I stayed here for business. The room was very small and the breakfast was gross. The "fresh fruit" was mushy and watery, the rest of the offerings were basic low end breakfast options. There was a tip jar for the breakfast attendant, how tacky!

I've stayed at this Red Lion on several occasions, including its former incarnation as a Hampton Inn. The staff are always helpful and friendly, and it offers very nice rooms and amenities. On my most recent stay (12/10/2014) my room was a ground floor, two-queen bed arrangement, since there were apparently no king-bed rooms available. I found the room generally... More

Everyone was so darn friendly and helpful, from the shuttle drivers to the lobby staff to the maids to the breakfast lady (who makes you amazing waffles and is as nice and helpful as they come). The room was lovely, the bed was comfy, really you couldn't ask for more, especially considering the price. The shuttle even took me to... More

I asked for a non smoking room, yet the room reeked of cigarette smoke. When I went to the counter I was told it was a non smoking room. Also, the area the hotel is located in is questionable. There is an adult video store across the street and two "gentlemans" club within a block of the hotel.Will not stay... More

Great location if you want to save $ on a car rental. Free shuttle service from the airport, just call them and they will pick you up. There is a budget rent a car across the street and we rented a vehicle there for 2 weeks which saved us close to $200 from the airport price. The hotel also has... More

I enjoyed this hotel. The were spacious, beds comfortable, decor modern. The breakfast included protein which is a huge plus for me. We were visiting because of the Ironman event.

I hve stayed at this property many times, starting back when it was a Hampton Inn. I was surprised to see half of the propety replaced by a taller new building, which seemed to crowd and shade the space of the Red Lion. This stay was two nights and I still like the location for events at the Tempe Town... More

We stayed here over Parents' Weekend at ASU. The price was reasonable but the property itself is in need of a "face lift". It just looks old and tired. The first room we checked into smelled like smoke. The staff was VERY helpful and accommodating and switched us to another room immediately. Our friends that we traveled with had ants... More

When we were forced into an overnight stay in Phoenix when US Airways rescheduled our connecting flight to Mexico, we were looking for an inexpensive hotel with a free airport shuttle and free breakfast. The Red Lion fit the bill beautifully, and we were able to get a 2 bedroom unit for less than the cost of 2 individual rooms.... More
