5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Location is excellent for quick access to the Nisqually entrance of Mount Rainier National Park. Across the street from a gas station and a couple of dining options as well. Whittaker’s also has food options and a great staff! Everyone was very kind and helpful. We had a great stay!

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Staff & service
The entire experience was overshadowed right off the bat b/c I thought Expedia had already charged me for the booking & attempted to show my bank statement. A mistake had been made w coding & was corrected, but in the meantime I was treated like I was trying to get out of paying for the room. Instead of trying to de-escalate the situation, they just kept saying 'you cant stay if you don't pay'. 'We have to charge you if you want the room'. I was panicked & scared my vacation was ruined b/c I thought I was paying twice & didnt have enough left over to pay for anything else. Then the owner was called who smelled heavily of alcohol & escalated the situation more by threatening to kick me out for upsetting the staff & customers. What a nightmare all around.
