Great stay!
Very nice and clean place, looks like a budget/no-frill cabin, but actually really classy. Everything was clean, room was spacious, free parking. A great stain if you're traveling to Mount Rainier. Man at the front desk was not that nice, but it did not change anything... And we even saw some elks outside the room!

6/10 Good

Disappointing
The room was listed as Accessible, which is very important in my decision whether to book the room. However, the only concession to accessibility is that the room is located on the main floor and easy to enter from the parking area. For the rest, there were no adaptations at all - no grab bars in the bathroom, a low, small toilet that was almost impossible to use. Couldn’t shower because there were no grab bars, etc. In addition the room was tired and worn looking. The bed was OK, and so were the internet and TV service, after a problem with the remotes was solved. The breakfast was just OK, watery motel scrambled eggs, sausages, watery waffle mix. No fresh fruit, no yoghurt. The sign outside said New Owners and Help Wanted, and perhaps some allowance might be made. However, none of the above items were relatable to this factor. I paid more for this motel than any other one recently, and it was not the right decision for us.

Great Location
When we first arrived our room wasn’t done but they gave us the key. We walked into an unready and dirty room. When we booked the hotel it was pet friendly. Apparently management changed and they no longer allowed pets. Breakfast was good, however, the new management was not friendly to us at all. Great location to Mount Rainier and a cute hotel that just needs a little TLC.

4/10 Fair

Very disappointing
This was more like a motel, not sure why it is called a lodge except for the dead animal heads in the lobby. We were treated quite rudely by the front desk person, the room was sparse and the bathroom needed repair. The water did not drain from the tub and toilet made load noises when it flushed for a LONG time. People smoked outside their rooms and you had to walk through the smoke. Not a fan of this place at all. Only thing I liked was elk hung out around the place.

Great location for Mt. Ranier park access. Great water pressure. Breakfast minimal - could use fresh fruit and eggs. Enjoyed elk in front yard.
