The lodge is conveniently located in the town of Packwood, handy for Mt Rainier park. We stayed mid-week post labor day, so perhaps we got a special rate, but the room was very comfortable for the money. It had a large selection of TV channels, a fridge and a microwave in the room. The bed was comfortable and the wifi... More

Stay here in Packwood - and avoid much higher-priced, likely filled, lesser- quality motels closer to Paradise. This is a very nice place. Shocked at the review from the women who found soiled sheets; bet they let that housekeeper go since then. We discovered very clean, spacious room; wonderful view; pleasant and friendly host; and the delight of a herd... More

My wife and I were on a great road trip in the Pacific Northwest and spent a night here. The location was great as we were planing on spending the next day at Mount Rainer National Park. Our room was good size with a comfortable queen bed. The shower worked well and we had a quiet night to rest up... More

How a bed is made by a maid and not checked is beyond me. After hanging out all day and evening in the room relaxing on top of the bed watching TV, my husband and I crawled into bed about 11:00pm... to my appalling disgusting surprise, I crawled into urine soaked sheets. After showering, it took forever to get a... More

Called the day before to check if they had rooms, and got a room for disabled people which was perfect and close to the reception. Big and clean and everything you need. Breakfast was decent and easy to bring some to the room as well. Only downside was the wifi, which basically didn't work for most of the time. But... More

We stayed here in a room with two-queen beds. The room had everything you'll need in a hotel room. Wi-Fi, microwave, refrigerator, AC/heating and my personal favorite, a wash basin outside the bathroom as well inside. The room was big enough and most importantly very clean. The view was great.!! We even saw a couple of elk grazing nearby. Like... More

No frills basic hotel room, contains everything you need including Wi-Fi. Nice people and good price with a comfy lodge for continental breakfast. There's not many food options in town, but there is a supermarket across the street.

We stayed three nights in a room with Queen bed. The room was spacious for the two of us and the bathroom, with bath, was great. The view out back was across an allotment where deer came to graze and the entire lodge is set back from the road. At night the road noise was not significant and I am... More

We used to stay in this facility every year in the past and were always pleased with it. We had not stayed here for at least 6 years until this Summer. We are still very pleased with it. The room was very large and very clean and the bed was good. A nice large flat screen TV. The management was... More
