This was a nice hotel for a small town. Rooms are average and bed mattresses need updating but very clean. Very nice breakfast free wine at night. You pay by bed used and kids under 12 are free. Will stay there again. Close to the 2 restaurants in town.

Friend and I stayed here for two nights while visiting Mt Rainier. Packwood itself is a very small town so the amenities in this hotel is more than welcome. Actually, it's better than a lot of chain hotel rooms we stayed at during our 2-wk, 24-state trek. Fridge, microwave and keurig. Good size flat screen with HBO and even music... More

My wife, me, and My wife's parents were visiting mount rainier last week and we wanted a place to stay with all necessary amenities. I found this place to have good reviewes and not too far from mount rainier park entrance. So choose this place for 120$ a night for a room with two queen beds. The rooms were clean... More

Very well maintained. Super friendly staff. Great continental breakfast. The room was very clean and quiet. Great location to visit Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helen's. Food in the area is very limited, but they do have a good grocery store down the street.

The Crest Trail Lodge is by far the best of all of the hotel accommodations you will find in the small town of Packwood. The hotel's wonderful personalized customer service from the front desk to the maids truly captures the small town atmosphere. Despite it's small town setting, the hotel has all of the updated and modern amenities that you'd... More

This place is well kept and the rooms are modern and clean. The lady at the front desk Diane is very helpful. Good breakfast and complimentary wine in the evening. Packwood itself isn't great but just a stopping point on the way to mount rainier

Like many other reviews - this was a welcome site after seeing other places in Packwood. It was at the edge of the tiny little town and we were surprised when going in that the place was well kept, clean and furnishings seemed updated. The bathroom was clean, had new tile and we personally like the sink outside the bathroom... More

Very nice hotel I found thankfully when another didn't return call. Newer property a little west of Packwood. They offer complimentary wine nightly until 8:30 pm. The front desk was very courteous and helpful. There is no elevator but only two floors. The room itself was well kept with desk, two queen beds and flat screen TV. The vanity is... More
