Great place to stay for 2 nights. Clean and very friendly staff. The location is 10 minutes away from Mt.Rainer Park entrance. My only complaint is that you are not going to find a good place to eat close by especially for dinner :( .. I' m sure that nobody wants to drive 30 miles back to find a decent place to eat. At the resort, they sell groceries but highly expensive, is not worth it. My advice is that take your own groceries with you and cook. The resort have a BBQ on Thursdays ( of course you have to pay for it) but is an alternative if you want to take a break from he kitchen 1 night. Other than that everything was just fine.

- The perfect getaway for Mt. Rainier National Park and Crystal Mountain.
