Our recent stay at the National Park Inn was a relaxing retreat from everyday life. The historic hotel is nestled in a beautiful area of Mt. Rainier NP, with gorgeous walking trails right outside the door. The rooms are simple, with comfortable beds. There is no TV, which is a blessing when you are in a national park such as... More

The location and staff are great. Yes, the facility is historic, so the rooms are not large. However, we knew that ahead of our arrival. The bed was comfortable, and the view is fantastic. Lots of hiking, plus the river was just a short walk away. There is a nice sitting room with a fireplace, reading material & board games.... More

I stayed here recently for one night with a friend. Our room was compact but we had an excellent view of Mount Rainier from our window. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating. There is a great selection board games for guests to use which was... More

We had a magnificent view of Mt. Rainier from our room, but the room and bathroom are very dated and the window is small. We did enjoy our time in the park though. There are many trails with varying degrees of difficulty. The waterfalls are spectacular, and the glacial morain is huge. We enjoyed sipping wine and reading in the... More

National Park Inn at Mt. Rainier is located in Longmire which is actually 12 miles lower down on the mountain than is Paradise Lodge. We were there is April and Paradise Lodge was not yet open. We actually did drive up to Paradise but there were still a couple of inches of snow around. The National Park Inn is quiet,... More

Thank you for sharing your comments and we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and the relaxing time you spent in front of the fireplace. We believe the lack of phones, television, and internet access adds to the rustic charm of our inn, allowing our guests to have a quiet visit and enjoy the beauty of their natural surroundings...

We have stayed here many times through the years but this is the first time in about fifteen years. It is in the Mt. Rainier National Park but run by a private enterprise. You can book online and find some good offers such as mid week stay one night and the second is free. The lodge is old but was... More

I booked 2 nights at the National Park Inn and left after one. We arrived right before the dining room closed after a long day of traveling and Google misdirecting us (no fault of the Inn). We ate at the restaurant and the food was delicious but overpriced - in the end it was worth it but just barely. We... More

This is the fourth or fifth year we've taken advantage of the off-season, two-nights-for-the-price-of-one, package. The staff are welcoming and the rooms small, but clean,and fittingly furnished with modest, rustic furniture. The lounge is comfortable and staff keep the fireplace stoked when it is chilly. Small tables are perfect for staging your own snacks or partaking of the tea and... More

Of course staying near the top of the road at a place called "Paradise" seems best, but if you are visiting Mt. Rainier, don't overlook the Inn at Longmire. Although it isn't as high up, there is a spectacular view of the mountain - be sure to ask for a "mountain view" room. The rooms are basic but clean and... More

This was a nice place to stay : wintertime means no crowds anywhere, so that was nice. We stayed in room with shared bathrooms; a much nicer option then it might sound. There were a separate ladies' and men's' restrooms with several stalls each, and a dedicated (unisex) single shower room. Think: like a nice dormitory. Robes and disposible slippers... More
