The lodge is just short of 100 years old, has sagging hardwood floors in the rooms and the accommodations are sparse; but the history of the hotel is full of charm, and the warm down comforters and Pendleton wool blankets on the beds are cozy on cool evenings. The view from our room was of Mt. Rainier...it could not have... More

We stayed in the main, oldest, part of the lodge. A quaint (small) room with a sink, bathroom and showers down the hall. Worked great for us and the lodge and lodge lobby are gorgeous. The location is the best part as you can walk out the door and hit the trails a few feet away.

Location, staff and lobby are HUGE are the plus factors. Minuscule rooms, very high prices, and antiquated bathrooms are the negatives. Right at base of Mt. Rainier. Killer views in all directions. Lots of day hikes available. Staff was friendly, pleasant and helpful. Lobby was terrific - great place to relax and meet fellow travelers. Dining room prices for the... More

Unique set up with one bathroom and two showers for most of the hotel. Room was tight but clean. Is expect more for the money, but it is deep inside a national park. I'd suggest skipping the restaurant and bring your own food. Too much money for less than mediocre meals. It was nice to wake up to the mountain... More

There are so few hotel/motel options in and around Mt. Rainier National Park that it is no surprise that there is tremendous demand for lodging during the peak summertime months to visit the Park. However, the Park Service and its choice of Management company for the famous and very old Paradise Lodge have done a terrible job of maintaining or... More

This place is like a step back in time. The hotel feels unchanged from when it was built in 1915. My room was very small (8' x 15') but perfect for a single. It was in the original building, not the annex, so bathrooms and showers were down the hall. Room and bathrooms were clean--walls were thin, but aren't they... More

What a magical place once you understand that you are staying in a National Park inn and not downtown Hilton or Marriott. You are welcomed by a skilled staff who understand what the word hospitality means. I would suggest requesting a room on the 3rd floor which really is the main floor and easily accessible to the front desk, the... More

We stayed at Mount Rainier Paradise Inn for 3 nights as part of a trip from SF to Seattle and planned on it being a highlight. The location is first class, with, on good days - and we were lucky on two, terrific views of the mountain. We could even see it from our bed! Get a room in the... More

This is a complicated review to write. This is an incredible place and maybe one of the more under-rated national parks. (nobody I know from the East Coast ever mentioned planning a trip to Mt. Rainier). However, its grandeur is remarkable. The hiking trails are beautifully maintained and not overly crowded and the ranger talks are informative. Now lets talk... More

As with many of the national park lodges, this Inn is about LOCATION. You are literally at the base of many trailheads in a classic hotel a short walk from the visitor's center. You will likely not be spending much time in the room. The rooms are small, bathrooms outdated, but they are clean and comfy. There is no wifi,... More
