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.

Our two week vacation to alaska every year includes a 2 day stay in Homer for a charter fishing trip with two nights dinning and shopping on the Homer Spit. The Bidarka Inn is conviently located to the Harbor and restraunts and includes breakfast and the cost is resonable .We have stayed at several bed and breakfast with a good... More

Great Stay No Problems, Room were clean and comfortable. Great place to base a fishing trip out of, only caution I would offer is that there is no elevator so if you have anyone in your party that has issues with stairs you will want to request a first floor room.

Downstairs the view is mostly blocked by vegetation, but this is a motel, folks, not a Hyatt. And a very good motel it is, with extremely friendly staff, a hot breakfast with a good variety of foods and a comfortable bed in a clean, pleasant room with some kitchen facilities. Breakfast is on the 2nd floor, with very good views... More

We stayed at this hotel on July 19th. We were supposed to go halibut fishing on the 20th, but our charter was cancelled due to weather (high wind and waves). Since we couldn't fish on the 20th, we had nothing else to do in Homer so they allowed us to check out a day early without penalty. This hotel is... More

Thank you for staying with us. Most of our rooms do not offer a view. I hope, though, that the weather was nice enough that you were able to get out and enjoy all the sights and sounds that our beautiful countryside has to offer. More
