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.

There are so many good things to say about the Ocean Shores. My room was spotless and had everything I needed. The grounds and buildings were perfectly maintained, and the staff members were friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is perfect for a visitor with no car; it is close to many restaurants and shops, making the beautiful walk around...

After reading a few reviews, I had higher expectations. Our room was in the back row, too close to the road, but the view from the second story was magnificent. It was missing several things I consider to be standard in a motel room....no brewed coffee was made available. There were some cups and instant mix (not coffee in my...

Stayed here overnight was playing tour guide to an out of state friend. We didn't spend much time in the room but it fit our needs and it was a nice view from the room. I don't usually travel around until after the tourist season is done here in AK because the prices are a bit too high for what...

I loved this place. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the room was very comfortable, immaculately clean, had a 40" or so flat panel TV, microwave, and small refrigerator. The beds were double-sheeted with a sheet over the comforter, which I love because you know it's fresh. We had an ocean front room in the front building...

I'm sorry that I spent here only one night, because it really worths to stay more. I got a room with ocean view and patio. It's really clean, spacious, silent, with a big window from I can see the both ocean and mountains. This kind of room has also a nice patio where you can sit and enjoy the green...

Very Friendly front desk staff. We were not on the beach, but it as an easy walk down to it. We had second floor 'view room, which as advertised, offered a nice view of the ocean/bay. The hotel itself and the rooms/decor were a bit dated, but it’s what we expected and added to the 'sea-shore' charm. It was a...
