If you want to stay on the north side of Crater Lake and can't get into (or afford) the lodge, there are not a lot of choices. The Dawson House Lodge is a mixed bag - I liked the old fashioned aspects like keeping reservations on a paper calendar and the owner/manager? was very friendly and helpful. I also liked... More

Loved the accommodations and the close proximity to Crater Lake. The hotel has such a wonderful history. We had a great nights rest and the host was very friendly. The bathroom was clean and each room was decorated differently which gave it a homey feel. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would come back again. The general store next... More

It's small and you'll miss it if you blink, but it's a great place for the traveler stopping for the night in between destinations. It's quaintly furnished, the room had a queen bed and a twin bed, great for families. The office offered DVDs to use in room.

I had the family suite. It was totally awesome! It had 3 double beds & a pull out sofa so everyone in my party had there own bed! The room was very cozy & quaint. It reminded me of a country cottage...right out of a Thomas Kinkade painting! The owner was extremely accommodating & friendly. I would highly recommend this... More

Room had some intriguing furniture with definate pioneer suggestion made out of pine logs but the bed had a very comfortable mattress. Similarly the room was fitted... More

Sort of a retro - lodge. A bit over priced, but that is not a big problem. Actually, not a lot to choose from in this area. Owner was very nice and the roof was very clean. If you are heading north from crater lake, this is a good option.

This place is definitely not for everyone. It is a 1929 boarding house, somewhat modified to be a hotel. The decor is straight out of a second hand shop or flea market. We stayed in the Rose Room on the back of the second floor. It was very quiet. Amtrak runs behind the hotel, but we only heard two trains... More

The modern world bypassed this hotel and that's exactly what I liked about it. Chemult is admittedly a tiny way station on US 97. Many trucks pass through and it is surrounded by deep forests on both sides. The hotel fits right into the town. Rates were reasonable, the rooms were clean if a bit outdated and well-used, and the... More

The hotel resembles as such a old model from outside, but has all good assets . Nice bed which is made of wood logs .Good for a night stay..but if you are a light sleeper and can wake up for small sounds, then your sleep is out as it is right next on the High way which would definitely disturb...

Awful place, unless you like truck spotting at 3am! I don't know how this place can be described as 'homely' or 'rustic' - it's a shack at the side of a main highway, opposite an all-night and day truck stop. Note the quality and cleanliness from my pictures. Cat biscuits in the room - see owner's response to another review... More
