Overview

The Puffin Inn is conveniently located near the Ted Steven's International Airport and Lake Hood and just 10 minutes from downtown Anchorage, shopping and the Anchorage Railroad. It's still just a short drive from scenic Alaska and all of its natural beauty. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Puffin Inn has 4 distinct room styles to perfectly suit your needs. By request of many of our guest, the Puffin Inn is now a completely non-smoking hotel. Plus, new in 2006, all our rooms have air conditioning. Our deluxe section, built in 2001, has spacious, attractively appointed rooms with many comfortable features. Offering a unique blend of comfort and privacy, the Chandler Inn, which houses our boutique style rooms, is a small, completely separate building ?? block from the Puffin Inn. The moderate section building was built in 1984 and remodeled in the spring of 2002. These spacious rooms have exterior entrances making them ideal for hunters, fishermen or families with a lot of gear. While much older and smaller, our original section rooms are a bargain for the budget traveler. Newly remodeled in 2006 with new beds, furnishings, linens and carpet, these rooms are ideal when just a bed will do. Independently owned and operated, the Puffin Inn?s dedicated owner, management and staff have been serving the needs of visitors to Alaska for over 20 years. Near the Airport and Lake Hood - minutes from downtown Anchorage.

Came a day early before catching an Alaskan cruise. Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Beautiful country with pleasant accommodations. Close location to airport and shuttle transport to pier. We would use again if we go back to Anchorage.

Hotel is conveniently located near the airport. Room was a bit dated but comfortable. Bathroom was very dated but water pressure an temperatures were more than adequate. Beds were comfortable and clean. It is a good bargain for an overnight stay.

Older part of motel

Would recommend Sun, Jul 20, 2014
We booked a good time in advance of our visit, and asked for an accessible room. While the room was on the first floor, it was in the older part of the motel. The age of the room was evident, although it was clean. Since we only stayed for one night, we didn't choose to upgrade.

Dont expect anything but cheap

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 21, 2013
Pick-up from airport was disappointing -shuttle was a no show after 20 minutes--called back and was told the driver was loading fish in the freezer and hadn't left yet. So took about 40 minutes waiting at the curb to get picked up. Staff was rude and unfriendly. I could go on an on this one but will summarize -- we would avoid this hotel ever again just based on how were not welcomed or acknowledged by the driver and front desk staff. Our room was relatively clean but the trash can had dirty candy wrappers in it--if you reserve a room DO NOT book the OLD section--the closet has been turned into a shower / toilet and the sink is in the bedroom! Bedding cover was odd--100% nylon. On a positive note the AC worked great.

Cheap accommodation near the airport

Would recommend Tue, Jul 10, 2012
That's basically it. They have an airport shuttle and continental breakfast. Needless to say, its somewhat scruffy, but given what you pay- its a fairly average motel.
