I can't pinpoint exactly what we liked so well about this place, but it just felt so comfortable and "homey." The manager of the place was super friendly, giving us tips on where to eat along with a glass of wine when we checked in. The room was vert clean and the bedding was super comfortable. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical by the look of the main picture of the front of the building (looks to me like the actual accommodations once you get inside could be nice or sub-par), but we were very pleased. The breakfast was quite good, too.

Loud after hours. Property poorly maintained. Unprofessional staff, bad breakfast.

A clean, comfortable, pleasant inn with good breakfast choices. Elk were seen from our room window. Picnic tables for enjoying the cool outdoor weather. Very pleasant stay.

The lady at the front desk was very hospitable and runs a great hotel. She's what makes this place.

Everything went well. The room was very clean and spacious

Comfortable beds. Breakfast was hot but the same everyday. Great location for access to Mt rainer.

Great stay at this hotel. Front desk help was very nice and offered us a free glass of wall on check in. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good. One suggest, they might want to start breakfast earlier during the summer. I thought 7am was late.

We had a very nice stay there. The staff was great! The room was a bit on the small side, but we had four people in the room, so that's partly the reason.

Very nice room. Good location to the park. Staff was very friendly.

I was so impressed with our stay at Crest Lodge. It was pretty close to White Pass Ski resort which was convenient for us. Our room was immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. And the breakfast was AWESOME! Very pleased, we'll definitely be back.

Clean, convenient, nice included breakfast. Charming older hotel. Grazing elk nearby was a treat.

The hotel is old and simple but the staff are very nice and helpful, they try very hard to make our stay comfortable.

We stayed one night and chose this hotel because the park hotels and everything in Ashford was already booked. We were very pleasantly surprised - the hotel was comfortable, the hosts were very nice, and it was a quick drive back to the park in the morning.

Wanted to check out Rainier and this was, to be honest, not my first choice. But everywhere else filled up and this seemed as good as any. We were pleasantly surprised. Amazing couple runs the hotel and they are so helpful and so nice. Even free wine in the evenings! The breakfasts weren't stellar but as far as hotel breakfasts go, they were more than enough and more than generous. I expected low quality rooms but got a room any bit as nice as the higher priced name-brand hotels. Everyone was happy. All kinds of accommodations. Even could watch wildlife come and go from our window! Also, the hotel is within excellent proximity to Rainier. Packwood is fun as well. Would definitely recommend and plan on coming again whenever we want to go to Rainier! Stay here! You won't be disappointed!
