First and most important - Bed was perfect for sleeping! Water pressure in the shower was good, room was a tad outdated. I never knew which dial to touch to adjust the temp, Felt safe and secure, but property was poorly maintained to ensure a above average feeling of security. For Gods sake sake, clean up the property!!!!! Make it... More

Stayed 2 nights. Our room was very hot. They had a fan but we were above the bar, kitchen and this may have made the room warm. They had a small fan which helped but had to open the window anyway. Kinda noisy. Our friends had their room exchanged and all was fine for them. The rooms are clean with... More

We were glad to find this accommodation after a failed reservation elsewhere. It was clean, comfortable, roomy. Had a small laundry facility which we needed! Breakfast room lovely view and basic food. Friendly and helpful front desk. We will come back.

We had plenty of hot water and soft bath towels. We stayed warm at bedtime; the thermostat was functional. The exterior of the hotel... More

First the good - good location, our room was quiet and had plenty of room, and there was plenty of hot water in the shower. However, when we first opened the door, the room smelled old and musty despite being in the newer annex. The bathroom was adequate, but smelled moldy/mildewy. We used a full bottle of Febreeze over a... More

We thought it was expensive to spend almost $200 per night in Homer but it was Labor Day weekend and this is a popular fishing town. The room was clean and spacious with a coffee maker with good coffee, refrigerator, and microwave. There is a dispenser for shampoo, soap and conditioner in the shower. I don't really care for that... More

This hotel is just o.k. as far as a Best Western goes. After reading prior reviews I can not recommend this hotel for families with children unless the smoking policy for the property is changed and have a difficult time describing the rooms as "spacious" or "very clean". Plus it is overpriced and frequented by fishermen, construction crews and bus... More

We started out reserving two nights at Homer, but had such a good time and great quarters we stayed an additional two nights. The BW was a great place to stay. Very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend it and will return if we are in Alaska again.

Good hotel with high but fair prices for Alaska in Summer. Excellent location. Comfortable and clean rooms. Decent breakfast and breakfast room. Recommended for couples and families. Homer is a lovely and picturesque town with many attractions in area.
