We stayed in the older section of the hotel. The room is tiny (and so is the bed - be small or very friendly with your traveling companion!). There is a little sink in the room but you share the 2-stall, 1-sink bathroom with basically the entire hotel (including lobby guests). Not bad actually, but in the morning tbh it... More

Our family of 4 stayed here in August for two nights in a 2 room unit with it's own bathroom. We were on the first floor. I believe we were in the annex. As all the other reviews have stated, the walls are thin and you can hear everything (such as people walking in the hallways and above you). And... More

As stated the walls in the main lodge are thin.When I say thin I mean you could hear people talking in the rooms next to us. These were normal speaking voice not yelling. The newer sections might be better. Aside from the walls the lodge is great. Piano player after dinner in the great room, food was good in the... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the Paradise Inn. The great room is lovely and a wonderful place to meet other guests and relax in front of the huge rock fireplaces.

Almost everyone sees Rainier from the north because of the location of Seattle and Tacoma relative to this great National Park. And they remark on the beauty. Little do they know that this is the ugly side! On the south side of the mountain you have the Paradise Inn at Mt. Rainier, seasonally open, amid the verdant wildflowers of the... More

We had a wonderful time at Mt Rainer Paradise Inn,rustic beams, large fireplaces, and great talks by the Rangers. Early morning photos were awesome, and alot less tourist. By noon, there bus loads of tourists everywhere you go.

This Inn is located at about 5500 feet. (The mount is 14000) so aaaalmost halfway if you hike up a bit. Gorgeous place and views. It was so quiet up there and i can only imagine how the stars would look! I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here or at least stop by for a quick visit.

I love this hotel! This was our second trip to Mt. Rainier and we were able to stay a bit longer this time. We had these wonderful plans of climbing the mountain and doing a bunch of different trails and the relaxing in the hotel, unfortunately we had a bunch of rain and fog the whole time of our stay....

This is a difficult review to write. Although the room was rather primitive by modern hotel standards I really enjoyed our stay there. First, the location, surrounded by the natural gardens on the slopes of Mt. Rainier, is stunning. You enter the lodge through a dramatic lobby with massive beams framing the tall ceiling. On each end of the room... More

While the rooms are tiny and not comfortable for relaxing in...the lodge more than makes up for it. The huge open seating areas with private areas tucked up above and the two huge warm fires at either end make it a wonderful place to just relax and hang out. That you can bring your own food and drink into the... More

We ate at the restaurant in Paradise Inn while on a day trip to mount Rainier. The Inn itself is beautiful and had awesome views of the mountain. The restaurant was not very crowded the day we were there And we were seated quickly. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We found the food mediocre at... More
