Great value!!
We were 4 of us and everything was organised seamlessly from the airport arrivals and departure transfers to check in and check out and breakfast. If you’re looking for simple clean accommodation close to the airport then this is great

Puffin Inn of Anchorage - Great Place
First choice of a great place to stay while in Anchorage. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfast choices, reliable shuttle service from airport.

another win
Every time I’ve stayed at the Puffin has been good. It’s not a fancy place but It’s comfortable. everything always works, well stocked, and staff are always pleasant. As long as the rates stay reasonable, I’ll continue to choose the Puffin.

Not bad
Pros - Easy check in, comfortable bed, updated room and nice towels. Cons - No shampoo, noisy stay in annex/roadside, and water backwards on shower.

Nothing but the basics - just what I wanted!
The staff at the Puffin Inn were friendly, helpful, and informative. I stayed twice - for one night on each side of a trip outside. Shuttle service was top notch. Both times I stayed in the 'Annex'. The first room was clean and cozy. Everything worked, though there wasn't a deadbolt or security latch on the door. The second room was also clean and cozy, but much noisier - I could hear the hallway and rooms above loudly! The fan in the room did not work. Even though it was the room next to the other one, it felt much older and worn. It was a great place to stay to be near the airport. A no-frills hotel - just the way I like them!
