Diamond Lake is beautiful and in a great location close to Crater Lake. We were looking forward to our mini vacation at the resort. We rented a lakeside cabin and we were so disappointed with the accommodations. The cabin conditions and amenities were very bad. Another couple planned to come with us, but we were relieved they didn't because it would have been embarrassing to bring someone and pay the high rental price for such poor accommodations. The cabins are old and worn out and very poorly maintained. Be aware there is no WiFi and we found no cell service anywhere we were at the resort. Below are the issues we experienced during our stay. 1. The beds were very old, with thin and uncomfortable mattresses. The first night we got so little sleep even after trying all of the beds in the cabin. There was a futon in the living room that was the only somewhat comfortable place we could find to sleep. 2. The cupboards in the kitchen are old and warped so they don't even close all the way. 3. Very poorly stocked kitchen. There wasn't a single sharp knife - only butter knives. And no can opener. 4. The adjustment on the shower was broken so only extremely hot water came out of the shower. You couldn't stand under the shower head or you would get scalded. This wasn't fixed while we were there so didn't have a shower while we were there. 5. There is a beautiful view of the lake from the cabins, but the ample windows were so dirty, that took away from the beauty of the view. 6. The staff was friendly, but they weren't surprised at the issues we reported to them. In most cases, they mentioned they had previously heard the same issues from others. 7. We did receive a portion of payment back after bringing these issues to the attention of management.

We stayed down the road but stopped in for breakfast. What a lovely experience! We sat in the window overlooking the snow covered lawn and lake. The Christmas decorations and music just made the whole experience so fun! Our food was delicious!! All the staff we encountered were very friendly!

Room was dirty.

Stayed in hotel. The Room was dirty. Don’t. Think anyone swept under the beds in years. Bedspreads looked sketchy. Got there to late in the day to go anywhere else. I used to stay there years ago and cabins were ok. I will not go back.

Beautiful site

Absolutely loved this resort, so tranquil, very helpful and friendly staff, great shop on site. Short very scenic drive to Crater Lake but a beautiful lake in itself. We stayed in a newly renovated cabin overlooking the lake which was stunning and the renovation was really lovely! Dropped a star as it could have been cleaner, there were socks from a previous occupant and litter down the side of the bed on arrival. For the price we paid for the room we felt this should have been attended to. Despite this would stay again in a heartbeat! Also the BEST tap water I have ever tasted!!!

Don’t Stay Here.

Worse than Motel 6 and more expensive. There were 2 outlets and 2 lights in the entire place - one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. 2 tiny pillows. No hot water. A big spider in the bathroom. At least our sheets were clean. There are many more accommodations around Crater Lake. Choose one of them.
