We wanted a room with a view, and every room at Ocean Shores looks out over the water and incredible layers of magnificent mountains. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and we enjoyed hours sitting on our private deck mesmerized by the view. There is a path to the beach, and it is a perfect beach for long walks. The... More

We stayed one night here whilst driving around Alaska. The apartments are spacious and clean. It was possible to view the ocean over the top of a wooden fence and trees. The kitchen set up was a bit strange as it had a work surface, microwave, but no cutlery or other kitchen tools. It was fine for one night. When... More

We went to this hotel with the YMT group. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the inside is very nice. The room was spacious with a small kitchen area, 2 beds, TV, table and chairs. There is a nice deck off the back and the view is spectacular. We stayed 2 nights and it was wonderful. The... More

Ocean Shores is an average hotel. It is pretty outdated, especially the bathrooms, but it was clean. The price is pretty steep but the views are exceptional. The view is certainly the best part of the hotel but the balconies have one chair and a bench that aren't at all comfortable to sit in for any length of time. If... More

Spent three nights in Homer and stayed here because of the view. Requested waterfront but didn't get that. Don't know why, the place wasn't busy. Ask for a coffee maker at the office, otherwise you will have awful coffee from "tea bags" in the microwave. Although the room was spacious and very clean, the mattresses were like granite. When we... More

We stayed 2 nights in July and it is an old property that once renovated has great potential. Basic spacious rooms, clean but tired with a kitchenette. Wifi was spotty but functional. I normally do not like writing average reviews but I hope that the management reads this and pulls up its socks as for the quality of what you... More

We had just one night in Homer and found this hotel at a reasonable price (for Alaska!). When we pulled up we were surprised and disappointed to see that it was a row of prefabs along the cliff and another row behind it. Ours was the second row. The room itself was sufficient for a night and had facilities for... More

Upgraded my mom, just because! The owner is such a nice guy who painstakingly maintains the grounds and facilities! The rooms are very neat and clean and all of the furniture is in great shape. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Homer.

There are so many good things to say about the Ocean Shores. My room was spotless and had everything I needed. The grounds and buildings were perfectly maintained, and the staff members were friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is perfect for a visitor with no car; it is close to many restaurants and shops, making the beautiful walk around... More

After reading a few reviews, I had higher expectations. Our room was in the back row, too close to the road, but the view from the second story was magnificent. It was missing several things I consider to be standard in a motel room....no brewed coffee was made available. There were some cups and instant mix (not coffee in my... More
