Great Log Houses with plenty of Beds (3) per room and a nice fireplace. Owner is a Korean family and is quite a nice person. Located right at the entrance of the Mt Rainier National Park. Worth a visit. Beds were great quality and room had microwave and fridge besides coffee maker etc. Shower is a bit small but functional...

This hotel was In a perfect spot for entrance to the park. We thought we were getting a cabin but ended up in one or the upstairs rooms. It was very large for just the two of us. It's very dated and could use a facelift. However we are in the middle of no where so what more could I...

We booked a last minute, 1 night reservation at this place on our spur of the moment trip through Mt Rainier. It was the only place with openings and it's easy to see why. The hallway leading to our room smelled pretty gross, almost like cat pee. Our room looked like it hadn't been updated since it was built. It...

Cabin was average at best. Shower was extremely small, toilet was not attached to floor very unstable, wife and I where watching TV an watched a mouse run along the edge of the wall under the bed. For 140.00 for the night we talked to owner manager and was told that was the normal, asked for more fire wood and...

Opened the door to the cabin and smelled mold. Had to open a window to be able to breathe. No toilet tissue, No place to hang clothes. Cold water barely ran out of bathroom faucet. Didn't take a shower because it looked very dirty. Bathroom commode needs to be resealed because it is emitting a terrible odor. Beds were very...

Had two cabins for 5 people. Simple yet comfortable and reasonably priced. Handy having store on site. Difficult to purchase a meal nearby so need to plan ahead. Would be good to have a table and chairs in each cabin - strangely one had table and chairs the other (with the extra bed) didn't yet there was room. Location to...

People are quite friendly and pleasant. Unfortunately the floor of our cabin sloped downward and the bed was kind of soft. Very clean and water and TV worked fine. There is no AT&T phone service and no public phone. There is wireless access.

Stayed here recently while visiting Mt Rainier NP. Couldn't be any closer without being in the park itself. Cabin was large, two beds, sofa, fridge, microwave. Fireplace, which my husband especially loved. Very nice young man in the office/store very helpful. They have snacks, water, sundries in the store, very convenient. It is a bit rustic, but that is the...

This is a great location for exploring the park but it is not the Hilton. Our cabin was clean and comfortable and 100 yards from the park gate. We had breakfast at the Copper Inn nearby and were in the park at 9 and virtually no one else was. Because of this we stopped whenever and where ever we wanted....

On leaving 1 day early I said, "I hope room 18 is your worst room" - concave mattress, shower door broken & not clean, burnt out lights, plastic bag covering smoke detector, brown smear on bedspread and more. "We're not the Ramada Inn" was the reply repeated ad nauseum. Location is the only plus and there are many other options....
