"Excellent place to stay!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Beds are very comfortable! Best breakfast and the chef is a hoot! Went the extra mile to help our family with our gluten free options. He also talks with the kids and they love him! They looked forward to breakfast every morning!

"One night stay at Bidarka Inn in Homer."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We enjoyed a clean first floor room with pet allowance..only complaint the bathroom door sticks room 117. and there is not much noise insulation between floors as the noisy occupant above our unit kept us awake and woke us up at 5:00am. Complimentary breakfast was good and location is convenient.

"Nice place to stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel stay was over July 4th. Love that they are pet friendly (we have a dog) and they are across the street from a middle school with a track and trails for dog walks. Also free breakfast buffet in the morning was really good. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Great place for the money.
