It is not much to look at. If you are looking for a luxury hotel, look somewhere else, but if you are looking for a hotel that is clean, with a very large room, a magnificent view and a very friendly and helpful staff, this is the place. You definitely want to get a room with a view. Waking up... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one night here. We stayed in the middle section of property where we were still able to see the ocean and mountains. It was a little pricy for what we got. We did enjoy to working heater and little balcony. The only thing that we did not like was that the walls were paper thin... More

I needed a hotel to stay in one specific night, but this was the only one that had availability. I really liked the price, but I can see why is was so low in cost. Seems as though it has not been updated in a very long time, I didn't even feel comfortable crawling into bed under the blankets and... More

Here's a spoiler alert: There is no Ritz Carlton in Homer. Homer is a simple charming little town in Alaska and Ocean Shores is a no nonsense hotel with a great location. Restaurants, coffee shops and bars on the main drag are in walking distance. Clean rooms, good wifi (free thank you, which you won't find at the Ritz). I... More

The view from all the rooms is fantastic. All rooms face the water and the units are tiered so that each room has the view. The balconies/porches were great-could have spent all afternoon on mine. The room was clean and had all the amenities needed. The staff was friendly. Rates were reasonable. Highly recommend.

We stayed at the Ocean Shores for 4th of July weekend. We had a kitchenette in our room, which was very convenient since we have a 7 month old. The place was clean and very charming! I love that it has its own private beach . The views from the hotel are amazing.

I just returned from a vacation in Alaska. During our trip we visited Homer, Alaska and were fortunate enough to stay at Ocean Shores. This motel is located on Katchemak Bay. Our room was in the second building up the hill from the shore. Just down the rocky beach from the hotel was a tree with an eagles nest. The... More

The highlight of our Alaskan vacation was our time in Homer and we were not disappointed with Ocean Shores. The motel is clean, quiet and the view is amazing. For a little extra, get a ocean view room. (you will not be disappointed). I would definately return to Homer and Ocean Shores.

These are nice hotel units with a great view of the water. The units are adjoined, but felt private. Clean, pleasant, non-smoking rooms. The fridge and microwave were nice because local restaurants tend to close around 10. There was Wi-Fi, TV and cable, but we spent most of our time outside.

The best thing about the Ocean Shores is its location -- best in Homer with an unobstructed view of the inlet and mountains in the distance, topped with snow. We sat in our room gazing thru the large window, on the balcony or on the bluff. The eagle's nest tending her chiclets present in a tree near by. When we... More
