I stayed here for 2 nights because it is close to Crater Lake. Close in the sense that I could be at the Cleetwood Cove Trail in about 45 minutes even while observing the speed limits. It was also an opportunity to visit the past. It is a real old school motel which I found clean and comfortable with a... More

Our reservation that we made two weeks ago in Chemult didn't go through and we found ourselves roomless in the Oregon wilderness at 10pm. Added to that, we went the wrong direction when leaving Crater Lake and had no wireless service with AT&T. When we got cell service, we entered an abandoned campsite area with cell service and called hotels... More

We were rambling southward toward home in Central California after our oldest daughter's wedding, and called ahead based on Trip Advisor reviews and the motel's proximity to Crater Lake. The motel is several miles south of Chemult, right at the turnoff to the northern entrance to the National Park. We were greeted by a woman and a younger couple, all... More

Nestled in a non-descript area between Chemult and Crater Lake lies an easy to find and humble motel. We were greeted by the local friendly cat who also functions as a security guard. Sheila, the owner, is a delightful, friendly woman who works exceptionally hard to ensure the maximum comfort of her guests. The rooms are modest with character and... More

Yes the room is rustic but clean and the owner is so helpful. She talked the owner of the restaurant across the street into staying open to make us a hamburger. Inexpensive and value for money. Beautiful scenery at Crater Lake.

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
