Just off Homer's Main Street, the first impression of the Driftwood Inn is somewhat down-at-heel. A rather tired-looking clapboard building, nestled against an RV park. Once inside, however, the welcome is warm and accommodating, and our unit (24) was a revelation. The unit is a room within a larger building, which has a spacious shared (between about 5 rooms) living area and kitchen, which leads out to a grassy backyard and an awesome view over the bay and surrounding mountains. The units are well cared for, and a fully functioning CharBroil grill in the backyard and chess set in the living room are nice touches. Our family of 4 felt pampered.

Room Tip: Try to get a bay view.

We stayed in the Historic Inn (as others have pointed out there is also a RV park and the lodges). Many of the rooms don't have bathrooms and share two bathrooms in the hallway. Our room did have a bathroom, though quite possibly one of the smallest bathrooms I've ever been in. Our room (#1 I believe) had two beds and was one the corner so had two windows, though not overlooking the bay. The room was quite clean and the staff was very nice. However, having blackout curtains would definitely be nice during the summer. On the other hand, the rooms don't have AC (which isn't particularly unusual for the area) and so opening the windows to get some air is needed if it gets really hot (which it did while we were there).

Anywhere else this would probably be a two or three star review. However, the price was good (for Alaska) and its probably the best of what I saw in Homer, so I'm sticking with 4 stars. Being a short walk from Two Sisters Bakery as well as the bay certainly doesn't hurt.

Room Tip: Check the room description to make sure your room has a bathroom if that's important to you.

My family and I stayed at the Driftwood Inn at the "Historic" location. We waited until the last minute to get reservations and we mostly needed a nice clean room to sleep during the time we visited Homer. We went to Homer to take in all of its' beauty and fun things to do. We did not go to experience the "hotel" room. After calling multiple places, we found this location and could not have been happier. The room was CLEAN and quaint. Yes, it was small and with two sets of bunk beds it felt like a camp; but you have to remember we waited until the last minute. The personnel went out of their way to help in any manner possible. The view (outside of our room) was great, there was a nice place to catch dinner across the street, and it was off the main road so it was quiet. For the person concerned about no "black out curtains," buy an eye mask with the elastic in the back. It would help. Alaska caters to its' visitors as we thoroughly enjoy sharing our "Post Card" surroundings. There is nothing like it and I personally wish everyone could visit at least once. However, we also spend nine months a year in the dark. When summer arrives, we are ready for light and it doesn't bother us. We NEED it! So when in Alaska, try to do as the Alaskans do! We enjoy it! We hope you do as well!

When you book a hotel from a picture it sometimes looks great but then you get there & you wonder just what you are going to find inside. We drove up front & just sat looking at the place. It looked like it had had better days. We went in asked if we could see the rooms. The lady at the desk guided us to a very LARGE house over looking the water. What a SURPRISE it was lovely. Water & mountain view, so beautiful we hated to leave. We had a common room/kitchen where we could sit around & visit with other guests. Great place to sit & have a cup of tea or coffee & relax. Would reccomend if you are in the Homer area.

Room Tip: Choose the house instead of the lodge, they are lovely.

We were totally happy with place. Rooms were spacious and generously furnished with large baths sink microwave cooler and high end coffee maker. front desk staff were very warm and helpful.

The view from our room (and most others) was of the water and mountains on the other side. Sunsets were amazingly beautiful.

This place was quiet and comfortable and very conveniently located. A winner.

Room Tip: Get a room in the building to the West of the office building.
