Contactless check-in, clean, good mattress and linens, good shower head and water pressure (very important), great location if you are visiting the Hoh rainforest or fishing.

Food options in the area are limited...don't expect world-class dining at any of the 3 close restaurants.

My husband and I ae so impressed with the Quinault River Inn, especially for such a modestly priced motel. It was sparkling clean, the bed was very comfortable, and all the thoughtful little touches, from fresh flowers on the table to mints and power bars were greatly appreciated. The prints on the walls were very nice, too, along with the Salish designs. We stayed in Raven, and loved it! We are also pleased that it has a sheltered porch with multiple tables, so if couples are traveling together during these Covid times, they can meet on the porch without worry. Plus, in non-Covid times, they even have a fitness center. What's more, the view of the river over the expanse of green lawn as mist rose above the trees was so peaceful and relaxing! The inn is up for sale, so we only hope whoever purchases it will keep it as fresh and charming as it is now. So definitely five stars of value!

Located by the Quinault River and a short drive to the Lake Quinault Lodge, the Quinault River Inn is a comfortable, clean, and thoughtfully kept place to stay when visiting southern Olympic National Park. The contactless check in was seamless. They email all the information you would need for the stay, including hours of nearby places to eat. The covered porch with tables and chairs was great for dining al fresco with river views. Particularly appreciated the binder of information in the room with information on food and hiking options. The rooms also feature art by local and Native artists. The Inn is also a 15 minute drive to the ranger station on the north side of the lake, with trails for the rainforest. Lovely place with nice people. Good value. A winner!

Lindsey was so welcoming and hospitable. All the little extras were so nice: the heaters above the comfy chairs on the deck, the Yeti-like hot water cups provided in the rooms, the abundance of towels, the common kitchen area open 24x7 with oatmeal packets and a microwave, the big hammocks outside, and the firepit stocked with wood. The comfy chairs and a few tables scattered on the deck in front of the rooms are for communal use so it creates a nice atmosphere where guests chat with each other. All guests respected the posted quiet hours of 10pm-8am. l

First, every square inch of the room and outside seating areas is spotless. It’s not masked with perfume cleaners, it’s ultra clean. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, available and welcoming. I booked after being unable to get into the nearby lodge and was a little bummed at that but in retrospect we found a diamond. We had a seven day stay while touring Olympic National Park and Seattle and this was the best experience by far.

This inn is well kept and clean. The rooms share a common porch overlooking the lake which is a great place for meals or to stargaze at night. It is easy to find, has some nearby hiking and large trees, and the contactless check-in process was very smooth.

The Quinault River Inn is a delightful place to vacation at Lake Quinault. Set back from the crowds, it is a quaint inn with clean and spacious rooms and a deck overlooking the river. The rooms have a refrigerator and coffee maker (delicious coffee provided) and comfy beds. Our hosts were delightful, making sure that we had everything we needed, especially during this time of covid when staff doesn't enter your room during your stay, unless requested. The grounds were enticing too - a fire circle, plenty of space to stretch out, a grill and picnic table to use, a river to dip your toes into. Absolutely lovely!

Response from Peter Bailey, Owner at Quinault River Inn
Responded Sep 17, 2020
Thank you, Eileen, for your gracious review of your stay at the Inn. Covid has required a significant increase in our cleaning procedures, but good old fashion friendliness is what we are most proud of. Hopefully, the smoke in Hillsboro is on the wane. We are seeing only slight moderation and welcome any and all rain for the Northwest and entire West coast. All the Best!

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it! There are so many thoughtful details that made our stay so enjoyable. Insulated cups, tea bags and coffee, plenty of towels, detailed descriptions of where to eat and the menus... We had a whole day of rain so cozied up inside or hung out on the porch in comfortable reclining chairs with a heater above us. So cool! Our room was spacious and light thanks to a big window looking over the river. The proximity of the restaurants was a big plus. We loved it!

We were here three nights. The Inn is small, quiet, clean, and in a lovely setting. The beds were comfortable, we could easily set the room temperature, and the heating/AC unit was so quiet you had to listen hard to hear it. For breakfast we made oatmeal in the microwave in the common area, and for dinners we got take-out from restaurants in the area and ate them on the covered deck in front of our room. It was perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

Owners live in lodge. Very nice couple. Obvious attention to details- york mints, granola bars, fresh flowers in room. Service station has premade ice buckets, oatmeal, hot cider, and hot cocoa. Fire pit is stocked with tinder, lighter, and wood to use. The oscillating fan was great because I always sleep with one and we got hot- had trouble working AC and owner was very kind in helping with it. Clean. Safe area. Walked to pizza place. Coffee was good.

Drive behind Dinos pizza to find it. Great quality/value place to stay when checking out Quinault Rainforest. There is a very close mini market and gas station too.

I don't know whether any of the rooms have kitchenettes, but there is a pub within short walking distance that serves dinner and a diner within short walking distance that serves breakfast.
