Met our needs, great location and service

3.4 on August 20, 2017

We stayed in a motel room and while basic, it was functional and met our needs - we liked how it included a mini fridge and microwave and was very clean! The owner met us when we checked in and was friendly and exceptionally thorough. It is also located near a couple of hikes that are well worth taking to view some pretty waterfalls. It's about a 45 minute drive or so to Crater Lake.

great place to stay

Enjoyed stay at Prospect Hotel

We primarily stayed at the Prospect Hotel to be near Crater Lake National Park. We enjoyed staying at this historic Hotel/Motel. We enjoyed the short walk down to the waterfalls. I had a pleasant chat with one of the owners. I would love to come back some day and spend 2 weeks there and just relax.

A wonderful stay!

We loved our stay at Prospect Hotel. The accommodations were nice, the staff was very friendly, and the breakfasts delicious. We also had dinner there one evening - it was also delicious. We recommend Prospect Hotel to travelers visiting Crater Lake NP, the nearby national forest or for a wonderful getaway.

Charming and friendly

Rooms are adorable but tiny. Walls are very thin, can hear neighbors on either side. Food was great and innkeeper was a wealth of information

Exceeded my expectations

We stayed at the Prospect Hotel while in the area visiting Crater Lake. It was in an ideal location for this trip. About 40 minutes from the park. We stayed here for close access to the park but found a gem of a bed and breakfast. We ate a good evening meal at their restaurant when we arrived. The check in associate recommended a short walk to the falls near the property. Beautiful. You must walk the 10 minute hike if you stay at Prospect Historic Hotel. The rooms were appointed beautifully. We stayed in the record room which was large and spacious. Breakfast was delicious the next day and they made accommodations for my son who doesn't eat eggs. I recommend this bed and breakfast for your stay.

Lovely Stay

We enjoyed staying here so much. Wish we'd reserved in time to stay in house, but the motel lodging was fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed our walk down the creek to the waterfall. Dinner and breakfast were lovely.

A beautiful place to stay

The Prospect Hotel is a beautiful place to stay. We stayed in the Record room which has ample room for 4 people. We ate in the dining room for both dinner and breakfast. The breakfast cook was willing to make substitutions for my son who doesn't eat eggs. We were able to use the sitting room, the horseshoe pit, and walk to a gorgeous waterfall about 10 minutes away. Although we only spent one night we were treated well and we enjoyed our experience very much.

Love Prospect!
