We chose this Hotel because it was pet friendly. Not all Best Westerns are. It was close to everything. The front door was broken. They immediately moved us to a different room. The Otter room had good food. The complimentary breakfast was very good.Staff was friendly.

Stayed here in early October for just the one night as a last minute thing. I probably wouldn't stay any longer but the beds are comfy & the rooms are large so there's no complaints with the overall stay we had. The rooms are a little out dated but still clean.

The bathroom and sitting area was clean and comfortable too. The bathroom area looked a little older, but it has been maintained well. I had the the breakfast that... More

The hotel overall was very good, but the restaurant was the highlight of the stay. Wonderful ambiance, food and service. Some of the best food we had on our trip to Alaska! A surprise for a hotel restaurant.

Was visiting Homer & only stayed one night on 9/19/16. We had a room with two queen beds. Room was very clean & well appointed. If it matters to anyone, this inn does not have interior corridors & I really don't think any of the rooms (or very few) have views of the inlet. We had a room on the... More

It was towards the end of the season and our large king and queen bed room was only $120. That's quite rare to have that bed size combination and it was greatly appreciated. We had a partial of the mountains too. There was a refrigerator that actually kept everything cold, microwave and a small coffee maker. The beds were comfortable.... More

My wife and I spent two nights while I recovered enough to drive back to Soldotna, The service, cleanliness and condition of the room was outstanding. During our stay I was unable to ascend the stairs for breakfast. The staff without being asked volunteered to bring breakfast to our room. Unexpected but appreciated kindness at a time of need.

It was a cruise ship day, so we were lucky to get a room anywhere. We were grateful to get one of their last rooms, even though it was a smoking room. The room reeked but we were provided with an air freshener. We knew what we were getting so we can't really complain. The room was pretty dated, but... More

Stayed here 08/25/16 while in Homer for a fishing trip. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant and bar (try the halibut - fresh and very well cooked!). Good selection of beers on tap. Good location, and quite reasonably priced. I would stay here again, and would recommend to my friends.
