The hotel was fairly nice. I didn't like the fact that the entrance door was to the outside instead of inside a building. It was clean and the bed was good. Sort of a dark room with window looking out at the back of peoples backyards. Could hear the people above me. It was a place to sleep for a... More

Noisy place to stay. Close to the highway and can hear people talking downstair in the parking lot. Also the work they are doing cause more noisy and sure uncomfortable stay. Bad location. Terrible smell. Terrible water. All just wrong.

When my request to stay an additional night was confirmed, no one told me that the key cards had to be rekeyed. Upon returning to the room later that day, I was locked out. The office attendant said she should have told me at the time of booking, but no note or phone message was left to inform me. Dogs... More

Friendly staff upgraded our room when she saw we had a reservation over the bar. Ended up with a large, quiet room, parking just outside the door. One of the best free breakfast rooms offered, lots of windows over looking town and the bay, and great choice of real food. Easy to find location on main drag coming into Homer,... More

Great room and breakfast. Beautiful view of the mountains from the hotel restaurant/breakfast seating area. Staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely consider Bidarka Inn next time I visit Homer, Alaska.

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
