Staff was very friendly. The place is a bit old, but clean. It's nice being able to back right up to the motel room door and we enjoyed the selection of VHS tapes! The motel is very close to Crater lake's north entrance and very reasonably priced.

As others have said, the outside could use some work. Our room was very clean. Yes, it is on a busy highway, but we turned on the fan in the room and we weren't bothered by road noise. The drive to Crater lake was easy and didn't take long. The restaurant across the highway is excellent. We had a great breakfast there before setting out for the day. We would have eaten dinner there on the evening we arrived, but they close at 7:00. We were running late due to having to deter because of the fire east of Roseburg. Shelia is such a nice person. She was helpful in every way possible. I definitely recommend this motel to anybody who needs a clean, reasonably priced room near Crater Lake. If you need luxury, this isn't the place.

For the price--$65 at the height of the tourist season--I have to give the motel an Excellent. I suppose I agree with many of the comments of those who gave a lower overall rating, but the motel doesn't pretend to be the Ritz. Sheila, the manager, is friendly and goes out of the way to assist. Bottom line: it's a clean, friendly, fairly priced, conveniently located motel in a rather isolated part of Oregon.

1. Very affordable. 2. Very close to Crater Lake. Can't get any closer to the north rim and it is an easy drive there. 3. Nice rooms despite the outside look. Shower worked great, beds were comfy, spacious for our needs. 4. Very friendly staff, easy-going and nice to talk to. 5. Diner across the road looks rough but had good food with large portions. 6. Huge VHS collection! It was a fun trip down memory lane to look through and choose 1 to watch.

This hotel was dated but clean. The bathrooms especially were pristine. It was close to Crater Lake and one of our only options for a last minute reservation. However, we slept there on a hot July night when the windows needed to be open. Between the logging trucks driving by all night long, the train, and the bug zapper outside our window, we didn't sleep much. The beds were far from the most comfortable that I've stayed in. I hate to give the place a bad review since the owner was nice and the price was GREAT! Just make sure you are prepared to deal with not-the-greatest-sleep of your life.
