If you are driving north or south along the northern California coast, the Red Lion on the north end of town is an easy night. Right on 101, the convenience makes this an easy stopover. Staff were great, room was quiet (even for being on 101) and the rate was reasonable. I would stay again next time through...

I did not expect much staying at a Red Lion Hotel but was pleasantly surprised. Globus arranged our stay here and the room was adequate and the beds comfortable. The group dinner was pretty good and the staff was very pleasant and efficient. The breakfast was excellent. It is an eight block walk to the Carson Mansion and the Old... More

Clean..comfy..pet friendly. Patio access is priority one as I occasionally smoke and have a pet. German Shepherd. Easy private patio with quick access to my car along with great staff and clean comfy amenities make this a no brainer. $115 bucks after tax. Great bar. Do yourself a favor. This is the choice

I really like this place and had only one complaint...the hot tub has no jets so it's like sitting in a bath tub! But the rooms are nice and beds are SO comfortable. The restaurant exceeded our expectations and we were thankful to have a drink watching sports and not have to drive. So convenient!

We stayed at the Red Lion every time we went up to the redwoods area. Each time, the staff was friendly enough to accommodate our needs: one time with young children; the other time with a senior family member. They gave us extra large room when our kids were young and two adjescent rooms with a door in-between when we... More

The room was adequate and it had some amenities, but missed it on several things. It's nice to have dog friendly hotels and I am not sure if the other rooms followed suit but we had flimsy plastic glasses and paper coffee cups. There was a frig, coffee maker and microwave, too. Breakfast wasn't complimentary and it was just the... More

Needed a hotel that was pet friendly, to my surprise Red lion is a pet friendly hotel. Their rate per night (middle of the week) was best in town, compared to other competitive hotels. Hotel staff was very friendly, check-in was quick and easy. Room was clean and i'm pretty picky, however this was a pet friendly room, so it... More
