Wonderful home base while you explore Mount Rainier and surrounding area. We had a one bedroom suite. Very clean amenities. "Trivia Night" held by the resort was fun for the kids and taught us a lot about the surrounding area before we took some beautiful hikes around the mountain. Staff was knowledgable and very eager to give advice about the... More

This was a wonderful place to stay with great rooms and facilities; the owners and staff were more than friendly and helpful. First we received an upgrade to a larger room; since we arrived early we were given a key to use the recreation lodge for the short time until our room was ready. The first night there was a...

The resort is located deep in the woods ( ;)) near the Mount Rainier National Park. We stayed 2 nights in a Loft Chalet Suite and we enjoyed every minute of it. The first evening they had a barbecue with a bonfire which was nice and tasted very good. The small shop offers everyting you need from water, soft drinks... More

I, along with my wife and our 3 children (ages 16,18,20), stayed at Alta Crystal for 2 nights. We absolutely loved it! The owners, Vivian and Steve, were super friendly and hospitable! They hosted a bonfire, complete with s'mores and a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Also make sure to go to the trivia night! It was a blast!... More

Rustic retreat which is a great centre for exploring the Mount Rainier national park. Good walks from resort. Handy shop on site. Nearby road can be a bit noisy. Cabins comfortable if a bit rustic. Staff friendly and helpful

We spent 2 nights in a cabin and enjoyed our stay very much. There is only a few places you can stay in or near the wonderful Mt Rainier National Park and the Alta Crystal Resort is to be recommended. The staff was very friendly and the location amazing, in the forest, a few steps from trails and minutes from... More

We booked the Alta Crystal because it was close to Mount Rainier and some of the hikes we'd planned. Stayed three nights (you pay in advance, so it was a done deal). Found some aspects we loved...and other ones we didn't. What we loved: its location nestled in the woods, and get togethers both on the lawn and around the... More

Our family of 5 loved our one bedroom plus loft. The owners gave great hike recommendations at the nightly bonfire (amazing in itself!), the staff was great, and the pool was the perfect place to unwind after great days in the area. The accommodations were great and clean. If we make it to the area again (I hope), we would... More

We recently stayed 4 nights in a one bed lodge. Booking from the UK made it difficult to really know the area and where we would actually be. There website was accurate - It was a great location for our visit to the national parks and were able to have some amazing hikes from Paradise, sunrise and Naches. The scenery... More

Absolutely horrible customer service. Advertised dog friendly and when we got there they said no dogs. We specifically chose a pet friendly resort. So they said they have dog only rooms and those are booked. We said, ok no problem can we pay extra, an extra dog fee? NO. We said we will keep them in the car. They said... More

cadematoWashington, Owner at Alta Crystal Resort at Mount Rainier, responded to this review

When we saw this review in August 2015, we were surprised as this guest stayed with us back in February. We did not that they had run a B & B in the past. This made us even more surprised. It would have been so easy to avoid any sort of problems just by reserving a dog-friendly suite. If you... More
