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

Don't let the look of the place take you off guard. It is a old building but with character. The room was nice and clean. Had two beds and a good bathroom. We were on our way to Crater Lake, well this is the place to stay for the night. Everything you would need for one night is here. It... More

I stayed in room #2 and did not experience the "sour aroma" that many other reviewers noted. The motel is a mix of new and shabby furnishings. New: curtains, carpet, mirror, and decor pillows. Shabby: tile counter, brass light fixtures, bed pillows. No A/C, but the fans were plenty adequate in September. Fridge and DVD player in the room. One... More

The welcome was kind and efficient. The lady took us to the room to ensure that Things were OK.. Did your grandparents ever have a guest room? Then it might have looked like the one we had in Dawson House Lodge. Funny old furniture and quaint pictures on all the walls. Not very big and not that comfortable, but a... More

We stayed one night in the Rose Room on the way to Crater Lake National Park. There's not much choice in lodging or food in this area and most of the time the lodge in the park is booked up and also very expensive. Our stay was okay, a large room with jacuzzi tub. The owner was very nice.

Room was horrible. For some reason keeper put so much air freshener just before we arrived - we had to ventilate room for several hours and still had some headaches because of strong smell in the morning. We originally reserved this place for two nights but decided to leave after the first one.

We were not expecting a 5 star hotel, but the value for money was not there. First impressions were the place had a bit of that country charm and we gave it a chance. There was a definite sour aroma that makes any weary traveller cringe. There were pieces of food in the pan scrubber from previous guests. Staff was... More

We stayed at the Dawson for two nights in the Cowboy room. The room was very clean and very cowboy decorated. I loved how we got personal service from the owner, wish I could remember her name. She handed us the room key and then walked us up the inside stairs and showed us the room. She asked if we... More

We rented the upstairs room which has an air conditioner. It was not functioning correctly and would not get the room below about 85 degrees. It was miserable until about 2 a.m. when it finally cooled down with the sliding door open. The truck stop next door is very busy and there were loud trucks and motorcycles coming and going... More

I am sorry that you had a poor experience at our Lodge. We were unaware when you checked in that the AC was not working properly in the Loft. We repaired it when it emptied and have since purchased a second air conditioner for the rear of the Loft. If someone has to have AC and would not want to... More

Location near Crater Lake National Park was excellent, and provided a convenient and far less expensive alternative to the lodges inside the park. Also, in talking to the current owner (very friendly & helpful), I learned that under the prior owner back in 2009-2010, the property went into foreclosure due to the recession. As a result, it was not in... More
