My husband and I were recently traveling the Cascade Loop. We had stayed for 6 nights at the Alpine River Inn in Leavenworth which was fantastic. Beautiful view of river, awesome breakfast, very friendly staff, great pool and hottub. So even though I knew the Buffalo Run Inn was in a historical building and didn't have amenties like Alpine, I didn't know our room would be located on the corner of hwy 2. The room itself was small, yet very clean and updated, except for television that was near the ceiling which hurt my neck to watch. Hopefully they could get some flat screen tvs. It was mostly having the view of cars and trucks rushing by that was disappointing.
I thought I had also read that it was advertised as a bed and breakfast. But the owner said help yourself to the food in refrigerator, I realized that it was not a bandb. The food was mostly processed, packaged food except for some oranges. So we made due with what we had.
We have to agree that the buffalo restaurant is also pricey for the area. We found a restaurant next door, the Marblemount Diner which had delicious food, very reasonable prices, and a very friendly, outgoing waitress.
A family situation occurred during our stay, and the owner was nice about releasing us from our 4th night. As my title says, one night is ok, but not our room for more than one.
It would be nice to have a couple more choices for that area.
