Our stay was great and our experience pretty much echos the gist of most former reviews: really great location, nice but simple and rather overpriced rooms, nice staff, decent food but a little too expensive, awesome sitting area with beautiful fireplace downstairs. The bed was good, but the pillows were terrible; I threw them on the floor and slept without. Our private bathroom was good and the shower hot and strong. The place was almost empty, so it was very quiet all night. It was foggy/cloudy the entire time with no view of the mountain. But 5 minutes before we left it all suddenly cleared and we enjoyed a quick amazing view from the front porch before we departed. It was worth it staying here just for that last 5 minutes. The setting of the place by itself pushes this place to a 'very good' rating. I definitely hope to stay here again in the future.…
We had been escorted to the Inn by a snow plow and another service vehicle, and on the way out with a caravan! We enjoyed our quiet stay immensely, even though we were asked to stay under cover of the porch or the breezeway because lots of snow was blown off the trees. The folks at the Inn took extremely good care of us, kept the fire in the lounge going, played quiet music for us, and had a huge pot of coffee on all day, as well as hot water so we could make tea. We had a couple of meals in the restaurant and got excellent service. The gift shop was closed, and there was no room service. They must have added new beds, they were much better than we remembered.
Pros: (1) extremely helpful and friendly staff (especially Stephanie at the restaurant!); (2) cozy room, comfortable bed, and clean bathroom; and (3) conveniently located next to trailheads. Cons: (1) a bit pricey; (2) no WiFi or cellphone reception (which, depending on your outlook, may be a good thing); (3) the food at the restaurant was just so-so (but the service was superb).
Clean, quiet standard national park rooms (no TV, wifi or phone, which is fine). Good location on the south road in the park, on the way to Paradise or Ohanapecosh. Ranger station next door which is helpful and it has a very small exhibit area. Front desk staff was lacking however, not familiar with computer system, tasked with more than one job (in what appeared to be a management economy move), not really conversant with the environment (national park) they were working in. On site restaurant is good in terms of variety, service and price. Extensive gift shop next door.
We loved this hotel for its large common room with two huge natural fireplaces. The restaurant had some lovely views and the food was great. Like all national park lodges, this was a bit pricey but was a nice place to stay. We would have liked to have a coffee maker in the room instead of having to get dressed and walk so far to the cafe and buy some. Also if you have large suitcases, most of the rooms with bathrooms are up or down stairs.
