It may well be bc I was traveling with my dogs I did not experience the best of rooms. However, the room should not stink like dog odor saturated in "lets cover it up spray." I was there for a job interview// R&R. The people staying next to me appeared to have been there awhile. It was noisy at night,... More

Good location. Walking distance to the beach, downtown, and visitor's center. Clean, serviceable rooms. Good sized bathroom. Quiet in the indoor rooms. Friendly staff. Decent breakfast included. Good coffee in the front room.

We just spent 3 nights at this property. Nothing fancy...but very comfortable and clean rooms. The people great. (Huge thanks to John and Justin who blessed our stay.) One of the best free breakfasts we've ever seen at a motel. Price was good...about $85/night.

This Best Western is slightly better than the average Best Western but still falls short of more modern well appointed hotels like Aspen, Marriott or IHG brands. Given the limited options in Homer though it was nice enough and the hot breakfast was a nice touch. The hfront desk staff was very friendly and helpful which is what made this... More

I advise to avoiding the ground floor rooms if possible. My problem one night @ 9:30-10 p.m. was a bar partron warming his diesel truck virtually right in front of my door for over a half hour. Noisy and smelly. A call to the Otter Room went unanswered. A call to the front desk was answered, she promised to look... More

I have always stay at a Best Western and never have I had a bad experience. Very good service, good prices, and clean rooms. You cannot go wrong with this hotel. They always try to accommodate your needs.

When we needed someplace close to our conference area, that is easily accessible, and able to accommodate our team, we chose the Bidarka Inn. Glad we did. Top manager with excellent local knowledge and perspectives that were very helpful. Facilities are excellent, rooms are private, very clean and most importantly - quiet and restful.

Rest of property and service? Not so much. To begin with, we were assigned a room that was already occupied (apparently by a long-term resident). We thought error this was inexcusable. Then, the receptionist couldn't encode our new key cards; after many tries, the encoder had to be re-booted. All of this took the better part of an hour to... More

I didn't expect to need a room in Homer, but my friend in Seldovia told me that this is where she always stays. Likewise, my brother-in-law, who lived and worked in Alaska for 19 years, recommended it. The staff at the Inn were especially helpful to me as I was traveling alone. Breakfast exceeded my expectations, and I slept very... More

BIdarka Inn is an excellent place to stay when in Homer. Clean, quiet and secure with stunning vistas if you're looking for a place with a view. Our team used a meeting room that was easy to set up, well known by the people we wanted to meet with and provided with ready support from the Inn staff.
