Paradise Inn is placed in one of the most stunning locations I have ever visited. We were here in the last week of August, and the Paradise area of Mount Rainier National Park was simply superb. We had spent the beginning of the day in the Ohanapecosh area of the park and got to Paradise in the afternoon. Parking can... More

One's first impression of the Paradise Inn is one of bigness. The immense lobby with its great tree-trunk columns and open-beam ceiling is a very impressive example of the rustic style of architecture. On arriving at one's room, the exact opposite impression is given. Our room was so small that the bed could be accessed only from one side, and... More

This inn is quite comfortable especially considering how high up Mt Rainier it is. We traveled there with our 11 month old son and it was quite comfortable. We saw a deer right outside our window and had a Mountain View. The scenery isabsolutely stunning.

Paradise Inn is a prime example of the old western national park lodges. Built with large logs, it has a big, open lobby with beautiful light fixtures. Couches for visiting and side tables for cards or board games. No TV's or WiFi here. There is a restaurant and gift shop. We decided to cut costs by staying in one of... More

We have stayed at the Paradise Inn a number of times over the years and always enjoy being on "The Mountain". The Inn situated at 5,400 feet is little different from when first built in 1916 the same year the National Park system was established. The Paradise Inn sits within Mount Rainier National Park amongst some of the most spectacular... More

We had an amazing weekend at Mt Rainier but it was because of the amazing mountain, not the Inn. The service was fine at the front desk and housekeepers. The service at the dining room was hit and miss. Breakfast was good. Dinner was okay (except they forgot my husband's order) and lunch was awful. The food was over priced... More

The location of the inn is perfect. Like other national park accommodations, the rooms are sparse. Ours also smelled a bit musty but we could open the window, insert a screen and let fresh mountain air in. I wasn't too happy to be on the first floor - until my husband told me to look out the window as a... More

This place is magnificent and a must stay/visit if planning a trip in or near Mt. Rainer. Built in early 1900's with lots of charm. They have a beautiful dining room that serves three meals a day and is delicious. Hiking trails up and around glaciers start right outside the entrance. We loved every minute.

View was great, Room was dated and needs renovation(which they plan in 2017). The restaurant at the Paradise Inn on Mt. Rainier had a very narrow menu (which they blamed on their local sourcing...pure excuse), but the biggest problem was the VERY small portions of food, and at least TWICE the price as other comparable restaurants. One of our meals... More
