Beautiful Park and great weather.
The room was clean and spacious enough for two people. The problem was check-in, which was suppose to be 4pm. First time we tried to check in they said come back in an hour,ok no problem. So we went hiking and exploring and came back around 7:40pm. The room was still not ready and we were told to come back in an hour! Apparently they were waiting on clean linens.

No paradise at Paradise Inn
Very disappointing stay. As per another review, check in time was to be 4 PM. Each time we stopped at the desk to see if the room was ready, the desk person had to run down the hall, look in the room, and run back to the desk. They did this multiple times for all the guests whose check-ins were delayed. We were not able to check in until 6:30 PM. Fortunately, we had read somewhere to reserve a table in the dining room upon arrival. We were able to snag a 5 PM dinner while we continued to wait for a room. The food, thankfully, was good. When we finally got into our room, the beds had been made and carpet vacuumed. The wastebaskets, however, were overflowing. The sink was dirty, there was no soap, no cups, and only one bath towel. The shower is European style so the entire bathroom floor gets wet. Be advised there is no special parking for overnight guests - so if there are a lot of visitors and you have to park in the lower parking lot, you will have to hoof it up to the lodge with your belongings. Breakfast is not provided except for a very few grab and go items. We left the next morning as soon as we could. We love Mount Rainer but will not be returning to the Inn.

National Park Nightmare
Thoroughly disappointed with our stay here. Check in time was 4 pm but our room was not ready . We expected to wait just a few minutes, but it wasn’t ready until 6 pm! Completely unacceptable. The dining options are abysmal. The dining hall is open from 5 pm-8 pm with reservations. The reservation slots were booked by 5 pm. There is also a small cafe that sells prepackaged food and drinks. So if you don’t get a reservation at the dining room, that is your only other option. It’s supposed to be open until 9 pm. However, on the night we stayed, it inexplicably closed at 7 pm with no sign or notice, leaving those without dinner reservations with no food options. The room was tiny and the shower situation was awful. A low shower head and freezing cold water even when left running for a few minutes. After ice cold showers, I finally figured out that if you position the water temp knob in the middle, you could get barely lukewarm water.

The Paradise Inn is fairly typical of a National Park inn, no elevator, no WiFi,Tv or A/C but the lication and views cannot be beat. Mount Rainier is right outside the door! They do supply hair dryers which I did not expect and had extra pillows which I did not expect. All the trails there were still snow covered in mid-late June hut the temperatures were pleasant and the trails from the Nisqualy entrance to Longmire were fine. Woul definitely stay there again!

Beautiful old world inn. Still in grest shape. Excellent food in dining room. Large gift shop and good grab snd go selection in cafe.
We had a two double bed room with private bath. Bathroom was very small. Shower was tiny. We've stayed in these types inn's before so we expected this but still very small.
