Stayed here July '07. This place has cabins plus motel rooms. We stayed in the motel section. A cabin experience may be different.
This was an okay place to spend the night while you do other things, but this is not a destination by itself.
Our room was in the motel-like building, on the 2nd floor. Similar to a Motel 6, but in a more interesting place. Room has no phone. TV got 2 channels. Room was clean. Beds worn - we rolled to the center. Paid $119/night for 2 adults and 2 children. Walls are thin - we could hear the guy next door snoring. Glad that's all he was doing. Our room was on the 2nd floor. Watch out for the dark stairway on the West end of the building. The stairs are different heights, and on one side of the stairway the guardrail has no vertical bars - kids can fall through.
The view out our big 2nd floor picture window was very nice. Rooms on the 1st floor would mostly see the parking lot.
The room had doors on both sides of the room - one on the lake side, one on the hill side. The room was quite warm, but we couldn't leave the doors open since it let in the mosquitos. There were little window screens on each side, but they were so plugged with dust that little air passed.
Housekeeping banged on our door, with a wooden stick, at 9:00 AM on our day of departure. This was consistant with the overall ambience of the place.
The resort includes a nice grassy park on the lake, but little else Don't be fooled by the fleet of identical sailboats on the beach. They're not for rent. There is no lodge. There is no central place to hang out. There is a convenience store which closes at 9:00 PM. Dining options nearby are few. There's the on-site restaurant, the Salmon. It was too expensive for us. A burger is $10. About a mile west is the classy old-world Lake Quinault Lodge. It's a better choice if you want to spend a lot on a meal.
The rooms in the motel building are very close to the street. Fortunately there is little traffic at night. The street sweeping machine went back and forth in front of the room several times starting around 8:00AM on Saturday morning. Woke everyone up. What were they thinking?
The kids did like the place. We'd stay there again if there were no other options in this price range - same as anytime we travel. The attraction of the area is the Hoh Rain Forest and the magnificent beaches. Don't go there for a resort experience.
