Powered by AI

Lake Quinault Lodge is often celebrated for its enviable location near a picturesque lake and national park, which guests regularly applaud. However, the lodge seems to struggle with its offerings; numerous travelers consider the amenities outdated and the rooms poorly maintained, leading to a general feeling that the hotel does not provide good value for the cost. Cleanliness receives mixed reviews, with the rooms being tidy but sometimes lacking in essentials. Guests enjoy the rustic atmosphere but have experienced inconsistent service quality during their stay.

Beautiful lodging right on Lake Quinault and in the heart of Quinault rainforest. Wi fi is available for a fee, rooms are nice size but can get warm since there is no A/C. The outdoor deck is a great way to end the day. It’s a long hike downhill to the lake. Parking is very limited. As with most National Park Lodges, there is very limited technology, no TVs, no phones, limited WiFi. You are there to enjoy the outdoors afterall.

We read the reviews here before we booked so we knew what to expect during COVID. It is a stunning property with access to good trails. We stayed in a Lakeside room and it was nice with view of lake. We brought a cooler with food and drink and would recommend that to others during COVID. The food and beverage staff worked really hard to provide good service (take out only). But beyond that, there were very few staff to be seen. Sadly, no boat rentals during this time. We finally asked if we could build a fire in the fire pit (when we saw that wood was provided) and enjoyed that very much. Luckily we were located near housekeeping so we asked for extra coffee pods for our room coffee maker (instead of Starbucks for $5 a cup). We visited other dining options nearby and would recommend both Salmon House and Dino’s. Overall, it was a lovely getaway. But it seems these National Park properties should reduce their rates during COVID since services are limited.

We stayed one night as a "base" for the hikes and adventures you can do in and around Lake Quinault. I could imagine spending a week here relaxing, enjoying the lake, and other guests in the lodge. The layout of the main fireplace room is very conducive for talking with other guests or being alone with yourself relaxing on their leather couches. The deck, lawn games, lake access all seem to be geared toward family togetherness, being alone if you want or engaging with other guests. We stayed during phase 2 opening after the pandemic and they did a great job making everyone feel safe and keeping everything very clean. We enjoyed the drive around the lake and the various waterfalls and hikes accessible from this lodge. We will definitely be back.

I have been visiting Lake Quinault since the 1970's but will avoid the Lodge should I visit the area again. The Lodge is beautiful and sits in a beautiful setting. As a base from which to explore the Park's rainforest the Lodge should be perfect. However, wherever I turned during my 3 day stay I was met with Aramark's determination to extract maximum profit; to make a quick buck. Like the barber who charges $50 for a haircut; he will see me the once but for the fair price of $25, he'll see me every month.
The housekeeping was poor, both in the room and throughout the lodge with dirty glasses and cups left on mantles and under sofas for the duration of my stay.
Food quality was good but very, very expensive; Following a sampling of breakfast and dinner we ate elsewhere during our stay.
The lodge was far from fully occupied and given its incredible potential should be full continually. If Aramark would pay more attention to its clients, real and potential, Lake Quinault Lodge could become one of the premiere lodge destinations in the land.
Such a pity.

When you visit this area of Washington State, you will experience some of the most beautiful natural sites in the country. Amazing beaches, awesome mountain ranges, secluded hot springs, and outstanding forests. Lake Quinalt Lodge is a lovely old historic lodge nestled in the middle of these wonders. They have an excellent restaurant and the bar service also offers delicious salads and pizzas. The "low" end rooms are very basic but it beats camping (I've also done a lot of camping out there!) by a long shot. There is very limited capacity so the prices do tend to be high during summer months and keep in mind you are paying for the location not a high end resort experience.

Let me start by saying that the location of this lodge and the surrounding wilderness is beautiful. The hiking trails are great and if I came back here it would only be to camp.

I highly do not recommend staying in the lodge. Now I’m going to give the hotel staff the benefit of the doubt because there is a pandemic right now and it’s hard to find anything in this country that is operating as usual.

I do believe this hotel is very overpriced for what it’s offering. I booked through hotels.com and on my confirmation it detailed that a 46” TV was in the room. There definitely was not a TV in the room. That might be hotels.com’s fault or it might be the lodge’s, not sure. Considering I was visiting for the scenery it wasn’t a big deal for me but I can’t speak for others. Other reasons that I wouldn’t book a lodge room again would include lack of sound proofing, old beds and a pretty ridiculously bad WiFi offering. You get 30 minutes free and then you have the option to buy 1 gig for $5 or a more “upgraded WiFi” for $15. It’s still really slow so don’t expect normal hotel WiFi.

