We stayed at the Driftwood 2 years in a row for 2 weeks each time. It is a no frills place, located just a couple of blocks from the heart of downtown Juneau. It is not fancy, but is only a short walk from other downtown hotels. It has an excellent breakfastlunch restaurant on the premises, The Sandpiper, which is a top flight restaurant in any city.
Most hotels in Alaska are not plush, and the Driftwood is no exception. But it has spacious rooms, nice kitchenettes, and free van service. It is a great place to stay if you want to get around the Juneau area and see the sites. We did a lot of hiking and nature sightseeing, and some trails are fairly short walks (1/4 to 1/2 mile) from the hotel. The guests are not all tourists; some are on business of one sort or another, but typically trades business and not suit and tie business.
The Driftwood is near some social service agencies, so you sometimes see the people being served by those agencies on the streets, but we never experienced any problems with them, and found them to be good and interesting company.
