“Average hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is a moderate category hotel by Alaska standards. Don't expect luxury, but it is acceptable. The restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday, we were there on a Sunday night, so no review for it other than the complimentary buffet breakfast and it was good.

Room Tip: Our room was quite small. It faced the highway but wasn't noisy. There is no air conditioning.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

I was pleased with my interaction with the staff both on the phone when making a reservation and at check in. Our adult daughter went up to the cafe for take out food, and the staff there were also personable and helpful, she said. Alaskans take pride in friendliness, and the team here seems to have that same pride.

Our rooms were clean with the usual amenities, but I was unimpressed with building care and maintenance, and some housekeeping details. The lodge is currently looking for housekeepers at this very busiest time of year, and that may explain some deficiencies.

I wouldn't object to staying here again if other accommodation was unavailable. However, i will try elsewhere next time because the good nature of the staff wasn't enough to outweigh the slightly sour taste in my mouth due to the negatives above.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the Beluga Lake Lodge in Homer, AK. Reviews I had previously read and customer submit photos did not indicate the motel to be highly recommended. More recent reviews however did say the place was okay so I decided to give it a try. The rooms appeared to have been recently renovated with new carpet, ceramic tile floors in the bathroom and new furniture. The room was very clean and quite and the bed was very comfortable. Showers were hot with adequate shampoos and soaps provided along with a hair dryer. The continental breakfast was not extensive but sufficient. Staff was very friendly. I had a little trouble with the internet connection but was told that it had been recently updated and was not compatible with older operating systems on laptops and ipads. This is not the Ritz-Carleton but a very good value for the quality. I would highly recommend this motel for your next stay in Homer

Stayed here for two nights. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms look like they were newly remodeled and the entire room was very clean. Rooms are on the small side, but have everything you need (medium sized fridge and microwave). The restaurant upstairs has really good burgers with good prices. Both winter and summer rates looked to be very good. Get an upstairs room for a little better view.

Loved this place . New owners have remodeled. It is impeccably clean and comfortable. No breakfast, pool or gym- but you are right near the Homer Spit with all sorts of things to see, do and eat. I much preferred a comfortable room at a reasonable price and spend my money on what I want rather than Hotel Amenities that I do not use

Lovely property, very centrally located to all attractions in Homer. Clean, comfortable, quiet and friendly place with great coffee. Laundry facilities on site, also a pet friendly location and a great restaurant upstairs that makes a "damned good burger"

Room Tip: Rooms upfront (under restaurant are a little noisy) but bigger and have great views. The restaurant...

We were very pleased with everything at the Beluga Lake Lodge. Very pleasant staff, delightful comfortable and clean-clean room with basic older decor, great mattresses, quite, affordable. If you are a snob, this is not for you. We were excited to have found it. Quite the find!
