It ain't fancy but it's priced good, is clean and the staff is super. I would recommend it. It feels safe and comfy and the location is good. It's pet friendly and has a shuttle to the airport. There are some fast food places within walking distance.

I needed a cheap hotel near the airport so I can rest my head after my flight landed at Anchorage. This place fit the bill. The lobby is well lit, with high ceilings and some Alaskan tokens. The rooms are a little drab but are adequate for a good night of sleep.

This place absolutely ROBBED US!!! My wife left a wedding gift necklace in room 1130 and when we called the next morning to ask about it the lady said she would ask the maid who of course claimed she didn’t see it even though my wife new exactly the time and place she left it (visibly on the counter).. we ended up calling back on our way back through the area to see if we could potentially check the room ourselves and before I could even get out the sentence the supervising manager on shift (evening of Jan 21, 2020) started yelling at me on the phone lying by claiming we kept changing the room numbers on her so she could just hang up on me and would not even stop talking for a second and then she hung up on me.. worst hotel experience I’ve ever even heard of.. highly DO NOT RECOMMEND this place. These people are rude and most likely this place has criminals working for it. Police will be notified shortly.

Made a booking through a 3rd party website, tried to cancel within 30 seconds because I accidentely selected the wrong date. 3rd party claims only the hotel can cancel the booking. I called the hotel, and they claim only 3rd party site can cancel the booking. I notify the hotel service that the 3rd party told me the opposite. She immediately raises her tone then changes her story claiming that she can't do anything for me because i booked the reservation under someone else's name. Looks like i'll be eating the cost. Worst service ever. All this over a lousy $63 room. Stay away.

I ended up having to grab a room in Anchorage for the night while I waited for other people to arrive. I chose Puffin Inn because it was close enough to the airport and was an affordable room for just me. It was a cute place with friendly staff. It is not a beautiful place and the room was small, but I expected that for the price. It worked well for a last minute booking for the night. I actually stayed here in August/September 2017 time. There was a small continental breakfast offered in the morning.
