This hotel was clean, attractive, convenient to the highway, but not effected by the sounds of the highway. The staff was courteous and very helpful. At one point, water started flowing from the bathroom light fixture. The front desk had a maintenance person in our room in five minutes and helped move us to another room as to not interrupt our stay. The breakfast had a wide variety of well prepared food.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so first floor rooms are move convenient to those with mobility problems.

If you're into Chain Hotels and have a Best Western Rewards card, than this place isn't bad. If you're looking for a Homer experience with views to match, then do not book a room at the Best Western Bidarka Inn.

The Motel is right on the main highway, very far away from the Homer Spit as you and not a view to be had from any of the rooms. It's a motel style with all of the room doors opening to the outside, so there will be street noise. There is nothing cute, cozy, or even remotely Alaskana about this place.

That being said, if you're used to the standards that Best Western Hotels provide, than this is the place for you. It's clean, and the rooms have everything you need: comfy beds, clean bathrooms, coffee maker, mini fridge, microwave, hair dryer, and cable television. There is a free continental breakfast in the room above the office, and a restaurant/lounge on site as well.

I stayed here because my employer put me here for work... but if I were in Homer for fun, I would definitely try a bed and breakfast - of which there are many in Homer.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms have been rennovated more recently than the first floor, but there is no elev...

The check-in person was friendly and helpful. The motel looks old from the outside, but has been remodeled with modern decor inside. The good-sized room had a desk and two comfortable chairs, a comfortable bed, and sufficient storage space, but it was not very well lit. The sink, which is placed very low, is in the same room with the toilet and shower. There was sufficient counter space, and the bathroom was well lit. The toilet ran very loudly. The showerhead was placed too high and lacked power. The room had a large mini-fridge with freezer and a small microwave. The walls seemed thin; we heard the TV and other noise from adjacent rooms. The outside heating system made noise in the night. The breakfast buffet was an old-fashioned selection of real eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, pancakes, and a few other items. There was not much in the way of healthy alternatives. We had a gorgeous partial view of the water and mountains from our room. We had a wonderful fish dinner at Captain Pattie's on the spit.

While the rooms were not great, the staff helped a lot and the breakfast was one of the better ones I seen in Alaska

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the south side due to the long summer days-if not your room will be ligh...

Paid $150 for a tv that doesn't work properly, dirty remote and terrible service. Check in is supposed to be at 2, I had to wait until four.
