I chose this hotel based on its proximity to Crater Lake; it was just about 30 minutes (or 15miles) away from the North Entrance. The motel is located right at the junction of 97 and 138. If you're along 97, make the turn to 138 and the motel will be to your left. If you're coming from 138, it's on... More

Old and desperately in need of update, but cheap. This old fashioned motel is clean and run by friendly staff. Warning sign on reception that 'NO REFUNDS GIVEN' sets the standard. BUT it is troubled severely by insects. The staff do warn you about the ferocious mossies and provide citronella night lights to help you fight back. We were also... More

I have stayed here a few times over the years. There is a new owner now; very friendly and kind. The rooms have atmosphere with knotty pine walls and it's an affordable gateway to Crater Lake National Park; I think she's a little overpriced. Outside of that there is nothing special about this " corner" literally of the world. but... More

Stayed here last night on my way to and from Crater Lake. The motel room is clean and.. wooden! Even the ceiling panels! Bed and the plethora of cushions is nice, internet once it was up and working was good too since the tv only has 6 channels (not their fault being in the boonies) but it would be nice... More

We were looking for a place to stay near Crater Lake. There aren't many choices in the area and this place had pretty decent ratings, so we stayed. Bad decision. It is an old place, which is fine. A kitchenette was advertised, but in reality it is a mini fridge and a microwave, not sure if that qualifies as a... More

If you are looking for a Courtyard or even a Holiday Inn Express, this isn't the place for you. The Whispering Pines Motel is old and worn and ragged, but the new owner is really nice and friendly and she serves a nice little continental breakfast. And this is the closest place to stay on the north side of Crater... More

My wife and I stayed here the night before spending a day in the park. Great location and very clean rooms.Yes, it is a look back to the days before the Hilton and Holiday Inn, but the new owner will break her back to make sure you have a pleasant stay. The fresh baked muffins with the coffee in the... More

This rustic motel with mobile units behind it is not much to look at but if you like management that will go out of its way to meet your needs, check it out. We had just started for Crater Lake out of Bend, OR when we came across this gem. We would have skipped the motel in Bend and pressed... More

Step back into the 50s. Wood paneling on the walls and ceiling, 12" TV/VCR combo (no TV reception but a VCR lending library), mini-fridge and microwave. Sheets and towels were clean. Convienent location to Crater Lake. This is what family travel used to be like and it was kinda fun. They didn't have our reservation when we arrived but had... More
