Cool setting, nestled in between forested mountains. Elk came to the property lawn at night. The receptionist was the nicest person I have ever met at a hotel, and gave us great tips for our trip to Rainier. And they found a way to make the breakfast wonderful, even though COVID is making that difficult and other hotels are only offering dry, boring stuff. They asked us to each fill out a checklist of what we wanted in our "to-go" breakfast bag the next morning; included options such as a choice of donut, yogurt, breakfast sandwich to warm in our room-microwave, hard-boiled egg, fruit, juice, choco milk. Way to go Cowlitz! You found a way to still show your customers you care. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place for our one night stay while visiting the area around Mt. Rainier. Cute lodge that was extremely clean. Even though the breakfast was grab and go it was very good and plenty to fill us up. The highlight was watching the elk in the hotel green space for a few hours that evening!!

The room was very nice. Pulled up to elk in the front lawn and even by our window in our room. Lady at the front desk was very nice and processed our check in quick and personable. She even suggested the blue spruce lounge which had really good food.

The room was spacious, clean, and had the best water pressure of any hotel that I've ever stayed. This is a great hotel for skiing White Pass or visiting Mt. Rainier. It is in walking distance to restaurants and just 20 minutes to the ski hill. We will definitely return.

Great place to stay for skiing at White Pass. Beautiful lodge. Noise from outside is my only concern (and it's not even that big of a concern) - you can easily hear anyone outside the door or walking up the stairs.
