Paradise Inn in Mount Rainier National Park in Washington

There are two lodges located within Mount Rainier. The Paradise Inn, a historic lodge built in 1916, lies in the very popular (and snowy) Paradise area. For this reason, it is open for only a few months, generally late May to late September. Just for reference, our photo of the Paradise Inn on this page was taken on July 2, 2009. The National Park Inn is located much lower, close to the Nisqually Entrance, in the Longmire area of the park. This inn remains open all year.

Ashford overnight lodging options

The small town of Ashford is located immediately outside of the Nisqually Entrance on the west side of the park. This entrance is most convenient to the very popular Paradise area of the park, and also the only part of the park that is open all year, at least in limited fashion. There are lots of choices in Ashford, though there are no “name brand” hotels. There are all sorts of small inns, hotels, cabins, and more. The link below will show reviews for some of them, and limited booking options. For cabins and other sorts of vacation rentals, see the section at the bottom of the page.

Packwood overnight lodging options

The small town of Packwood is located to the south of the park, near the Ohanapecosh entrance. This entrance is most convenient to the east side of the park, including Sunrise and Ohanapecosh. This entrance is open in the summer months only. As with Ashford, there are several choices in Packwood, but again no “name brand” hotels. The link below will show reviews for some of them, along with booking options. For cabins and other sorts of vacation rentals, see the section at the bottom of the page.
