It's basically like camping in a cabin, in a building with an overpriced restaurant.
We reserved a "waterfall" or "canyon" view room. We got to look out at the rooftop....
No wifi on the property whatsoever. Sure, it's quaint, but for the money, not worth...More
Everything was fabulous! The room was simple but so special. The food, the setting, the cave right there and beautiful surroundings, it is just about the most perfect place on earth; a touch of heaven. It was truly spectacular and memorable, a dream come true.
My husband and I have stayed at several historic hotels through the years and are sad to say we were disappointed with the Chateau. First of all the fire sprinkler retrofit, which had to be done, was installed haphazardly. Little effort was made to conceal...More
We loved this lodge. We stayed at six historic lodges on this trip, and this was one of our favorites. It's very old, very wooden and creaky, and full of history and charm. If you are looking for fancy and modern this is not it....More
The lodge may be old and tired and in need of some TLC...but it was still a grand experience. The lobby is exactly what you would expect from bygone eras. Lots of big comfy couches and chairs, lots of dark wood and and good books...More

Jeanette is correct -- your best bet is to contact the hotel directly; their phone # is 541-592-3400. They have a pretty comprehensive website, easily googled "chateau oregon caves." I don't see anything on it about current renovations -- but, because it is high in the mountains and they have a very short season, from May thru Sept, they're always fixing something. I highly recommend the Chateau; it is well worth the drive up the mountain.

This is a multi story building set against a hill, which explains the answer provided about what is located on each floor. The 'main' floor (which is actually the 4th) consists of registration and a large lounge area, and apparently a few rooms (I would contact the lodge directly to confirm this, as I was told no rooms were available on this level). It is 3 steps up from parking. The majority of bedrooms are located one or two flights up a staircase. The restaurant and the cafe are located one level down from registration. There are no elevators. There is a slope walkway (pretty steep if you are in a wheelchair) from parking to the restaurant level, and it is outside. Additionally, the vistor center, trails, cave, etc, are all up hills and / or stairs, although I believe the visitor center also has a ramp. One other thing to be aware of: in order to actually enter the cave, you must be able to 'duck walk' at least 10 steps. None of the brochures I saw indicated that. This rule holds even for the 'easy access' area touted for children and less firm. Since I had an ankle injury when I visited, I was not able to pass this test. It is a pretty area, but that is what you will see from the convenience of your vehicle and from a walk into the lounge area of the lodge. This is the least accessible national park I have visited to date. Again, I would direct call the lodge and also the visitor center and ask the people with 'boots on the ground' about availability, as facilities may have been added or modified! Happy trails!
