Our family of 3 (Dad & 2 boys) stayed at this property for 7 nights. Fishing was my sole reason for choosing this location. The Sea Lion is centrally located to everything. The fishing charter companies are within easy walking distance as well as the famous Captain Patties sea

I was honestly not sure about Homer but this cute little town took me by surprise. I had an action packed three days in Homer and i chose Sea Lion Cove to stay - the pictures on their website don't do justice to the place. First off, the location is just perfect - It's in the

This place needs some TLC. Television only gets 3 channels, one of which actually work. Pillows are gross, flattened out, and GoodWillish. Grungy Curtains do not fit the windows. All the blinds are falling apart. Bedroom/living room separated by a xirty curtain. Shower and

Response from Tiglax, Owner at Sea Lion Cove
Responded 18 Feb 2016
Greetings Airpower, I am very sorry to hear that your stay at our lodging was not up to your expectations. I apologize. I want to address some of your concerns that I feel might be inaccurately reported. Our TV has five network channels with four sub-channels on the state-run system. I discovered that the coax cable was faulty during your stay and it got replaced the next day. My apology for that inconvenience. We provide two pillows for each person to accommodate individual needs. One is low-loft and the other high-loft. We can provide more pillows on request. That unit has one set of curtains that are clean. The unit you stayed in has four sets of blinds and NONE are broken! They all work fine! The sink has a barely visible nick and the tub has a small patch that the builder applied when installing the tub. Neither of these are a hole. Both barely noticeable. Both of our units are cleaned fully, including vacuuming. On multiple night stays we do a daily refreshing and a full clean with changing of linens mid-stay. The carpet is definitely not dirty. Parking is very convenient with, even on the busiest day, a walk of no more than 100 feet. We give our guests a windshield note that identifies their car as belonging in our lot. At night most guests park right in front of the building. In summary we provide a very nice place to stay on Homer Spit. We have many regular guests who choose our lodging way in advance. Our business is open all day long until 8 pm, for any special requests. All our staff have lived here long term and can answer questions and provide recommendations for an enjoyable stay. We are certainly not perfect but we are conscientious! Gary Lyon Owner

Stayed here for 4 nights 8-16 to 8-20 It's a great location on Homer Spit to stay. Stayed in the south unit but not much different than north one. The views are great. This place is very clean. Was quiet except hearing the waves which was very nice.our favorite restaurant

"There are only two. I think we were in the North Room. I would expect the South to be similar, perhaps a slightly better view which you can see much better from the deck anyway. One advantage of the South is that you don't have the other guest walking past."
"Either room is excellent"
"Figure out where you can park ahead of time as theowner doesn't want you parking in front of the gallery even if you are a guest upstairs and get the SECOND room at the top of the stairs not the first one or someone will always be walking past you to get to their room."
