Spread across the best real estate on the Spit, Land's End offers splendid bay views from variously styled rooms and suites. The resort also has three-bedroom condos—economical for groups of up to 10 people—that come with full kitchens, balconies, and access to a private beach. The restaurant, The Chart Room ($$$$), specializes in seafood but also serves burgers and steaks. Call in advance to reserve a table with a window view of Kachemak Bay—or on a sunny day, dine on an enormous deck that perches over the water. In the winter, when the deck is closed, guests can partake of the chef's monthly wine-paired, themed-dinner ($80).

I stayed at Land's End in August of 2008. This was my least-favorite hotel of the trip, yet still the best option in Homer, so I would have to recommend it for that reason alone. I had problems with them from the beginning with making my reservation. I never received a confirmation, yet my credit card was charged with the deposit. We first booked the cheapest room (which was about $135 per night), but after reading the bad reviews and descriptions,
we upgraded to the 2-story loft suite (which was about $200 per night). If that was the best room in the hotel, I’m glad that we didn’t stay in the “worst” as originally planned. The room was clean, but the decor was just odd. The lower part of the room had the bathroom (with the sink outside the room with the toilet/shower), sofa bed and TV, and then upstairs was the bedroom, an additional TV, and a balcony (but the view was of a rooftop next to the water; yes, it was technically a water view, but not really). The hot tubs (one indoor and one outdoor) were sketchy-looking to me, but others seemed to enjoy them, so who am I to judge? Parking was free, but space seemed limited (I think people staying at the Land’s Inn Lodge “condos” next door were parked in the hotel lot as well). The hotel is located at the very end of the Spit, so technically, it’s surrounded by water on three sides. We were close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants on the Spit, but didn’t because it was rainy while we were there. The hotel has a restaurant (where we didn’t eat) and a spa (prices were phenomenal to me, and I live near NY and Philadelphia). As I said, the best option in Homer, but nothing to write home about.
