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... More

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.

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... More

Clean & comfortable rooms, the friendliest staff and the most amazing views! What more do you need? The little private deck looking straight down over the ocean and snow capped mountains made it a lovely spot to relax. Would definitely stay here again if I ever make it back to Homer!

What could be more important than a concerned staff. We were only there one night but the staff made a lasting impression. We will go again to Homer and we will stay at the Ocean Shores! Oh, and by the way the private deck and front row seat to a beautiful Alaskan bay didn't hurt either. I left a personal... More

Our rooms were a little less than we expected, although the kids loved the balcony and big lawn to get out and run on after the car ride. They were just a bit dated, but we had stayed in a newer hotel the night before. I was acceptably clean and the guy at the front was nice. And the beds... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love Homer and are always happy when someone has a great time in our town. I want you to know that we are in the process of modernizing our rooms. Our first step is to install flat screen TV's. We have more things planned throughout the summer. More
