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

Accommodations themselves were decent (beds were comfortable, everything in working order), but this property offers no view of the beautiful countryside in Homer. Our ground-level room window opened to the parking lot, causing considerable disturbance when people walked by or cars arrived or departed.

Let's be honest. The rooms are ok, but the breakfast is pretty much like that in a typical Days Inn. Why none of the chain motels can figure out that scrambled eggs out of a box just are not real tasty is beyond me. It is not that hard to fix eggs from scratch, especially when you have multiple breakfast... More

Stayed one night while on a land tour. Hotel was excellent, large rooms, very clean and a great breakfast. Staff was very nice. I would highly recommend this hotel and don't understand the bad reviews. It is certainly not a 5* hotel but I don't believe you will find one in Homer. I would def. stay here again.

This was our first trip to Alaska and Homer and would highly recommend this hotel It is easy to find and the staff is second to none! Friendly, courteous and so willing to make our stay comfortable is an understatement.

This Best Western hotel is right on the west end of town and is close to anything you could want to do while staying. It is dated, but rooms are nice enough and bathrooms are nice. Good hair dryer and comfortable beds. Complimentary breakfast was a treat with windows all around to see the spit and bay. Work-out facilities were... More
