My mother and I stayed here and we loved the place. The owner and "Taco", the welcoming cat were very accomodating and friendly. The view was excellent and the rooms were very clean. The location was close to everything. We would definately recommend this place.

This little in is located on a bluff with just the most incredible view! We were here mid summer and the view early in the mornings to late at night was just amazing. It was great to just sit out and stare at the ocean and the passing cruise liners. Price was great too. Rooms themselves are tiny but not... More

There are many newer places to stay in Homer, but none have a better view of Cook Inlet. Bay View Inn sits high on the hill. Our room was small and crowded, yet very clean, and the beds were fine. A portable electric heater is the only heat source. The shower is small, but works well. Wifi is free. There... More

a real dump cramped quarters, internet wouldn't work; breakfast in open outdoor area with temperatures in the 50's. Nice view but there is nothing else to recommend it. It is priced like it is modern motel, but it's just a old worn out dump.,

I can say nothing good about this place - except Fantastic View. The rest was attrocious. Rooms were more like workers huts with 2 very old beds squashed into one tiny room. Small space heater and crappy TV. Bathroom was tiny & old. The breakfast is served in the open in an open sided bungalow, no fridge and bare basic... More

We unfortunately stayed at this motel in Homer. Looking at the ads, it looked pleasant enough, but they were misleading. The view is incredible, but this old run down motel has a musty smell inside the super cramped rooms, with old ugly brown 1950 era metal cabinets in the kitchenette with a vintage metal shower. The super tiny tv had... More

Well, the best thing about this place is the view. The property is one of the first things you get to on your way into Homer. We stayed in two rooms in the main building. My brother and I shared a two bed room and my parents had a one bed room with a kitchenette. Our room was small and... More
