For a one night stop over the hotel was fine. We really liked the very spacious (Huge) rooms which were quiet and the bed was comfortable so we got a good nights sleep. The food in the restaurant was pretty bland and unappetising so eat elsewhere if you stay there. For some reason we were charged twice for our stay... More

The hotel is clean, rooms are spacious, staff friendly. We had a few problems while there-- our first room had not been cleaned by housekeeping so we had to move- lost our ocean view with balcony. Then next room had outlets not working near desk and the tub wouldn't drain. The hotel was booked so we had to wait over... More

Had a 2 room suite for 3 days, which needed more furniture (coffee table, easy chair, etc.). Housekeeping very slow - room cleaned at 5 PM first day of stay. Adjoining rooms noisy. On positive side, staff is helpful and pleasant. Worked with us to check in early. Did not charge for 2 breakfasts as a gesture for our inconvenience.... More

I've stayed in a few different hotels in Eureka now and the Red Lion had the friendliest staff by far. They had to give us a room with only one bed instead of two (no idea why) but they were at least very nice about it. It was also very conveniently located - right next to Target and just a... More

Reserved a king bed room and was told on check in that I was getting the last king bed room since it was late and the hotel was full (not sure why that should matter if I reserved a room with a king bed) but the bed only had a queen bed, not a king as promised. Otherwise it was... More

I think this hotel is still figuring things out a bit. It is one of the nicer hotels (motels) in Eureka, but that isn't saying too much. The staff could make the difference needed for this hotel to continue to charge what it does for a room.

Unsavory people hanging out in front and first room they gave us hadn't been cleaned. Beds unmade etc. When I complained to front desk they didn't seem Suprised. Just asked if I wanted... More

This was my first stay at a Red Lion and it was nice. It was "back to school" week at HSU and there were several tour groups in large buses staying at the hotel. It was surprisingly quiet. My only complaint was the wretched breakfast buffet options, but there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance that offer breakfast.

I come over for the HumDog Agility trial and was staying at a different Hotel each year trying to find one I like. This Hotel has been clean, quiet and allows dogs. Staff is friendly and the room was clean and comfortable.

I have over 8000 points in the Red Lion Rewards Program. They are changing their rewards program so that all 8000 points will be erased in November. I chose the Red Lion because of their rewards program knowing that I was only one stay away from a free night. Well, not so much. Not only is the rewards program changing,... More
