Request an ocean view, but even if you don't get one....the property is very well maintained and has gorgeous views. There's a short trail down to the beach, take a walk and enjoy the sights and sounds! Quaint peaceful beauty~

Stayed here 13 years ago and loved it. Hasn't changed, love it even more! Ocean view rooms outstanding! Watching the tide go in and out phenomenal ! Super clean. Kathy the housekeeper did a fabulous job. Ginger at the front desk cracked us up! Will still highly recommend!

We had stayed at Ocean Shores 15 years ago, and it remains a great place to stay. It is a motel style accomodation. However, it is very clean, has a great view, and the owner as well as the employees are very nice. We walked to old town, and it has many interesting sights to see as well as a...

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...

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...

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...

Reviewed 11 July 2014

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.
