I have stayed here two times, and was happy with my experience on both occasions. The view is wonderful, the rooms are clean, staff is friendly. The rates, of course vary according to the season, but were competitive and reasonable. The only downside was the front office kept banker's hours--and the in room coffee maker needed to be requested the... More

Built on the banks of Katchamak Bay, this hotel is set up more like a traditional motel with separate buildings for different rooms. We didn't know what to expect when we booked here. The facility is definitely not fancy, but it was comfortable and quiet.

This was a nice surprise - roomy and very clean. Very well kept. Fridge and microwave in the room. Ground level balcony - our room was on the hill and had a 'partial view' of the ocean which we loved - room 51. The staff are very friendly and kind. We loved this hotel and will return!

My husband and I toured Alaska in July with some friends and spent three days in Homer. We could not have been happier with our accommodations at Ocean Shores. We had an ocean view room with a balcony, and our friends had the room next to us. The hotel was full, but we still found it to be peaceful and... More

The hotel is o.k. It is more like a motel. The beds at comfortable and the location near the waterfront is excellent. The lobby is away from the main buildings and there is no internet or wifi, which I find unusual in today's hotels or any where for that matter. I god a room with a PARTIAL view - that... More

These are simple rooms - didn't have black out shades.. but the rooms were clean and comfortable. I would definitely return and recommend to friends needing a night in Homer. Wi-Fi was a bit iffy. Ask for one of the lower levels - will have a better view of the Bay.

Hotel had a great location and wonderful views. Some drawbacks.... The exterior was very basic looking but the room was clean and a decent size. Walls were also very thin so be prepared to here noise from the outside. Nice Alaskan hotel and would definitely recommended it. Owner were helpful.

I have stayed at Ocean Shores several times over the last ten years. I live in Alaska and am excited to take family visitors there. The view from the rooms are unrivaled looking out over white topped mountains across the wide ocean. The rooms are clean and each room reflects a unique part of Alaskana. BUT my all time favorite...

I recommend rooms 15 through 18. The view of the glaciers and Kachemak Bay from the balcony is amazing! The room was large, nice and clean. It had a wet bar with a microwave and a mini fridge. The "teabag" coffee was a little weak, but the coffee at the convenience store down the street was good. The front desk... More

Well maintained, very clean comfortable room. The view was awesome. We had a upper room in the building that is close to the water. We had a deck with chairs to relax. Great wireless connections to catch up in the evenings. I would stay again. There is room to roam for the kids, great food and drink very close. This... More
