Beautiful, but HOT
We stayed at one of the Roosevelt Cabins for 2 nights. When we stayed, there was a heat advisory, and while I know there is nothing the hotel can do about the weather, I think there are a few things they could do to make people more comfortable when it is so hot. First, when we arrived at the cabins, all of the curtains were opened so the sun was beating in, heating up the room. I wish they would close curtains when they are expecting hot weather. Second, there were no fans in the room at all. Third, most of the windows in this cabin do not open, they tilt open a bit, but that’s it. The one exception is the window in the bathroom. We knew about the heat so we brought two box fans, strategically placing them to cool the room off. Without these fans, I think sleeping would have been miserable.
Outside of the heat, the cabins were very nicely decorated, spacious, and clean. The view of the lake was fabulous and we had our own picnic table and chairs on the beach. It’s a fantastic place to stay, just check the weather, and maybe bring a few fans.

Beautiful Lake Crescent
Our family enjoyed our stay in a Singer cabin at Lake Crescent Lodge. The number one reason to stay here is for the proximity to the spectacular Crescent Lake. We loved having happy hour in the adirondack chairs overlooking the lake in the late afternoon when the crowd was gone. Sunrise was beautiful as well. The Singer cabins were very basic, as expected. My only complaint is that our bathroom was not very clean. It would be good if someone would check the rooms before turning it over to the guests to ensure it was properly cleaned. The front desk staff was nice and friendly. We would come stay again.

Idylic setting on the lake - Singer cabins a bit basic for high price
National park lodges are notoriously expensive and generally very old. This one is no exception. We were two couples staying int the Singer Cabins 5-6, a line of cabins just behind the main lodge. Each room had its own entrance a and a narrow porch but only one room had a bathroom so one couple had to walk through the other bedroom to get to the bathroom. Be sure you are good friends with your travel mates. The front porch looked inviting and had 2 rocking chairs but they were so narrow you could nearly rock. If 4 people wanted to have a glass of wine and share conversation, it would be better to move the chairs out onto the lawn. The views were memorable and the place has a rustic charm but comfort is not its strong point.

A dump for 160/night
The lodge rooms are a proper DUMP. The walls are dirty, the floors have spills and stains all over The bed and beddings have been overused and are yellow and stained to the point where I d rather sleep in my car. 160/night gor such as dump. Never again.

The lodge is a wonderful place to stay, especially if you plan to hike Mount Storm King the next day! My wife and I stayed here for a night while honeymooning around the Olympic Peninsula and it was great! The only thing that rivaled how good the views were was the service. Paul at the front desk was one of the nicest people and gave us great tips about the surrounding area and some beautiful hikes. During our stay we met two separate bartenders, Adam and Aaron, who were so polite and kind and while dining in the Lodge resturaunt we had a wonderful waiter named Sean. I believe that when an employee goes over and beyond to help customers then they must be mentioned! I would stay here again without a doubt. Wonderful views, phenomenal employees, and great food!
Pro tip: Ask for the Lavender Lemonade, it is the bomb!
