I do not understand the positive reviews that this place has. Yes, it has history and yes, it’s a mom&pop establishment, but that does not compensate for the fact that I smelled cat pee in our room. Everything looked tired from the carpets to the décor to the bathroom. The bathroom carpet even had residual strands of hair on it…... More

On a spur of the moment we decide to travel to explore Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Looking on line at the Dawson House Lodge, we saw photos of vintage furbishing in the lodge but were directed to stay in a more typical motel room on the side of the Lodge. The furnishings were sparse but clean. The room... More

This is your great aunt's house....the great aunt you never see, but you spend one night at her house while on vacation. It is described this way because the furnishings can be quirky/interesting and the outside needs some upkeep. but don't let the outside prevent you from spending the night. We were in the "Cowboy room", which had a comfortable... More

Old house so expected rooms to be worn. Clean room. Really nice staff. Easy load/unload luggage since able to park right outside downstairs room. Discounts to local restaurants & free bags of ice next door at deli. Nice staff at deli/market place next door. A little longer drive than expected to Crater Lake N.P. but not bad and prices lower...

The proprietress, Colleen, and her extended family of Dawson House Lodge, supplied us with all we could have imagined possible, and more. The family was helpful, gentle, and smart. They helped make our trip to Crater Lake National Park wonderful and unforgettable.. No traveler's problem was beyond their capability. The family grocery next door helped stock our cooler with nutritious... More

Even though it is an old house (almost 100 years old), it does not smell like an old house. Very neat, and clean, with a rustic stile bedroom/bathroom. An apple cider that an owner has offered us was delicious. Overall it is a very cozy place.

We stayed in the loft room overnight on a trip to Crater Lake. The room is spacious with AC and a full kitchen. The decor is a bit unusual in places, but the room was clean and the owners friendly. Great proximity to Crater Lake.

Found this hotel as a cheap alternative to staying closer to Crater Lake. The staff was friendly and we got a great deal. Cozy office lounge with free coffee and hot cocoa. DVDs to watch as well. The rooms were small but clean and the bed was comfortable. The only complaint I have is that its right on rt 97,... More

We stayed at Dawson House Lodge on our way to Crater Lake. We were able to drop off our luggage earlier than the check in time, which was really nice. The woman that checked us in gave us a brief run down of the room and was very nice and friendly. We felt welcomed to make any needs known. The... More

I'll have to add to the rave reviews here. It's old, it's interesting because it's old, creaky, and solid at the same time. My only gripe at all is that Room 1 is a bit near the road and a touch noisy, so if you are sensitive, ask for some other room. Me? I sleep like a rock, no problem.... More
