Lodging for 2 Days, 2 Nights in Olympic National Park

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! My husband and I are going to be headed to the North West for the first time ever for a wedding in Seattle on July 27. The next Sunday morning, we plan to wake up, get a rental car, head over the Brainbridge Ferry onto the peninsula and spend all day Sunday, Monday, and perhaps some of Tuesday morning at Olympic National Park (so staying over 2 nights). Afterwards, continuing south to Portland.

We are more into doing some small, moderate hikes and lots of sight seeing the beautiful area. But we dont need to do biking or kayaking. I know we want to hit up: Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, Marymere Fall, Sol Duc Hot Springs, Hoh rain forest, and Ruby beach or La Push Beach (whichever is best).

My question is, what is the best place to stay over night? I know the motels in Forks are more affordable than the Lodges, but is the further drive West not worth it? Or if we stayed both nights in Lake Crescent, for example, would it be a hassle to drive back the other direction after visiting the southern part of the park?

Any suggestions on lodgings would be greatly appreciated? Since we are trying to fit in a lot of stuff in only two days, I want to make sure we dont waste time driving out of the way just to go to sleep!!
Thanks everyone!
