I was a little disappointed we didn't get to meet the owner so many people have mentioned in their reviews :) Instead we were checked in by a very nice lady. Anyway - the Buffalo Run Inn is pretty good value. We were in Room 10, which I can recommend if you're travelling with a baby - the room is...

Thank you for the great 4 STAR review! If you would have ate at the best restaurant in town, the Buffalo Run Restaurant, you would have met me! I work the night shift!

A great selection of exotic meats! This is a very cute, and local restaurant. The patio looked very inviting, and looked like it would be a great place to dine on a warmer day. The service was great and the whole restaurant was clean and neat. The food was very good. My buffalo burger and especially the onion rings were...

We were in cabin 8 which was very clean and comfortable, but a little small. Breakfast was certainly satisfactory with good coffee. If you have a chance, take the road over the bridge across from the Inn. After traveling a few miles you will enter the national forest. Continue for a couple miles and you will come to an opening...

What a nice and friendly location. A few miles outside the West Entrance to North Cascades National Park. Good food, friendly people, nice cold breakfasts. A National Park Visitor Center a couple of miles away. Glad we were able to get reservations. The room was spacious and well kept.

Happy to see a historic buildings being well maintained and put to use. We stayed in rooms 6 and 3. Six was on the first floor corner, so lots of foot and auto traffic outside. Had to keep the drapes closed for privacy, so room was dark. Liked room 3 much better. Quieter and brighter. Large, with kitchenette and small...

Though a simple country motel with no frills, this inn is run intelligently by a charming couple. I liked its online reservation system with a table showing rooms that are available each day and you can pick and choose your own room. Rooms are clean, spacious and separated far apart from each other. Despite its location (on State Highway 2),...

Thank you for the very nice 4 STAR review! The inn is located on State Route 20! I am confused about your comment about the Buffalo Run Restaurant! You said "the food is plenty, but not very good for the price you pay". Does this statement mean that the food would be excellent if it was cheaper??? You failed to...

We actually ended up staying in two different rooms as booking is done by room number and I couldn't find two consecutive nights in one room for labor day weekend. I booked rather last minute. Anyway, each room was unique, not cookie cutter like the typical chain motel/hotel. The first had a beautiful appliqué quilt and rustic wooden furniture. The...

I've read all the reviews below, but I booked here because I was going rafting with my 13 year old daughter and needed a place with two queen beds or adjoining rooms. I researched every hotel in the area and decided on Room 3 here since it had exactly what I needed at a fair (if not too cheap) price....

Thank you for the super 5 STAR review! When someone gives us a review that is honest and true like yours, you will not find any sarcasm from me! However when the problem is not specific and I feel the individual just likes to complain about everything, then I get sarcastic! We work very hard at keeping our inn very...

We stayed for three nights in room 11 during a particularly hot part of August. While there is aircon in the shared lounge, there was none in the bedroom which meant you had to have the window open- rooms 11 and 12 both face the road so it can be a bit noisy. Thankfully there wasn't much traffic overnight. To...

We are leaving the North Cascades today. We had a lovely time and Marshall and Michelle who run the Buffalo Inn and Buffalo Restaurant were part of that success. I called last minute and Marshall. Marshall quickly got my stay booked. We had two rooms for the 5 of us. Marshall had set up the larger room with the bath...

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
