This large, plush hotel resort complex is on a beautiful golf course; with a spacious, inviting lobby, and off the lobby is a very nice restaurant and bar with huge open picture doors leading to the charming terrace patio by the golf course!
While visiting Crater Lake in mid- July, almost all the lodging around the area was occupied. So, my wife and I were lucky to be able to book
3 nights at the Running-Y Golf Resort (Holiday Inn) in Klamath Fall, some 45min drive away!
Our room was quite plush, spacious and very well appointed; the queen size bed very comfortable. The provision of both FIRM and SOFT Pillows was a welcoming feature! The bathroom was very nice and spacious, too. Free WiFi everywhere.
The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. They gave us directions to various local attractions; helped us with printing out a document, as its business center did NOT have a printer.
In this hotel resort, we enjoyed walking on the trails around its beautiful golf course, where
many kids were having fun biking around, too. We also had the best tasting "Prawns over Pasta" ($18) in its nice restaurant, and enjoyed our happy hour drinks in its comfortable patio overlooking the beautiful golf course. The wait staff was very pleasant, but the kitchen could not keep up with the orders, thus a long wait for food!
- Along the drive to the hotel, there were another restaurant/bar and a market store. Next to the hotel was a large complex of beautiful condos (and timeshare), where there was a very nice pool and spa, which hotel guests could also enjoy. By the way, this gorgeous, relaxing resort was quite popular for fishing activities, too, besides golf!
From here we drove to visit the magnificent Crater Lake (See separate review). It was a nice, 45min scenic drive to Crater Lake. The small town of Klamath Falls
was only 10min drive from the hotel. The town was rather small and old. We had dinner at one of the two popular Mexican restaurants there, the Palacio. The food was OK, service adequate, nothing special. It seemed to be more popular for parties and music.
We love Running-Y Ranch Resort, and would go back there next time we visit Crater Lake. Based on what we read on TripAdviser about lodging at the Crater Lake complex and in nearby towns, my wife and I would rather stay here at the Running Y.
