“Getting Run down”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

This was the most expensive one night of our trip and I'm sorry to say the resort is quite run down. The lake is beautiful which makes it a real shame the property is not being maintained. At 200 a night I expected the air condition to cool the room which it did not. The restaurant was somewhat worn the food was good but not spectacular. Its a shame to see the disrepair. The only bright spot was its location near Crater Lake.

I stayed here as a last resort since the Crater Lake Lodge was sold out and I didn't want to commute 80 miles to Klamath Falls or Medford for better options. Looking back I should have done just that. This the place to go if you want to pull out your Peter Frampton 8-track tapes and relive the 1970s. That was the last time the rooms were renovated.

The shower looked like something Norman Bates from "Psycho" would have appreciated. I had called in advance to ask if they have wireless internet access. I had a conference call one morning and needed web access. I was told that they had it. Turns out that it's only operable in the lobby area, it turns off at 11P, and the connection was really slow. I made my coworkers laugh when I had to use a pay phone because of poor cellular reception. They still have several of the coin operated dinosaurs, which is in keeping with the rest of the place.

The only thing this place has going for it is location. The Holiday Inn Express in Klamath Falls felt like the Ritz Carlton compared to this place.

Quite a small room, 2 beds, TV bracketed on wall and coffee maker. Clean but décor needs refurbishment, especially the buildings outside, very neglected -missing shingles, flaking paint on some buildings.
Room very basic only coffee maker – 1 sachet only. TV had a very poor picture. Hot water had a flow limiter. Marks on wall plaster missing. Internal door had hole in it, severe scoring lock and knob hanging off as though someone had tried to break in. TV badly positioned above table so you had to be careful you didn't bang your head on the sharp corners of the TV stand. Plug sockets wouldnt take international adaptor -they just fell out so couldn't recharge razor or camera battery. No drawer space or hair dryer. Dogs everywhere some people having more than one.
Only stopped 1 night as very close to Crater Lake from which we had a long journey to Springfield, our next stop. Definitely wouldn't stay here again

We rented a 2Bdrm cabin at this resort for a trip to Crater Lake National Park this summer. Resort has almost everything you could want/need--lake for swimming, general store (100% mark-up so come prepared with your own food/supplies), boats to rent, national park nearby. Overall cabin is rustic. Kitchen was well-furnished and had everything we needed to cook our meals. Adequate # of towels for the 4 of us. When we thought the water heater wasn't working they were on it ASAP. There is also a hotel on site for those who want more "luxury".

While Diamond Lake is beautiful and is close to Crater Lake the "Resort" is a complete contrast to the area. We stayed in the motel (B21). This may have been nice at one time....that was long ago though. Over the years I have stayed at some real dives but this was the second worst ever (I won't describe the worst one). The owners totally neglect any up keep of this "resort". Hard times or not this place was very bad. Hairs in the bathroom and on the bed sheets, the reception of the tv was terrible, and filth on the rugs and furnishings everywhere. Security was a concern, a stiff wind could blow the lousy door in to our unit. The food at the restaurant is of so so quality and VERY expensive! They know they have you! I know what rustic accomodations are and we have enjoyed staying at forest service cabins and lookouts for years and roughing it. This place is a neglected dive and I recommend staying away....or expect the worst in a resort experience. Gross!

First off, when we arrived we were informed that "someone" had booked our cabin for the wrong weekend! We could have the cabin we wanted the first night but, had to move to another cabin the for the second night!
The cabin we moved to had a picnic table outside flipped upside down, we flipped it back and these are HEAVY tables. We went inside and immediately noticed the dirty floor, sat down on the couch and were met with a stench of an old worn out sofa that has seen better days. We turned on the TV and couldn't get a picture. The cabin was tacky and worn out. The cabin floor was slanted and the mattress kept slidding off the box spring. There was what we thought was a generator running for several hrs. right outside the bedroom window as well as traffic and noise all night long. Needless to say, we didn't get a wink of sleep!
When we complained the next morning we were met with an attitude at the front desk, they didn't care, oh well - too bad! All this for $189.00 per night!! We won't be back!!!

We unfortunately booked late, so accepted a "vintage" cabin. What this means is old, dirty, with very hard mattresses sitting in the middle of a small patch of weeds surrounded by asphalt. Every activity - renting bikes, kayaks, small boats was both expensive and equipment was old/broken. Activities are "on your own" - despite the "resort" description there is no organization. The staff are generally rude, except our waitress in the coffee shop and our housekeeper delivering towels. If you want to bring items to cook, be sure to stop at a regular grocery store before you arrive. The "store" was impossible. The only thing I would recommend about the hotel was the location. Too bad the owners here just don't care. It could be quite wonderful. But until things are fixed, don't bother!
