We have stayed here 2 nights while visiting ONP. A really good base to see Sol Duc Valley and Hurricane Ridge. We stayed at the Marymere room which has the view of the lake. The room is roomy and clean. The onsite restaurant is really good and it is a little pricey. Very happy with our stay.

Storm King rooms are bad

The lake and it’s surrounding is beautiful, without question. The lodge inside has a gift shop and a restaurant and a bar. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Restaurant requires dinner reservations but breakfast and lunch are first come first serve. The Restaurant does take out so you can snag a table in the public seating areas of the lodge or you can eat outside weather permitting. Dinner was tasty although pricy for what it is. Now, the Storm King room was pretty bad for $250 per night. I’ve stayed in nicer motels that cost much less. The walls are paper thin. Not only can you hear people next door talking, you can hear the curtains being pulled in the next room. We knew to have low expectations but if you book these rooms you should know what you’re getting. You’re paying for the location, not comfort or the amenities (there aren’t any). Luckily we had a room on the second floor at the end otherwise the idea of dealing with sounds from 2 or 3 neighbors would be unbearable! I just count myself lucky our shower didn’t have mold. Because some of the tiles that doesn’t get air did seem a bit black. At least the shower had hot water and good pressure. The room luckily does have a working heater. In all I’m glad we stayed only one night. Would be curious if the rooms in other buildings are any better. Now that the lodge is managed by Aramark, I don’t know if it will ever be updated or remodeled.

Beautiful Setting

Every year my two sisters and I take our annual "Sista's Trip". This year was Olympic National Park and Seattle. We spent two nights in the two room Roosevelt Cabin, #35. The cabin interior is all knotty pine, with a refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker and a wood burning fire place. Our cabin had a queen bed in the main area, and two double beds in the room off the main area. The bathroom has been updated. They provide you with fast burning logs and kindling for the fireplace, you will need a lighter. The beds were not that comfortable. The tub/shower, toilet and sink were clean, but the floor and baseboards were not. The back door of the cabin is only steps away from the lake. The restaurant was good, but due to supply and demand some items are not available. The front desk and restaurant personnel were extremely nice and helpful. The hike to the falls was the best one we did while in the park. The other lodging options didn't appeal to us, so we were glad we paid extra for the Roosevelt Cabin.

Beautiful setting with subpar accommodations

We have been visiting national park lodges for years, including several visits during the pandemic, the Lake Crescent Lodge is probably the most poorly run one that we've been to. The (Storm King) room that we stayed in (at over $250 a night) is so sparsely furnished that it reminds me of a college dorm room. There was 1 night table and 1 desk, along with 1 desk chair and 2 well worn padded chairs, in the room. A queen bed of course. The bathroom has zero counter space just a small glass shelf. We tried to eat our take out in the room (since the only restaurant on the property or within miles of the lodge, was fully booked), and there literally was no place for my husband to set our food down to eat. No TV, no phone, no clock, no fridge, no microwave, ...none of this bothers me too much..., but the lack of sufficient and basic furniture is simply baffling. On top of everything, apparently they did not train the housekeeping staff to make the bed properly. Without going into tons of details, I basically had to remake the bed, as the sheets and blanket were tucked 1/2 way down the bed, and the top 1/2 of our body would have been uncovered when sleeping. My husband went to order dinner takeout from the restaurant at 7, and apparently most of the main course items had already been sold out, only chicken and fish&chips left. We just ordered soup and salad. The soup takeout cup was filled 2/3 way up, for $9 per serving. Luckily, the lake, the trails, the park, and the main lodge area, are all beautiful, so we simply accept the poor quality of service, because..., hey, one has no choice if this is the area you would like to visit. Thankfully, we had heard about how bad the service was, so we packed a cooler full of food so we didn't have to rely on the unreliable restaurant.

Excellent location, staff, atmosphere

A friend and I stayed in one of the motel-style rooms on April 30, the second night the lodge was open for the season. It was a wonderful one-night getaway from Seattle. Staff were extra friendly and accommodating, the food was better than we’d expected (make reservations for dinner!), and our room was extremely clean and comfortable. A nice thing is that room are spread out around the property, so even though the lodge was at capacity, as apparently it always is, it did not feel crowded.
