This place is clean and centrally located, but that's it. The rooms appear from the outside as quaint but the interior is awful. They're tiny and in contrast to the main lodge the decor is nothing short of embarrassing. The walls were decorated in cheap posters contained in cheap frames circa 1980's. The TV was something you only find in thrift stores and about 12 inches wide (at least in was in color). Because the room was so small the TV is hooked up in the corner like in a hospital at a difficult to watch angle.
No bathtub only a tiny shower with a cheap spray head. Cheap and old were the two things to count on.
And of course, the sound of planes taking off every morning a few yards from your head made it impossible to sleep in. Also, the deck that wrapped around the cabins were extremely thin and the sound of peoples foot prints were so loud it shook the interior walls of your room (throw in a few kids running back and forth and it's enough to make you say "forget it! that's it! I can't take it anymore!!!) The saving grace was a hot tub and while located directly next to the parking lot, it did have a nice view of the lake.
I'm very grateful for Tripadvisor and I've been pleased with almost all of our online purchases. Granted some were better than others but still overall very pleasant. We don't consider ourselves very picky people, but this was truly a lemon. My advise is to spend a little more money and stay somewhere nice. If you're on a budget, even the Beluga Inn across the way is a better value. Homer is a lovely place to visit don't ruin it by staying here. Good luck and happy trails!
