I cannot stress enough that every person should stay here at least once in their life. It is very economical, the views are amazing and the service was outstanding. Not only do you have lake views, and plenty of chairs to sit by the lake, they also have bar service and a restaurant to make your evening convenient as you visit Olympic National Park. We loved ending our evenings with a glass of wine, sitting on the porch, looking out to the lake at sunset. Keep in mind that the lodge is over 100 years old so it is rustic and not brand new (for anyone reading negative reviews)

I don’t get the negative reviews. Sure, the place was built in 1915. The historic rooms share a bathroom. If you want to be pampered, stay elsewhere. However, the food is very good. The staff is great. The night manger Christine ordered a new shipment of wood when she could have just said it was someone else’s job. Aaron and the waitstaff are great. This place is magically beautiful. Marriottts have a place in this world. Thankfully not here.

The lodge is rustic, old, and charming but the room was awful. Bathroom hadn’t been wiped down, towels were stained and ?dirty, linens were stained or dirty? Room not vacuumed. Manager brought is to another room which was clean but just as worn out. Beds hard. No updates since 1970’s? Lake is nice but grounds unkept. Dinner was adequate and over priced. Paying for location only without comfort. Very disappointing stay.

Location, Location.

A group of us rented several of the Singer Cabins. In general, the reaction was that it was too pricey if you are judging only on the rooms. But it's all about location, location. Beautiful at sunrise, and sunset and all day long. Pleasant lodge and dining room. We had a one bed cabin, so plenty of space. Comfortable bed. Shower was good, but tub is small and a bit slippery. No handholds. (Needs a non-skid bathmat) Quiet, no noise from other cabins even though they are very, very close together. Keurig in the room. We had breakfast in the lodge. At our table three of four were pleased with the food, one said, "okay, but not great" for their omelet. In the evening, drinks in the lobby are expensive, but again, it's a charming setting and you have to factor that into the price. Staff was very pleasant. We loved the fun atmosphere. Drove to hikes and bicycle path, and out to the strait. Lots to do!!

The location right on the shores of Lake Crescent can't be beat. It seems to be a great place for families with children who were having fun in the water and others renting kayaks, etc. As with most NPS lodges, the rooms are in need of help. I understand people go there for the location, as we did. So the property doesn't see the need to update the rooms since visitors will keep coming anyway, as we did. The lodge has to do a better job of telling potential guests that connectivity is a huge issue. They have no Wifi and very limited cell service. You have to hunt for spots. One of the staff told us to go near the shoreline to try to get service. Also the restaurant has a monopoly. Food was OK but pricey. Service was awful. Waited an hour to get our dinner. I know this is probably due to the service worker shortage everyone is experiencing. The staff worked hard but be prepared for long waits.
