A group of freinds stayed here for skiing at White Pass. The lodge is clean, comfortable beds, staffed by a couple who live there. In the evening wine was served, generous breakfast in the morning. Rooms were quiet and spacious. Had a B&B feel.

In July, 2103, my wife and I went to Paradise on Mt. Rainier. There are National Park lodges in Paradise and Longmire. Their locations and atmospheres are wonderful (especially the one in Paradise), and the restaurants are excellent. However, they are old, rustic, and lack in modern comfort. As an alternative, we stayed in this motel in Packwood, which is... More

Packwood is a small and quiet place near to Mount Rainier. The hotel is a little bit on the outside. From the 1st contact everything was very good: a very good reception, big hospitality, very helpful. The room was nice and clean. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast.

First of all, you need to be aware that this place is at the far west side of town. It was not on my Garmin so I picked a place that was. The town is so small I thought I would spot the place easily. Well, I came in from the east and started to panic when I didn't see... More

Crest Trail Lodge is a bit expensive for the tiny town of Packwood, but I suppose not bad considering it's so close to Mount Rainier. The room decor is somewhat updated but the mattresses are probably old and could stand to be replaced. I always bring a memory foam pad, so my sleep was alright. The walls are a bit... More

Spent a couple of nights here on our way to San Fransisco. The rooms are nice and clean, the breakfast is yummmmmmy with plenty to choose from and the staff are really nice! Defiantly recommend it :) Plus there are plenty of deer and elk to see around!

We were pleased with our choice, the CTL is a very nice place to stay in Packwood. Clean, well equipped and spacious. All the rooms are double queens with nice bathrooms and showers and decent tv's. And the Internet service worked really well...a far cry from the other hotel we stayed in the first night. The breakfast is a bit... More

The CTL is on the outskirts of Packwood. Thought it was closer to town, but local fire department steered us in the right direction. The owners running the place were friendly, and check in and check out were problem free. Didn't try the wine. The room was kind of small and dated, but clean and sufficient for sleep. The breakfast... More

We just returned from two nights at Crest Trail Lodge in Packwood, WA. The hotel was perfect! We had a 2nd floor room with 2 beds. It was quiet and the beds were comfortable. It was close to restaurants and to Mt Ranier NP. The breakfast was wonderful! And we appreciated having a hot breakfast before heading out hiking in... More

The room was clean, modern, and everything was functional in room 207. It was very quiet and I didn't hear any sounds from either traffic or other guests, and I have the hearing of a hawk! The best part was the owners who actually work there, and are quite friendly and professional! The free wine didn't hurt either. My wife,... More
