Very Clean, nice hotel with nice sized rooms and a spectacular view. Bishops Beach is right below the property and is very nice for strolls on the beach, lots of driftwood for making fires. Saw eagles everywhere, especially along the rocks at low tide. Convenient location, several places to eat within walking distance and the Homer Trolley picks up nearby... More

Needed a motel for one night as getting on plane to Anchorage next morning. Reserved handicapped room sight unseen from Missouri. Pleasantly surprised. Arrived late, notified office, they were so kind as to wait until 11pm for us. The room was very clean, indeed truly a handicapped accessible, were in the terrace part, and even from there the view in... More

The view is what sells this property. It is cute, but dated. As Homer goes this is a clean nice little accommodation. Nothing to elaborate, but nice. Bishops beach is right at the property and is very nice for strolls on the beach. One fun thing about Homer there are eagles everywhere. There is a small fridge in the room,... More

Rooms are minimal in furnishings, but very clean with good quality linens. The beds are comfortable with white linen bed spreads. Something I like a lot, nice to know there is no camouflage of cleanliness! Excellent view of ocean with cozy semi-private porch. Foot trail down to beach is nice, but could be a bit challenging for someone with stability... More

Don't let the prison camp exterior fool you; the rooms are well kept, fairly modern, and situated on a beautiful beach convenient to all of Homer. No A/C, no screens in Windows, no blackout shades. Had to look past the junk car and sea of RVs to the inlet. Went next door to the RV supply store for coffee the... More

We were very disappointed with our stay. Good view and that's the only good thing I have to say about this older motel. We were on the ocean front building, any of the other buildings would suck. Absolutely no insulation between rooms. You could hear everything in the adjacent rooms. The place really needs updating or just bulldozing. If you... More

We (three adults) stayed at Ocean Shores for two nights in June. The room was clean and simple. OS is a motel -- not a luxury hotel -- so there aren't amenities. Décor and colors are outdated but functional. Your grandmother would love this place. Be aware that an ocean/water view isn't the same as oceanfront. We could see the... More

From our room, the view was amazing...mountains and the ocean from our walk out patio. The staff was very friendly and prompt, our room was very clean and comfortable. But, for the price, not as nice as some of the other places we stayed in ak. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room along with instant coffee. No... More

We stayed at this hotel while on a GATE1 tour. This is a great hotel. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but all the rooms have fabulous views! The rooms themselves are nicely furnished with frigs and microwaves, and very clean. The owners were so accommodating, not only allowing us to have a bonfire on the beach, but... More

This is a well maintained reasonably priced property in a beautiful Alaskan setting in the Halibut Capitol of the World situated on the hillside coming down into Homer, with a 75+ mile view from your private deck of the Barren Islands 1/2 way to Kodiak to the West and Halibut Cove to the East with huge snow covered mountains, the...
