Overnight Stay

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Close to airport & reasonably priced.
My husband & I needed a place to stay close to the airport in Anchorage as we had an early flight the next morning. The Puffin Inn was both close and reasonably priced. The place was clean and the woman on duty at the front desk was helpful. Our request for a 4AM ride to the airport was not a problem.

Will not be staying there again.

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: The lobby was pretty.
Cons: Updating and cleaning the rooms. Soap should always be available.
Our room was not even attached to the main inn. We had to walk about half a block to find the building with our room. The room itself was tiny and not very clean. No soap was provided. We then had to walk back to the main lobby to catch a shuttle to the airport at 4:30 am. We felt very unsafe.

It served it's purpose

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Service
We were only staying one night, then moving on, so I guess putting us in the annex was OK. I think it's a leased building or a new acquisition, but it needs some work done. There pick up service is excellent, since our flight had problems and we were later than anticipated, they were there to pick us up promptly.

Solid hotel

Nothing fancy, but also solid. Breakfast was typical, morning staff was bright and cheerful and the room was in good shape. Comfortable bed.

Friendly folks

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, clean room, good breakfast - coffee was good. Price was reasonable.
Cons: My preference is for a firmer mattress, but it was not bad.
Location: We enjoyed delicious pie for dessert at the nearby Village Inn.
Friendly staff, very helpful. Clean room and accommodations. Bed was a little soft for my liking, but I prefer a very firm mattress. We were original given a first floor room, but we asked for a top floor room. This was done for us withou hesitation, and we appreciated the cooperation; unfortunately, this then put us right at a busy intersection where we heard a lot of traffic noise until it quieted down. We do not blame the staff however, as they had done what we had asked. Breakfast was good, nothing special, but filling. Eating area was clean and neat. We requested a shuttle to return a rental car and then again in the morning to go to the airport. Again, super friendly assistance all around. Would recommend the Puffin Inn to others.
