We stayed one night at this so called "resort" on our way to Crater Lake. Let's point out good things first - the lake and its surroundings are GOURGEOUS and the place offers plenty of activities for kids. This is about it.
The room we stayed in was smelly, we were given 4 bars of soap in the bathroom and no shampoo or anything else. The beds (1 queen and 1 double) were cramped together and there was no air conditioning (granted, you don't really need it there, but anyway).
The restaurant was closed on Tuesday when we stayed, so we had to eat at the cafe. It was terrible - service and food both. Let's put it this way, it is a first time in my life that i was served ham&swiss sandwich with yellow (probably american) cheese.
As previous people noted, this is one of the only handful of places to stay near Crater Lake, so I felt kind of tricked into staying in that dump, thanks goodness only for one night.
FYI I don't think Crater Lake lodge is much better - it definetly is much prettier place with spectacular views, but service there is horrendous. We wanted to eat breakfast at their restaurant. After arriving, we waited about 10 minutes for anybody from the stuff to even talk to us, then we were directed to wait for the hostess, who didn't appear for another 20 minutes and TOTALLY ignored us standing right in front of her stand. After finally getting her attention she REFUSED to put us on the list, saying that it was 10am at the time and the breakfast runs till 11am only and she had other people to sit (mind you, plenty of tables were open in the dining room). After that, I am sure the hotel service is not much better.
