Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

What a beautiful place! I had stayed at the motel before but had always wanted to stay in the actual hotel. Finally family visiting from England gave me the excuse I needed. We could have driven to Crater Lake and back home to Grants Pass in one day, but stopping for the night with you in Prospect took it from incredibly beautiful to over-the-top awesome. The rooms are perfect down to the tiniest detail (believe me it's not easy to impress someone from England when it comes to period pieces). Service was great...every request was immediately catered to. And as for the area, wow! You MUST take the walks to the water falls. Perhaps it gets more crowded in the middle of the summer, but for us we barely saw anyone else. To be able to sit in silence and take in all that beauty is such an honor. Thank you for such an incredible stay.

Stay at Prospect Hotel

We originally came to stay only as somewhere to sleep when going to Crater Lake but soon found, thanks to Karen, that there was a lot to do in Prospect itself. The accomodation was amazing, clean and comfortable, and Fred and Karen made us feel very welcome. Marilyn, the cook/server, was a treasure - truly a lovely lady. We would definitely stay here again.

A wonder in the mountains

If anyone is on their way to Crater Lake or Diamond Lake this nice B & B is a beautiful stop. They have nice rooms that are themed and their food is very tasty. The service was good and attentive.

Thanks! Great stay! Wonderful service!

Quiet Hotel and Beautiful Area

4.0 on February 20, 2017

We had a spacious room in the motel portion. The grounds were lovely, and the owner gave us a map to some local trails and waterfalls that were beautiful. There is a pizza place nearby, but it was closed for the owner's vacation while we were there.

Prospect Hotel Rocks!

The owners and staff at the Prospect Hotel are absolutely wonderful. This was our second stay there and even with minimal off season staff, the service is outstanding. Our breakfast every morning was wonderful and tailored to our needs. We enjoyed being snowed in over the New Years weekend cozying up by the fire and watching the snow fall down. This is our favorite B&B location anywhere.

Very nice stay

Beautiful property. Very friendly hosts. Motor lodge rooms were nice, and included all the necessary features. B & B rooms looked very nice with private restrooms. Great food.

A Great Place to Stay, and Close to Crater Lake

4.6 on October 24, 2016

This a cozy hotel/bed and breakfast place. The staff is always very helpful and will show you where all the interesting sites are to visit around the Crater Lake area. They made a nice binder complete with photos of the Rogue River sights and other places. They took time to show us the web cam views of Crater Lake when we wanted to go there. The breakfasts are very good and generous. The dinners are also very good. The rooms are cozy. The hotel has been restored to its 1880's looks. Everything about it was charming! No elevators to the second floor rooms, but we knew that from reading the on line brochures. Beds were very comfortable. We would definitely recommend a stay to this charming hotel.
