If you are looking for a good deal, with great complimentary breakfast this is for you. Good selection of hot and cold items, and the breakfast room has lovely scenery. The hotel itself is more of a motel layout, so if you are in the furthest building it is a bit of a walk to the main building. Easy access...

Best Western Bidarka Inn located in Homer, Alaska provided a safe, clean and comfortable stay while I was in Homer for business. The location in Homer is on edge of the community and yet was very close to Safeway market and restaurants and other shops.

The staff was great and did a fantastic job of accommodating our big group of kids and adults. Complimentary breakfast was better than expected and the view of Kachemak Bay from the dining area is spectacular. Dining area was also very clean and staff was friendly. Our room was clean, but dated. The door appeared to have been beat numerous...

The Badarka Inn is the only hotel that I've stayed at where I feel like I'm at home. It is very warm and inviting from the comfortable desk area to the comfortable breakfast room to the very comfortable king or queen rooms.

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...

I would like to apologize for your bad nights sleep. Please call the front desk and let us know that the guests around you are being noisy and keeping you from sleeping. 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...

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...
