Stayed one night, after staying 2 nights in another nearby cabin that had horribly soft beds. Yes, we fled here out of desperation, but were enchanted. It was my birthday, so I really enjoyed being able to sit on the porch and gaze at the majesty of the mountain. The room itself was small, yes, but very clean, especially the seemingly newly renovated bathroom. Really appreciated the bathroom! And the bed was comfortable. Slept like a baby with the windows open, enjoying the fresh air. Excellent experience all ‘round. We will definitely return!

Great place for lunch in the park.

We came to see Mt Rainier & decided to have lunch at the Inn as we passed. The building itself is something to look at with its full front porch & rocking chairs. The restaurant section is fittingly decorated to make the atmosphere mesh with the park setting. Our service was great & the food was good. We both had the cobb salad but also the cornbread appetizer which was topped with honey & served in a small cast iron fry pan. Very good...I do not usually like cornbread! The prices were what we have found in other parks....more than we spend at home but not outrageous.

Room was catastrophic

First of all: The service was fine and friendly. So this low rating is not about the service team but about our room. Said room (22) is way to loud to find sleep at night. I don’t know what kind of pipe is crossing this room or its wall but this is not acceptable for the price we paid. This was by far the loudest room I’ve ever had to sleep in. I am okay with small sized or badly equipped rooms but this was the top of Mt Bad. I think this must be the soundscape of a big ship’s engine room. No need to tell I was not able to sleep a single minute and was glad to leave the next morning. You can’t sell this to anyone. Honestly. So the two points are for service and the cleanliness and the view of the terrace.

Very noisy room right above the kitchen

The kitchen loud fans made our room feel like we above a train station. Our experience in the dining room was mixed. Our first dinner terrible. The fried chicken was fried twice as long as it should have been and was very dry. The spaghetti with marinara sauce was mainly noodles and with dry chicken meatballs. At breakfast the following morning, we had to wait almost an hour for our meal to be served. The next dinner was better, the hamburger and Caesar salad, except they forgot the croutons. I don't expect luxury in the mountains, but for the price you pay I expect them to try harder to make a pleasant experience for their guests.

A small room with shower and toilet down the hall. No wifi or cell phone coverage. Nice, nevertheless. Was very quiet our two nights. A little warm with no air conditioning but was fan in the room. Location is very pretty. And the drive to Paradise is only a few minutes. Nice restaurant in the lobby.
