The TV was fine, the microwave and refrigerator certainly adequate. The location was perfect.
We had no hot water at night and no one was in the office. We had to request it be fixed in the morning--a simple "breaker that doesn't quite have contact so was not working" that should have been fixed long ago! The mattress sagged and the floor in the unit above was very squeaky, disrupting sleep.
given attic room on 90 degree day with NO air conditioning. had to ask for a fan and then was given a portable one. firetrap room up steep steps. one exit in hallway. all I can say positively is "we survived."
This was the worst motel we've stayed in in the U.S. (we've been in worse places in third world countries). It's right next to the highway, with no sound dampening, so lots of traffic noise, especially as we had to open all the windows, because the room was hot and there's no air conditioning. The room smelled bad, too. The bathroom is old, musty, and tiny, and it has a serious tripping hazard -- the floor was at two levels, and it stepped up about an inch to the toilet and shower. The step-up was covered by an old piece of carpet, so we didn't notice it at first, making it even more dangerous (I tripped on first entering). The furniture is very old and the rooms are musty smelling. The rug in the main room is patched unattractively, with sharp, pokey things in various places. The furniture is in very bad condition and some is broken. And the window coverings were broken (couldn't open or close). And they charged $100/night! We would highly recommend avoiding this place!
it is dark
The motel was literally at the gate to the park, so ideally placed for visiting it. It was on an attractive site, complete with restaurant and shop. The room was big.
My room wasn't a separate cabin, but attached to the end of the restaurant with another room above. There was a lot of noise from the side and above at times.
Next to the Park...
As I arrived at the inn and asked check-in, I could hardly believe the situation faced by my family. All rooms were sold out including the room I reserved through Booking.com and I was asked to stay in RV or move to other motel introduced by the inn. I couldn't help but stay in RV and was very cold at night.
Cleanses is poor, for example coffee maker was not cleaned and remained past coffee.
location, bed, breakfast
The location was perfect and serene. Staff was so friendly and beyond amazing assuring all of our needs were met during our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Would definately stay again and recommend to others.
Location. Room was ready and clean.
Honesty of Host. We reserved a room in the hotel, which was guaranteed. Upon checking-in the host offered us a cabin for an additional $20.00, which we declined. He then stated that he didn't have a room in the hotel and gave us a cabin for the agreed price.
Loved the location, literally right outside of entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park.
The bathroom was tiny and if you're over 5'7" you'll hit your head on ceiling.
We enjoyed our stay at the Gateway Inn. It is old and in a remote location so don't expect a Hyatt. The location is great and the staff are very friendly. We loved it!
Mattresses are a little old and not super comfy. Wifi isn't great but why would you want it on a trip to Mt. Rainier?
Great location Great cabins Great food Loved the deer and rabbits
There is nothing to dislike here
Rustic, romantic, location, water was good, had a fridge, microwave & coffee maker w/coffee. Gresh towels, friendly staff.
Can't think of anything except would have liked better weather.
couldn't be closer to the park; beds relatively comfortable and space decent, though definitely a "roughing it" feel. fridge and microwave/coffee maker in room were great. could have done without the tv/cable since we'd rather have a vacation where we aren't having to be the bad guys about wanting the TV off in favor of books ;-)
no wi-fi in room. Would love to have been able to check email and send photos of successful climb of Mt. Rainier from room ;-). Didn't try restaurant, but the look of it sort of scared us off.
Good location. Coffee maker, fridge, microwave.
No hair dryer, iron. Stairs up to room - no elevator, no help offered. Small double bed in cramped room.
Owner nice seems like a nice guy. Courteous and polite. Good location being supplies from Wal-Mart before going to the area--expensive
Cleaning of the place. Had to ask for coffee bags everyday. The room was not made every day, and one day the housekeeper left the door slightly ajar.
We stayed at cabin #9. The cabin was decent and clean, with refrigerator and microwave oven. We arrived late, the manager was very helpful and provided us with information about the park.
The location was great. It is about 100 yards from the entrance to Mt. Rainer National Park. Beautiful surroundings.
The manager is too cheap to hire enough people. Most are doing two jobs like the cook also cleans rooms. There are not enough light bulbs and the toilet paper is the thinnest I have ever seen. The employees do their best to make it a good experience for the guests.
Location is excellent, just a few yards from the park entrance. There is also a restaurant nearby.
There was no electricity in my cabin besides one bed lamp. The owner gave me a flashlight, but the comfort was pretty rudimentary.
This was advertised as a cabin, but at check in we discovered it was a motel room. At around 11pm we discovered the plumbing wasn't working and was backing up into the shower. There was no phone in the room, we had no cell service and the front desk closed at 8pm. I am 7 months pregnant and couldnt use the bathroom all night. In the morning we could not shower as there was raw sewage backed up into the shower, even the sick was slowly filling with it. My husband went to complain and was told by a staff member that they had discovered the problem the night before and that it was even backed up in the owners bathroom. She said she would clean a shower in another room for us to use. He then asked to speak to the owner to explain the situation, who told him that he "had never had a complaint before and that he would give us free breakfast". My husband explained that I am vegan and there was nothing on the menu that I could eat he said "ok then nothing you get". I went to speak to the owner myself to tell how severe the smell was in our room and how I was unable to even use the bathroom all night. He wasn't even apologetic! He then had the audacity to accuse us of "playing trick for not pay" and for "planning this all night"! He knew of the problem himself, yet was willing to call us liars regarding the condition of the room! Never have we been treated this way and never have we been so completely offended! My husband is a Senior Chief in the U. s Navy and had just returned for being underway. This trip was a much needed time away for the two of us that turned into disaster! Do not stay at the gateway inn!!!!!
We thought we rented a "Cabin", as stated online. However it was not a cabin at all. There were toenail clippings in the old shag carpet. And the musty smell made it hard to sleep.
Close to Mt Rainier
For the price not worth renting. Floors were uneven, made a few of us dizzy. Fireplace was broke along with accessories to it. Very old and outdated. Would not rent again.
