I had no problem with the room itself. The room was clean and modern. The beds were comfy. The room was a little too warm. The free breakfast was a definite plus with lots of breakfast choices. The first night of our stay was fine. The real problem was the second night. We were awakened at 1 a.m. by a very LOUD drunk man who was screaming and ranting at the top of his lungs. He was cursing constantly and making threats to another person (perhaps on the phone as I didn't hear anyone yelling back at him). His angry tirade went on for 3 hours! He was sounding very threatening and sounded like he could be violent, so I called the front desk. They said the only thing they could do was to call and ask him to be quiet, but I had to make sure which room it was coming from first. I asked if they had security or anyone the front desk could call to check on what was going on, as it sounded like it could be dangerous. They said there was no one, but if I was sure which room, she would call them. I told them that someone needed to check on the violent drunk man, as I felt the police may need to be called (the drunk man was making threats). They said I could call the police if I wanted to. It was in the middle of the night, and I didn't want to wake my son up to find the local police phone number. I really feel that management should have been called and actions been taken for the safety of the surrounding room. This man was beyond drunk and was ranting and making threats for 3 hours! I was nervous for my safety and the safety of those in the surrounding rooms. I think the front desk may have called the room, because after a few curse words and ranting, the guy finally calmed down (or perhaps passed out). It was really crazy! I think Best Western should improve their handling of drunks and dangerous people on their grounds. I felt hotel staff should have taken some effort to get an employee out to assess the situation instead of leaving it in the hands of other customers.

Thank you for staying with us. I am sorry to hear another guest caused a problem for you and your family. The desk clerk that night did contact the problem guest. He said he was very sorry for causing a disturbance and he would calm down. It does sound like that is what happened. Our policy is to first contact the guest in question and try to resolve the problem. If that does not work we call the police to come and assist with the situation. We have a very good relationship with the police department and response is timely when we have needed them. Again I am sorry another guest disturbed your time us and hope you will consider us for your next visit to Homer.

If your on the Kenai Peninsula this hotel is a good choice. nice large rooms with coffee and all the ammonites. A free breakfast coupon worth $ 15.00 to use at the restaurant on the premises . I like a 2nd floor (top floor) room. nice and quite, no elevator good exercise. Ask for manager special rate.

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...

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.
