  • Great location, room needed a little maintenance

    by TessPiggo on 2017-11-15 04:48 am

    This lodge is set in a stunning location, hence the room fees. The advantage of staying in the park was why we stayed in the end. The staff were relatively friendly initially but when we complained about our breakfast experience they were not interested in the slightest which was very disappointing. The room was nicer than expected though the bathroom and sink area really needed some maintenance. The soap dispenser had come off the wall & needed fixing and the bathroom needed updating and thoroughly cleaning. We'd stay again but only for the location not the facilities. We did have breakfast but this was a very poor experience - we had to wait a very long time for our food and when it arrived the pancakes were not cooked. These were sent back, my partner finished his before we received the replacement which again were not cooked. In the end we left them. We couldn't say the staff had been particularly good on this occasion.

  • A Crown Jewel Of The National Park Service!

    by SFOTravelers on 2017-11-14 03:29 pm

    For my 60th birthday, I wanted to do something unique and go somewhere that truly inspired me. I had visited Crater Lake before, but had never had a chance to stay at Crater Lake Lodge, which is considered one of the "crown jewels" of the National Park Services lodges. And my spouse really wanted to see Crater Lake as well. So I decided to plan an entire trip around a visit to the park.

    I booked our reservation eight months in advance, and was lucky to get the last room available for the last week of September (the lodge normally books up about a year in advance). We got one of their loft rooms, which is two levels and features two queen-size beds.

    We arrived on a perfect, warm cloudless September afternoon. And of course that first view of the lake will take your breath away. Especially when it's seen from your hotel room.

    The positives of the hotel are that, after a major renovation about 15 years ago, the hotel is comfortable and provides all the basic amenties. The public areas are majestic and retain most original design aspects of the lodge. The staff are AMAZING! It appears they love working there as much as their guests love visiting. They are very helpful with special requests and providing information about visiting the park.

    The only reason I can't give it five stars: The loft rooms are their most expensive rooms, and are unique in that they have two floors. But even though it was late in the season, with snow on the ground and the temperatures dipped into the 30's at night, our loft bedroom was very warm all night long.

    Even though we left our windows open the entire stay, and had our fan on high-speed the entire time, the room was uncomfortable. This is probably due to the location of the lofts, on the very top floor of the hotel, just beneath the roof. As the heat naturally rises during the day, it makes these rooms unusually warm.

    We didn't complain, as we knew there was nothing that could be done. It was just a feature of a 102 year-old hotel. There is no air conditioning, which would have helped. But as the lodge is only open five months a year, that wouldn't make sense.

    Another thing we missed was having a shower in the bathroom. The loft bathrooms feature a beautiful antique claw-footed tub, and are very charming. But there is no shower head attached to the tub (which one usually finds), so our entire party of four adults were required to take baths. Which proved a little time-consuming.

    If you are going to visit Crater Lake and spend some time, you should really try and stay here. If possible, get one of the king-size lakeview rooms (they usually sell out first). The loft rooms are great for families or couples.

    Even though it wasn't the most comfortable of rooms, the ambiance and the staff more than make up it.

  • Magic

    by George W on 2017-11-10 01:46 pm

    The Crater provides a stunning location for any hotel but I do think the Lodge carries its end of the bargain. Nestled on the rim of the crater the lodge is just what you'd expect of a "lodge," complete with the smell of a burning fire, big wooded lobby and social spaces, friendly clientele and plenty of room to comfortably relax and take in the view. We were thoroughly impressed. The room was fine, not necessarily super special, but plenty good enough for me - might be due for a reno. Definitely no concerns about cleanliness. I would return and recommend this location in a heart beat.

  • Fall road trip to Crater Lake

    by dottie575 on 2017-11-08 10:46 am

    The experience was a amazing. We did not dress for cold weather . when we left sunny Grants Pass to road trip to Bend Oregon. After getting to Crater lake close to sunset, we hiked around the lake while still light. We were cold but had a warm car to warm up in. But, the glow of the lodge made it look warm and inviting. We could not resist to go eat there. Wine and dinner by the fire made it hard to leave. The food was so good, employees wonderful and atmosphere made it irresistible to stay forever.

  • ... next time without snow

    by hotbath on 2017-10-31 07:44 am

    The Crater Lake is fantastic. But only if you have nice weather and without snow. It was our second time there with snow. All paths were closed in June. The lodge has renovated rooms and an overnight stay is always a great experience. You can find a good food selection in the Lounge. I wouldn't wait for a table in the dinning room. The Lodge is very well booked. Next time, we will go if there is no snow ....