I can’t comment on the food in the restaurant because we didn’t order from it. All they’re offering right now is take out and it looked pretty pricey. We tried to go to the mercantile across the street for their little “cafe” but that was closed too. I’d say your best options for food are that little pizza place and the Internet cafe out on the highway.

The last thing that I’ll touch upon is there was no and I mean NO hot water in the entire hotel, this morning. I don’t know if that happens often at this property but it led to a pretty rude awakening. The hotel did compensate us and I really appreciated that.

For the price this place charges you can probably get something better.

These rooms outside of the lodge are really are more like a slightly upgraded motel, the owners have not even tried to upgrade the rooms to make them nicer. The front desk gentleman ignored us while he spent 15 mins telling the person in front of us the history of the park, while the line got longer behind us with guests wanting to check in. Five staff stood at the front desk chatting while only one (same guy) checked guests in. Wifi is $18 after the first 30 mins of use. The bed bed duvet is the thinnest, and there's no extra/spare bedding in the room.
In the restaurant, all the wine list by the glass are from Washington except 1 blend from California, not ideal. Dinner at the lodge restaurant was $124 total for a two before tip, for just one glass of wine, one glass of cider and one main course each - that's pricey. Our waitress at dinner was lovely, the view from the beach in front of the lodge is gorgeous but this is 'lodge' feels like a model 6 with just a shower, no bath to soak in after a long hike. The forest here is stunning, so if we do return, we'll rent an airbnb because I do not recommend staying here :)

We had two excellent days at the Lodge. Love how well they have preserved the main lodge. Really enjoyed sitting on the lawn with a glass of wine in such a peaceful setting. Even though the food had to be take out only, we were able to easily sit on the deck to enjoy it and the food was excellent! We ate breakfasts and dinners and all were excellent. One suggestion would be to open for coffee only around 7am for those early risers and perhaps 4pm for happy hour for wine. We had a room with 2 Queens Lakeside, and highly recommend that for a beautiful breeze off the lake. Overall a great job given CoVid, one suggestion might be to leave sanitizer spray outside on patio tables so guests could wipe off the tables after their use. Highly recommend staying here, such a jewel.

We stayed one week ago in room 416 which is located in the Lakeside Rooms building. This building is separate from the main lodge, nestled in the trees right on the lake shore. Our view was spectacular and we enjoyed it from the private balcony. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The food from the restaurant was delicious (we had a pizza and clam chowder) and the location can’t be beat!! There are two things keeping this from being a 5 star review: one is that the walls of our room were thin and we could hear the people in the neighboring room the entire time- them talking, their tv all of it- the second thing is that there isn’t a mini fridge or microwave in the type of room we were in. We could do without the microwave but not having a mini fridge was pretty inconvenient considering how isolated the hotel is. I misunderstood our room amenities and thought we had a fridge, so we arrived with groceries that required refrigeration. We had to improvise with filling the grocery bags full of ice and keeping our perishables in the bathtub. At the end of the day this isn’t a deal breaker but just an inconvenience that future guests should be aware of. We spent 2 nights here and honestly I wish we’d spent longer- the pros far outweighed the cons for us in the long run. There are plenty of trails that start very near the hotel, the Mercantile across the street had all of the snacks and things we needed and the 30 min a day (free, you could pay for more time) suited us just fine as we were there to escape from the world. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and come better prepared (upgrade to a room with a fridge and bring earplugs just in case).

We took advantage of the winter special and stayed 2 nights in a fireplace king room with balcony seating and lake view (room had refrigerator, no microwave). After hiking several hours, we enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. The room had a Keurig with tea, coffee, and hot chocolate; a hair dryer; decent internet; and TV (which we didn't use). I think the standard lodge rooms do not have as many amenities. The walls are VERY thin, so your every move and every sound will be heard by the people in the adjacent room(s). Easy access from the Lodge to several hiking trails. We did not take the van tour, but did drive the loop around the lake (about half the drive is on narrow gravel roads). We saw 2 herds of elk on this route. We did not eat in the dining room. The Mercantile across the road was not open during the time we were there (February). There is a small store about 4 miles north on Hwy 101, adjacent to where the loop around the lake exits onto Hwy 101. Overall, a nice stay and not very crowded in winter.

Just don’t stay there. It’s vastly overrated, more like a Motel 6. Very disappointing.

We did not pay extra for WiFi and did receive some texts at the lodge on Verizon phones. Some were delayed but they did come through every so often. You do also get 30 consecutive minutes of free WiFi per day.
