    Exceptional

    Stayed in the "extra unit" which was a little roomier. I liked that. Have stayed there before. The carpet is a little stained, otherwise all was very good. Shuttle service was outstanding and I really like the new van. I plan to stay there again my next time in Anchorage.

    nothing was bad.

    Exceptional

    Above expectations. I had read several comments from other people that had stayed and they said that the back building was not good. Since we had not read these before the main building was filled we were forced to stay in the back building. We found it very nice and we had no problems with the room we were given. I would stay here again and would probably request the main building to see if it is any better, but I would be very happy to stay in the rear building if no rooms are available in the main building.

    Stronger odor in the room from cleaning products, but I would rather have this than the alternative.

    Price was right. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Staff very friendly. Location of the layover on our flight from Salt Lake to Kenai was nice. Van to and from ANC was handy.

    Fabulous

    The young woman at the front desk was very professional and most helpful. In fact, I meant to tell how much i appreciated her work and efforts. Also, bed was comfortable and access to airport and ski trails was excellent.

    Stains on floor at around toilet were a turnoff. They were not permanent.

    Very good

    The staff was very pleasant. We were provided van service to the airport to drop off our rental car and also van service to the airport to catch an early flight. The breakfast was ready at an early hour, tasty and well prepared.

    I didn't like my stay at the Puffin Inn. There was possible drug dealing going on in the room above ours. Lots of young voices of people coming and going into the wee hours with lots of noise. Other guests also heard these noises. There should either be a patrol or an onsite security to regularly monitor the grounds and the persons staying in the rooms This needs to be taken care of for the safety of your guests.

    Near airport, price not too high, helpful staff, WiFi, breakfast

    The window in my room #1208 would not lock (mechanism not adjusted properly) thus I could not reduce the jet noises as a crack opening remained. Get maintenance on it. Otherwise good experience.

    Fabulous

    I only stayed one night. Got in late and left early. Did not utilize any of the services just slept and went.

    I tried to print my boarding pass at the business center but the computer was sooooo slow and eventually had to leave for my meeting. Did not get the boarding pass printed.

    It worked well for us close to airport and the shuttle pick up was quick

    It was a fair way into city central but the public bus was fine just outside door. If they run a shuttle this would work in there favour
