Our group of 6 enjoyed three rooms in this renovated historic hotel in Marblemount, the heart of the North Cascades. Rooms and most importantly the beds were very comfortable, clean, and quiet. Breakfast was just fine (which is all I expect in a continental breakfast included with a room), and there were several good restaurants within a stone's throw of... More

On the outside I must admit I thought this place was old, however it was suited to the town,. Once inside we realized that the rooms had been renovated and beautifully decorated. Everything we needed was there including a fridge and a continental breakfast in the morning.

We are bicycling touring in the northwest. We have stayed at numerous family owned motels such as the Buffalo Run Inn. They range from the abysmal to the top notch. This rates with the better rooms. The positives: clean property and room, good water pressure in sink and shower, pleasant smelling building with no musty odor, walking distance to several... More

Thank you for the great 4 STAR review! I am confused about some of your statements! The eggs are supposed to be hard boiled, but you didn't say what the problem with the eggs was! All of the mattresses in the hotel are Sealy Posture Pedic mattresses,and we always get positive feedback on how comfortable they are! We are a... More

Good place for an overnight stay if visiting the Northern Cascades. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Restaurant serves excellent food in a friendly but professional atmosphere. Special praise to the proprietor, Marshall, who located an expensive item left behind and forwarded it to a future booked hotel, without complaint. Would happily stay here again if in the... More

For a small-town hotel on the outskirts of a national park, it is really a great find! We stayed for 2 nights - one in an upstairs hostel room and one in a downstairs standard room. Both were great - clean, nice beds, etc. Upstairs had a lovely shared space and very well kept rooms - much more than we... More

We chose this place to stay based on it's location convenient to North Cascade National Park. The check in process was in the restaurant across the street, but was smooth and speedy. Our room had a fisherman's décor, and it was funny that even the toilet seat was decorated with fishing lures. The room was very large and even had... More

Thank You for the very nice 4 STAR review! Usually the traffic dies down at night! At ten o'clock in the evening, you could take a nap in the middle of the road! More

We stayed in room 11 which was described as a hostel room. It seemed to be newly refinished. A very large bathroom was next doior which we shared with only one other room. The common room had a refrigerator. And TV. I felt it was quite a bit nicer than just a hostel room. My only complaint is that at... More

Motels just outside of National Parks can be notoriously overpriced or just plain bad. Not so the Buffalo Run (and Restaurant). The rooms are clean, quiet, and well appointed. The "serve yourself" breakfast reflects the spirit of the place......don't expect a bell hop! We especially enjoyed our check-in at the restaurant when Marshall took a seat by the cash register...

This is a popular area for cyclists riding up Rainy/Washington Passes. I would think they get lots of bike riders. There is a bike sign on the same owner's restaurant. There is also a sign to take off bicycle cleats. I can do that. Certainly cyclists go through the area and they know it. When we checked in, the woman... More

Maybe you need to look in the mirror to find your problem with people! It is odd that you are the only one who is complaining? We cater to all of the bicyclist who ride over the pass and we try to accommodate their needs, however we discourage them from bringing their bikes into the rooms! After spending money from... More
