This Historic Lodge is considered one of the Great Lodges of the West and was built in 1916. It closes in the winter and reopens in May. The lodge sits in the shadow of Mt Rainier and is surrounded by mountain meadows. Outside the front doors you have miles of hiking trails with close up views of glaciers and waterfalls....

Neat place but could be challenging for those addicted to technology. Pay phone in the lobby is how to contact the outside world. No TV, no wifi and no cell signal! We stayed at the last minute without doing our usual research so it came as quite a surprise but after the initial shock wore off it was fine. It...

Enjoyed our four day stay at Paradise Inn. Like going back in time to relax after daily hikes in large wood beam interior of comfortable lobby or rafters with small tables to chat, read, write cards, etc. Tiny rooms comfortable rooms where with shared bathrooms and showers in hallways. Beautiful beamed dinning room and afternoon tea with bisquits. Would return.

Fabulous old school Hotel. No technology bring a good book. Very dated which is part of the experience. Dining was good particular since you are 50 mins from anything else. Lower hiking trails are a must with great views if it isn't raining.

All comments on how big the place is, how small the rooms, how dated the style, how bad the parking ... all true. But the location! It is like all national park inns old and very very rustic. I think they would have said it was rustic when it was built! Common areas are gorgeous and loved the nightly ranger...

The setting is incredible but the inn is terrible. One could be OK with the tiny room but there isn't even a chair to sit down on, the towels are so thin they don't dry you off, the restaurant is an overly priced bad food experience, & when it's cold & wet outside you're freezing inside because the public area...

Tiny rooms without bathroom. long corridors with no decorations at all making it difficult for people to remember where their room is. Shared bathrooms in the corridor, but not enough for the amount of rooms. It was a long wait after a hike in the cold. Expensive restaurant with a huge dining hall.

The rooms are small and sparse. The bathroom and showers are down the hall. The room key is made of metal and has little teeth. There's no telephone, television, radio, WiFi or cell service. The room doesn't have a mini fridge, microwave or coffee maker and there's no room service. It was great! The Paradise Inn is undeniably a bucket...

As is to be expected from a National Park inn, the accommodations are sketchy. No surprise, though. The setting is to die for and the main lobby was fabulous.

Amazingly, the inn does not have its own designated parking, so if you arrive when the park is crowded, you have to fight it out for parking with everyone else. We had the misfortune to be there when the large parking area was being repaved. They were repaving the entire parking area at once and the only parking was on...
