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

The staff is friendly, the views fantastic. The bald eagles flying around were spectacular. The location is close to anything there is to do in Homer. The room was cozy, the bed comfortable, the shower relaxing with good water pressure. Next time I am in Homer, I intend to stay there again.

This Hotel was a clean and comfortable. Had a great view of the Ocean. My niece and I just wanted to spend a night close to the ocean since we are landlocked and do not get to see this kind of sight. Very nice lady at the reception desk and our room was large and roomy. Took the path to... More

We stayed here as a family in late may. The view from our room was amazing and the room had plenty of room for four of us. We would love to stay here again. The front set of rooms is worth the price. Very nice.

We stayed here for one night after a camping trip. We had the lower building, ground floor and the view was spectacular. There was a gorgeous lawn for our kiddo to play and a short path to the ocean. The building has a no-frills exterior, but the room was very nice - ours was top-notch clean and had a great... More

Ocean Shores is locally owned, and awesome! Location right on the water with unbelievably gorgeous views. Be sure to ask for ocean view room, rustic yes, but oh so very Alaskan. These folks are nice - with service above and beyond expected, We had the wheelchair accessible room, perfectly done for someone in a manual wheelchair.

We had a full ocean view room at the Ocean Shores. The room was clean and large. The shower head didn't look like much but it sure had the pressure. Not a lot of fancy shampoo and amenities but that's not a priority for us. The balcony offered a great place to sit and take in the fantastic view. The... More

Stayed on the set of motel rooms closest to water, and views from room (large windows) and open deck outside were spectacular. It's also a very quiet place, off the main drag, high up on a hill above the water/beach away from the fishing crowds. Large rooms, in-room coffee, microwave, frigerator. Comfortable beds. Our only complaint was slow/intermittent internet. Also,... More
