National Park Inn

Ashford, Washington State

The hotel

The National Park Inn offer a chance to revive and recuperate but you'll also find a wealth of outdoor activities all close by, including the renowned Wonderland Trail. No sooner than you've stepped outside of your comfortable and cosy lodgings you'll be treated to a blanket of seasonal flowers festooned as far as the eye can see. This area of North America just yells 'explore and appreciate' which is why it's become so highly regarded by nature and adventure lovers for over a century. There's no better place to simply sit and stare and once you've found your favourite spot, perhaps in front of the fire or on the outdoor viewing porch, you'll soon experience what mountain life in Washington is all about.

We really enjoyed our time at the National Park Inn. We loved having wine on the porch each evening with that wonderful view. There is no WiFi or TV, but we came prepared with movies loaded on an iPad and books. (Paradise has excellent cell service if you ever wanted to run up there to check something.) The food was ok - expensive but very… Read more

This is truly a lovely place to stay within the national park! We had a room with a private bath, room 6, and had an incredible view of Mt. Rainier! The room is a little small, but after all it was built many years ago so there is some charm in the older places! If you are out exploring and hiking, as we were, it was a wonderful place just to… Read more

The room is a little small, but after all it was built many years ago so there is some charm in the older places! If you are out exploring and hiking, as we were, it was a wonderful place just to collapse and fall asleep! The staff was very friendly! We loved the complimentary coffee and tea that was available all day until 10 pm. The wood burning fireplace in the lounge was so cozy to just sit there and warm up, relax, and enjoy! I would not hesitate for a second to stay at this historic inn! Read less

We stayed at National Park Inn in mid April. Amazing time to come. Only seven cars parked when we came out early in the morning. We drop up to Paradise at 6 a.m. and there were only five cars for a gorgeous sunrise. The Paradise Inn was buried in snow and was being dug out to prepare for opening. Great time to visit with lots of snow. The… Read more

We drop up to Paradise at 6 a.m. and there were only five cars for a gorgeous sunrise. The Paradise Inn was buried in snow and was being dug out to prepare for opening. Great time to visit with lots of snow. The manager told me that they were only opening rooms with private baths this spring and summer which is why National Park Inn is fully booked for the whole summer. Likewise, Paradise Inn is similarly limited. So book the alternatives quickly. Read less

Stayed one night. Front desk service bell not working so waited half an hour to check in. It’s very quiet at this time and nobody is at the fireplace room. The lobby’s restroom is very well kept and smelled great! Complimentary coffee and tea from the front office. No wifi or TV in the room but the bathroom is well stocked and even has a tub.

Stayed one night. Front desk service bell not working so waited half an hour to check in. It’s very quiet at this time and nobody is at the fireplace room. The lobby’s restroom is very well kept and smelled great! Complimentary coffee and tea from the front office. No wifi or TV in the room but the bathroom is well stocked and even has a tub. No hair dryer but heater at night works very well. No elevator and rooms are on the second floor. Pillows are super thick for our likings but the beds and blankets are comfy. Our room’s window faces Mt Rainier, great view in the morning. Lastly, there are some confusion in the Google map, we were lucky not drive past this hotel as further into Paradise was gated. I think the correct address is the one with “east” on the road name. Read less

There were the usual Covid precautions like wearing masks. The restaurant did take out only, which you can eat in your room, the front porch (brrr) or the fireplace lounge room . This is also an excellent place to unplug- no TV, cell reception or WiFi. It was a nice decent comfortable place to stay in a beautiful National Park. Read less
