Really nasty lobby picture is not the reality! A review of Puffin Inn
This hotel was not all all what it appeared to be from the nice lobby picture. I wish I'd seen the previous review before we reserved this.
We paid $100 for this room. First when we were picked up by the shuttle from the airport the van was really old and dirty, the lobby when we arrived to check in was nice so I thought it would be okay.
Unfortunately our room was in the building next door. It was like one of those scenes from a horror movie. The room was the smallest I've seen, it was dirty and smelly, the bed had an old old mattress and the blankets and sheets just felt gross and unclean. Our room was right next to a busy street so we could hear loud traffic all night, and people talking as well with the thin walls. It was something you'd pay maybe $25 for in most places. If you are flying in late and only are spending a few hours there it might be worth saving the money you'll spend at most hotels in Anchorage but probably not. I would definitely not stay there again.
