Best Western Bidarka Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is clean, comfortable, has a buffet breakfast, is easy to find. A very nice option for those who are going to be out and exploring, not sitting in a hotel room. The breakfast buffet was fine...they kept running out of the hot food items which was a little tricky as we were on a tight schedule. The front desk staff was friendly. There is a bar/restaurant on site.

We stayed 2 nights as part of a group tour in Alaska. The room was very comfortable and walking distance to some great restaurants. The best was the breakfast room that had a great view of the bay and breakfast was included with a lot of variety. Included breakfasts are very rare in Alaska! Our local guide was very impressed!!

Great location just minutes from the day. Rooms were very clean and well done. Internet was excellent the whole time. Their breakfast had everything you could want or need and the staff was super friendly.

Very clean and excellent staff. Very family friendly with large rooms and good breakfast buffet. Staff ready to help with any request. Granddaughters loved the room and the chance to "go out" for breakfast!

Nice room, we got a room with a hot tub, the room was very humid due to the hot tub but it was a good time. The hotel lounge/restaurant was full of a bunch of local foul mouthed drunks, not a good family environment.

very reliable and fast in room internet, great restaurant and lounge area. The ladies at the front desk will tell you where to visit on your stay here. Im from Alaska and always ask for a new place to visit when in Homer

Ok, so this hotel was ok for one night. It is an older hotel and could use updating. That said, there are not a lot of staying options in Homer, so that to be considered. The room we had just smelled old, so much so that we actually went to the store and bought Febreeze to freshen it up a bit. The bathroom was tiny. We were not impressed overall, but like I said it worked for one night. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Clean rooms, good breakfast, good location, hot coffee.....and you can make your own waffles 😜 Centraly located in the cozy little fishing town of Homer, Alaska. On the shore of Ketchamak bay. Very affordable

I spent five nights at the Bidarka Inn in mid-September. The staff was friendly, from the maintenance guys to the housekeepers to the front desk staff. Everyone was willing to answer my many questions about Homer, and they did it with a smile on their faces. The room was comfortable and quiet, even though I was facing the highway and near the bar. The soundproofing on my room was excellent and I never woke up due to outside noise. Very clean room and the staff keeps the grounds clean as well. I'll definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Homer!

We frequently stay at Best Western properties and usually find them to be quite nice. This visit was no exception. We had a nice large room with a better than average breakfast included. The property appears to be a little older (1970’s?) but has been updated. Our room had a completely new bathroom and bed among other furnishings. We had a room in the building with the lobby and my guess is that they’ve probably added on over time. Even being close to the lobby, the room was quiet and we did not hear people in the hall. The huge breakfast room used to be a restaurant with bar, so it holds a lot of people, not the usually cramped quarters for most hotels. There is also a separate restaurant and lounge as part of the hotel. I think the BW and the hotel at the end of the spit are probably the biggest and nicest in town, but the BW is well located, near restaurants, the beach and the visitor center.
