The staff of this lovely historic hotel really aims to please. We also appreciated the two excellent dinners and two excellent breakfasts during our visit in September 2017.
When we arrived at 8:55, after a 15 hour, 1,000 mile drive , we were so hungry. The dining room was due to close in 5 minutes; we were greeted by a female waitstaff with a smile on her face, who graciously escorted to a table, and shared 'I hate having anyone go hungry'! This initial impression made us feel welcome and grateful. Our room was comfortable, the reading materials, and historical documentation was fascinating. Meals with generous portions of high quality, wonderfully prepared dishes. Every encounter with team members was fantastic. We loved staying here, and recommend others doing so as well. It was a great respite from 10+ hour days exploring Crater Lake National Park! Thank you so much!
Getting to Prospect was a beautiful drive. There are three waterfalls within walking/hiking distance from the hotel. The menu for dinner was very good and the food delicious. Breakfast was also great (a set B and B format). My husband and I enjoyed our very short stay interacting with other guests, hiking to the falls, and watching a football game in the parlor, which is the only place you will find a TV.
This is a thoroughly charming B&B in a rather remote part of Oregon. We reserved late so we're unable to secure a room in the main hotel. The motel rooms were fine but standard issue; decent value for the price. The host and other staff were friendly and helpful. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. It's difficult to find decent accommodations near Crater Lake. We felt very fortunate to find the Prospect.
Our prime rib was fantastic. Our room had everything we could have wanted except comfortable beds. I like a firm bed but those beds were HARD. When I am traveling the thing I want most is a comfortable bed but yours need to be replaced (in our room anyway). Everything else was great. Catherine Smoker
My husband and I stayed here two nights as a base for visiting Crater Lake. The location was excellent and the setting beautiful, and it was convenient to short hikes to some beautiful, unexpected waterfalls and the Rogue River Gorge. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the dinner quite good. The hotel public rooms have period character and are well-kept. We had a room in the "modern motel," which has not been updated since it was new. I would have been happier if they had charged a little more per night and purchased new sheets and bedspread.
Owners were gracious Hosts. They offered excellent ideas and suggestions about the area. The food was outstanding. It was a plus to be able to sit on the porch with friends and strangers and have wonderful conversations and visit.
Could hear the next door room toilet running from 130am to when I left at 430am. Couldn't stand it a moment longer. Would have preferred listening to the waterfall outside, if only there was a way to open a window that wouldn't compromise first floor safety. Horrible hard bed with crunchy mattress pad.
The hotel is very cute. Our room - the John Muir - was very nice and impeccably clean, but much smaller than I expected. Small would be ok, but there was literally no place to put our suitcases that didn't take up most of the floor space. The bathroom, oddly, was larger than it needed to be... I understand that with historic buildings the rooms are often small, but this was almost unworkable. We didn't have a choice when booked, so perhaps some of the other rooms are larger. I would suggest asking for the square footage of the rooms before booking. We had dinner at the hotel the first night, but due to the fact that there was a new chef (or there was no chef, and the owner was doing the cooking - I wasn't quite clear on what had happened), they were only offering a reduced menu. This was also true at breakfast, where you could have the special of the day (waffles or pancakes and some sort of meat and a boiled egg) or alternatively a granola parfait or biscuits and gravy. Again, fine, but much less than we had expected based on looking at the on-line menus. This is a very cute place that would make an ideal romantic weekend getaway - just bring very small suitcases!
The hotel was charming: well-decorated with furnishings and antiques reminiscent of the early 20th century. The service was excellent and the staff was well-informed about the area. We stayed in the less-expensive motel addition. The two-room suite - sleeping four - was modest, but very clean. The kitchenette was well-stocked and could have easily allowed us to cook simple, stove-top meals. We ate only one breakfast at the hotel. It was good, but the daily choices are somewhat limited.
This is a pleasant, historic hotel nicely situated between Crater Lake and Medford. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Service is friendly and efficient. The restaurant has excellent dinners. And maybe the best part of the hotel is a large, wraparound front porch with fine chairs to while away the day with a drink or good coffee. It's a good place to hang out for a few days.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This was a wonderful bed and breakfast! The people were very friendly and helpful about the area. Unfortunately, Crater Lake was socked in due to the weather, but I didn't mind one bit. That just makes an excuse to go back!
