When we needed someplace close to our conference area, that is easily accessible, and able to accommodate our team, we chose the Bidarka Inn. Glad we did. Top manager with excellent local knowledge and perspectives that were very helpful. Facilities are excellent, rooms are private, very clean and most importantly - quiet and restful.

Rest of property and service? Not so much. To begin with, we were assigned a room that was already occupied (apparently by a long-term resident). We thought error this was inexcusable. Then, the receptionist couldn't encode our new key cards; after many tries, the encoder had to be re-booted. All of this took the better part of an hour to... More

I didn't expect to need a room in Homer, but my friend in Seldovia told me that this is where she always stays. Likewise, my brother-in-law, who lived and worked in Alaska for 19 years, recommended it. The staff at the Inn were especially helpful to me as I was traveling alone. Breakfast exceeded my expectations, and I slept very... More

BIdarka Inn is an excellent place to stay when in Homer. Clean, quiet and secure with stunning vistas if you're looking for a place with a view. Our team used a meeting room that was easy to set up, well known by the people we wanted to meet with and provided with ready support from the Inn staff.

Yes indeed the only part of the motel´s name that can be justified is WESTERN, as Homer surely is west of the Old World. But to the point - we stayed at the aforementioned establisment in the second week of September for two nights. Upon arrival, we felt like we were an inconvenience for the receptionist, in fact we felt... More

This is a great place to stay when visiting Homer, AK. It was very clean and comfortable, the staff was excellent and the breakfast was wonderful. Location was good to access the town and what it had to offer.

At registration, the clerk had the type of room I requested ready. It was helpful to have a microwave & refrigerator in the room. The location was easily found as I entered Homer. Although just off the highway, it was private enough to walk the dog and feel safe even after dark. The breakfast was very good and in a... More

First and most important - Bed was perfect for sleeping! Water pressure in the shower was good, room was a tad outdated. I never knew which dial to touch to adjust the temp, Felt safe and secure, but property was poorly maintained to ensure a above average feeling of security. For Gods sake sake, clean up the property!!!!! Make it... More

Stayed 2 nights. Our room was very hot. They had a fan but we were above the bar, kitchen and this may have made the room warm. They had a small fan which helped but had to open the window anyway. Kinda noisy. Our friends had their room exchanged and all was fine for them. The rooms are clean with... More
