We booked a 3 bed log cabin for 5 people (2 kids 3 adults) and they charged $10 extra per person (2 of us were charged extra) which I don't understand as they were 3 full size beds to fit all of us. The room was very spacious as it has plenty of room in the middle to play board games and such. Our room (#5) had a fridge and a microwave. It was cute but we found a dead bug on one of the beds and spider/spider webs on the log ceiling. The shower was nice with plenty of hot water and enough "power" but the door for whatever reason still leaks water onto the floor even when it was shut completely. So after 2 people had showered there was a huge puddle of water and completed soaked the floor mat. My bed squeaked very loudly whenever I moved so it was very annoying. The cabin is the closest to the entrance to the Park entrance, however that is still a good 20 min to some trail heads at the National Park Inn (I will probably stay there if I were to go again, as we spotted a few deer just grazing right in front of the Inn's porch- with beautiful view of Mt Rainier. We sat there for a good hour to relax after our hike). The cabin was a good 45min away from the Paradise Visitor Ctr., and most trails were still covered with snow and none of us had the proper gear to hike it. The lodge at Paradise is probably most centrally located to go either east or west. The Park is enormous and I feel like we spent a lot of time in the car the first day just to get situated.
