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

This is an old school byway motel. If you want a Hyatt or a Hilton, then you are out of luck because this is not that and you wont find that kind of hotel in this area. Between Klamath Falls and La Pine, this is the standard and just about all the options in the area are on par with... More

Well this is an old motel...it shows. It is 15 mins away from park entrance, but the room is just so so. Beds were old but actually quite comfortable. Shower was not the greatest. The curtain needs replaced. Loved having the fridge and microwave. No AC but they do provide a fan. It was a bit noisy. Cooled down at... More

The location of this place is great! It is not far at all from the north entrance to Crater Lake. And the owner is very nice and friendly. However, that is about all it has going for it. The store in the lobby is overcrowded and a little creepy. The rooms are a bit run down and could use a... More

The smell of the room was unbearable as soon as you open the door. No air conditioning, a fan was sitting nest to the television that did not work. I have COPD and have to use a Concentrator for breathing. The room was in no condition for the elderly with a disability. Or anyone else as far as that goes.... More

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
