I've been staying at this hotel for over thirty years. This is the only place I would stay in Homer, Alaska. Has the amenities of the big city at the little town at the end of the road.... Not far from the harbor, and convenient to good restaurants...

Very close to hotel - 10 Minutes in the shuttle. Clean, warm, fitness center, hot tub, good buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. restaurants, pizza across the parking lot. Perfect for the night before an early flight.

This Best Western in Homer was clean and the staff friendly. It was relatively inexpensive and had a comfortable bed and reliable WIFY Internet Service. I don't care for Best Western's reservation policies or being charged for services I didn't receive so I am less happy with this chain of hotels then anything about this specific hotel.

We stayed at this joke of a motel for two nights the first weekend of February. At first sight it looked like it would be an ok place to stay, but looks are very deceiving. This place has a bar attached to it where some very weird locals hang out, so you have a bunch of drunks roaming the property... More

Nice hotel great staff would stay there any time I am in the area! Everything was better than expected. The breakfast was far better than I expect and better than most Best Western hotels. If you are in the area a great place to stay and was reasonable in comparison.

It was fine. They put us in a corner room with a pretty decent view. But it was just above the Otter Room Bar. We couldn't open the windows because people were smoking and talking on the deck outside, and the smell of grease from the kitchen was nearly unbearable. We were only there 2 nights so no point moving.... More

A very nice, very clean room. Excellent front desk staff, and a nice breakfast buffet upstairs in the morning. Great dinner at the Otter Room. Absolutely no complaints. This was my second stay in Homer, and was much better than Beluga Lake Lodge, in every aspect.

The main problem was the noise, even though folks weren't noisy. I could hear folks in adjacent rooms & walking outside. The heat was hard to regulate & when I opened the window to cool off(there's no air conditioning) the window crank broke.
