Not to mention the food in the restaurant was out of this world! Dont let the rustic look fool you they are putting out some 5star quality food. Would recommend this and cant... More

We happened upon this Inn by chance, showing up to Mt Rainier without reservations with all other hotels with "no vacancy " posted. Lucky for us, indeed! The accommodations were clean, very affordable, great staff, and an imposing view! The entire establishment was quaint and fit the locale perfectly. The adjacent restaurant served good food, again at affordable prices. I... More

Room was cozy with bed, couch, table, and microwave. No TV but we knew this ahead and brought movies on our laptop to enjoy. Staff was very nice... More

This quaint inn (motel rooms to antique-filled cabins) re-opened the restaurant this summer and we tried their hand-pressed burgers that were excellent. Decent menu and it's becoming popular again. Open for breakfast. lunch, and dinner. Very pleasant staff and good alternative to The Highlander Restaurant in Ashford. Wish them the best!

I spent 4 days/nights at the Rainier Valley Inn.. Rooms were very clean and quiet. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant was a great place to start the day with a hearty breakfast. I was in the area to do hiking and not interested in finding the Ritz! So this place was right up my alley! I will stay... More

The management and staff were very friendly here, for the hotel and the restaurant. The rooms are VERY basic and that is what we expected so there was no surprise.
