Fabulous old school Hotel. No technology bring a good book. Very dated which is part of the experience. Dining was good particular since you are 50 mins from anything else. Lower hiking trails are a must with great views if it isn't raining.

All comments on how big the place is, how small the rooms, how dated the style, how bad the parking ... all true. But the location! It is like all national park inns old and very very rustic. I think they would have said it was rustic when it was built! Common areas are gorgeous and loved the nightly ranger...

The setting is incredible but the inn is terrible. One could be OK with the tiny room but there isn't even a chair to sit down on, the towels are so thin they don't dry you off, the restaurant is an overly priced bad food experience, & when it's cold & wet outside you're freezing inside because the public area...

Tiny rooms without bathroom. long corridors with no decorations at all making it difficult for people to remember where their room is. Shared bathrooms in the corridor, but not enough for the amount of rooms. It was a long wait after a hike in the cold. Expensive restaurant with a huge dining hall.

The rooms are small and sparse. The bathroom and showers are down the hall. The room key is made of metal and has little teeth. There's no telephone, television, radio, WiFi or cell service. The room doesn't have a mini fridge, microwave or coffee maker and there's no room service. It was great! The Paradise Inn is undeniably a bucket...

As is to be expected from a National Park inn, the accommodations are sketchy. No surprise, though. The setting is to die for and the main lobby was fabulous. The pianist who played uninterrupted each night was a special treat and could be listened to from any of many fun seating options. The disappointing thing was our meal. Since people...

Amazingly, the inn does not have its own designated parking, so if you arrive when the park is crowded, you have to fight it out for parking with everyone else. We had the misfortune to be there when the large parking area was being repaved. They were repaving the entire parking area at once and the only parking was on...

We stayed three nights at Paradise Inn for a visit in early September. It was a very comfortable, enjoyable visit and staying at the inn made it easy to enjoy the park from before sunrise to after sunset. The inn does not have televisions, nor internet or cellular service. Under normal circumstances that is a wonderful break from day to...

We came here for our anniversary and had, overall, a nice experience. The rooms are small and drafty but clean. We enjoyed that it wasn't modern and had a nostalgic feel. The restaurant was the low point of our stay. The food was hit and miss. The breakfast buffet was not worth what we paid as it was slightly better...
