This hotel is a rustic inn within the park's boundaries that provides easy access to trails and natural sights. It is in Longmire, which is much less hectic than Paradise (30 minute drive up the mountain) and there is plenty to see here (a suspension bridge, old original log buildings, a flat interpretive trail, a river). We enjoyed the drive... More

The National Park Inn is located in southern Mt Rainier NP and is a very nice looking hotel. Staff are nice and very accommodating, especially when the kitchen is closed. The rooms are quite cozy and not ideal for a family of four unless two are small children.

No internet. That's fine with me but what about people who depend on internet so badly?! It's nice there is no internet for a while but to some people that's tough. They should try to install wifi! Other than that, the visit was great!! So many trees and so many places to visit! So beautiful :)

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and agree it is a beautiful location. We believe the lack of phones, television, and internet access adds to the rustic charm of our inn allowing our guests to have a relaxing visit and enjoy the beauty of their natural surroundings...

It was more than we ever expected! Drive was long from Seattle. Make sure you are gases up and have good snacks for the kids! A lot of construction from bottom west entrance, however it went much quicker than normal.

I recently had the opportunity to spend 3 nights by myself at the National Park Inn. My husband was climbing Mt Rainier so I the days to myself. The staff was so friendly that I knew them by name at the end of my stay. The food was good but over-priced. I usually avoid eating dinner alone, but the waitresses... More

If you're looking for a hotel with AC, WiFi, cell phone coverage, and a TV, this place isn't for you. However, if you'd like to experience what a hotel was like before everything was "connected" then you might like this. The accommodations were clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was fine. The wool Pendleton throw on the bed... More

Since it lies within a remote wilderness location, do not expect this inn to provide many of the usual amenities American travelers are used to. The rooms are quite small and undecorated, and have no air conditioning, TV, wifi, microwave, refrigerator or other such modern conveniences. Some have shared bathrooms. However, going to Mount Rainier National Park to watch TV... More

The lodge is historic and quaint...imagine stepping back in time! The staff were so very friendly and helpful. We had a delicious dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. The covered porch with the dynamic view of Mt Rainier was a wonderful place to relax after our strenuous hike. Our room was clean and comfortable with an amazing view of the... More

When Paradise Inn is not open or sold out, it's a good place to stay. If you can't stay at Paradise Inn, I would recommend the National Park Inn, but I would also look at other options in Ashford, WA. It is nice to wake up, grab a quick good breakfast in their restaraunt and get going. I think it's... More

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
