We stay in a lot of Best Westerns in our travels, both in the US and in Europe. If there is no elevator, we request a down-stairs room. Even tho’ we do not have a problem climbing stairs, and we do this for exercise, our backs are not good with lugging a 50-lb suitcase up the stairs. When I made... More

This is one of the few places to stay in Homer. It's a convenient walk to downtown, the museum and tourist office. The rooms are adequate and clean, and the front desk staff were helpful. The full breakfast was very good and came with the room. We needed to send our kayaking rain and camping gear back home and a... More

This is a typical Best Western kind of place. We were traveling with five and got three queen beds which you can't find much anymore. The room was a little warm but they had a fan which helped. It was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was above average. Recommended.

This was a clean and well situated hotel for our 3 night visit. My only complaint is that the room is darkly lit. And even with the small portable fan that is supplied in the room, it is still quite warm. We've been to Homer many times before and choices are limited if you want a larger hotel feel. We... More

The hotel was clean, good beds, nice and varied free breakfast, and friendly efficient staff. Price was o.k., but this is Alaska in the summer. I left a couple of fishing shirts and a pullover, called the hotel, they found them in a drawer, they mailed the items to my house. They arrived two days after I returned home. I... More

Room was well equipped. We had 2 queen beds and frig and microwave. Nice to keep bottled water cold. However we were in the motel unit that was separate from the main and we had to go the the main one to get the ice. They have a really good heater for the bathroom and the shower had plenty of...

I have stayed here numerous times for fishing in Homer. The hotel is clean and efficient with both Laundry facilities to clean the fishing clothes along with Prepping, packaging and freezing of fish. There is a restaurant / bar on the property which I only visited for a drink. Kind of a rustic local hangout for realxing

Nice property, clean and well kept, very good rate, AND it included free WIFI and a free hot buffet breakfast which was a very pleasant surprise in Alaska! I wish all Best Western properties were this good.

Rooms and beds were good. Property was well kept. We stayed for 3 nights and it was an enjoyable stay. Just wish they would have made our beds each day, but other than that we would stay here again. Where you have your free breakfast overlooks the water and is stunning. One of the better free breakfasts I have ever... More

We stayed here two nights on either side of a camping/kayaking and cabin trip, in July. The location was actually quite good - walking distance from Pioneer Ave where you'll find restaurants, the Pratt Museum and other interesting places. It's also walking distance to the Two Sisters Bakery - highly recommended for dinner. I'd rather stay here than the Homer... More
