The building looks old but has been gutted & rebuilt. The lobby and exterior look like they did 90 years ago. The food is expensive but good. Our room was small but faced the lake. We did not have a shower in the claw foot bathtub because we arrived late. so call ahead if this will be a problem. no phone, no TV. Cell phones work here and ther on the property

This place is magical. Historic & majestic. We loved the combination of the beautiful views of Crater Lake (like nothing I had ever seen before) and the restaurant in the Lodge was just wonderful. Some of the best dining I have ever had in Central OR.
Atmosphere historic & unique. Service attentive & friendly. We brought our own fab bottles of Pacific NW wines and paid a corking fee. The apps were excellent & teh main courses were all just fresh, beautiful & flavorful. Desserts were divine AND cocktails were great to!
Go here to soak in the natural beauty of that beautiful, pristine, cool clear, blue water & relax on the veranda with a before dinner cocktail. Then on to the dining room for dinner. Maybe a cognac by the fire after in the main lobby. Get reservations as his place is always booked up.

Crater Lake Lodge is one of those mandatory experiences. I've been to the park three times before but was never able to secure a room. Staying overnight really enables you really explore all the hikes, ranger talks, and other activities without feeling rushed. In regards to the few negative reviews, if you come here expecting a Westin or Hyatt, you will be sorely disappointed. Remember, this is a historic 95 year old lodge. It's like taking a trip back in time with no televisions, internet, or in room phones. It was refreshing to sit by the fire at night, play board games with the kids, and meet some of the other guests. My only mild complaint would be the restaurant. Of course it's overpriced since they have you captive, but the service was unbelievably slow. If you have reservations for the boat tour, plan accordingly!

At the Crater Lake Lodge, you pay premium prices for the ability to stay right at the lake in a fabulous national park. The lodge itself is fairly no-frills: No TV, no phone, no cell phone signal, no internet, no newspapers, no air conditioning. Our room also didn't have a shower; only a tub, making it very challenging to wash my hair. Apparently some rooms have showers, but I don't know if it's possible to specifically request one of those. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The sink had a very low-flow faucet, which took about 15 seconds to fill a small water glass. They emphasize being "green", but the sink goes too far. Their "green" emphasis is also perplexing when they don't offer a shower in every room. The lodge fills up well in advance, so if you think about going there, get reservations early. You should also be aware that reservations only guarantee your quoted rate for the first night. They can go up on all additional nights, and did when we stayed there. We didn't eat at the dining room because it seemed overpriced, but appetizers, soups and salads, and desserts are served in the Great Hall. I'm glad we stayed there for this trip, and I'm glad we paid extra for a lake view room. But it's not the kind of place I would go back to.

Overall Crater Lake is stunning, go there if that is your thing ... but is only worth staying in the lodge if you get a lake view room. Otherwise you are paying a lot for nothing very special

We booked 2 rooms over the internet in March for 4 people to stay 2 nights. We feel we paid a lot for really rubbish rooms in a poorly equipped badly maintained hotel with some very poor staff.

To balance this hotel location spot on - if you get the right room it would be great. Restaurant staff good though, meal good, and hotel manager excellent.

Crater lake was off the beaten track. We drove 200 plus miles to get to this national park, and when we arrived we were allocated really small rooms, which overlooking car park with one queen bed for 2 people. We paid $180 for this and when we questioned the shared queen bed for our 2 teenage daughters the check in staff member was rude and lied to us. She told us all of the rooms types we had paid for were one bedded, this turned out not to be true. Some of the $180 rooms have 2 queen beds. Complained to reception manager, he said nothing he could do that night but would sort it out next night, another lie ... the place was fully booked and allocated there was no way he could change our rooms. We had a totally sleepless night in a scruffy, cramped room with no air con. later we complained to the overall hotel manager. He was very professional and gave us a 20% discount on the night we had spent and we booked out early and left for Bend (which was a fantastic place ...paid $120 for much better twin bed rooms including breakfast)
