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

This place is not fancy, but it's clean and it's quiet. We stayed in a 2 queen bed room-it was huge! No TV and no cell service (on my phone anyway). But they had wifi if I wanted it. The girls who work the front desk/espresso bar were friendly and efficient. We will stay there again.

We we're dying for a good cup and found these guys; they serve Tully’s espresso coffee. Thank goodness, it was very good. The service was prompt and the place was clean. Everyone in the coffee shop seemed really happy

I chose this place because of price and location and I really wasn't expecting much. It turned out great! The room was very small but had everything we needed. 2 twin beds, wifi, a shower, good heat and and simple but nice decor. The beds are small so if you are tall or larger in size you may need a...

We stayed here before our guided trip up Mt. Rainier. It totally suited our needs and they were very accommodating. We stayed in room 9 - it was very quaint (i.e. two single beds, no TV, clean bathroom, simple accommidations.) Since we were focusing on our upcoming climb, these accommidations suited us perfectly. We needed a few extra pillows and... More

The room was clean, not fancy but spacious. The upstairs room gave us a beautiful view. Loved the friendly staff and the food in the historic lodge was tasty and priced right. The Mt Ranier Express train is right down the road, along with EZ times horse rentals! I would recommend this lodge.
