Simple place to sleep. – This is a convenient accommodation if you are planning to climb Mt. St. Helen's. Otherwise it is a very basic old school roadside motel, nothing fancy and certainly no "resort" qualities. Price was reasonable and the only game in town of Cougar other than a B&B. The Lone Fir also issues climbers permits so it is very convenient for climbers. Assure you get the permit the night before if you plan on leaving very early in the morning. The room was clean but again very basic. Staff were nice and very helpful however they are not in the know about the recreational opportunities in the area. We found the restaurant attached very good for pizza, burgers, etc. They made a mean fried chicken basket and wrapped sandwiches in foil for our climb the next day. Server was kind and attentive. As this is the registration for climbing Mount Saint Helens it is a good place to talk to people coming down from a climb gleaning much needed information for the ascent.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS – A very loud and out-of-tune cover band was playing when i pulled up. the woman at the counter said they would be playing until 11 pm. I have a small baby and the walls were very thin in the rooms. The rooms were dank and looked like the last update was made in 1968.
NOT A WELCOMING, WARM PLACE TO STAY. Camping would be a better option.
A wilderness retreat in the shadow of a volcano. – The Scene
This family-style motel makes a good base camp for myriad adventures, including hiking, fly fishing, biking or cross country skiing. Mount St. Helens is nearby, and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest is even closer. This remote little resort caters mainly to the RV crowd, but the 16 units fill with families in the summer and hunters in the fall.
The complex offers different lodging options; there are 32 RV sites, tent sites and the motel. The motel rooms are basic, with a number of different configurations from which to choose, from simple accommodations with a queen bed to a four-bedroom, two-bathroom kitchen unit.
