The only drawback to this hotel is the lack of shuttle service to and from the Juneau airport. This service is offered by other hotels in Juneau but not the Prospector. Taxi charges amounted to unplanned/additional charges. Also for those staying after a fishing trip, you will need to make specific arrangments for a freezer as they are not normally ready to accomodate this need.
This hotel is clean, comfortable and staffed with helpful personnel. Our room was nicely and recently decorated with a view of Mount Juneau and a waterfall. I am surprised by the poor reviews I had read and am glad I ignored them. The location is perfect, near restaurants and museums. There was a big closet to store all our gear out of sight. This is an historic hotel with intact original decoration in the lobby and restaurant.
We have stayed at this hotel many times, the customer service there varies greatly. Some of the employees are very helpful and some of them are exceedingly rude and almost contemptous if you ask a simple question.
The room we stayed in was the bottom floor 2 doubles room - and it was very clean and comfortable, especially the bed - beyond what I expected. The innkeepers are very accommodating and generous with information. We chose not to rent a car which meant a 30 minute walk along the water and a busy roadway to and from downtown Juneau - but this was entirely our choice and we were grateful for the exercise. Taxis are available and we did arrange for them when the weather was bad. Continental breakfast included is ok and as expected - a muffin or a bagel (you have to choose), OJ, coffee. Wifi is available but limited to a small area in the apartment. Only real complaint is the shower is really tiny and the water temperature somewhat variable. Overall I would highly recommend it. It was much quieter and I expect much nicer than many of the downtown Juneau options, and far away from the cruise boat traffic and tourists.

We stayed for 6 days in late spring. Our room was on the 3rd floor - bridge side. The traffic noise did not bother us. We were in the main building and there is an elevator - important for us because of our age. The staff is very friendly and professional, room very clean and comfortable. We had a kitchen with stove, refrigerator, dish washer, washer and dryer. Separate bedroom with 2 queen size beds and TV , plus the living area with another TV.
