My regular stop
The Puffin Inn has become my first choice when flying in and out of Anchorage, especially when coming in on a red eye. The staff has always been great, they're very helpful. The location has proven to be perfectly fine for my needs when I'm up in Anchorage (rental car locations near by, a few restaurant options, near the airport). It is probably not a good location if you're a tourist hoping to walk to any of the sites, but if you have a vehicle then it's just fine. I've stayed there a handful of times and I recommend them to friends and family regularly. I've stayed in hotels all over the mid-west, the west coast and Europe, for the price and locale it's an excellent choice. This is not a 5-star resort, but it is a comfortable room with a good bed which gets me a sound night of sleep, and that's all I really need from a hotel. I do wish they would expand their breakfast options a bit. I'd even consider paying a bit more for something other than bagels or waffles.

i like staying at the puffin inn
I was in a section of the hotel I have never been in before. The entrance door was all beat up on the inside back door with a bunch of scuff marks from shoes beating on it. Please clean that up. Made me feel second rate from the main bldg. I feel when I book thru hotel .com I get treated different. I like the Puffin inn too.

Business stay at the Puffin
I have stayed at the Puffin numerous times. It tends to be a good value choice hotel for Anchorage. For my most recent stay, I experienced a problem with my room after the first night. After I brought the issue up, the staff promptly notified the manager, Chico, who examined the issue and immediately addressed the problem and moved me to a different room. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and the way he handled the situation. I will continue to stay at the Puffin in the future because of Chico's professionalism and the way the staff handled my problem.

Great for the price
The bed was made up but very messily made. It was also hard as a rock, which I love but if my wife were with me than that would be a complaint. Bathroom amenities are bare. A small bar of soap and bottle of shampoo were it. It’s a budget motel so I wasn’t expecting much and it served it purpose wonderfully for me.
