What could be more important than a concerned staff. We were only there one night but the staff made a lasting impression. We will go again to Homer and we will stay at the Ocean Shores! Oh, and by the way the private deck and front row seat to a beautiful Alaskan bay didn't hurt either. I left a personal... More

My fiance and I stayed here for just under a week. There was a beautiful view of the bay and the hotel staff and owner were amazing - recommending restaurants and other things to do. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Alaska!!

Our rooms were a little less than we expected, although the kids loved the balcony and big lawn to get out and run on after the car ride. They were just a bit dated, but we had stayed in a newer hotel the night before. I was acceptably clean and the guy at the front was nice. And the beds... More

One of the most important things for us to hear is that our guests were comfortable in our rooms. It's nice to know you had such a good nights sleep, we do have clean welcoming rooms. I'm sorry your parking spot was taken by someone else, we try to help out in this regard as much as we can. Thank... More

Beautiful location, perfect spot in Homer. Great view, and great service from everybody we encountered. Did I mention great view? The best, clean, a great place, will be here again on our next trip to Homer. Mark and Ronda

The rooms where quite large, two double beds, shower with bathtub (after being on a cruise ship for a week with a tiny shower this is like luxury). Stayed two nights in Sept, so husband could fish. Stayed in the oceanview ( not oceanfront) rooms. They were fine, who stays in their room anyway?! The short walk down to the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love Homer and are always happy when someone has a great time in our town. I want you to know that we are in the process of modernizing our rooms. Our first step is to install flat screen TV's. We have more things planned throughout the summer. More

We had an oceanview room with outside balcony just yards from the beach from where we could watch the bald eagles. The rooms are clean and comfortable although not the last word in luxury. Its position is its main advantage and if you value a beach front room, you will enjoy it here. I would very happily stay here again.... More

This was a pleasant place, but nothing special. Rooms were clean, but could use some updating. The view is good, but we did not get a front room...leaving the view average at best. Just another average hotel in Alaska without king beds.

I realize this is not a five-star hotel. Just understand you can hear everything above you and next to you. Tripadvisor should consider adding a noise rating. Housekeeping pretty sloppy - they merely lifted bed cover back over disheveled pillows (just like this bachelor does at home).

First of all, if you stay here go for the beachfront room otherwise your experience will be unacceptable for sure. The view will distract you from looking to the rest of the room and that’s a shame, especially when you take the rate under consideration. Charging US$200 a night for a classic roadside motel room reasonable clean with cheap furniture... More

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights here. Yes, it is overpriced. The view is great. No king beds. After not having a room with a TV or decent sized shower in our 2 week Alaska vacation, these features were much appreciated. Office and cleaning staff were very nice and helpful.
