We stayed in their "cottage" which is actually about a mile down the road from the main lodge/bunkhouse. I would say, however, that this place is a fantastic spot for spending the night before and/or after your visit to Mt. Rainier. They have great bedding options with mixtures of single/double beds, queens, and rooms that hold a number of people at bargain prices. It's hard to find rooms this inexpensive in Washington and for under $100/night with the ability to have a bed for 5 to 8 people it is VERY affordable and it's comfortable. Sure it's not brand new, but it's clean and gets the job done with a high level of comfort. The little coffee, breakfast, ice cream shop on site is great and it's very close to several other places to eat including bar/restaurant type spots. They don't appear to advertise the fact that they have a hot tub as well, which is great especially for cooler, wetting northwest evenings. As far as specifically the cottage, this was a very fun place. It's essentially one room with 2 single beds and a queen bed with a small kitchen, fireplace, couch, 4 seater dinning table and small bathroom (that's the 2nd room). There are no doors separating the beds from each other or the living/kitchen area, so if the kids go to bed at 8, so do you. There is a nice wood patio and covered porch. It's rather secluded, but you do get some road noise. My wife and kids and I had a great evening of just hanging out, making dinner, and enjoying ourselves. It was very comfortable and if you are looking to not hear other guests, nor be concerned that your noisy kids will bother others, the cottage is a great option. Honestly, I would have preferred to have spent less money for a lodge room and be able to walk to the hot tub, close by bar(s)/restaurants, and breakfast/coffee in the main lodge, but if you are into seclusion and don't mind a very short drive (1.5 miles) the cottage is for you. There are a number of lodging options near the Longmire entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and this is probably your best comfort, cost, location combination bet.

If you're looking for a sleek hotel with lots of services, Whittaker's won't be for you. I loved the down-home atmosphere that makes you slow down and relax. It's a throwback to an earlier time. Room One was perfect for our family needs. It was very large and was maybe one of the quietest. The beds were good (others had complained about their softness) and the bathroom was fine. The only sounds we heard from other guests were footsteps from upstairs, but that ended early in the evening. We loved sitting on the lawn and porch furniture and taking in the country air. It was great having the coffeehouse/ice cream available. Really a nice time.

Room Tip: Room one is spacious and quiet.

This hotel was originally a lumber camp bunkhouse and retains much of it's basic-ness. Rooms are very small and simple (no TV, small bathroom and shower), but very close to the entrance to Mt Rainier National Park and they have better rates, than trying to stay within the park. There are a few small restaurants walking distance from the hotel, as the hotel does not have it's own. Breakfast is not included but the morning person will whip you up a good breakfast from their menu (and it's very good). Enjoyed our short stay (we were the only people in the hotel at the time).

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the back as highway traffic can be noisy at times

This little property that is offset from the hotel itself is perfect for a group of 3 or more. Hidden away from the road, I had peace and quiet for two solid days. Equipped with a basic necessities, you have room to spread out as the yard is large enough to host a bbq for 10+ people. Comfortable accommodations with access to grocery, restaurants, etc, I will return again to visit Rainier.

We stayed in room 22 for two nights. I understood this was a basic motel but at $120/night, I expected some comfort. The beds are terrible. They must be over 20 years old. The metal spings are easily felt at the top of the mattress which is very firm. The sheets were dingy and the pillows so flat, I needed three of them for support. There is no TV or hair dryer. Apparently, there is no housekeeping as well although there was an envelop to provide a tip. No-one cleaned our room which wasn't surprising given that the bathroom badly needed a good scrubbing when we arrived. We went out for breakfast. The small cafe is open but only serves pre-made frozen breakfast sandwiches that are heated in the microwave. The coffee was good. The pizza and burger place on the same grounds was great. Eat there and stay somewhere else.
