“Surprise!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Didn't expect much from this eatery out in the middle of nowhere, but it was a pleasant experience. Nice atmosphere, great service, excellent cuisine. Our server spent a lot of quality time with us and prepared our trout filets at our table

My husband and I were only able to stay one night on 8-4-12. We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was incredable and would have cost at least $15 each somewhere else. We had to fill our camelback's for hiking and the staff was very accomidating with getting use ice to fill our packs. Super close to Mt. Ranier park entrance.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify you want a private in-room bathroom if that is important to you.

Very enjoyable stay at Alexander's Country Inn. We stayed 2 nights while visiting Mt. Rainier. Could not have been more comfortable. The innkeepers see to it that you have "extras" that you did not expect. the room was cozy and the food in the restaurant was quite good. Loved the breakfast!!

Just a mile from the entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, we selected Alexander's from a long list of possibilities because it included a full breakfast and the restaurant on the premises served dinner. A lovely setting, nice grounds, a TV room, library, sitting areas, wine served at 5 PM. The trout pond supplies the restaurant with the most delicious fresh mountain trout, not to be missed.

Room Tip: We asked for a room away from the road. We got a corner room away from all noice. Perfect.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here, and found it to be wonderful. Having stayed at other B & B's (no, this one is NOT labeled as one, but...) we found Alexander's to be excellent. We were there mid-week, and it was still quite busy. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable of the surrounding area, and able to provide other points of interest in addition to Mt. Rainier. They will provide a bag lunch upon request (yes it costs, but well worth it). They had quite a breakfast selection, one that should satisfy most everyone. The Inn is an older building, and does have the expected narrower stairways and occasional floor squeaks, but that's part of the charm. If you don't mind the stair climb, take a Queen size room, it's plenty big enough and well outfitted. No, there are no elevators, or fridges in the rooms, but they will provide ice if you need to keep something cold. It's a charming place, quiet, rural, plenty of birds, and black-tailed deer visit the back frequently. Oh yeah, their pond is stocked with trout, which does appear on their evening menu. We found their food to also be quite delicious and well prepared. All in all, a great place to visit, and if we do go back to the Northwest, we will be sure to drop in again.

Room Tip: Ask for a bigger room if you mind climbing stairs, the queens are on the 3rd floor, accessible from...

I like quirky and it is historical with a nice gift shop. I slept well. It is very close to Mt Ranier and that is great. We didn't like the food at the restaurant. A lot of reviews raved about it but we found it all right but pricey. Found the Inn staff very friendly but not the restaurant staff so much.

My husband and I have been here several times over the years, we love to watch the birds, have an excellent meal here or a nosh and glass of wine. Atmosphere is everything, and Alexander's has that nice slow pace about it. The food is always wonderful and the staff is always helpful and friendly.

This is the perfect base camp for those wanting a bit more comfort while exploring the Mt Rainier National Park area.
