanliness is lacking, and even bed bugs have been spotted at the Extended Stay America in Juneau, AK. You may consider looking elsewhere for your extended stay in Juneau.
