Located 5 miles from the Nisqually entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, the Nisqually Lodge makes a great basecamp for exploring Longmire and Paradise. The lodge offers spacious, newly remodeled rooms in a variety of configurations, including rooms with two queen beds, a king room, and a large Family/Junior suite with four queen beds, a fireplace, and tons of extra space for kids.
Lodge amenities include a complimentary hot breakfast with waffles, sausages, eggs, and cereal, free Wi-Fi, and microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms. In the Northwest-themed lobby with a cathedral ceiling and stone fireplace, find complimentary tea, coffee, cocoa, and wine from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. for mom and dad. The staff is happy to make restaurant recommendations for dinner. This lodge is a good choice for budget-conscious families who want to avoid national park prices.

This is a nice hotel, maybe a little tired but clean and the location makes it a great stay for experiencing Mount Rainier NP. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable. Evening happy hour with free wine and beer. Typical free hot breakfast is nothing special.

We stayed for two nights in September. The room was comfortable, but there was no luggage rack for our suitcases. This drives my husband crazy. Do the not know we're traveling? So we had to put them on the floor. The wine was good and we had our own cheese and crackers. The breakfast was sort of Hampton Inn style. But overall it is convenient to Mt. Ranier and local restaurants.
