The views from the resort are great. The access to the lake and the little beach are great. The boats and services around that are very serviceable --don't expect valet service, but good service. The restaurant food was a lot better than expected. The condition of the restaurant, however, was another story. The window sills were covered in bugs. the interior is dated. I'm not sure what decade I was in there...certainly, it was decorated in my lifetime, but likely when I was still in diapers. The motel here was very depressing. It smelled like people had smoked in this place for decades, leaving that tell-tale smell behind that only a demolition could get rid of. People probably hadn't smoked there in a decade, but it still had an aroma. The quality of the bedding and beds made us pull the sleeping bags out of the car and sleep on top of the bedding rather than in it. Very creepy. The shower was pretty good...but that was about it. I could probably write a horror novel about this place.

I'll start with the good. The staff, both front desk and our waiter/watress were all very friendly and eager to help and inform. The service was good. The food (we had breakfast and dinner) there and both were good not great food. A standard but broad menu and the food was satisfying and prepared well. The other good aspect is that the resort is very close to the national park for easy access(mins away). Also, the resort sits right on the lake which is a nice view and access to the water sports. The lodging options seem to come in three styles. There are a few cabins which were built in the 1940s (literally), then a number of cabins built decades later, a motel style building and a new 'delux' two story cabin on the lake that looks very new. We stayed in the 1940ish cabin. I wouldn't recommend staying in those cabins which are in need of considerable overhauls. The one we were in should be shutdown until the basics are taken care of. Both outside and inside of those original cabins needs a great deal of work structurally and for what is in the inside such as the bedding, etc. I can't speak to the other cabins or motel rooms, but both of those look newer from the outside. The place was packed, I think due to the proximity to the National Park and that there are no other options to stay near the park.

Diamond Lake Resort is definitely a good location when going to Crater Lake from the north. The only other option is Crater Lake resort which is a bit pricey but also very hard to get in. That said, this place does leave something to be desired. It was clean and righ ton the lake but very dated. Rooms in the hotel park are fine but the bathroom with no door is strange. They did have a nice restaurant. It worked for us.

Rented bikes from here, 2 bikes were new and ok, but initially rented a broken bike and replaced by a barely functioning bike after. Not safe for children or the elderly. Per the workers (who were friendly and bump them up to 2 stars), bikes regularly brake down and are not properly maintained. Was then ripped off at the gas station, insist to watch the meter.

We stayed at Diamond Lake Resort this weekend. Diamond Lake is beautiful. The resort was built in 1922. The lake is surrounded by pine trees. It is close to Crater Lake (within an hour). The accommodations are a little rustic. We ate at the lodge restaurant 3 times. The food was good. The staff was awesome- super friendly & attentive! We really enjoyed our stay!
