The location of this inn is great. There are great views of Mt. Rainier from the front porch. The food in the dining room is good too and fair priced for the location. There are a ton of great trails leaving right from the inn. It is also a quick drive up to Paradise for even better views and trails on the mountain.
The inn is pretty pricey for what you get, but it is in a remote location in a historic building. The rooms are small because that is the way they were when the place was built. I like the authenticity of the place. We got a room without a bathroom on purpose since we were only staying one night and were leaving early to go hike. The bed was comfortable for an almost queen size. There is a sink and mirror in the room which was nice. Robes and slippers were provided for trips to the bathroom. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.
There are NO phones, TV or wifi at this location. There is also no cell reception either. I actually like this about the hotel.
