I thought I would save money and request the room in the back - big mistake! The cheaper rooms felt like they were in an alley at the back of the main building. And yes, all I had to do was walk down the hill to enjoy the view but it wasnt the same. The room was clean but pretty... More

Let's start with the fact that in Homer, there are limited lodging choices. If you're looking for luxury, keep looking. That being said, think of this place as a very nice motor lodge with great big rooms and the most amazing views ever. And with each room having either a patio or balcony, you can enjoy those views inside or... More

Stayed in one of the rooms overlooking the water- beautiful view, great room. Clean, comfortable and affordable. 2 minute walk to the beach! (Remember Alaska beaches are rocky until the tide goes out.) Watched eagles, seagulls, sun rise & sunset.

The view of the bay is great, but would be spectacular if we did not have to look over the roof of the first row of rooms. The room itself was basic, roomy and clean. Free Wifi and a new flat screen TV were welcome additions, but the window blind still did not block out the sun. This seems like... More

After touring Alaska for three weeks we needed a peaceful, beautiful place to recoup before returning home. The young girl at reception could not have been nicer. She suggested restaurants, gave us hours of their operation and even tried to help us book a bear tour when ours was cancelled. She was so nice and the place appeared so beautiful... More

This was our last hotel before our cruise started. Could have spent more time here! The views from the rooms are beautiful. The rooms are basic but clean. Homer was a great place to visit - some great restaurants!

The street view can be deceiving. The view can't be beat of the bay. Just a few steps away and you were at the water's edge. The room was very spacious and seemed to be recently updated. It even had a small microwave and fridge which was great for a late night snack of microwave popcorn.

This is a very nice and convenient place to spend a few days enjoying the wonders of Homer, AK. It is simple yet comfortable and very convenient. I know that they plan to add a restaurant in the near future. I have stayed here three times and recommend it highly.

This motel is probably the best that I saw out of the available hotels/motels in Homer. The view is fantastic and the staff was very friendly, you can walk to the beach in about 1 minute. I went towards the end of the holiday season (end of summer).
