Rooms are minimal in furnishings, but very clean with good quality linens. The beds are comfortable with white linen bed spreads. Something I like a lot, nice to know there is no camouflage of cleanliness! Excellent view of ocean with cozy semi-private porch. Foot trail down to beach is nice, but could be a bit challenging for someone with stability...

Don't let the prison camp exterior fool you; the rooms are well kept, fairly modern, and situated on a beautiful beach convenient to all of Homer. No A/C, no screens in Windows, no blackout shades. Had to look past the junk car and sea of RVs to the inlet. Went next door to the RV supply store for coffee the...

We were very disappointed with our stay. Good view and that's the only good thing I have to say about this older motel. We were on the ocean front building, any of the other buildings would suck. Absolutely no insulation between rooms. You could hear everything in the adjacent rooms. The place really needs updating or just bulldozing. If you...

We (three adults) stayed at Ocean Shores for two nights in June. The room was clean and simple. OS is a motel -- not a luxury hotel -- so there aren't amenities. Décor and colors are outdated but functional. Your grandmother would love this place. Be aware that an ocean/water view isn't the same as oceanfront. We could see the...

From our room, the view was amazing...mountains and the ocean from our walk out patio. The staff was very friendly and prompt, our room was very clean and comfortable. But, for the price, not as nice as some of the other places we stayed in ak. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room along with instant coffee. No...

We stayed at this hotel while on a GATE1 tour. This is a great hotel. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but all the rooms have fabulous views! The rooms themselves are nicely furnished with frigs and microwaves, and very clean. The owners were so accommodating, not only allowing us to have a bonfire on the beach, but...

This is a well maintained reasonably priced property in a beautiful Alaskan setting in the Halibut Capitol of the World situated on the hillside coming down into Homer, with a 75+ mile view from your private deck of the Barren Islands 1/2 way to Kodiak to the West and Halibut Cove to the East with huge snow covered mountains, the...

We stayed here for two nights. The view from our room was amazing even when we were at the second building from the beach. This is a motel, so don't expect anything fancy. However, the room was spacious and well maintained, it had a fridge and an outdated microwave but worked just fine. Probably the best part is that you...

This is an older property that has been well maintained. The view from our room was fantastic. The room was comfortable and clean. It had some of the best pillows of any hotel of our entire trip. We only stayed here one night but wish the stay was longer. We would stay here again but longer next time.

This a motel with a very clean, comfortable room with a microwave and undercounter frig which we appreciated. We were on the 2d floor of the back bldg and found the view wonderful. We had been traveling for two plus weeks thru Alaska so had some experience with views. There was a lovely little balcony, big sliding doors, overlooking the...
