I had to move to a different hotel after one sleepless night at the Best Western - Bidarka Inn. The room was filthy, the carpet was old and a dingy dark brown. The bathroom was dirty and the coffee pot was broken and the cups had a coating of slime on them. The rooms are much smaller than they appear...

We have no way of knowing unless you tell us. We would then contact the guests that are being noisy and/or move you to another room. The maintenance...

Bidarka Inn was an excellent place to stay, conveniently located off the main highway, and very affordable by Alaskan standards. The room was clean, good bathroom facilities, quiet, and good parking. My room was on the first floor...I believe there was no elevator on the second floor...make that request if reserve. The staff was friendly and knowledgable of the local...

Extra large room with a very large screen TV in main building just down the hall from check in. The breakfast room was large and the menu featured both hot and cold treats. Since I was in the main building I didn't have to go outside to reach the breakfast room.

I called for some information about the bar and a woman name Linka or Rinka answered the phone like people calling are just a hassle to her. I felt very un-welcomed by her. I will not be coming to this hotel when she is around. Very rude.

Free Breakfast, Great Beds and Internet. Front Desk Staff is the Best! Location is very good--close to stores, art shops and great places to eat. A quick drive to the Homer Spit and to nearby hiking trails. An easy walk to Bishops Beach.

The room is clean. Not much lighting in the room. That is ok if a person is just going to sleep here. The house keeping staff I spoke to seemed polite and professional. The first night in the room the wifi did not work. The front desk staff and another employer plus the internet help desk got the wifi up...

Stay there for the weeks while I work in homer. Great stay always. Good staff and a good breakfast. They have a great bar with great service and good food. Staff is always very helpful. Good location that are close to any stores in town and within walking distance of most stores or restaurants.

I stayed for 4 nights while in Homer for a meeting. The hotel is conveniently located on the main road in homer. I requested a room in the small back building. It was nice and quiet. The room was also very clean. The continental breakfast was good each morning. I know a couple other people who stayed during the same...
