Restful, peaceful, serene
I feel lucky to visit Lake Crescent Lodge again this past weekend with my whole family. As usual the lodge and staff were welcoming and accommodating. I spent my two evenings in the Marymere rooms. As it had been a cold rainy drive up the room was wonderfully warm and cozy upon check in. The Marymere are about as close as you can be by the lake, and have a nice overhang with some cozy chairs, so even though it poured I was happy to sit outside and enjoy the spectacular view. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and a few breakfasts, food was great and the wait staff could not have been more accommodating (as were the front desk and house keeping!) Also appreciated the COVID precautions everywhere and were well posted.
Even though it was pouring, we did the hike to Marymere falls and we’re rewarded with spectacular roaring falls. So if you’ve got the rain gear, don’t miss!
Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

Terrible Customer Service
We had a long driving trip to Olympic national park from S. Cal, but by the time we got half-way, I got really sick and had to cancel all my upcoming hotel reservations. Lake Crescent Lodge was the only lodging who refused to give us any refund, although I canceled 5 days in advance. During COVID, when everybody is making their cancellation policies very flexible, they make theirs so they can profit more off the situation. Outrageous and not customer friendly.

Disappointing stay in a perfect location
Lake Crescent is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever experienced. It is absolutely breath-taking. Definitely visit this place when you come visit the Olympic National Park! However, I would recommend finding a different place to stay. We stayed in the Singer Cabins (#5). It was incredibly basic in addition to being dated (which we expected due to the historic nature of the location). The furniture was not historical, just old and unattractive. When I shifted the furniture slightly to access a plug, I was mortified by the amount of dirt and hair underneath. The hot water was barely warm and came out in a trickle. But on the plus side, you could get a small cup of drip coffee for $3.50 from the lodge.... There are some beautiful locations in nearby Port Angeles where you can get a room that is clean and better appointed for a fraction of the price.

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.
