I'm an Alaskan resident so take it from me! They've got everything you need plus the amazing shoreline and views! This is where I stay in Homer! And I've tried a lot of the local Homer lodgings. You will love it as well! ~ Mark Mandigo, Anchorage AK

Clean and well decorated rooms, amazing accommodations, helpful and caring staff got me in touch with lots of fishing guides and made my trip a lifelong memory. The pathway down to the beach was awesome and made it feel like you had it all to yourself, quiet and serene. I loved this hotel and everything it provided.

We wanted a room with a view, and every room at Ocean Shores looks out over the water and incredible layers of magnificent mountains. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and we enjoyed hours sitting on our private deck mesmerized by the view. There is a path to the beach, and it is a perfect beach for long walks. The...

We stayed one night here whilst driving around Alaska. The apartments are spacious and clean. It was possible to view the ocean over the top of a wooden fence and trees. The kitchen set up was a bit strange as it had a work surface, microwave, but no cutlery or other kitchen tools. It was fine for one night. When...

We went to this hotel with the YMT group. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the inside is very nice. The room was spacious with a small kitchen area, 2 beds, TV, table and chairs. There is a nice deck off the back and the view is spectacular. We stayed 2 nights and it was wonderful. The...

Ocean Shores is an average hotel. It is pretty outdated, especially the bathrooms, but it was clean. The price is pretty steep but the views are exceptional. The view is certainly the best part of the hotel but the balconies have one chair and a bench that aren't at all comfortable to sit in for any length of time. If...

Spent three nights in Homer and stayed here because of the view. Requested waterfront but didn't get that. Don't know why, the place wasn't busy. Ask for a coffee maker at the office, otherwise you will have awful coffee from "tea bags" in the microwave. Although the room was spacious and very clean, the mattresses were like granite. When we...

We stayed 2 nights in July and it is an old property that once renovated has great potential. Basic spacious rooms, clean but tired with a kitchenette. Wifi was spotty but functional. I normally do not like writing average reviews but I hope that the management reads this and pulls up its socks as for the quality of what you...

We had just one night in Homer and found this hotel at a reasonable price (for Alaska!). When we pulled up we were surprised and disappointed to see that it was a row of prefabs along the cliff and another row behind it. Ours was the second row. The room itself was sufficient for a night and had facilities for...

Upgraded my mom, just because! The owner is such a nice guy who painstakingly maintains the grounds and facilities! The rooms are very neat and clean and all of the furniture is in great shape. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Homer.
