Looks a little spare and Motel-6ish from the outside--but the rooms have windows that overlook Kachemak Bay and the Aleuts--outodoor decks. Amazing views. There is a rock on the beach on which perches a regal bald eagle--just for your viewing pleasure. There is a VERY STEEP trail leading down to the beach--can walk to the Ocean and Islands Center on...

Stayed here in August 2015 and had a wonderful time. The view from the deck was beautiful (if you choose beachfront, it is impossible to have a bad view) and the room was very clean and Alaska - themed. Close to the fishing docks and all the great spots on the Homer Spit. Also, we were lucky enough to see... More

This little motel is a gem. It's located on a bluff overlooking beautiful Katchemak Bay in Homer, Alaska. I'm an Alaskan so it's hard to impress me but this view is amazing. The rooms are basic and dated but you won't find a cleaner room in Homer. Each room has a private patio where you can sit and watch the... More

Being from Alaska I often plan trips on the spur of the moment and Homer is one of my favorite destinations. Ocean Shores was able to accommodate us on a pretty busy weekend with just a bit of notice at a very reasonable price. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable and had a fantastic view as well a a really... More

Visited Homer in July 2015 with my parents and daughter. We were all blown away by the view from our balcony at this clean, comfortable hotel. Great location, clean, comfortable rooms and great owners. Needed a plunger after 10 pm and the owner was in the office, friendly and quite helpful. We had a wonderful time in Homer and hope...

We stayed here for one night as part of our cruise tour. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Our room overlooked sea and had fantastic views. It was nice to be able to just sit outside and watch the sea, or take the short walk down to the beach to spend some time there.

The room was decent. Everything was clean, beds were comfortable, never used the TV but it looked good. The blinds succeeded in keeping out the light to aid with sleeping. The view is amazing, but that's the only amazing thing about this place. The wifi was next to impossible to use, even though we were given 2 separate logins to... More

Stayed over the 4th of July weekend and had a great stay. The motel is not fancy, but it is reasonably priced and super clean. The motel staff is very friendly and is always anxious to accommodate any request.

Located within walking distance of "Old Town" this reasonably priced motel has all amenities you'd find in those higher priced hotels! Free Wi-Fi, refrigerator, microwave, comfortable beds and beach access. Don't judge a book by it's cover because once inside these unique rooms, all with views, you begin to feel the ambiance of Homer. These rooms are all decorated with... More

The woman who ran the front desk was very helpful on where to eat, what to do, and an eagles nest with two eaglets. Yes, the motel is aged, if you recall vacations with your parents with KEYS to lock and unlock the door (not swipe cards) and the walls are a little thin so if you have noisy neighbors...... More
