I stayed 3 nights at Pioneer while on a Bear Viewing Excursion. From booking, to the stay, and my departure, I found everything perfect for my needs. Amy Fetterhoff does a superb job. Details: Booking and Arrival: My booking was done via email after a brief phone call to ask questions. The deposit terms and cancellation policy were very generous... More

We loved this place. It was quite, comfortable and has everything we needed. The owners are very friendly and great hosts. Location was short walking distance to coffee shops for breakfast and some places for dinner, and a short drive to the scenic homer spit. We had a great stay and no regrets.

We enjoyed our stay at Pioneer Inn. the owners worked with us since we were arriving late on the ferry and we were able to walk right into our room. The room is small, but every thing you need is there. The owners were very friendly and we had a nice short visit when we checked out. Will stay here... More

Ok so you're not checking into the Marriott or even the Red Roof Inn so let's set expectaions. For $120 or so it's 'Alaska Cheap'. Our room was very basic with a door opening directly onto the parking lot. 2 steps into the room and you're on the bed. Not spacious but who stays inside? Everything is small: the desk,... More

The Pioneer Inn has everything I could wish for as a traveler - kitchen, living room, and a king-size bed. The view is spectacular and the location ideal (no, it is not on the water, and there are plenty of properties to choose from in that category, but they cost 2-3 times as much). There are several coffee shops nearby... More

We stayed at the Pioneer Inn only one night, but we would definitely stay there again. We stayed in the C room and we had a beautiful view of the mountains. It was clean and quiet. This was a great place to stay.

Awesome place! Had a kitchenette, was very roomy, everything worked well, super-cool owners and had the "Cute factor"! Yes, it's a little old, but not run down at all and it was a very pleasurable stay. It was close to everything and was clean quiet and very reasonable! I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Homer... More
