Key take away: it is NOT in a quiet location -- it is across the busy highway from a truck stop, the parking lot is shared with a gas station, and there is a major railroad behind it. To add insult, the motel rooms are not air conditioned and the hot summer evening forced us to endure a long night of trucks braking and accelerating for the truck stop.
The overall cleanliness of the room was poor -- carpets had that sticky feeling and there was trash and large large dust bunnies visible behind the night stand. At least the bathroom was adequately cleaned.
The hot-water in the building vacillated between ice cold and scalding hot -- literally dangerous while taking a shower.
The decor was sparse the with a very small TV & VCR perched atop a small shelf. There was a fridge, microwave and coffee pot.
On the plus side, it was cheep -- you get what you pay for. Perhaps the interior hotel rooms are better kept, but, don't let them fool you into thinking this is a B&B -- the meager "breakfast" of scones and juice would hardly be worth paying extra for.

We reserved the two room suite and arrived with a freak storm that knocked out the electricity in the entire town. The owner and "staff" (pretty sure they were family) were great. Gave us lamps, water, towels...you name it and brought us up to our weird and wonderful rooms...truly unique and excellently funky! Funky and weird but in a good way. The place was clean and the only think it reeked of was local history and stories of past travelers. We all loved it!!

This place is RAD! If you're ever road-tripping it and happen to go through Chemult, you need to stop here and experience the great hospitality and rooms they have here.
Upon getting our room, I asked what the history of this place was, because it resembled an old house or brothel. I was told is was an old boarding house, built in the 1910's to house the railroad workers in the area. Well, this made sense since the railroad was right behind the house about 100 yards. Very cool. All of the rooms are actual "rooms" in this giant old boarding house. They are all equipped with modern amentities such as microwave, coffee machine, tv, shower, bath, etc etc. So it's very comfy. The cool factor is that you're staying in an old boarding house with a bunch of cool history behind it.
We opted to get the best room they had with a retro Jacuzzi tub, pink with gold handles, and very deep. This tub could fit the starting line-up of the Portland Trail Blazers it's so deep! And it comes with a free bottle of champagne, which was great.
We were given a very modest rate, great service, great hospitality, and a cool place to stay. I would recommend this place to anyone!

My family stayed in the largest room that fit 8 people. There were 3 queen beds, a
plus a pull out couch. It was $109 with tax for one night. There are at least 2 other rooms that fit 4 that cost around $60-80 per night, I don't remember exactly. Check out at 11 AM.
The goods: There was a full sized fridge, a microwave, a sink area, and a tv. You can borrow DVDs from a collection at the entrance. There are two heaters that are strong. Hot water and tea and hot chocolate packets and paper cups are free next to the front counter.
The bads: Got tons of bed bug bites from the pillow on the pullout bed. The shower was incredibly hot, not easy to use and uneven spray. The bathroom is tiny; there's a shower stall, a toilet, a mirror and no sink, so you have to brush your teeth in the sink in the room. Some of the outlets were very loose and didn't work. Strong "old people" smell when we first walked in but it went away after we ate Subway that we bought across the street.
There's a motel across the street that has a room for 4 for $49 per night, but this lodge has much more accommodations.

Ok....I have to admit this at first. I wasn't expecting much when I pulled up in Chemult looking for lodging to get off the icy highway for the night. US 97 had turned into an ice rink and it didn't feel safe going any further.
When we pulled up to the Dawson House Lodge, I really just needed to find a room to sleep in. I explained to a really kind man at the front desk that I had a party of five and needed a room. He took me up to show me the 'Parker Loft' and I was sold. The room was huge, there were three beds, a TV, a couch, a table and a full kitchen. There was an attached bathroom with a decent shower.
Room rate was incredibly low for what we got. There was a surprisingly strong DVD movie collection for use downstairs, with new movies (released to DVD very recently). The staff was kind and unassuming. We couldn't have been happier.
No, it's not terribly modern inside, but it was a wonderful stay nonetheless. I can't think of a better place to end up getting stranded in a storm than here at the Dawson House Lodge. Free wifi, DVDs, full kitchen, huge room, hot shower, friendly staff. We loved it!

I didn't really know what to expect since I'd never even heard of Chemult! I just knew it was the nearest affordable lodging near Crater Lake. After a day of road tripping with my son and pup we were tired! We were greeted warmly and quickly shown to our room, which was clean, adorable and comfortable. This is not your average hotel room, it's furnished more like a bed & breakfast without the breakfast. I was very impressed!
