I would like to start by saying I did not stay in the cabins. My review is for the room. Overall the layout was nice and the tv worked fine. The coffee pot was a full size pot which was good. My issue is the room temperature would not get above 65 degrees. Even with the small space heater the room was very cold. We ended up leaving at 7 am because it was to cold to stay there. We hiked some of Rainier and were excited to get to the hotel and warm up but that never happened. Even with two blankets or was cold. I would not stay here again. I would try the cabin though. They ha e wood burning fireplaces.

Gross and the owners don't care.
If you are okay with bugs and gaping holes in your refrigerator, foreign hair in your shower, stained, ripped rugs, cobwebs, and dirt in your bed, then you'd be okay staying here. We had a "fireplace" in our bedroom, which was really a spidery woodstove, no tools and a fire extinguisher that hadn't been serviced in years. When we arrived around 7 pm, the office and store were closed. Only one of us had cell service, thank goodness, in the area and had to call and call then, walk over to some strange trailer and knock on the door. Finally after almost half an hour someone came to help us, but they had no record of our reservation. Despite our experience and rough check in, the owner refused to even consider a discount saying he would talk to the cleaning lady. This wasn't as much of a matter of cleanliness as it is neglect. The store even had years of dust on especially on their canned food goods. Wouldn't stay here. Find another place.

We prepaid, but ended up arriving after the office had already closed. After a brief panic, we realized a map and directions to our assigned cabin had been left for us. The cabin had the heater and lights on with a cord of wood set up by the fireplace. Turned out to be a lovely night in a great location.
