It was a wonderful stay!
We stayed in the rooms next to the main lodge. The room was perfect with a fireplace, The only complaint is for the prices at the bar. 2 drinks, bar whiskey and water was 22 $ The surroundings by the lake were just perfect!

My wife and I love Lake Quinault Lodge and have stayed there many times. The Lodge itself is beautiful and is placed perfectly on a majestic mountain lake. Being in the middle of a rain forest, be prepared for it to be raining there. Even if the sun is shining in Seattle, it's more than likely raining at Quinault. That just makes it more beautiful as the clouds hang low in the trees across the lake. Everywhere you look could be an oil painting. There's lots of stuff to do, from taking a guided van tour through the surrounding rain forest, visiting the largest Sitka Spruce tree (made my wife look like she was the size of a squirrel standing next to a regular tree), hiking/mountain biking the many trails, to taking a dip in the very warm and relaxing pool. The Lodge went back to having real logs in the huge fireplace. They had switched to gas for a time and that was just sad. Now there is still gas but it's burning real wooden logs, best of both worlds in my opinion. Big leather couches to sit in near the fireplace and a game room to keep kids and folks that like to play games happy, while leaving the rest of the Lodge quiet and peaceful. The restaurant gets top marks from me, although be prepared to pay top marks for your meals. Very little is under $20 per plate. A somewhat well stocked bar is out by the fireplace, so if you like your smoky scotch next to a smoky fire, you're in luck.
What else can I tell you about this place? If you've read this much of my review you're obviously interested. Go see it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Nice Place on the Lake
The hotel is pricing but seeing where it is located explains that. Very limited places to eat especially after October 31. We stayed in the boat house rooms because we had our dogs with us and we were disappointed in the bed size but the room was clean. They allow pets but after you pick up after them you have to find a trash can to dispose of it as there are no cans by the poop bags. The restaurant is pricey as is the bar, $7.50 for a bottle of beer. The view is breathtaking any time of the day or night

This place was awesome. We stayed in the new building and that was nice, clean and stylish.
We also visited rooms located to main building, they were reallyreally old!!
Sauna was akward room, it´s not like a real sauna. Pool was excellent.
Breakfast and dinner were both excellent.

High Price for Pleasant
We had one of the newer “Lakeside” rooms. It was fine and almost worth the much reduced low season rate we paid. Great staff. Larger room, good bed, couch and two side chairs. Balcony is very tiny, no table or desk, heater just kept up and never warmed the bathroom, internet is very very slow. Nice water view through the tree trunks but while Lake Quinault is certainly pleasant it is hardly spectacular or that special compared to other lakes in the state. We would never pay the high season rate. Right now, on the same trip, we are in a large, modern, beachfront room with a sweeping ocean view, kitchenette, good internet and a fireplace for 25% less than our Quinault room. Consider skipping Quinault.
