We chose Crest Trail Lodge over a national park lodge for both cost and comfort whilst visiting Mount Rainier national park during our Washington road trip. The room was comfortable and well equipped for our 2 night stay. Breakfast was provided and was satisfactory. In the early evening complimentary wine was available and we were able to sit outside to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Crest Trail Lodge. The staff are friendly and helpful, the room is roomy and clean, they even provide KEURIG coffee machine in the room (and a good size of refrigerator to store three day worth lunches for our hiking in Mt Rainier). The hotel is quiet, the breakfast is simple but well... More

We stayed here on our way to Mt. Rainier, and we loved it. The woman at the front desk, Tammy, was very accommodating and helped direct us to the places we wanted to go in Mt. Rainier National Park. She also gave us free wine, even though we arrived after the 8:30 "free wine happy hour" deadline. The room was... More

I stayed here one night after exploring Mount Rainier National Park. On the outskirts of tiny town called Packwood. Rooms look like they had recently been re-done. Nice beds, granite sink in the main room right outside of bathroom. Super friendly managers. It was very clean and they host a little wine social in the evening for the guests. Breakfast... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at this lodge. Simple and clean. Accommodations book up quickly and it was great to be able to spend one night in the southern part of Mount Rainier National Park to do some hikes and see the mountain from that perspective and then head up north.

Nice accomodation on the edge of Packwood, which provides good access to Mt Rainer Nat Park. Comfortable rooms. Nice breakfast including the option of making waffles. Plenty of parking. Pleasant staff on reception. Complimentary glasses of wine every evening which you can take outside to the picnic tables and enjoy the warm evening and see elk wandering around at the... More

We spent two nights and were impressed. The room was impeccably clean and well appointed. It’s not fancy but nice. It’s located directly next to Hwy 12 just west of Packwood; even though we faced the highway, the room was very quiet. They feature a hot breakfast in the morning and wine reception in the evening, both complimentary. We particularly... More

Excellent service, nice and clean rooms. Breakfast was very good. We had an issue with another local hotel and the staff of Crest Trail Lodge really helped us out. A big thanks to the hotel management!

My first stay here was really nice. The service was excellent and the room very clean. The breakfast Buffett was nice with plenty of hot good. This was an unexpected nice stay outside Mt Rainier and Mt St Helens. Unexpected bonuses: pet friendly and complimentary wine tasting in the evening. Very nice!
