Fantastic little BNB. Very convenient to the park. We were headed south from Portland and on to California on our trip and this stop was super convenient, better than I had expected. The town isn't much to look at , so plan to enjoy the hotel and restaurant only. Service was great and the food exceptional. Beware there is no elevator in case you're traveling with someone who has difficulty with stairs.
My wife and I, after living in the Pacific NW all our lives, decided to check Crater Lake off of our bucket list. What we realized after our stay was that everyone needs to check the Prospect Hotel off of their bucket list! Clean rooms, great rates and pet friendly, our two Jack Russell's felt like guests as well. Doggy pads under the vanity and a doggy sheet for the bed. And doggy treats from the front desk! I walked them the short distance to Pearsony Falls. The next two mornings they walked ME to the falls. We had breakfast in the Hotel, best biscuits and gravy, EVER! Another consideration is you are a couple of blocks from the community grocery store and gas station in an area where it is not uncommon to drive 20 miles for these services. The history of the Hotel was alluring but the service and amenities...that was what makes us want to come back. Russ & Darlene, Kent
The good: Wonderful, friendly, personalized service. The bad: It's a creaky old house with less-than-great insulation; if any of your neighbors, above or to the side, wake up at 7, you probably will too, like it or not.
Our first b&b experience, place was clean good service, dining room food exceeded expectations. Cabin room was rustic but quiet area. Waterfall trail by the inn was unbelievable as well as the views to and from crater lake. Located 30 miles from crater lake.
We couldn't get reservations at the Lodge at Crater Lake, but staying in Prospect was actually better. It was less crowded (i.e. not crowded at all, but the lodge was crazy), quiet, relaxed, and very pleasant. There were also lovely walks right from our doorstep. If I were to do it again, I'd avoid the lodge and stay here. What a treat!
Warm, cozy, and inviting. The parlor was very enjoyable, for having coffee, a glass of wine, or a chat with other travelers. Loved sitting on the front porch intending to read, but really just watched what happened in this little town and listened to the birds. If you stay there -- and you should -- be sure to plan to have dinner there, too. Very nicely done.
We stayed here with our dog while on a road trip up to Bend. The staff was very friendly, dinner and breakfast were excellent, and the hiking nearby (walkable from the hotel) was gorgeous. We would definitely go back.
We had a great experience at the Prospect B&B. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food is good. There's a wrap around porch where you can sit in the afternoon. There are a couple of waterfalls a few minutes walk from the property, some walking trails and it's about a 20 minute drive to Crater Lake. I must warn you, though, the double size rooms are VERY small. There are no closets and not much space to store clothes or luggage. If you need more room, I might suggest the motel in the back (but then you kind of miss out on the B&B experience). Overall, we were pleased and would go back.
This is our second visit here. We stayed in the motel section which is basic but has the convenience of a kitchenette in the rooms. The location is convenient for visiting Crater Lake NP, as well as other wilderness areas. Good hiking, wonderful scenery. We took advantage of the wonderful dining room for made from scratch dinners. Food is very good and service is leisurely. We will return. Staff are all very helpful.
This was the first time for us to stay at a Bed & Breakfast. I have to say we really enjoyed our stay there. The reason for the trip was to visit Crater Lake and the staff was very informative about the different things to see and do around the area. Always very friendly and polite. Made our stay very enjoyable.
We have stayed at the Prospect Hotel twice now and have enjoyed the hospitality of the staff and the conveniece to visit Crater Lake. Both stays included an exceptional dinner in the dining room. A lovely and relaxing way to visit Crater Lake.
Beautiful location with tons of waterfalls and quick, easy hikes. Heads up though- I wasn't aware that the Roosevelt room I reserved didn't have a bathroom in the room. Short walk down the hall and I have to admit, it wasn't really an inconvenience. The owners were very friendly and made us feel part of the family. Meals were outstanding!
My wife and I stayed at the inn over the Thanksgiving holiday. We stayed in the motel section, so I cannot speak to the quality of the rooms in the hotel. The motel rooms were small but clean and provided appropriate arrangements/utilities. The food at the dining house is excellent, and we recommend dining with them for Thanksgiving, as they provide a special all-you-can-eat buffet for the occasion. Honestly, it was the best Thanksgiving feast I've ever had, although it was a bit expensive, as was the breakfast we had there the following morning. The surrounding area is also very beautiful, nestled right beside Oregon's Rogue River/Klamath wildernesses. Several waterfalls are just a 10-15 minute walk from the inn, and they are definitely worth the time, including the 242 ft. Barr Falls. Our personally favorite, however, was the smaller Mills Creek Falls. Overall, the inn exceeded our expectations, and we found the management, staff, and other guests to be very friendly. We also had time to talk with several locals, all of whom were nice, accommodating, and helpful. The surrounding natural area is definitely worth the trip as well, only a 45 minute drive (more in winter though, as road conditions can get dicey) from Crater Lake and the lesser-known Diamond Lake. And other little gems are to be found too, like the nearby Prospect Cafe and Trophy Room. If you are a hiking or nature enthusiast, or if only looking for a quite, secluded weekend getaway off the "beaten path," we highly recommend.
My mother and I had a great overnight stay in the Teddy Roosevelt Room. The place is historic, and so the rooms are understandably small. However, all the rooms and the common spaces are well outfitted with some very cool antique furniture. Breakfast was delicious (lots more options than I am used to when staying in a B&B), and Marilyn did such a great job getting everyone fed and caffeinated, even without a waitress to help her. The drive to crater lake was beautiful, didn't seem to take long at all.
My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised to find such a charming bed and breakfast en route to Crater Lake. The rooms reminded one of staying in a hotel in the late 1800s but with amenities. The breakfast and dinner meals were delicious. All of the staff were very friendly. I would love to stay here again.
A very welcoming place. One of the owners gave us with a detailed description and map of the grounds, local waterfalls, and other attractions, and all the other desk and dining staff were excellent as well, always smiling and happy to help. We stayed in the motel and were happy to have the minifridge and microwave on hand. The location is great: walking distance to the aforementioned waterfalls, as well as the local store and gas station, and an easy driving distance from Crater Lake. We ate at their restaurant both nights and found to the food to be tasty and well-priced. We appreciated how dog-friendly they are, too. Upon check-in we were given treats and scoopers, and housekeeping had already taken care of laying down a pet sheet over the bed and a pet towel for the floor. The only complaint we had was that our bed was very uncomfortable, full of hard lumps that disrupted our sleep. I don't know if that issue may be only in motel rooms, though. Our next trip is going to be dog-free so we can explore more of Crater Lake, and we liked everything else about this place so much that we're certainly willing to come back and try one of the B&B rooms.
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find this charming historic hotel while touring the Crater Lake region. The staff was exceptionally friendly, service outstanding, and both breakfast and dinner were delicious. We would definitely stay here again.
Stayed there 12 years ago also. Very nice place. The hotel rooms are just that, a hotel. The B&B rooms are in the historic building. The grounds are fabulous, the hospitality is unmatched, and the historic location is great. While we were there many wildfires in the national forest around Prospect were going on. The hotel fed the fire fighters at night on the grounds. It was wonderful.
