We had trouble finding a place to stay near Mount Rainier that slept four people, had AC, got decent reviews, and allowed one night rentals. We were nervous to find this place that fit the bill for a great price. We paid only $92. The hotel room was quite spacious and did have AC which was important to us when... More

We read great reviews of this place and it totally lived up to our expectations. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was super clean, and the bed was very comfortable which was important for us after 2 long days of hiking! Since there is no cell phone service in this area, we were glad to have WiFi... More

My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel! It is an older hotel, but it has been well taken care of. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The coffee and breakfast were excellent. We were able to do our laundry, which we discovered is a rare luxury indeed in this area. The staff were all very friendly and went... More

We were pleasantly surprised to drive up to the motel and see a mother elk and her two babes playing in the grass. A herd of elk showed up later. It's a great motel for a really good price. The same quality hotel down the road in Morton was $40 more per night. Some fun places to eat within walking... More

We have stayed here several times and have always been very satisfied. The rates are good and we have always had a clean, comfortable, and quiet room. There are grassy fields in front and back, and several times we have watched the elk grazing. A nice touch: the drinking glasses are made of glass not plastic. Packwood is a small... More

My two young-adult kids and I stayed at this hotel because of its central location between Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. When I called to say we’d be late (around 10pm), the sweet manager told me she’d put my key in the box by the front door, where I happily found it. The room with two double beds was... More

I had planned on hiking & camping at Packwood Lake for the first time but being on my own and arriving in town a little too late, I decided to check out the lodging options in town. My first stop was the Cowlitz River Lodge. Thankfully they were pet friendly, the price reasonable and they offered breakfast so I could... More

We had already checked out some nearby overpriced motels when my wife wanted to stop here. Since it appeared much nicer than the places we had already rejected, I didn't want to bother. It turned out to be very reasonably priced with very clean and well maintained rooms with comfortable beds. The continental breakfast was on the upper end of... More

This is an older motel that is very well maintained. Looked like fresh paint outside and in our room. Comfortable bed, room very clean, friendly front desk staff, everything you'd need, and a great price. We stayed here on our way to Mt Rainer and are glad we did. Not fancy or new, but clean and comfy and very quiet... More

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
