“Great value stay for Mt Rainier”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Stayed a couple of nights when visiting Mt Rainier and it was ideal. Had one of the units, which had a huge bed, small table and chairs and a small kitchenette area. Room was big, too.
Despite being near the road, it was very quiet and no noise from other rooms either. There wer elk grazing in the grounds the morning I left too.
Breakfast was a bit limited, but it wasn’t advertised as being part of the price when I booked so I considered it a bit of a bonus.
You do have to go into the main building to use the wi-fi but that’s hardly a disaster.

After three days of tent camping and a long drive from Leavenworth we were ready for a nice room with a kitchenette. I think it was Unit 16 we selected - anyway, it was just what we were looking for. The King 4-poster bed was heavenly. Lili and Cong were very nice hosts.

Mountain View Lodge has a main building with several annex buildings beside and behind, which have 2 or 3 units each. We had the unit next to the pool (which was no longer operating). The room was modern with wood flooring. There was a small table with two chairs, frig, microwave and coffeemaker in the room. The bathroom sink/counter was separated from the shower/toilet which made it easier when two of us were trying to get ready at the same time. The bed was extremely comfortable. Our unit was right next to the highway, so we could occasionally hear large semis coming over the mountain during the night. Since we left early to hike in the park, we didn't sample the breakfast fare, but instead brought our own breakfast foods. At check-in the owner told us that wi-fi was down in all of Packwood, but called our room a few hours later to tell us when it was back up and running. Yes, it only works in the lobby, but not a big deal unless you're addicted to wifi.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a unit away from the highway since large semi...

While passing thru from Mt. St. Helen, s to Mt. Rainier we stopped at this Lodge in Packwood Wa . We were pleasantly surprised. It was and older lodge used all year around (even for skiers) in winter. It had been remodeled and was clean and comfortable. The beds were good and the bathroom had been upgraded too. It had a micro-wave ,fridge, and TV with a rustic couch made from trees. I would stay there again. It was reasonable too. The continental breakfast was adequate and served great coffee.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Packwood, Washington, look no further than the Mountain View lodge. Folks, especially Steve who complained about the lack of wifi. DUDE YOURE in the mountains in a beautiful national park area such as Mount Rainier, you don't need Wifi for one day. They were pretty clear when we checked in and told us that the wifi does not work in the rooms and is shotty. What do you expect you're out in the boon docks in the beautiful mountains. If you want free wifi stay in Seattle, and drive an hour and half to the mountain then another hour and a half up the mountain and back. - or stay within 20-30 min of the peak of the park entrance in packwood and enjoy the evening with no interruptions from work or people. There is wifi in the lodge, but again why do you need wifi so bad? You're in the beautiful mountains! Its the boon docks don't expect great wifi in the boon docks.. Stay in Tacoma if you want that and enjoy a view of a garbage bin or run down homes. The lodge was fantastic, rustic cabins, nestled in the woods , yes it is on a busy highway but its the location that matters most here. You are 20-30 min from the entrance to Mt Rainier paradise park road. Which helps in trying to see the mountain or hike it. The staff is friendly and a family own property and its a great place to stay. I would recommend the Mountain View Lodge to anyone it was well worth it. There is a good sports bar/pub down the road we ate at and watched the football game.

Room Tip: Get one of the cabins. The cabins do not have reliable wifi you can get big roaming charges. Just sh...

We discoverd this very charming Lodge and we asked for a basic room. The room was nice and clean. Fast wifi connection.
The owner was very friendly and really helpful. What a difference with other hotels!
Much value for your money.. If we visit Mount Reanier again we will definitely stay here again :-)

Freshly remodeled with kitchen and a welcome retreat after a days motorcycle ride. Close to Mt. Rainer National Park entrance and we could walk about 10 minutes to dinner and market. Simple but adequate continental breakfast. We would stay again.
