One of those old road side motels you stayed at as a kid on family vacation. The beds were comfortable and clean, the room was clean and shower had enough hot water for our family of 5. A large VHS library to pick from. That made my son's happy. Our price for a 4 night stay could not be bet.... More

Clean, dated with good clean beds and bath. Nice towels. Needs some maintenance, but overall a clean, inexpensive room close to Crater Lake. Overall feel of 1950's. No AC. Night is usually cool in this area.

To all of you who said there was good WiFi and "Cable TV", let me correct you as neither exists. There was no cable tv, no station available on the tv in our room #4. The wifi also did to work inside the room. When I went outside and took a seat it worked minimally. When I complained to the... More

Whispering Pines is not fancy for sure, but it'll do for a night. The rooms are reasonably priced and it is close to the North entrance to Crater Lake park. The owner is very friendly and runs a mini-market where you can buy some snacks for the road. She even bakes her own muffins for her guests for breakfast. I'm... More

We stayed one night waiting for the keys to our new house and we had 4 kids with us. We got a family room with 3 full beds and a futon. Nice to have that available. There was WiFi and cable channels. They also have a huge variety of VHS movies they loan to you at no cost to watch... More

We had to stop here in a snow storm. It was the only motel for miles. I'm not sure I would have stopped otherwise based on outer appearances. However, the owner was just a delight. She was extremely helpful and so sweet! She has a little store in the office and a little library of VHS tapes which was very... More

No reservations. Park service recommended this place. Not too bad for the location in the middle of nowhere. Fairly clean. The owner is a doll. I would agree with Mavis. See his review. Owner says she in going to renovate. Good value.

If you want to have lodging as close as possible to Crater Lake so that you can get up in the morning and get there as early as possible, your options are extremely limited, and none of them is going to rate more than one star, if that much. We read the other reviews of the Whispering Pines and decided... More

I never thought I'd be giving 5 stars for a cheap motel but Sheila and her crew made my experience here such a positive one, that I feel that I owe them at least that much. Did you ever see the film "Bagdad Cafe"? About a diner/motel in the middle of no where, run by a group of colorful characters,... More

This is definitely not a fancy hotel but a motel on the way to Crater lake but for the money you pay (around $50 bucks) you get a decent room, clean, very close to Crater lake, had some playground for my little children which they love! and a very nice manager. So yes, the rooms needs to be updated and... More
