At first I thought that this place was not my cup of tea. Small rooms with no private bath or toilet--everything was down the hall. No wi-fi, no phone service except for a pay phone. Slow service. But then, I went there with the wrong frame of mind. I went to climb Mt. Rainier. So, having said that, here is...

We stayed here 1 night during a trip around Washington and Canada. The lobby and public areas of the Paradise Inn had the look and feel of a classic national park lodge. The dining room was very nice and most of the staff was friendly. We had a small room on the 3rd floor (which is actually the same floor...

Although we have visited Mt. Rainier on day trips many times, this was our first overnight stay. We had read some of the reviews posted here and were a little uncertain, but our lunch experiences at the restaurant had been so good that we chose to ignore the negative reviews and try the overnight stay ourselves. We are so glad...

Many reviewers have complained about the facility. It’s a lodge. It is not a resort or spa! Plus, it’s about ‘The Mountain’! If you want to stay elsewhere then you have a 30 to 45 minute drive for basic accommodations, which may result in having to drive down in the dark and in any kind of inclement weather. If you...

We were apprehensive of the place after reading a variety of reviews on various sites. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are old, but then again, this is a 100 year old historic building. This was not nearly as bad as we expected after reading some reviews. The food was excellent (I had bison meatloaf and my wife had...

Our room was extremely small with uncomfortable beds. The bathroom was a disaster with a large hole in the wall under the sink which I plugged with a towel so nothing could creep in during the night. The hallways looked as though they hadn't been vacuumed or cleaned in years. Beware! Just because you pay a lot doesn't mean you...

I stayed one night in a lodge room (#445) with a double bed and basin, facilities down the corridor. The room was small but tastefully decorated and very clean as were the shared showers and restrooms. Very comfortable bed and good quality linens. The not so good: I suspect room #445 is the dregs of the lodge. When I get...

The Paradise Inn Lodge is a very convenient place to spend a night or two if you are focused on outdoor activities and scenery. No lodging in the area can match the convenience of being just a few yards from the beginning of the hiking trails. Scenery is among the best in America. The rustic lodge is historic and a...

Our dinner in the Paradise Inn dining room proved to be absolutely one of the WORST meals either of us had eaten. The "bourbon buffalo meatloaf" was a joke: a vulcanized overdone dry lump of purported ground buffalo meat wrapped in nearly raw bacon. Very overpriced considering its near in-edibility. Even our bottle of wine was undrinkable. A very disappointing...

Let me begin by saying that if, no, WHEN I stay again, I will choose one of the larger rooms. Under most circumstances, the small rooms in the main lodge are adequate, but very small, with double, not queen beds, and no air circulation. We were there on a warm (80+ degree day) and even with the window wide open,...
