This is the place to stay--PERIOD!
The lodge is beautiful with stunning views of lake. It is the s absolute number one place to stay and even though expensive--you can have a great experience with a one-night stay. Just get there early the day of check-in.
Book and enjoy!

Loved every minute of it.
This is a lodge I had always wanted to stay in, so when I was planning out our Oregon trip, this was the one place I really wanted to book. I booked two nights in a lake view room. I booked it the moment the dates opened up a year in advance. We were in a top floor, corner room, which the front desk manager said was the room view they had. He was right, the view was amazing. The fact that there is a padded cubby area you can sit on right up against the window made it all the better.
The bed was good (not great), the size of the room was perfect, the tub/shower was old school and cool. There is not AC in the room, and being August and actually warm the fist evening we were there, caused some concern. It was a non-issue. The windows open and are screened. We had the windows open and the room was very pleasant.
The location speaks for itself, the building is amazing, the front desk was excellent, the dining tool was good for breakfast (the service there was "fine"), the porch with it's rocking chairs was wonderful and the common area with multiple fireplaces was excellent.
It was not inexpensive, for sure. None of the NP Lodges are cheap and I wouldn't expect them to be. It is a treat to stay at these historic places in prime locations and I expect to pay for the location and history, if I choose to stay at one.
I'd do it all over gain in a heartbeat. I loved the place.

Best National Park room
Our favorite stay in our month long road trip! Room was adorable! We were on the top floor so our room had slanted ceilings and a window seat overlooking the lake. The tub was the old claw footed type. It was very clean and the quietest National park room we’ve ever stayed at. We also had a good meal with hazelnut bread pudding. We saw amazing stars around 10 pm. I actually saw the Milky Way with my bare eyes - first time ever!

Not good value.
Expensive, over-priced, lacking in in-room amenities. I gave it 3 stars because I thought it would be rude to give it less, even though it deserves less. On the positive side, the room was neat and clean. I guess one pays for the experience of staying at Crater Lake. Pretty pricey experience.

Beautiful lodge, with a stunning "back yard"
We recently took a road trip from our home in Utah to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. This is a fairly remote destination, and so there aren’t other options close for accommodations. We found that our room was comfortable and adequate for our needs. As we’ve sometimes encountered in isolated places, we did not have access to refrigerator, TV, or microwave. Considering the location and the beautiful scenery at hand, we were not inconvenienced. It was not a hard trade-off for us to be so close to such stunning sights.
The lodge was built in 1915 and a wing added since then. It is an older style National Park Lodge, so is beautiful, with lots of wood and a rustic charm. They did have an elevator and accessible rooms for those with limited mobility. The lodge staff were helpful and friendly, and were also informative when we had various questions. The room was clean and well cared for. It was quiet in general, except sometimes the older styled doors close loudly—another very minor issue. We enjoyed our stay there, and especially the proximity to the things we had gone there to see.
