My partner and I stayed here last week and found the accommodations perfect for our needs. When we arrived, we easily picked up the keys found a clean and cozy room waiting for us. The facilities were all well maintained and the shared bathrooms clean and available whenever we needed them. Our stay was upstairs in room number 11, and... More

The Inn itself is well-situated outside the North Cascades, which is why we chose it despite the warnings in previous reviews about the inhospitable owner. His sarcastic, hostile responses to any of the less than stellar reviews posted here are a pretty good indication of the attitude you will be met with when you check in - a litany of... More

We had a good stay at the Buffalo Run Inn with more pros than cons (with the major con being the breakfast). It may be most helpful if I list the pros and cons for people to judge for themselves what’s important for them when they book this inn: Pros: Good, newly renovated family room (#10) with an opening sofa,...

This hotel delivered exactly what it promised--since that's what I was looking for, I was happy. The location is awesome: a perfect jumping off point for the North Cascades. (In particular, it's right by the start of the Cascade River Road, so it's an hour from the Cascade Pass trailhead.) The upstairs rooms are very small (room 14 had a... More

You needed to make your own coffee and there were no instructions on how . Every pot is different . All food was bought at a super market and electric needed to be updated.you... More

The rooms are really large and each is unique. We had a room with a buffalo theme and my buddy and his wife had a room with a moose theme. Everything is clean, updated and quiet, and comfortable. Even the nice sized bed and bath. And across the street, is their fun diner which serves all sorts of exotic meats.... More

Other reviewers were right. The owners should NOT be in the hospitality business. They are clearly miserable, and don't hesitate to inflict that misery on others. Knowing this, we tried to smile lots & be extra nice, to no avail. They're not cyclist-friendly at all, either. The rooms were tiny, the floors sloped so that my head kept bumping against... More

The room was a decent size and comfortable. The ensuite was fine too. The problem was the breakfast which is DIY. There is no member of staff present. I didn't know how to use the coffee machine and there were no instructions. There was very little choice and it was mainly cake/pastries sort of stuff. There was very little left... More

This is a COMPLIMENTARY continental breakfast! I can't believe that you are complaining about receiving something free! If you wait until the end of the breakfast, the picking get slimmer! Maybe you were expecting steak and eggs, served to you in bed, by our butler! More

We stayed here while visiting the North Cascades. We actually stayed in two different rooms because we planned our trip a little late. The first one (room 9) was quieter than the second room (7). The rooms were quaint and the beds were comfortable. We slept great both nights. The breakfast was little to be desired. The coffee wasn't even... More

Thank you for the review, however I am confused! Are you reviewing the restaurant or the inn? Or maybe you are not sure! We are not responsible for the rain and in case you didn't know it, it rains quite a bit in Washington state! I don't understand the issue about the room key, however it sounds like you were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This historic 1889 roadhouse was a gathering place for all the gold miners, lumberjacks and mountain men traveling up the Skagit River into the North Cascades. Many a jug of moonshine has passed through the doors of the inn! It is located at the entrance to the North Cascades National Park and was totally renovated in 2004! A great meeting place for your North Cascades adventure! The Buffalo Run Restaurant is across the street! ... more   less
