My husband and I spent 3 nights hear while hiking in Mt Rainier. The rooms as small and dated but clean. The bed was comfortable. The shower was just a basic stall. It was fine for us because we were gone all day at the park doing long hikes Don't bother hurrying there for the "wine hour". It is the sweetest worst wine I have ever had. There is a large parlour in the inn which is nice to hang out in and talk to the other guests. It was very social!
We ate dinner there one night. We had a lovely salad and my trout was outstanding. My husband ordered the "special" trout which was explained as with cranberries and apples. It had a large portion of Thanksgiving type stuffing on it and was not a good combination. I referred to it as "Turkey trout". My pan fried trout was wonderful as was our dessert of mud pie. Service was also good. Just one wrong choice. The next night we ate at "Wildberry" across the street and it was awesome!
Breakfast were wonderful but do make sure you sign up early for a time. As we were hiking we wanted to eat and get on the mountain. They do a 7:30 am breakfast but only 2 parties at a time.
The best thing about the inn is they do lunches to go for $9 each. Great sandwich, fruit, candy, granola bar and drink all set to go so you don't have to worry about stopping anywhere.
