Very clean and comfortable. Valentines cupcakes were a nice touch!
Nice people. Clean accommodations, and level parking site. Couldn't ask for more.
Clean, comfortable, beautiful view even in pouring rain. Right on the river. Nice rustic room. Just a great experience. And the couple at the desk were just great.
The managers were very polite as they always are and very helpful it is always a pleasure to stay there when I go to hit any of the peninsula rivers
Clean, quiet, great staff, very accommodating and flexible
My family and I were extremely impressed by the Quinault River Inn! There was beautiful scenery and had a very high class cabin feel. I couldn't have made the cabin rooms more pristine and I am slightly OCD everything looked brand new and fresh. Very friendly owners that made you feel like you were family. Will return, great vacation stop!
Charming inn on a quiet and rustic spot. Friendly couple who owns the place, moved a year ago from Georgia to Amanda Park, WA. Room not very large but space enough and spotless clean! Comfortable bed and good shower. Really nice and romantic setup with a porch along the rooms with seats to enjoy the scenery. Because there’s a beautiful view on the forests and mountains of Olympic NP. I think about 2 miles to trails like the Rain Forest Nature Trail and a bit further Quinault Lake. Also some nice restaurants nearby (Salmon House can I recommend with lakeview to see the sunset).
Nice rooms........................very clean
I have been staying at the Quinault River Inn for many years during fishing season. The rooms are always very clean and better than your average "fisherman's motel" The view is specacular in any season and the covered deck is always a great place to visit with other people and see how their day in God's Country was. Just love this place !
Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Owners were very helpful in deciding on dinner suggestions. Very close to hiking and sightseeing.
Great location for exploring the Hoh rainforest and local walks. Staff were very helpful. We highly recommend Salmon restaurant and the walk to pizza place was also good. Enjoyed sitting in the seats by the river and the tables on the deck where we enjoyed breakfast were an added bonus. Would highly recommend.
Great location right off Rt 101. Front desk very helpful giving us information on what to do, where to eat and checking us in. Loved the view of the river and enjoyed a glass of wine sitting on the chairs along it after dinner.
Enjoyed our stay at this lovely property. Managers were great in helping us plan our 2 days there. We did some wonderful trails and the restaurant suggestions especially The Salmon House were very good. The property is so nice with blackberries everywhere for your picking and eating. Loved the tables on the deck outside our room for having coffee and sweet rolls for breakfast. There is also a community fire pit for roasting marshmallows or making s'mores. The room was good and very clean. Would definitely recommend.
The RV Parking area is very nice and neat. The Inn appears to be clean and well kept (we visited in an RV)The Owners and Inn Keepers were very nice and accommodating. The only down fall is the neighboring facilities. You are parked less than a block from Hwy 101 and the commercial buildings that are located between the Hwy and you run their exhaust and fans at all hours and the local neghbors' car needs a muffler. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and it was well located for visiting the Quinault Lake and hiking the near by trails. The Inn itself looks to be very inviting.
Lovely stay at the Inn. Very convenient to drive the Quinault and Hoh Rainforest, both of which are spectacular! The hosts here made us feel very much at home! Clean and comfy rooms with a lovely porch where we enjoyed our morning coffee. Short walk to the pizza place and also the internet café both of which had really good food! An extra night would have been great but unfortunately our schedule did not allow. Recommend this Inn highly if you are in the area!
Best place to stay in the area.
"Old school" hospitality -- the way it used to be: friendly staff -- great suggestions on the local area; wonderful room -- not fancy, but exactly what you need (clean, comfortable, convenient); picturesque setting just up from the Quinault River. The view and morning fresh air are spectacular! The native artwork in the rooms is a nice, special touch. Of the 3 hotels we stayed in during our visit to Olympic National Park, this was by far the best. When we return to the area, this will be our first choice!
Very nice folks, had a pleasant stay at a RV site, wish they had sewer hook-ups, but overall a nice spot.
Thank goodness for the air conditioning. Very nice room, clean and well kept. All staff friendly and helpful. Location convenient to all sites in the area. Excellent value. Would return.
The grounds surrounding both the inn and the RV spaces are immaculate and most relaxing.My only wish is that there was a shower for us campers so that we could stay even longer and really enjoy the Quinault River Inn at our leisure!!
Loved this place. Stayed in several areas of Washington. Enjoyed this area the most. Quiet and Beautiful. The room was neat and clean, had everything needed. The people at the front desk were friendly and gave us directions to the sights we wanted to see. Would recommend this place to friends and family who come to this area.
What a wonderful place, beautiful setting, lovely clean room, marvelous hosts, delicious ripe blackberries, and such hospitality! We were there during the solar eclipse - and had been unable to find any of the glasses (and my 15 year old grandson badly wanted to see the eclipse). My daughter happened to mention (shortly before the eclipse) that we had not found any glasses and the owner, who had an extra pair, gave them to us - such graciousness! What a wonderful place to stay!
What a LOVELY place to hang your head and look out at the peaceful river. The accommodations were beyond our expectations. We stayed all four nights too! We especially loved our hosts!
Great place to stay. Charming location. Very warm and helpful managers. Extremely clean and well kept.
We have just returned from a wonderful two night stay at the Quinault River Inn. The inn is charming--the rooms are very clean and quiet. The location is beautiful overlooking the river; the inn hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. I will definitely recommend the Quinault River Inn to others heading to the area; and we will definitely stay here again when we are back...someday.
