To save money my friend booked this motel as it was the cheapest, still not all that great for the price. Should have paid $30 more and stayed at a better one. We had the twin bed room. The bed was very hard, I didn't mind too much. But the room was tiny! It functioned as a stop for an... More

We went for Easter for the scenic railroad trip and stayed overnight at Whittaker bunkhouse. Good location, room #20 was perfect for our family of 3 boys. Clean and quiet and a lovely walk/hike in the back of property. Great hiking historical site. Coffee shop was the highlight for my boys. Great hospitality.

We stayed overnight at Whittaker's. Our room was clean, simple (two twin beds), and very basic. There was no TV or desk. Like others, we found the walls and ceiling to be a bit thin, and we could hear people walking around upstairs above us (but could not hear talking). The wall heater was just fine for the room, and... More

We stayed here one night after a long day of hiking at Mt. Rainier, which was one day of a week-long vacation driving through parts of Washington and Oregon. We were running quite late and called the bunkhouse to let them know as soon as we could get a signal. We called 3 or more times and left messages, but... More

Stayed here to see Mt. Ranier. We were in room #10 which had two single beds, no tv or phone (which is nice!). The wall heater made the room quite toasty. We had some local menus in our room, however once at the chosen restaurant they no longer offered any of the items that brought us there, saying the menu... More

After a full, tiring day of hiking at Mt. Rainier, this was a perfect, quiet place to rest up before continuing our trip down to Portland, OR. Our room (#23, I think) was quite large for the 5 of us. The bathroom was dated and not sparkling clean, but completely adequate. The major problem was the heat. It was a... More

Location is good, just a short drive up to the entrance of Mount Rainier National Park. A good place to go and lay your head at night, that is all. Not a quaint, romantic or sit by the fire as you sip wine and watch the views kind of establishment. Our room was big enough and luckily with double doors... More

My husband and I stayed at Whittaker's Bunkhouse in Ashford in late June 2014. It was a good place to get a good, hot shower, clean up ourselves and our gear, have a roof over us, and sleep in a bed between bouts of tent camping during our vacation. Our room had everything we needed, and I appreciated having a... More

I've stayed at the Bunkhouse several times in summer and winter. Located about six miles from Rainier entrance, it offers a good room close to the park. Rates are proper for the location and quality of the rooms. Rooms are pretty bare bones. An ok bed, bath and well that's about it. No tv, no motor car, no phone, as... More
