Pros: (1) extremely helpful and friendly staff (especially Stephanie at the restaurant!); (2) cozy room, comfortable bed, and clean bathroom; and (3) conveniently located next to trailheads.
Cons: (1) a bit pricey; (2) no WiFi or cellphone reception (which, depending on your outlook, may be a good thing); (3) the food at the restaurant was just so-so (but the service was superb).

Historic, good location, but service not up to snuff
Clean, quiet standard national park rooms (no TV, wifi or phone, which is fine). Good location on the south road in the park, on the way to Paradise or Ohanapecosh. Ranger station next door which is helpful and it has a very small exhibit area. Front desk staff was lacking however, not familiar with computer system, tasked with more than one job (in what appeared to be a management economy move), not really conversant with the environment (national park) they were working in. On site restaurant is good in terms of variety, service and price. Extensive gift shop next door.

Loved the historic charm of this hotel and the rooms
We loved this hotel for its large common room with two huge natural fireplaces. The restaurant had some lovely views and the food was great. Like all national park lodges, this was a bit pricey but was a nice place to stay. We would have liked to have a coffee maker in the room instead of having to get dressed and walk so far to the cafe and buy some. Also if you have large suitcases, most of the rooms with bathrooms are up or down stairs.

Quiet, Clean Inn
We usually stay at Paradise Inn but it was booked so this is our alternative. Rooms are larger and nicer than Paradise Inn. Older folks stay here so it is very quiet. They offer free coffee, tea & scones in the afternoon. Free coffee and tea in the morning. We find it better to eat all meals in Paradise Inn so we just drove up 30 mins there to have our breakfast and stayed there for dinner. Location is much better at Paradise Inn but if you cannot find rooms there, this quiet inn will please you.

Lodge with great view
Staff were welcoming and friendly. Room was a twin with a toilet and tub. Room was basic but did the job. Had a great view of Mt Rainer out the window. Lodge location was great with a short drive to paradise to access the trails. The verandah was nice to sit on to capture the views and chat to other travelers. Restaurant was cosy and had a good selection of meals. We ordered a lunch pack to take with us on the trails. Sandwich was fresh.