My husband and I spent our babymoon hopping across different areas of the Olympic National Forest and spent one night at the Quinault River Inn. The rooms were fantastic and there is a great story behind every room and the art work, the check in very pleasant and everyone was so nice. There is an amazing view of the river with lovely tables to sit outside on the porch and have a glass of wine or dinner. There is also a fire pit if you like to build some Smores or just hang out. My husband and I spent one night at the "fancier" lodge down the road and we were sorely disappointed with that property and could have kicked ourselves for not spending our 2 nights in the area at the Quninault River Inn
Very personable managers, room clean and very welcoming. I even took notice of the black & white prints on the wall. Loved being able to sit out on the porch to eat a small dinner with my friend. RELAXING a 10. Great view, great grounds! Hope to return someday!
We stayed for 3 nights in a 35 ft. 5th Wheel. There is not a lot to see at this end of Olympic Nat. park. The temps were in the high 90s while we were there. We got a little break while hiking in the rainforest. There are only 6 RV spots and they are well kept. No other facilities and no dump station. There is a little store and a pizza sandwich place right on 101 that you can walk to. The store is a little scary as the floors are uneven. The food at Dino's was pretty good. Since it was too hot to cook we got take out from them twice. The owners of the Inn seemed very nice and the front of the inn is very well kept and is right on the river. It has a community firepit.
Lake Quinault is a hidden gem and the Quinault River Inn was a perfect base to explore it from. Clean, comfortable, sweet rooms and the friendliest owners and staff in the world. We'll be back and have already told a few friends.
As we were taking the scenic route between Port Ludlow and Cougar, WA, we stayed overnight at the Quinault River Inn. The setting was beautiful, the Inn was quiet and comfortable, and everyone we encountered, from employees to guests, were helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the Hospitality Room with snacks and hot beverage choices.We loved the artwork around the property and enjoyed reading about the artists in the information booklet in the room. We particularly liked sitting beside the river to relax in the peace and quiet and watch the moon rise.We would definitely stay in the Quinault River Inn again and will recommend it to our friends.
Great place to stay. Super clean, friendly and the grounds are beautiful.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, it was so peaceful and quiet, we really enjoyed our stay I would stay again and would recommend it to a friend. Would give 5 stars if beds were a little more comfortable .
So glad we found this charming hotel in a stunning location. The owners and staff are extremely welcoming and helpful.
A very nice property with absolutely wonderful managers. Beds are comfortable, bathroom very clean and an excellent location to visit both the rain forest and beaches Eager to return for many other visits.
Super stay close to olympic. Campsites nice and clean. Owners very friendly, even at our very late arrival!
The owner of this hotel really nice and their service also very good. The hotel have a nice view for the lake. We love it very much.
My daughter and I had such a restful stop there on our whirlwind tour of Washington State. The kindness of the owners, beautiful surroundings, comfortable and clean room will remind us to that this is the only place to stay in the Quinalt area.
Quiet and clean. Good place to stop before heading further up the Olympic Peninsula. Bed was comfortable, which is a plus for me!
We really enjoyed our stay in the RV space at the Inn. It was a beautiful setting and close to many areas for exploring. It was quiet, clean and pleasant! Thank you!
We fell in love with the beautiful view of the Quinault River, as well as the kindness and hospitality of the owners and managers of this small, personable inn. The room was clean and comfortable, with a lovely covered deck just outside. We loved it so much, we had to stay there again on our way back south. Lake Quinault and its surrounding rainforest is magical, and this inn is a perfect place to stay while doing some "forest bathing".
We stayed at the inn on June 14, 2017. Very nice and quiet place on the river. The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful. Would recommend staying at the inn if you are in the area.
We loved this quiet little inn on the river. Perfect location to explore the surrounding area, at a reasonable price,
wonerful place, wonderful stay, nice people! thank you!
We really enjoyed our stay. The inn was small and clean which made it very peaceful. The owners were very friendly and wonderful people to work with. They would help you with anything that you needed. I would recommend if you are passing through the area to stop in and spend the night.
Stayed one night on a NW motorcycle trip. Great stay and very accommodating host.
Very nice place to stay and central to all things to see and do. Our hosts were more than accommodating and so nice. A must place to stay if you are in the area.
We stayed for 1 night during our trip around the Olympic Park Loop. The room was lovely, with everything we needed and the location was perfect. Thank you!
We brought our camper van and dog to stay at one of the RV spaces at Quinalt River Inn. We loved the clean grass lots, level spots,tidy grounds, big back yard to throw a frisbee for the pup. There is also a lovely fire pit by the rivers edge with complementary firewood. The setting was very relaxing, but great access to Quinalt and the local hikes, sites. Jim, Angela and the crew were very friendly and accommodating. Super spot.
everything was perfect as always. thanks for all you do
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 )!

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.

To The Quinault River Inn: “Wonderful place! We stayed two nights and it was very, very nice. The pergola is fabulous and the craftsmanship impressive. A great place to sit and watch the rain. We’ll be back. The staff and crew VERY friendly and helpful.
A first class operation and, yes, you may use our names.
P.S. Patty is Executive director of Visit Kitsap, the tourism organization for the Kitsap Peninsula.
P.S.S. We were on a ten-day road trip, as far as Salt Lake City and stayed at 6 different places; yours was the best, by far.”
