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...

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...

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.

I have stayed here numerous times over the past few years and every time I am pleased with the cleanliness and amenities here. The view is always spectacular from the ocean front rooms. This time however, they went over and above and truly won my heart. While in Homer, I lost a ring that I have worn for over 40...

Older property with average amenities. Seems to be very clean. However the view is to die for. Hotel overlooks the water and the view is wonderful. Within walking distance of a couple of restaurants but several are within 5-10 minutes drive. There is no breakfast included, but there is a fridge and microwave. It is about a 5 minute drive...

Overview: My wife and I stayed at this hotel on 5/9/14 on our 8 day trip to Alaska. We located this motel via Trip Advisor. Pros: Excellent Views. The lady at the front desk would have given us one of the prime rooms; however, they were occupied. Our view was still amazing and we both enjoyed it. Beautiful Beach: It...

On our NCL land tour we stayed here for 1 night and it was fantastic. The Resort itself is just average. Pretty much a motel. Rooms are basic and very clean and spotless. Your walk out your door to a view that is stunning. It is right on the beach and snow topped mountains in the distance. Its not a...

We've been staying here for the past few years when we've come down to homer. Clean, comfortable, and the staff is great. The hotel is right on the beach, not far from bishops beach. So it's a nice walk to two sisters bakery. Now for the entertainment. You can build a fire in one of the stone circles on the...
