This is a GORGEOUS historic inn at my favorite place on the planet! Worth a stay- or if you're just passing through, definitely worth going inside to check it out, especially the HUGE fireplace & HUGE wood beams & supports inside the building. We've stayed at the Paradise Inn, & it was very quiet. Not open all year, as the... More

Arrived at the Inn to be greeted by dense cloud and heavy rain, thank goodness for the huge welcoming lounge and a real fire. Had no problem parking, but that could have been mainly due to the weather conditions. The restaurant was very good and all the staff very helpful. I had one of the basic none ensuite rooms which...

Well, I arrived in the afternoon and parking was atrocious. I had made a left hand turn into the visitor center parking lot and off to the right of that is the parking lot to Paradise Inn. It was all full and I mean the visitor center as well. I backed out and drove down the hill in back of... More

We stayed at Mt Rainier for two nights early September. Fantastic location, so different to what we have in Australia, and Americans do National Parks so well! Accommodation suited the environment, rustic charm, no WiFi, no TV in the room, etc. Only disappointment was the food. It was cloudy the whole time we were there so we didn't get a... More

Paradise Inn is one of the classic early 20th Century National Park lodges, located at the jumping-off point for many of Mt. Rainier's trails and climbing routes. The huge and spacious lounge shows off the massive timber construction and the huge rustic chairs and tables. The rooms are generally unimpressive and small, particularly for the price, but again that is... More

Extraordinary views when sky is clear or partly cloudy. Cozy when it's not. Walk the trails if weather permits. Beautiful meadows mid-summer to early autumn. If walking or hiking isn't an option, enjoy sitting by the wood-burning lobby fireplaces. Enjoy the piano music in the lobby before dinner. I recommend the meat loaf for dinner. Take in the ranger talks!

The lodge is a lovely historic building sitting in the shadow of Mount Rainier. The rooms are small and sound proofing is not very good, but you can't beat the views. We stayed in the annex building in a 4th floor queen room with a bath which was sufficient but tight. We had a queen bed, small desk with chair... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Paradise Inn and couldn't have been more pleased. I had read so many mixed reviews on Tripadvisor and had no idea what to expect. What we got was a stay in a beautifully built historic lodge in an amazing location. When we arrived at the park it was dark and drizzling,... More

Loved the little room with the little window mountain view. Queen bed. Sink. Needs a chair and a stool to sit in to put your shoes on. There's space in this tiny room with charm. Mr Mountain was not very shy. He was in full view most of our stay of days and days and days but not enough days... More

A room became available at Paradise Inn a week before our trip so we changed our reservations to include a night at the Paradise Inn Annex. As with the other Mt Rainier lodge in Longmire, the National Park Inn, the structures are historic. We visited a few weeks before the Inn was scheduled to be closed for the season. The... More
