We were drawn to the Wolf Creek Inn by the signs saying that it is the oldest continuously operating hotel in the Northwest. It is a genuinely historic property which was sensitively restored in the 1970's. It's a good thing because the old rooms were truly tiny, barely big enough to put a bed in (they kept Jack London's room, where he wrote a story, as a display room).
Our family of 3 stayed one night on our drive from Portland to Berkeley, we had two twin beds and a rollaway bed. Unfortunately my wife's bed tilted somewhat from side to side, making her concerned she'd fall off. My bed and my daughter's rollaway were fine--mine was a simple brass bed (rooms varied a fair bit in how they were decorated).
Dinner at the inn was pretty good, the included breakfast was OK.
No radios, no TVs, no phones of the hotel's (except a historic 1970's pay phone downstairs), no internet. But a lovely pretty place in a mostly pristine setting near London Mountain, but only 1/2 mile off the freeway.
