As is to be expected from a National Park inn, the accommodations are sketchy. No surprise, though. The setting is to die for and the main lobby was fabulous. The pianist who played uninterrupted each night was a special treat and could be listened to from any of many fun seating options. The disappointing thing was our meal. Since people...

Amazingly, the inn does not have its own designated parking, so if you arrive when the park is crowded, you have to fight it out for parking with everyone else. We had the misfortune to be there when the large parking area was being repaved. They were repaving the entire parking area at once and the only parking was on...

We stayed three nights at Paradise Inn for a visit in early September. It was a very comfortable, enjoyable visit and staying at the inn made it easy to enjoy the park from before sunrise to after sunset. The inn does not have televisions, nor internet or cellular service. Under normal circumstances that is a wonderful break from day to...

We stopped for lunch here while touring MRNP. I've dined at the inns/lodges in several national parks - Grand Canyon, Glacier, Yellowstone, Pretty much all run along the same theme. Rustic but elegant huge formal dining rooms with park views. Linen table clothes & napkins, uniformed waitstaff, set dining hours and limited-selection menus with very expensive (after all you're paying...

We came here for our anniversary and had, overall, a nice experience. The rooms are small and drafty but clean. We enjoyed that it wasn't modern and had a nostalgic feel. The restaurant was the low point of our stay. The food was hit and miss. The breakfast buffet was not worth what we paid as it was slightly better...

What a wonderful place to stay and explore. The best way to do it is to stay at the inn for a few days and really enjoy the area. Don't touch your car just walk up the hillside. Dozens of trails for everyone including wheelchair access. Lots of different rooms to choose from. A real American treasure. Food is also...
