“Nice Homer Location”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This hotel was very clean and in a great location. The view was beautiful from both buildings, but I suspect better from the building closer to the water. The grounds were maintained beautifully and the beach was easily accessed. The rooms are not sound proofed but the clientele was considerate and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the private balcony and looking at the view. There was a good sized flat screen TV in the room, but we were too busy seeing the sights to turn it on.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the water have an unobstructed view.

We loved the people who run the place, they are friendly, helpful and honest. We forgot something important and they sent it back to us, the rooms were nice and well equipped and the location was great.

This was my first time to Homer, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I had a room with an absolutely gorgeous view, and was very impressed with how quiet the property was, despite being right in town and so close to restaurants and other attractions. My room was nice, clean, and felt fresh, especially because of all the sunlight the windows let in. Last but certainly not least, the front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely be staying here again!

This place is great! Amazing views, close to town and not far from the spit. Rooms are clean. If staying during the Summer I do recommend sleep mask cause it's just mini blinds and with 22 hours of light it helps with sleeping :) I hope you Enjoy!

We stayed two nights, one in the ocean view, and one on the next level. Very clean and very well maintained, excellent staff at the front desk. We arrived with no reservation and the clerk jumped thru hoops to get us comfy. The view of the ocean was spectacular with the tides going out, revealing boulders and all manor of sea life. The sand hill cranes were very entertaining as well. Love that it is all non smoking, and the guests actually respected that rule. We will definitely stay there again....

Room Tip: The beachfront rooms are expensive, but uncluttered views of the ocean is priceless....we truly enjo...

We had a nice room, very clean and was cleaned daily. We spent three nights here. We booked this room in January, 2014 through a travel agent and when we arrived we were not in the front until. We were disappointed as we had booked 6 months in advance. It is an older building and could stand to be updated but it was clean. I did think it was overpriced compared to other hotels that we stayed in during our trip to Alaska.

The hotel is older, well-maintained, and the internet is challenging, but it's the view that was the best part of our stay. Not only was the beach an ever changing and fascinating scene, but the Sand Hill Cranes that waltzed through the property were equally fascinating.

Room Tip: Our room was on the level that was closest to the beach. Our motorcycles were parked just outside t...
