Such a great spot!
Your City: Longmont, CO

We had a great couple of nights here last September. The location by the river was quiet and peaceful. Easy trips into the park and out to the beach. Breakfast was just what we needed each morning and the few restaurants within walking distance made the evenings quite relaxing. Hope to be back again!

A Wonderful Stay
Your City: Austin

We were incredibly happy with our stay at the Inn. On our first day the managers provided us maps, information about local places to see and eat, and were always available to answer any questions or provide items we needed, such as a pack and play for our daughter. The rooms were clean, had all needed amenities, and looked out to the grounds, which were well kept. Being right next to the forest was a big plus. We had trails just a mile or two away from the Inn. It made it easy to travel back and forth during the day with our daughter who was 1 at the time. Above all, Jim and Angela were inviting, welcoming and incredibly helpful hosts during our three days. We would happily return.

A great one night stay with friendly hosts
Your City: Haines, AK

What a wonderful stay with gracious hosts; the room was clean and smelled good, amenities were fine, and it's a very comfortable place to stay, right on the Quinault River with Quinault Lake a 5 minute drive away. Internet does not reach the rooms however so don't plan on a lot of communication.

Your City: Oakland, CA

Jim and Angela are super-friendly and the information sheets they gave us were helpful. The rooms are clean and the setting is so peaceful. We were also there when the blackberries were ripe--yum!

Lovely stay!
Your City: Stroud

We only had a 1 night stay but it was everything we were looking for. Lovely room with great facilities and everything very clean and good quality. The bonus for us were the hummingbirds who we photographed from every angle many times. We loved the location by the river and the quiet mornings just watching the wildlife. Wished we could have stayed longer. Many thanks.

Great Place
Your City: Murfreesboro, TN

We stayed in a quaint little one-bed room at the Inn. It was comfortable, quite, and clean. Management was very nice and provided information on places to go in the area. Was a little off of the Quinault Lake "happening" area, but enjoyed being in the less busy part - less traffic, less people walking around, etc. Would stay here again.

by Dave Wilder on Quinault River Inn
Your City: Mountlake Terrace

This turned out great because I was not able to book initially but was on the waiting list on a popular weekend. A cancelation came up and I got a call for the open room. I came in a little late because of my event went late on Saturday night but got set up just fine. Thank-you!

by Robert on Quinault River Inn
Your City: Greensboro, NC

Our 2-night stay at your inn was exceptionally pleasant and restful. We enjoyed the beauty and tranquility of the Quinault River from our front porch area and found our room to be very comfortable and clean. The managers of the inn were gracious hosts whose friendliness added to our positive experience.

Nice surprise
Your City: Milton, WA

We were pleasantly surprised at how beautifully renovated the rooms and porch area were. The grounds were marvelous too, with the fire pit where we met new friends from Germany. The room was very quiet and spotlessly clean. The covered porch area has lovely tables and chairs to enjoy the forest and river views. Andrea, the manager was fabulous too. Thank you for a wonderful visit.

by Kathy on Quinault River Inn
Your City: Cannon Beach, OR

Lovely, quiet spot on the river! Convenient to explore the area. Clean and spacious, comfortable room and beds, excellent service by host/hostess. Liked watching the hummingbirds at the tables outside of the rooms. Small and friendly restaurants and mercantile within walking distance were an extra perk.

by John W on Quinault River Inn
Your City: Sebring, FL

An older Inn but very clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful in her advise of where to hike and where to dine. I would certainly recommend the Quinault River Inn.

Great place to stay in Quinault
Your City: Chester

Wonderful place to stay in Quinault. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean. Excellent, hearty breakfast available at the nearby Internet Cafe. Highly Recommend if you are visiting Quinault. Limited phone signal strength at the inn. Loved the proximity to the river, parks and trails. Enjoyed the hummingbird feeders.

Your City: St. Augustine

The ranger at the ranger station said that her mom stayed there and that she was OCD with cleanliness and loved it so much she recommended it to us, right on the river, quiet,clean, cozy and a great owner!

Great Stay... Clean, Quiet, Friendly
Your City: Tri-Cities, WA

Very nice place to stay for our father-son long weekend. The Quinault River Inn is a great base for hiking and driving tours of nearby beaches and rain forests. The Inn was the right combination of modern, clean, and peaceful. We look forward to repeating the experience.

Very pleasant experience
Your City: Los Angeles

The front desk hospitality and check-in process was great. Our favorite part was the fire ring as two other couples joined us while there. We shared experiences and enjoyed the nature. A couple of eagles showed up across the river and landed in a tree.

Quinault River Inn
Your City: Tacoma

Such a nice, quiet location right on the river. Rooms very clean and grounds well maintained. You can see the effort that the managers and owners put into this inn. Great extra touches, fresh flowers on the deck tables, extra coffee and even a fan in the room. Great location to many Olympic peninsula activities, waterfalls, hiking, Lake Quinault, beaches and the Hoh rain forest. Managers were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed meeting fellow travelers at the riverside campfire. We will gladly refer other travelers to this wonderful inn and look forward to staying here again.

A Peaceful Place to Stay

A lovely place to stay. Nice room, quiet and beautiful surroundings. Close to Rain Forest and many hikes,and not far from the Pacific Ocean. Jim and Angela are great Innkeepers. Knew all the ins and outs of the entire area which made it more enjoyable for us.

Perfect Place to Stay!
Your City: Mill Creek

We usually camp when we're fishing - but this is a great option when you want to be a little drier and more comfortable. Everything here is very well maintained - so much attention to detail. I love the local art (photography/woodworking) in each room. Easy parking with a trailer. We will definitely stay again!

Couldn't have had a better experience!
Your City: Langley, BC

Our stay could not have been better. Thank you, we will definitely be back soon!

Stay March 2018
Your City: Redmond, WA

We stay at the Inn each January, March and August for our annual steelhead/salmon fishing adventures. Our stay at the Inn is part of the fun and tradition. We enjoy chefing up our dinners at the grill station, and our chats with other fishing guests during our happy hour prior. Always clean, comfortable, friendly and reliable....

5 Star Review
Your City: Union

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!

by Jacqueline on Quinault River Inn
Charming place on good location
Your City: Nijmegen, Netherlands

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).

Your City: Arlington

by jim gonzalez on Quinault River Inn
love this place
Your City: Bellevue

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 !

Great location
Your City: Annapolis

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.

by Jane Ferry on Quinault River Inn
Lovely Place
Your City: Media, PA

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.

Great location for Quinalt River park
Your City: Chesterfield

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.

Noisy Neighbors
Your City: Bend

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.

by Carol Wood on Quinault River Inn
peaceful and beautiful place to stay
Your City: Grou, Netherlands

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!

Olympic Visit
Your City: Baltimore

"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!

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.
