Located off of Highway 101, the location of the Quinault River Inn provides families with easy access to the Quinault Rain Forest, massive trees, hiking, trailing and breathtaking waterfalls. It is only 30 minutes from the Washington coast at Kalaloch and Ruby beaches. Rooms at the Inn suitable for families have two double bed, plus an available rollaway bed. They have no telephone, but are equipped with free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, flat-screen HD TV, refrigerators, coffee and hairdryers. There is a community fire pit and each room has a porch on which you and your kids will greet the crisp morning air. It’s not a fancy place to stay, but clean and well kept up. The location is hard to beat.

I have stayed at the QRI several times. They consistently provide excellent accommodations. Rooms are large enough for all of our gear. they have a multi outlet plug on the nightstand for recharging cellphones. the rooms are very clean. very good value. Amanda Park has a general store, a pizza and grill place, a cafe, a liquor store and a gas station.....everything you need.
We had not been to the newly renovated Quinault River Inn for many years...before renovation it was very basic and did have another name that we can't remember. Now it is very pleasantly finished...up-to-date bathroom with nice fixtures and very quiet fan. The air system was quiet and very accurate temperature wise. The grounds are located right on the Quinault River and quite pleasant. Most people come to mainly spend the night and then out into the beautiful Lake Quinault area for fishing, hunting, hiking, photography in the Quinault rain forest, or exploring the Olympic Peninsula. It was just right for us! There are a few very close restaurants that did have good food. The innkeepers are super nice too!
