We stayed in one of the cabooses at the Hobo Inn and enjoyed it immensely. The cabooses are clean, tidy, comfortable and quiet. This is a type of hotel experience that will appeal to people who like trains, or just something a little out of the ordinary. The cabooses don't have phones or TV, but then again, we didn't stay there to watch TV. We did fell it was a little over priced at first, but breakfast was included for free and the food was outstanding! Huge portions and very delicious! One of the best omelettes I have ever had and the home made hash browns are incredible! So, considering that breakfast was included, and the breakfast was so outstanding, the price wasn't all that bad. The service at the restaurant was GREAT. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. So, if you're looking for a 5 star hotel, this won't be your cup of tea. But if you like trains and like to be in a railroad-type environment this is a fun place to stay, just because it's different. It's clean, quiet, comfortable and the food is OUTSTANDING! It's also a convenient place to be if you are riding the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad or are going to explore Mt. Rainier National Park.
