My wife and I highly recommend Crystal Resort. This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff were able to direct us to wonderful areas to hike and explore. Room was clean and very comfortable. The group activities at night were great fun. We will be back.

Room Tip: All the rooms appeared great. Our room was next to the office, but we were never disturbed.

Alta Crystal is a great place to stay. The hosts are so warm, friendly and really go out of their way to make your stay special. We booked a night on the spur of the moment-we got lucky that something opened for one night. The location is outside the park, but you really feel like you are inside as you are surrounded by forest. I would definitely recommend the BBQ -very good food; good value. Everything is very clean and cozy. They definitely have paid attention to details. Good location for ski resort and hiking anywhere in the park. Would love to return again someday.

Had a greAt 4th of July weekend here! Amazing BBQ and sparklers for the kiddos and adults. Nice pool too that my sons loved after hiking all day. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much for your friendly atmosphere . We also played games in the game room and had s'mores every night. Nice place to relax at after enjoying Mt Rainier.

Was the best place we have stayed at in years. Wonderful service, very clean. Property landscaped beautiful . Staff friendly. The heated pool was kept extremely clean. They have lots of activities and games to help you enjoy your stay if traveling with children. We will be for sure returning to stay here again.

I wish I could give this resort a higher rating - our chalet suite was comfortable and the location near Mt. Ranier was excellent. There are very few nice properties near the park and this was probably one of the nicest. The grounds are lovely and the staff was very helpful. This is a nonsmoking hotel, but our suite smelled like heavy smokers had just left because of the fireplace. I'm sure many guests use the fireplaces during cold weather stays (firewood is provided) and the smoke has now coated the walls and upholstery. Ask for a room on the second floor; we heard every footstep from the room above us.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor.

Just finished a 2 night stay while visiting Mount Saint Helens & Mount Rainier. Perfect location, beautiful property, friendly very helpful staff and our chalet loft accommodations were perfect. There were beautiful trails leading from the property and the hot tub was a great way to finish the day. If we are ever in the area again we will certainly stay here again!

This is a great place to stay if visiting Crystal Mountain. We stayed here back in March for a couple days while learning how to ski (first timers) and the staff could not have been more helpful. Our room was perfect. Everything one could ask for in the kitchen and it's great that you can pick a couple cold brews at the front lobby store after a long day on the mountain. People were swimming in the heated pool (our room was next to the pool) and they all seemed to really be having a blast. My brother and brother in law came down from Seattle on our last night and we had plenty of room. Now they would also like to return to Alta! They asked how did we find such a perfect place! Would definitely stay again.
