This is an older, rustic lodge with an unbeatable location. The rooms are very basic but everything works. The lobby is very inviting and the outdoor deck is perfect at sunset and sunrise. The restaurant is a buffet served by the staff. The food is okay We found the service by everyone at the lodge, friendly and helpful .
This is THE place to stay at Crater Lake.

Magical stay in the park!
I was so excited to get a reservation, even if just for one night and it exceeded all my expectations! The lodge is very old and the rooms are incredibly rustic but the staff is amazing and helps bring the charm to life. The dinner was honestly amazing. I am a vegetarian with a severe nut allergy and they were able to accommodate that with no problems and the cauliflower curry was one of the best things I have ever eaten!! The staff was so accommodating and even moved a table outside for us to enjoy our meal with a view. There are a ton of walks/hikes to do straight from the property as well which we really enjoyed. I can't wait to come back next season!

Don't expect much
We stayed for only 1 night as that was all we could get a reservation for. This is an old national park property. We had a lake view room which was great to view. But the room itself was very old, paint on the wall and ceiling was peeling, there were rust stains in the bathtub, and the ice bucket had dirty water in it. To me it seems that the hotel is just not maintained very well.

Beautiful location, but not much else
The location was fabulous with convenient parking. The staff was not friendly. The room was small with no AC. or hand soap. The bathroom old tub had a dirty ring and black hair. The bed was saggy and barely had room to access one side by the wall. The restaurant was expensive, but used paper plates and cheap plastic utensils. No ice machines except at the front desk.

As a covid research nurse this getaway was much needed but sadly ruined due to no communication and my room which was prepaid weeks prior being given to someone else. After checking their website periodically for a month for availability after reading reviews to book the lake view king deluxe room I finally booked after there was a cancellation but after arriving at 1030 pm saying that the room I specifically booked prior but was given away was utter disappointment and heartbreaking. I was really looking forward to seeing the stars, watching the sunrise from the room and just disconnecting from everything with a view .The staff didn’t even seem to care just said that everyone wants those rooms and switched the reason for the room not being available several times. It’s a small lodge so it’s surprising to me that they couldn’t notice that the king lake view was overbooked and would atleast have been nice to know beforehand to make other arrangements , as the downgraded room was on the other side facing the Parking lot and a queen bed that squeaked with any movement and super uncomfortable where I tossed and turned all night even after 10 hour of flights, the bed was that uncomfortable.
Just wish they communicated earlier and not “oh did no one say anything to you before you got here” , so all this could have been avoided as I literally got a flight for this specific weekend due to the king room becoming available and booking it , and the only solution provided was that the difference in rate from the downgraded room would be reimbursed.
