We went there just to get unplugged for a few days and celebrate my birthday. The town itself is very small. According to the owner of the hotel 800 plus, if I heard him correctly. What makes this town thrive is that they have the Cowlitz River running through it, the short drive to White Pass Ski Resort and the...

We have stayed at the Crest Trail Lodge in Packwood, WA twice in the past month during two over-night skiing trips at White Pass. The hotel is clean and comfortable. They provide everything you could want. Lots of comfy pillows, nice bedding, TV with lots of channels (including Disney and Nick for the little ones), in-room coffee (with LOTS of...

We stayed overnight as our start point to Mt Ranier. Our room was comfortable, our hostes friendly and helpful, our buffet continental breakfast limited but sufficient, and the two frees evening wines an extra bonus. There was a view of Mt Ranier from downtown and a great pub meal at the local tavern.

The lodge is located just outside Packwood. It's a very nice setting. Our room was spacious and clean (as was the rest of the lodge). Wifi worked well. Breakfast is included. They offer lots of choices. Every evening Forrest and Donna offer a complimentary wine. It was a beautiful evening so I had my wine outside. Nice way to exchange...

This is the second time in two years I have stayed at this little motel and I am amazed that it only gets two stars in the rating system. Although it does not have a pool or fitness center, the rooms are spacious, clean and nicely appointed. The managers are always helpful and smiling and serve two glasses of nice...

Don't expect that much of Packwood; it's a " one trafficlight" town with some primary stuff like a petrol station and foodmarket, but Crest Trail Lodge is worth visiting Packwood! Nice lady behind the desk and a large room with all the things you need, daily cleaning and linen In the evening a complementary glass of wine! You can even...

There seems to be limited options to stay in Packwood so we were pleased we had booked this hotel. We stayed one night when travelling from the Columbia river to Mount Rainier. It is quiet, clean, comfortable and well managed. A glass of wine and breakfast is included. All you could want from a hotel!

This was a nice place to stay while seeing the park. The staff was especially nice, the rooms clean, and the continental breakfast a nice touch. The bathroom, sink space was a bit odd, but minor in the scheme of things. We opted for separate beds given our travel arrangements and slept well here. I wished for a patio area...

A year ago I stayed here with my son while hiking the South Cascades, and my review said I hoped to come back. So came back this year for 8 days. We're hikers. We hit the breakfast when the gate opens (promptly at 7!) and then are out the door. We ate most of our meals out of the microwave....
