“Basic but good location”
Reviewed June 19, 2007

The Heritage is a basic but clean hotel, well located for several nearby restaurants and as a base for the area. The town of Homer is very spread out with two distinct areas; the "downtown" area and The Spit. From the Heritage, it is a five minute drive to The Spit but you are best located here in the downtown area where the better restaurants can be found and there is less of a gimmicky touristy feel.

Compared to other hotels we have stayed at in the USA, the Heritage is very basic and dated. After several days in Alaska, we realised that we should stop comparing the wonderful state with the lower 48. Things just generally are more basic and you pay more for what you get. Therefore, we were pleased overall with the hotel here as I think this is probably one of the best in Homer.

Cozy little hotel/lodge in the middle of downtown Homer. Cafe next door serves an amazing omelette. The hotel is a little dated and showing some wear(original building is from the 1940's), but everything was clean and our room had a nice new TV. I agree with a previous reviewer about the great lobby coffee! The sign said the mochas were a dollar but we were never charged. The Heritage is pet-friendly, so we were able to bring my boyfriend's big yellow lab into the room for an extra $10 fee. The kitchen area had snack and soda vending machines, plus a coin-operated washer and dryer. The only real negative aspect about this place is the super-thin walls. We heard EVERYTHING going on in the room and bathroom next to us, not to mention the hallway. Be sure to bring some earplugs for uninterrupted sleep.

Like the other review indicated...public areas were great. Had a GREAT coffee machine that made each cup fresh...REALLY GOOD coffee. Our room was okay. Bedroom was clean if a little dated...but after all it is Alaska. We enjoyed the resturants nearby. The dryer came in handy as we got our clothes soaked on a excursion that we took.

Only real complaint was that the shower curtain smelled musty. I let the desk know and the person said that she would take care of it.

Really nice people and good location. Would recommend to friends.

Cute from the outside, with a well maintained lobby and public areas (just like the picture, notable efforts to keep it nice - furniture, well cared for plants, scented candles, pictures in the halls). The furniture in our rooms could have used an update. Very clean, but the naugahyde swivel chairs were a little too reminiscent of a 60's cocktail bar...but perhaps they were meant to be retro? I'd class it as not the Ritz but perfectly doable. Location away from all the craziness at the Spit was good. Coffee shop/internet cafe a half block away. Presence of a full kitchen and washer/dryer for guests to use could be a real positive.
