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

Searched online for a motel near the Mt. Rainier National Park. When we called a week prior, they had one remaining room for only $77! That was a fortunate find for us. The woman at the front desk was very friendly and hospitable, making our stay one to remember. Only one negative - if you like your news fair and... More

We've stayed here twice while snowboarding at nearby White Pass. The property is clean and the staff very helpful. The rooms are sized comfortably but could certainly use an update. We will certainly stay here again.

We were doing a month-long tour of the Pacific Northwest, and wanted to return to Mt. Rainier at the end of our trip after visiting Glacier National Park. This was actually in June 2010, but that was not a choice in the drop down menu. We stumbled on Packwood without knowing anything about it and were pleasantly surprised. The Cowlitz... More
