5 Reasons The Frontier Suites Is One Of Juneau’s Best Hotels

Choosing the right hotel can make or break your vacation in Juneau. Sure, you’re here for the spectacular scenery, but a lumpy bed, an unappetizing meal, a nail-biting ride to the airport, or a grumpy desk clerk can cast a shadow over an otherwise dream getaway.

But if you choose to stay at the Frontier Suites Hotel, an all-suite hotel in Juneau, you won’t have to worry. U.S. News and World Reports includes the newly-renovated hotel on its list of best hotels in Juneau, and Trip Advisor ranks it No. 12 Best Value of 50 places to stay in Juneau.

“I always stay at Frontier Suites in Juneau when I can. They have full kitchens and are in a good location. I’ve stayed there for close to 10 years and have never had a problem. This is not a chain hotel, and it has an Alaskan flair.” – Bob W. on Trip Advisor

“Amazingly comfortable. Knowledgeable staff and very accommodating services. Can’t wait to visit again!” – Dawn on Trip Advisor

“The room was everything a traveler or family needs. Washer/Dryer, Kitchen, Living Room, Shuttle to and from Airport, Decor of the region. Great staff, A+++++” – murray7777 on Trip Advisor

“I went to Juneau to kayak and camp on nearby Admiralty Island. The hotel gave me a ride to my put-in at Auk Bay and let me store my baggage at the hotel. At the end of the week, I kayaked back to Auk Bay, called them, and they brought my bags to me, helped me pack, then took me to the hotel. They even carried my bags to my room for me and took me to the airport the next morning. When they found out I was a veteran, they wouldn’t accept any of my tips! These guys are great, and I’ll be staying there again this year when I kayak Baronf Island.- Pat Garrett on Trip Advisor

The hotel is conveniently located less than a mile from Juneau International Airport and offers complimentary rides to the airport and the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry Terminal.

“Nice, clean property very close to the airport. Our flight didn’t land till 10:30 p.m., but they made sure their shuttle was able to pick us up even though it was very close to the 11 p.m. shut off time after we deplaned and got our bags. The shuttle driver was super friendly and made great suggestions for dining and things to do. The room was clean and large. Comfy beds and pillows. Overall, it was a great value for the money.” – A verified traveler from S.C. on Expedia.

“It felt like home, as it was spacious, quiet, comfortable. Staff were very helpful. It was great, best of the Juneau hotels!!!” – A verified traveler on Expedia.

“I’ve had an excellent stay at the Frontier Suites. I’ve read some of the other reviews here, and they are simply not true (or over the top exaggerated). Linens were new, spotless! My bed was comfortable and just the right size. The bathroom was nice and clean. The manager was super friendly and went out of his way to make my stay more than worth the money. The location is great. Several restaurants within walking distance. There was zero noise in my room. Nothing to complain about and will stay here again!” – Daniel T. from the Netherlands on Trip Advisor.

They have full kitchens, so we were able to save money and cook our dinner, breakfast, and lunch right in our room! Our bed was so comfortable I never wanted to leave.
