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.

For the price the stay was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. The property has three buildings, and the main one looks nice and modern. I stayed in the smallest building, furthest from the lobby -- I suspect it was another small motel at
one point that Puffin Inn bought out. The room was tiny, and though the bedding and furniture was clean, the carpets were in pretty bad shape. The staff was competent, but nothing special, and the complimentary breakfast was definitely not that appealing. It's a clean place to crash, but not a memory maker, for sure.
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The traffic on the adjacent main street was detoured for repairs to the road. The detour took heavy traffic adjacent to the building in which I was staying. Honking horns, loud music and motorcycle pipes all
day and night. The person that checked me in only checked me in for one night. When I returned to the building, I could not get back in. I had to go to the desk where the clerk told me that I had only been check in for one night. She immediately rectified the error. The building that I satyed in was detached from the main building with an apartment building in between. Tenants used cardboard for curtains and old bed sheets. It was not a very savory neighborhood. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!! The only redeeming quality was it was relatively close to the airport.
