The property is more of a motel style accommodation, but it's centrally located and has great views with convenient access to the ocean shore. We had a room directly overlooking the ocean, so we enjoyed the spectacular views days/nights. Rooms are no frills and basic, but clean and tidy. There's WiFi but it is barely working - not enough coverage... More

One of the nicest lodgings I have ever experienced. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Beds very comfortable with first-class linens and pillows. Grounds are neat and well manicured. The owner is proud of his establishment, and rightly so. Personnel are first-class and very cordial and helpful. This is the place to stay in Homer.

My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid-September and it was one of the only hotels that was open/available. The price was very reasonable. The views from our room of Kachemak Bay were spectacular. The hotel is not fancy but the room was clean and had a fridge. The heat worked well. It was an easy 15... More

We have quiet a drive from Anchorage to Homer, but stopped many times along the way. The scenery in this road is awesome, just a few miles from Anchorage is a very scenic drive till in Kenai Peninsula. And then the view change dramatically when we took the road to Homer. We know that Homer is a harbour town, this... More

I stayed here for three nights on my recent Alaska trip. Checking in and out was simple and the folks at the desk were very helpful. The room itself, while dated, was clean and spacious. I was in the second building so my view of the bay was over the roof of another building but since I didn't spend that... More

This a nice place to stay. It is right on the ocean with deck and glacial view. It is clean and well maintained with good tv and web access. The price was reasonable. The rooms are nice in a simple kind of way. Add the deck and ocean access it was worth the cost and a good stay.

It looks funky from the outside but the Ocean Shores has quite an ocean view. The rooms are basic but immaculately clean and everything works. Nearby restaurants are easily walkable. Highly recommended if you visit Homer.

The owners are very friendly and helpful and put us in a beautiful room with a great view. Only wish the weather was clearer, the view was over the bay with mountains and a glacier in the background. There is a path down to the beach can't wait to explore. Worst thing is we only have one day.

My daughter and I just arrived a day ago and are really happy with the place. The managers worked to give us the best possible room with an amazing view of the bat and mountains. A double and a queen bed with a view on two sides, a frig and microwave and sink in the room. Nothing fancy, but clean,... More

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...
