Lucas, Texas
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Puffin Inn is near the Anchorage Airport and is convenient for travel to Alaska, particularly as an overnight stop for trips into the interior. It is comfortable and clean and relatively modestly priced for Alaska. Overall, it is nothing special but would stay again if the opportunity arose.

First let me say my room was not in the Puffin Inn, but in an annex building operated by the Puffin in called Comfort Suites. The building and room were dingy. The walls are in desperate need of being painted, the carpet was gross and old. The room had been sprayed heavily with Lysol I had to run the bathroom...

Our room was in the main building upstairs from the reception desk, and there WAS an elevator. Room was large enough, and was clean. Was pricey, but so is every place else to stay in Alaska. No complaints. Woman at front desk was friendly and helpful. Printed out directions for me to Wal-Mart when I told her I left home...

My room was in the original building which is only accessible by narrow stairs - difficult to climb and manage a heavy suitcase.

Stayed one night in the hotel . They gave us a room which was already occupied and later changed to a new room . The process was not pleasant . Room felt more like a motel room .location is good and near the airport . Still an average stay little on the expensive side .

DON'T STAY THIS HOTEL, especially if you are Asian!! I stayed this hotel and this was the worst one I've ever stayed. There are three reasons.

I really enjoyed the bubble bath after my 15h trip on the plane!!! The carpet was a bit dirty and room was ok. It was noisy I needed earplugs to sleep but I slept well. Breakfast was ok, simple but ok. Thanks!
