Had a great visit here while visiting MT. Rainier in September. Everyone at the property was so nice and welcoming and having a wood fire available in our room was great. Caution when visiting this area, there are not a lot of dining options. The great thing about this property is that you can cook if you wish, or at... More

This is a wonderful place. Stayed here in August with our daughter and her husband plus 2 children in a suite. Downstairs was a queen bed with bath, full kitchen, small living area and fireplace. Upstairs ( actually up a ladder that resembles an attic ladder) a double bed and a double platform bed with a full bathroom. It was... More

We enjoyed staying close to Mt. Rainier for our 3 nites at Alta Crystal Lodge. The fireplace felt great since it was cold and rainy end of August. We found out not to stay in a downstairs room due to the floors are paper thin so we had a lot of foot noise upstairs. Office had food items you could... More

First time visiting the resort and we had a great time. Warm reception checking in and throughout our stay. It was my birthday and we lucked with the bonfire and s'mores along with a fun time meeting other guests and the owners and a nice birthday song. We can't wait to come back and are looking forward to a winter... More

This resort was wonderful. Very small mom and pop operation. Very peaceful and the owners were so hospitable. They had a fire outside and provided drinks for everyone and the makings for s'mores. It was a lot of fun and a good way to mingle. The rooms were very clean and fully stocked. No air conditioning but had fans and... More

Booked this as wanted to stay close to Mt. Rainier to access Sunrise so only one night stay. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable on the ground floor. One bedroom, a sitting area and kitchen area. There is no air conditioning but we managed okay without it. There is a shop in reception where you can buy all sorts of... More

Very relaxed hotel- quiet setting, no one around except for the others staying there. They do a good job of making sure you have what you need during check in. The rooms are very nice- I expected something cheap looking like a Motel 6, but they are furnished and decorated even better than I would have thought. All of the... More

When we began our search for lodging near the Sunrise side of Mt. Ranier, we were a bit surprised at the lack of options. Alta Crystal Mountain proved to be a good choice for us, however. We had the Loft Chalet Suite and were surprised by how steep the stairs (really a ladder) were. We had planned to put our... More

We only stayed one night here, but could have stayed longer. It was the best part of our Seattle vacation! We stayed in a one bedroom with loft room, which had 3 beds and 2 bathrooms. Also 2 TV's with dvd players. The room was great. Clean, neat, just like home. The rooms do not have AC, but even on... More

I don't camp! My husband likes to walk mountain trails and look at rocks and flora and fauna. This year he decided Mt Rainier Sunrise entrance was our location. So I started looking for places to stay and found Alta Crystal. It was pricey, we had to prepay and even though they strongly suggested trip insurance, I got busy and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The perfect getaway for Crystal Mountain & Mt. Rainier National Park. Charming chalet suites & a romantic honeymoon log cabin are tucked in the national forest, just 1 mile outside the northeast entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park & 7 miles from Crystal Mountain and its new Mt. Rainier Gondola. Soak in our hot tub and swim in our year-round heated pool (heated to 90° in the winter) -- we're Crystal and Mt. Rainier's only accommodations with both. Fireplaces, small fully equipped kitchens and renovated mountain lodge style accommodations are perfect for couples and families. Guests love our evening activities such as bonfires, movie nights, karaoke, crafts parties, and summer barbecues. Ski, snowshoe and play in the snow in the winter. Hike, sightsee, bike, horseback ride, relax in the summer. Open year-round. ... more   less
