The rooms are glorious and we were welcomed warmly into this comfortable small hotel. The reception room is a highlight - much more comfortable and attractive than the usual functional motel reception. The rooms upstairs are beautiful but those downstairs are comfortable and have everything you need. Closer to the road can be a little noisy, particularly when trucks park... More

I decided to stop here and spend the night during a recent drive from Dixon, California to Yakima, Washington. I read the reviews online and stopped at a couple of the hotels that are right there on highway 97 prior to confirming with this hotel. I'm so glad I chose this one! It is more like a bed-and-breakfast than a... More

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

chemult, Owner at Dawson House Lodge, responded to this review

Unsure where the cat pee comment comes from, I have had no guests with cats or any pets in the room before your visit and reviews written by guests right after your visit have not mentioned the cat pee smell that you complain of. I have had no other complaints on the room that you stayed in Motel 3, when... 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
