I had made my reservation for a night here online and received my reservation confirmation via email. On the website it says reservations MUST be made online. I called and confirmed that they would still be a me to check me in as I wouldn't be arriving till around 7:30. They were abrubt on the phone and seemed rude but...

You use the word rude so many times in your review, but in reality we tried to give you another room and you were the one who came unglued and started being rude! Of course you are not going to admit your unprofessional behavior and our willingness to help you out with another room! I'm kind of glad you left!...

We stayed in room 3, which is one of the more expensive rooms, specifically because it had a kitchenette. However, the kitchenette lacked even the most basic kitchen equipment such as pans, a can opener, or dish towels. As a result of not being able to prepare food, we canceled our second night stay and the owner was unwilling to...

You need to look up the definition of a kitchenette! When you rent a hotel room, it doesn't come with a cook stove and pots and pans! Our kitchenette came with a mini fridge, microwave, dishes and silverware as well as double sink and cabinets! There is no place in our advertising where we say cook stove or pots and...

Buffalo Run Inn was a wonderful place to stay. The room was warm, clean, and comfortable. The owner went above and beyond to accommodate requests to make sure we had everything we needed. Would recommend.

A Gem located on Hwy 20, the accommodations were unexpected, don't judge a book by it's cover. The rooms are comfortable and clean. In the common area there is coffee, teas, cereals, pastrys, fruit, a microwave and a fridge full of different breakfast items. I would recommend this motel. I'll have to come back when Hwy 20 opens for the...

This is a great little motel on the north Cascades Hwy! You can see the pride in ownership! The rooms are very clean and very well maintained. The owners are super friendly and helpful and made sure our stay with little ones was easy and stress free. We loved the European style breakfast with choices of pastries, breads, yogurts, fresh...

Great location, prices, clean and the continental breakfast goes above and beyond! The fun decor/themes in the bedrooms make me want to return and stay in each room! Looking forward to the buffalo restaurant across the street opening soon.

The room seemed clean enough but the only reason to choose this place is that there are no other accommodations around & it's your only choice if you want to visit the North Cascades but not camp. The "included" breakfast was abysmal, even the coffee was terrible. I'm afraid I just can't say anything good about this experience!

You can't say anything good about your experience, is because you never stayed with us! You called and threatened us with a bad review if we didn't refund your parents money for cancelling their reservation at the last minute! Shame on you!

The owner was not up front on the sleeping arrangements. Our first night at the inn, we walked into our room and there were three single beds with very limited space. No private bathroom in the room. You had to share a bathroom with other guests in the hallway. Not telling your guests about that is unprofessional. Luckily we didn't...

Thank you for the review, however you made the reservation on our website and all the information was printed in black and white!

Thank you for the 3 STAR review! Our Wi-Fi is fiber optic through the phone company! I admit that it is sometimes a little iffy, however it is complimentary! If I charged you an extra $10.00 for Wi-Fi, you would also be upset! Many customers leave the "Do Not Disturb" signs on the door when they leave, so the maid...

Don't judge this book by it cover. From the road this inn might not look like much, but the rooms are wonderful! We booked a slightly more pricey room so that we could have a bit more spaciousness....we walked into a Cabela's-appointed wonderland. Great appointments, microwave, fridge, dishes, cutlery....we had all we needed for a very comfortable stay. The innkeepers...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This historic 1889 roadhouse was a gathering place for all the gold miners, lumberjacks and mountain men traveling up the Skagit River into the North Cascades. Many a jug of moonshine has passed through the doors of the inn! It is located at the entrance to the North Cascades National Park and was totally renovated in 2004! A great meeting place for your North Cascades adventure! The Buffalo Run Restaurant is across the street! ... more   less
