This wonderful, comfortable inn was the perfect base for my brother and my 2-1/2 days of hikes, where we found 4 of the world's largest Douglas firs in those incredible ancient forests above Lake Quinault! I'd give the inn 5 stars, but we could have used brighter reading lights and maybe an extra chair. The common kitchenette made up for the lack of a microwave oven in the room. Angela and Jim are superb, congenial innkeepers, and their housekeeper provided us with a squeaky-clean room! We highly recommend this inn for you future travelers, and urge you to stay at least 2 days to hike as many as those ancient forest loops as you can (especially the Gatton Cr.-Falls Cr. Loop and the shorter Rain Forest Nature Trail )!

Angela and Jim were the consummate hostess and host. They are absolutely wonderful. That being said, the Inn was absolutely wonderful as well. We had the most relaxing time for our weekend in May. The swallows and the hummingbirds kept us entertained as we sat out in-front of our room. We cannot get back to the Inn soon enough. 5 out of 5 Stars for both the Innkeepers and the Inn.

Thank you so much for waiting up for us. We appreciated your care and hospitality. I slept so well the night we were there. I don't know if it was the river, the quiet or just feeling safe and at home. What a beautiful morning!

If your looking for a weekend getaway, this is the place.The rooms are within a stones throw from the river with a covered patio to enjoy a glass of wine.Everything was super clean and comphy. I needed some getaway time and this was the perfect spot.

Great For Fisherfolks
Your City: Fall City

The Rivers Inn is the BEST place to stay in the Olympics for hiking, fishing, or just plain hanging out..clean rooms, great services, free coffee and mints.. Great location as well...please remove the water savers from the showers is the only piece of feedback, as we need more water after a very cold day on the rivers:):)

Perfect location for the fisherman. Walk to the launch. Rooms are spotless. Owners are awesome. Restaurant within walking distance. We'll definitely be back!!

Quiet stay
Your City: Tacoma

My favorite thing about this place is the location. It's soothing to just sit on the porch and watch the river flow by, or even to lay in bed and watch it out the window. The rooms themselves are always tidy, and I like the framed nature photographs that decorate the walls. There are also some Native woodwork pieces that are very interesting. This place will be my first choice to stay from now and on. I stay in Quinault a couple times every year, as I live in Tacoma not too far away.

by Roger Brazier on Quinault River Inn

We had a wonderful stay. Room was clean and neat. Nice and close to the boat launch for us fishermen. Great weather and the fishing was great!! Thank you for accommodating us by staying late for our check in.

Hidden Gem
Your City: Louisville

We arrived late after being contacted by phone by the manager that she was going to have room ready and waiting for us. We arrived after dark to a very clean, comfortable room. After making a quick trip to a local grocery, we came back and had a fire by the river that was prepared for us. What a great memory. We left the next morning but briefly met the managers, who were lovely. Would definitely recommend this quiet, extremely well kept and clean motel. 5 stars for location, cleanliness, and friendly atmosphere.

Best Place ever
Your City: Kelseville, CA

Jim and Angela were the best ever. We stayed in the RV area and had some trouble weth our RV. They were helpful and supportive and couldn't have been ncer to us. Thanks to them both, Susie and Brent

by Lisa Landis on Quinault River Inn

We really enjoyed our stay on the river. Since the hotel only has a few rooms, it's quiet and laid back. The owners are friendly and helpful, and they have worked hard to make it a clean, classy place. Nothing has been overlooked!

Very Scenic
Your City: Hood River, Oregon

great spot; friendliest hosts on the Penisula; excellent location and facilities; porch, gazebo, grounds, river-front and view are even better than advertised; rooms were immaculate w/ excellent and friendly sevice; internet/wi-fi was a bit inconsistent; overall: highly recommended, we will back!!

by Hao & Gideon on Quinault River Inn
Great spot
Your City: San Francisco, CA

We husband and wife stayed for 3 nights and were enchanted by the beautiful inn. We have so many things to thank for. Kind, thoughtful, hard-working managers and owners. Thank you for lending us an electric teakettle without being asked. Thank you for your restaurant and hiking trail recommendations. We loved pizzas at Dino's and many dishes at The Salmon House Restaurant. We did the Kestner Homestead trail, Maple Glade trail, Gatton Creek trail and the 31-mile drive around Lake Quinault and the Quinault River, as Jim recommended. Amazing!!! Thank you for telling us what to do in Tacoma.
Beautiful room #8: minimalist style (my favorite), tasteful decor, matching wood furniture handmade by the owner Pete, LCD TV, comfortable queen bed, quality towels and linen, beautiful landscape photographs and matching frames on the wall.
Beautiful gazebo built by owner Pete, including built-in benches and lights. Immaculate grounds with trees, plants, flowers, clean chairs, walking path, fire pit, BBQ hut, etc.
Heavy use of air fresheners in rooms. However, the maid vacuumed our room everyday and respected our wishes for no chemicals and no air fresheners during our stay. Excellent maid service.
Lovely, immaculate wooden porch with clean chairs and tables and hanging flower pots. Smokers lingered and smoked there, so we non-smokers could not enjoy the lovely porch at times. The smoke got into our room sometimes when we left the windows or door open for fresh air. Thank you for the fan. It circulated the air & helped freshen up the room. We suggest designating a well-posted smoking area away from the porch to protect your porch, area rugs, carpet, and rooms.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at the inn. It's one of the 6 places we stayed during our 3-week trip in the Pacific Northwest. It's a 9/10. We recommend it over Lake Quinault Lodge by Aramark for the room quality, customer service and attention to details by owners and managers.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights. Perfect place in beautiful location. Warm, welcoming and helpful hosts. Room was immaculate and very comfortable. Amenities in the room were great. The chairs and fire pit by the river were a real bonus. Highly recommend. Definitely would stay again.

by Anita on Quinault River Inn

Our families enjoyed picking blackberries by the river and having our meals on the balcony. We also really enjoyed chatting with the Sowards and the Baileys.This is definitely the place to stay around Lake Quinault - it's hard to leave!

RV stay
Your City: Trabuco Canyon

We enjoyed our stay. Felt limited at not being able to use the river. Cable and septic would have been better. Cable especially since there is little to do in the evening.
Really enjoyed the restaurant in front of the resort.
Staff was absolutely the nicest.

Great Place
Your City: Fall City

Great place to stay, wonderful clean rooms, fantastic service everytime. My only need is a better shower:) More pressure and more water would be great, remove the water savers as you reside in the Rain Forest:)..that would be the only change..oh and maybe decaf coffee packets:) Thanks again

A fine motel
Your City: Olympia

Very clean, comfortable, and nice artistic touches. The setting on the river is delightful.

Tranquil spot by the river
Your City: Issaquah

My wife and I planned a trip around the Olympic peninsula and we found the Quinault River Inn just a stone's throw from the lake. The rooms were comfortable with AC ( can't find that very often on the peninsula) and the owners were personable. Also, we got it at a fraction of the cost compared to places right on the lake. The riverfront was a great spot to have their tasty morning coffee!

Enjoyed the clean, well equipped rooms, the accommodating "innkeepers", and the beautiful surroundings! Nice to have the "Service Room" with micro, freezer, and extras such as oatmeal packets, tea, etc.

The children loved it! The adults loved it!

Reviewers: The Smiths from Santa Clara, CA, 8/04/15

We had a wonderful time staying at the Quinault River Inn RV sites. The children loved it! The adults loved it! We wished we could have stayed longer. They named the cluster of birch trees on your property ‘Bride’s Grove’ and spent most of their time there. Priceless. David was so friendly and we enjoyed his conversation. We definitely want to come back.  Thank You.
