"Very pleasantly surprised"
After reading some reviews that were not favorable I had some doubts but that all changed at check-in. Very friendly staff, clean office area. Our room was large and spacious! We had 2 Queens, a couch, flat-screen tv with cable, fridge, microwave, ironing board & iron, desk, tables, chairs. The bathroom was pretty small compared to the rest of the room […] but it was clean. The furnishings were in good condition as was the bedding & towels. We had the complimentary breakfast and it was impressive in its variety. There were hot options; eggs, home style potatoes, bacon, biscuits & gravy, a make-your-own waffle station. There was cold cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, bagels, muffins, pastries, various fruit juices, coffee & tea, a small selection of fresh fruit. Since I had small children with me I was happy for all of the options. The view is not great but the hotel is on the highway in town, so the location is great and easy to find. Overall, I was very pleased with our stay and would definitely come back to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not My Top Choice"
The Negatives: Everything in the room seemed old: the microwave was dial operated, the shampoo dispenser cover kept popping off, the toilet could've been my grandmother's... I don't think they've renovated since the '80's. It took forever for the water to get hot. The view from our window was of someone's run down shed and a mess of a backyard. Breakfast, […] which is included, was passable, but not by much. The Positives: reasonable rates, breakfast included, and the view from the breakfast lounge is excellent. Also, the location is close to downtown, which was very convenient for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Those beds were the best! The internet connection was great. Although we were supposed to have had a non smoking room, there was a trace of smoke lingering in the room. The breakfast menu was quite extensive and certainly more than a continental breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great room, great location, great people! I choose Bidarka every time I go to Homer! Very consistently great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This chain is preferred in rural Alaska"
We really enjoyed our stay at this chain's Homer, AK location. The beds were superb, and I really enjoyed the openness and spaciousness of this particular room we stayed in. Free breakfast and rewards program rocks and we choose Best Western before any others when we're in small Alaska communities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel location was good, right on main road so it was easy to get to all destinations of interest. Room was clean and the maid service was very good. Unfortunately, the hotel staff at the front desk was not friendly. The shower water temperature could not be controlled. It cycled from very hot to extremely cold within a few minutes. This happened every […] time either of us showered over the entire three day stay. Neither the food nor the service in the hotel restaurant were good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor Customer Service"
We called when we were about 45 min away and were told we could not check in until 3pm, which was an hour. We had been on the road for four hours. When we arrived at 2:50 we were told the room was not ready until 3. We came back an hour later. The directions to the hot tub in the room made no sense at all. We figured it out, but not with the help of […] the directions. It would have only taken an attendant a min to walk to our room and show us how to set it up, but we got a paper. They were very unfriendly. They said there was wi-fi. It kept coming and going throughout our stay. The shower had no water pressure at all and the temp kept going from hot to cold. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. I would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bidarka In Homer, AK"
Walls tend to be very thin. Very entertaining if you are an adult and have an room next to one that has a "hot tub" party going on. Not very entertaining if you're staying there with a family and everyone if tired!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"dont stay in rooms above bar"
room was hot and had to have the window open with a small fan running constancely with the window open were able to enjoy all the loud talking from the bar customers or emplyees through out the night. loud slamming of doors. the best part was the dog barking in the hallway at 6 in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Hotel in Homer, Alaska"
This was a great location to all activities and the harbor in Homer. Restaurants were close by plus we got a nice breakfast for free. very nice room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
bad hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My room was above the bar. When I checked in the clerk said they would close at 10 PM. At 11 PM they were loud & clear. I called the front desk & was informed they never close at 10. They close when the last consumer departs. I informed the clerk I had paid a large sum to go halbut fishing the next morning & I needed some sleep. He ask the bar manager […] to reduce the volume on the juke box which he did but I could still hear it but it wasn't too loud. I went to sleep but was awaken at 3 AM by someone down the hall struming his guitar & trying to sing. I ask to be moved to another room the next day which they did. The next night was better but still a lot of noise from the hall & adjoining room. I could not recommend this motel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A reasonable place to stay"
Hotel is obviously an older property, but has been renovated in the recent past and was well-kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was (very) small, but about what would be expected in a building of its age. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Easy and friendly check-in. Need a car to go to the spit. There is very little to do in the township, but it was enough for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Homer Best Western"
02/21/14 Teresa H Eagle River, United States
This Best Western in Homer was clean and the staff friendly. It was relatively inexpensive and had a comfortable bed and reliable WIFY Internet Service. I don't care for Best Western's reservation policies or being charged for services I didn't receive so I am less happy with this chain of hotels then anything about this specific hotel.
"Don't waste your money!!"
02/02/14 Sara B Anchorage, Alaska
We stayed at this joke of a motel for two nights the first weekend of February. At first sight it looked like it would be an ok place to stay, but looks are very deceiving. This place has a bar attached to it where some very weird locals hang out, so you have a bunch of drunks roaming the property at all hours of the night. The room we were given was on the first floor of an entirely separate building. The room was outdated and smelled funny. The walls are SO thin, that we could clearly hear every conversation of the couple next door to us, not to mention their "late night activities"! Who the heck wants to hear that all night??!!!! On top of that, the brochure says to request a later check out to contact the front desk, I went to the front desk and asked for a little bit later check out time (due to my husband's work schedule) and the lady very rudely replied, "check out time is at 12:00!" I politely reminded her that the brochure we were given stated we could request a later check out time. She was still very rude and acted like I was bothering her, but eventually gave us a check out time of 1:00. This is definitely not a place for families with children to stay. We will NEVER stay here again, and I do NOT recommend this joke of a motel to ANYONE!!

Nice hotel great staff would stay there any time I am in the area! Everything was better than expected. The breakfast was far better than I expect and better than most Best Western hotels. If you are in the area a great place to stay and was reasonable in comparison.

It was fine. They put us in a corner room with a pretty decent view. But it was just above the Otter Room Bar. We couldn't open the windows because people were smoking and talking on the deck outside, and the smell of grease from the kitchen was nearly unbearable. We were only there 2 nights so no point moving. The room is really Blah with no personality at all -- more of an off-the-highway Best Western than one of the good ones you'd see in the American West. What can I say. No regrets since it was so cheap. And walking distance to AJ's which was great.
"Nice stay, all around"
10/09/13 RockyMountainTech Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona
A very nice, very clean room. Excellent front desk staff, and a nice breakfast buffet upstairs in the morning. Great dinner at the Otter Room. Absolutely no complaints. This was my second stay in Homer, and was much better than Beluga Lake Lodge, in every aspect.

"Well, It's OK"
09/19/13 Mike C
The main problem was the noise, even though folks weren't noisy. I could hear folks in adjacent rooms & walking outside. The heat was hard to regulate & when I opened the window to cool off(there's no air conditioning) the window crank broke.
"Side Trip To Homer"
09/18/13 mdl444 Knoxville
We were here one night-very clean room and bathroom-the bed was very comfortable. In the morning the breakfast was very good. We would stay here again. The location is away from the Homer Spit but it is not too far away by car. Homer is the best place to have halibut and there were some good seafood restaurants in town.
"Best Western Alaska"
