Morrisons Rogue River Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We have gone to Morrison’s Lodge for years for the salmon and steelhead fishing. If you go the right time of year the fishing on the Rogue is great. The guides provided by Morrison’s are friendly, very capable and can accommodate anglers of any experience level.

This year my (new) wife and I were trying to decide on a unique and beautiful place to get married, and decided on Morrison’s. We could not have made a better choice. Lesley, who manages the place with her husband, was very helpful and accommodating throughout the process. We had the ceremony and reception on the huge lawn next to the river. About 35 people from across the country attended and they were awestruck by the beauty of the place and how nice the staff was. Weeks later we are still getting compliments about it.

Our wedding was in June, which is not the best time of year to fish there, but we tried it anyway and caught a few trout. It’s hard to miss with those guides. Our 20-something kids did the half-day raft trips and had a blast. They are already talking about making another trip up there.
Morrison’s is not a fancy hotel. It is a bit isolated and primarily caters to fishing and rafting.

The lodging is comfortable, but I recommend you stay away from the rooms in the lodge itself (rather small) and over the kitchen (too noisy). The other rooms are quiet and comfortable. If you want to be by yourself, check out the “tuckaway” cabins located near a stream across the road. That’s where we usually stay.

I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The rooms in the lodge are small, and the ones above the kitchens are nice. The rooms across the ro...

We spent the first night of our honeymoon here before hiking the Rogue River. They arranged our car transport, added us to their amazing dinner same day, and we stayed in a room with a view. Beds are comfy and room was great. They are close together and others without a view were not as perky but clean and comfy. Great store for items we forgot and packed lunches were huge and yummy! Can't say enough. Had bikes for everyone and so many activities for any age. What a place! Can't wait to come back with the kids!

Our 4 day rafting trip started and returned to Morrisons Lodge so it made sense to stay there the night before for the highly recommended rafting company's orientation. A few important things to note.
1. There is no cell phone service. Not a fault of Morrisons but you will need to drive 15 minutes for service.
2. There are no restaurants or convince stores within walking distance so if you don't pre arrange dinner at Morrisons and you don't have a car, you're out of luck.

3. Since our one way car rental from San Francisco to Grants Pass was expensive, the staff at Morrisons put us in touch with Sharons Affordable Car rental service who dropped off our car in Medford for about $30. The same company drove us to the Medford airport when we were done rafting. This worked out well. Also note that the Enterprise Car Rental office in Grants Pass closes Saturday at noon and Sunday.

4. If you like a traditional American meal with sugary bread and bland vegetables and more sugar sweet dessert you'll enjoy the 4 course meal.

5. Because of our car rental issues we were grateful to have stayed at Morrisons but if you don't plan ahead you may stay in the very small room in the main lodge.

Overall Morrisons is a very nice rustic lodge which was part of our wonderful Rouge River experience. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

We stayed here one night prior to a lower Rogue rafting trip. It was perfect for our needs. We were in one of the cabins. The accommodations are rustic (as in kind of old but not fashionably so). This is the only place to stay within about 45 minutes. Parking was beneath the room. My guess is the rooms are set up above the parking spaces as flood protection during the winter months. The grounds are beautiful with Rogue River activities-swimming, rafting, fishing, stand up paddleboards, horseshoes. I saw a tennis court and basketball hoop. The lodge is on a bend in the river which provides wide slow moving water.
The food was great (it should be noted that we had river lodge expectations - this isn't the Ritz-Carlton) We ate dinner the night we arrived and breakfast the morning we departed to go down river. The lodge appeared to offer all kinds of guided river trips - fishing, rafting, kayaking.

This would be a great place to stay for a multi-day fishing trip or a summer getaway from it all and go rafting. I had virtually no cell service. No wifi.

We spent an afternoon and night here. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was in the lodge above the kitchen area. Lots of noise from the kitchen and outside areas until 11pm. Started in again around 6 am. A cabin might have been better except there was a lot of highway noise. Rafting and fishing seasons were still going strong. Our bed were two twin beds pushed together with a "patch" joining the mattresses causing a high spot in the middle. Glad we were here only for one night. The best part of our stay was the relaxing grounds and dinner outside on the deck.

Room Tip: Room 1 or 2 in the lodge or take a cabin

We recently spent three nights here because we wanted to fish the Rogue. First: the fishing experience, which we arranged through the lodge, was outstanding. Our guide Pablo was the consummate expert, and made the two days' fishing the best it could have been (even in 100 degree heat). We also appreciated his encyclopedic knowledge of the river and its history. Second: the lodge is in a beautiful setting on a fabulous river and we count ourselves lucky to have gotten to see the area. Third, some of the people working at the lodge are terrific, and do a hgreat job. All of that being said, though, the food and lodging part of the stay was rocky. We stayed in a cabin, which was one room containing a bed, sitting area, desk and sink, with the rest of the bathroom separate. It was above the carport, so it would not be suitable for anyone who has trouble with stairs. It looked to have been decorated in the early 1980's. To turn on the air conditioner, you need to crawl under the desk and squint at the controls. The TV is an old CRT model; we never turned it on, though. There is no wireless in the cabins, just a wired connection not usable to those of us with tablets, although I could get a weak signal outside on the porch. Neither my cell phone or wireless hot spot would work, although that's Verizon. But if connectivity is important to you, you may want to check with your carrier. The first time I used the shower, a clump of black hair floated off the drain. The first time I pulled the covers back (late at night, unfortunately) the sheets were not clean. There was, and probably still is, someone's dirty Kleenex in the bedside table. There was mildew around the tub.

We bought all of our meals from the lodge. Breakfast typically was a good buffet, albeit sort of expensive unless you are a huge eater. Shore lunch was OK; one day the kitchen forgot to put anything on one sandwich and carefully wrapped two plain slices of plain bread. Dinners, which are on a rotating menu with a choice of two proteins each day, could be better conceived. Potato soup and mashed potatoes in the same meal? Risotto and rice in the same meal? Swordfish and tuna in the same meal? They also could be better prepared. One night, our scallops were undercooked to the point that we were unable to eat them. Our server disappeared for about 15 minutes and then cleared the untouched scallops without any comment. We later told her why the scallops were uneaten; she blithely said that the chef always undercooked scallops. There was no adjustment to our bill.

In a rustic fishing/rafting camp, you can get away with outdated none-too-clean accomodations and mediocre food. If you want to be something else and charge accordingly, though....

We stayed here prior to a rafting trip in June, based on the recommendation of the outfitter. We were so pleased that we went out of our way to go back on our trip to drop off our daughter at college. (Fortunately, our visits were before and after the fire.) We had a cabin in June and a lodge room in August. Both worked out well. Very nice location. Dinner was top notch (I'll write about it in a separate review).
