We stayed in the Marymere section. We did not each in the dining hall, we had brought our own food. There is no air conditioning, but the place is pretty quiet. Most people turned in early, so we were able to open our windows which cooled the room quickly. There is NO microwave (if you need to heat food), even in common area. There are NO washing machines for guests. As we have been journeying for some time, these two things would have been helpful for me. Only one thing concerned me--my check in person asked me how I was, I said fine, and asked how she was. She told me she had the flu {!?} She said she wasn't used to weather and they leave the front door open a lot so it was drafty. I didn't know quite what to say....surely not the flu? She was European so I am thinking it was the wrong word choice?

What a fabulous setting. It’s rustic but so lovely. We could have stayed here for several days. Get there is time to enjoy sunset and a cocktail on your porch. The lobby is beautiful and a fire going in the fireplace. Front desk was very helpful on things to do and see in the area. Dinner was very nice and the crab Benedict in the morning was delicious.

We stayed in the historic lodge with a room overlooking the lake. It was picturesque. The old lodge is so cozy and warm. We loved it, even on a cool rainy evening. The food is descent, nothing to write home about, but overpriced. But there’s nothing else in the areas, so... We loved our stay here, and were only sorry it was one night. Would have loved to stay longer!

This another of the amazing Nation Park lodges, built in the early 20th century. I've been told the lodge rooms aren't very good, but there are lots of cabins, and my favorites are any of the 4 Roosevelt cottages. We'll find out tomorrow how the restaurant is, but I'm already a bit skeptical since there is an inordinate amount of quinoa featured in the menu items. Not much of a fan of quinoa🤣

This is an outdated, poorly maintained, and badly managed property on the shores of Lake Crescent. The natural surroundings are lovely, of course, and would perhaps be worth a day visit to enjoy the lake, but the accommodations are basically dingy motel rooms/trailers (minus a phone, TV, or WiFi) that should cost a fraction of Aramark charges. We arrived on our first night to a dark, dirty, and dank ground floor room in the Pyramid Mountain building (the worst of the building, it seems), with a mold-covered shower curtain, cobwebs under the bathroom sink, and a rattling and noisy ice machine located just outside the entrance to the room. We could hear the neighboring/upstairs guests talking and stomping around as if we were in the same room. Our “partial lake view” consisted of a enormous tree trunk directly in front of our windows. Worst rental room experience I’ve had in recent memory and left a bad taste in my mouth for the rest of the stay. We did appreciate some the front desk staff’s efforts to help us find a different room in the Singer Tavern cottage for the second night, which was slightly more charming, had a better view, and a lot more light, but sound transference issues were equally bad. Dining at the main lodge was okay. Breakfasts were decent, and definitely superior to the dinners (and much more reasonably priced), but overall, it was a very underwhelming experience with inconsistent and slow service, and much left to be desired.
