Clean rooms, friendly staff and a good rate for Alaska. Good comp breakfast with waffles. If we go again to Anchorage, we will stay again... More

We stayed in room 1110. It was spacious and comfortable. The two queen beds provided space to stretch out. The room has a separate living/kitchenette area. The Puffin Inn is very close to the airport which enables quick access to airlines and rental cars via the hotel's 24 hour shuttle service. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

we stayed here for a quick halt in a tight schedule. The place is clean and the price was the lowest on expedia. free airport pick up helps too. location is perfect as its close to the airport. I didn't find anything explicitly wrong. Just fits your budget and expectations.

room small, bed confortable, little old, breakfast poor, very fast check in and good service at the counter, works for somebody that need something fast or a place to sleep over, but no too high expectations.

Found two pieces of hair on bed. Old decor and dirty carpet. Requested a room further from the road to avoid noise but were told those cost extra (they do have the rooms). Noisy due to the proximity to road. Would not recommend to anybody.

We were looking for a place to stay for one night before leaving Anchorage and this hotel was clean, conveniently located near the airport, and exactly what we needed for the price we paid. Continental breakfast was okay, which again, was perfect for us to get a quick bite and get on the road. Staff was SUPER polite and nice,... More

The hotel is close to the airport. The rooms are nice and clean. It was a little overpriced, lots of road noise, cars, bikes. We stayed in the annex, no elevator, had to lug our suitcases of two sets of stairs.

We needed to upgrade our rooms. The assigned rooms were old, in ill repair, musty smelling and plain not acceptable. The new rooms in the main building were fine. The location is excellent and most of the staff is very friendly. The breakfast consists of sweet rolls, cereal, canned fruit and oatmeal. The original oatmeal was out and they could... More

Only a few minutes from the airport. Very helpful staff. Rooms in main part of hotel large and comfortable. Free continental breakfast typically cheap and not that cheerful. Other eating places are within a few minutes walk. Only downside is noise from Sea Planes but not really an issue.
