Rain Forest Resort Village
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Quinault
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We stayed here on a trip to Olympic NP with our 2 boys. Lake Quinault is beautiful and the staff here were very friendly and helpful. We were in room 8 on the bottom floor of an old 2 floor motel. The building is old and the rooms dated, but clean and well equipped. It is the tradeoff for staying in such a remote area, and was a lot cheaper than the Lake Quinault Lodge. The beds were very comfortable, and the Salmon House restaurant across the street was convenient and delicious, with great sunset views. The motel is very convenient to the south shore trails, and the nearby Quinault Merc has great food and supplies. We enjoyed walking along the shore and just enjoying the ambiance. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: First floor is convenient for luggage - no elevator, and view of the lake was still great

Needs some updating is an extreme understatement. Basically a fishing lodge that hasn't been updated since about 1950. I recognized the sink from our old house - built in 1951! Dark paneled walls, including bathroom. Had a small TV, but DirecTV kept going in and out. "Front desk" is the gift shop located next toor, open only 9-9. Worst of all was the smell and dirty carpets that seemed to be embedded with mud. Ventilation (no A/C) limited to small sliding panel in wall. Would not pass code requirements in many cities; electric in bathroom had a snapping sound and a couple outlets did not work. Most of the furniture is vintage garage sale.

The issues would probably not be as significant if there had been a little less rain, and we had been able go out and enjoy the scenery.. Setting is Lake Quinault in the rainforest, which is quite remarkable.'

I would recommend camping over this hotel.

My room was located in the Village Inn on the second floor. Although a little dated it was clean and the bed was comfortable. A small fridge would have been useful. The view of the lake was lovely and my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The room rate was about right for the location and time of year.

I have actually stayed in nicer motels to be honest. We were in a Village Inn room, and I can't recommend it. The room was clean enough, but the musty smell hit us the minute we opened the door. It was a warm afternoon, and we couldn't even air the place out because the windows don't have screens! And we couldn't just open the doors because there were so many mosquitoes! Granted this is one of the cheaper choices in the area, but it still felt way overpriced for me for what we got. You would at least think they could provide a mini fridge and microwave. The view out the front windows would have been lovely, but there is a street that runs in front of the building, and a Forest Service truck was parked between our windows and the lake. On the plus side, we liked the two room layout. That was about all we really liked about the room. There are some other plus sides to the resort in general, which saves it from even a lower rating. The little store is nice and really well stocked. The big grassy area was a great place for the kids to play, and they ARE right on the lake after all. Can't argue with that. (Although the Village Inns room are across the highway). We also had a GREAT meal from the restaurant. The bacon wrapped scallops, grilled salmon and blackberry pie were all divine.

Room Tip: Village Inn has musty odor and lack of fresh air.

We booked a village inn room with living room and our one night stay was not bad. We really enjoyed the private balcony and the view of the lake.The Salmon House and a convenient store are just a few steps a way.Yes, the Inn needs updating but I thought it was a great value especially because of the view. We slept fine here and didn't hear any road noise and I am sensitive, we stayed in peak season too. Didn't see many cars driving on the road at night. We did the rainforest trail and the Ponytail trail and both were gorgeous! The Quinault Loop drive was very nice too. You are going to love the Quinault valley. We will be returning to explore more of the trails in the area.

Our room was clean, if a little on the small side but the view and scenery more than compensated. The lake was so convenient for a quick swim. The restaurant was just across the road and the shop very close. I only wish that we had been staying for longer than one night . For such a good location I'd say the price was about right. .

Older motel with several kinds of accommodations. We had a 2 room 'suite' with the front room and deck facing the lake. Comfortable. The bed was very comfortable as many guests have asked the owners 'what was the brand of that mattress' as we did. The other choices of rooms are free standing kitchenette type units that sleep a family. This motel would be my number 1 choice if return to Lake Quinault.

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd floor room with a deck. Lake views are great.
