We had a great few days at this wonderful old lodge, however, come prepared for the uber small room, the shared showers and bathrooms, and the expensive dining room vs. snack bar available. Still lovely, though...the atmosphere was awesome with a great fire crackling in the lodge size fireplace morning and night, a 4 hour piano player on the hand... More

This hotel is old, but beautiful and full of history. Go for convenience! Don't expect a large, resort like room, don't go for your room at all, go for the beauty of the outdoors. The food is all mediocre. Pack a cooler of food and drinks, snacks, and maybe a blanket to picnic outside as tables are limited. Enjoy the... More

In a nutshell...you are paying for location. And what a location it is! By the lodge's own admission, these rooms are antiquated and small, walls are thin. But the beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the staff is delightful. The annex rooms are tentatively slated for renovation in 2017. No WiFi or cell service. The historic old lodge... More

I have wanted to stay at Paradise Lodge since I had dinner there in the 60's. We are making a four week National Park tour and this is our worst experience. Knowing and appreciating history aside this room was so small you can lay in bed and open the hall door and bathroom door from bed. Window screens were on... More

Before all the drama . .I would recommend Paradise Inn. Let's start with what they do not have: wifi, room thermostats, flat screen, telephone, hot tub, pool, etc . .and no . . your iPad nor cell phone will not get service here. The walls between rooms are fairly thin. Bring ear plugs . .it is impossible, to leave your... More

There is no question that Paradise Inn is in a superb location. Mount Ranier is an awesome sight to behold. The hiking trails are superb and the meadows beautiful . If you are interested in hiking, then this is the best location. Sunrise is also beautiful, but does not have any accommodation in the National Park. Unfortunately, the Inn does... More

I felt like I had traveled back in time at Paradise Inn. The lobby with the "Lincoln Log" beams and over-sized hand-carved wooden furniture is rustic and playful. Expect large crowds and lines for food, drinks, and souvenirs. The rooms are small and basic with decor that is reminiscent of summer camp. With the plaid wool blankets and rustic desk... More

The Paradise Inn is one of the grand, old National Park lodges. The impressive log building is located in the Paradise region of the park, near the Henry Jackson Visitors Center. The inn is only open seasonally due the area's annual average of 600+ inches of snow. Entering the huge, open lobby, you see the brilliant engineering of the open... More

I actually served as assistant manager of Paradise Inn from 1964 to 1966. As a school teacher, it dovetailed well re scheduling. But just think, that aside from a few supervisors, the staff are all summer hires,, mostly from colleges. Training is about 1 day or OJT. The lobby has kept its charm. The original rooms w/o bath were last... More

Staying at the lodge was fine. I know that some people have complained (guess they didn't read the room description before they booked). I hope that the rooms are not renovated. They would lose all their charm. Yes, our room was small but it was quite clean and comfortable. Love that we were able to open the window for the... More
