Made a reservation for the Red Lion Inn in Eureka, Ca. for June 21-24, 2012. The reservation was for 1 room, 2 queen beds. Immediately after making the reservatioon on-line, I called the hotel to have them add a roll-a-way bed to the reservation as this was not an option on-line. They confirmed the reservation for the dates listed, 2... More

Management response:

Good day Mr. Tupen, I wanted to extend my apologies again for the confusion in your reservation. Our reservations agent was able to accomodate and change your room to an accessible room from non accessible room. Unfortuneately we were sold out that evening and did not have an accessible room with two beds when your reservation was made. The reservations... More

First of all don't book the breakfast inclusive rate! It is about $30 more than the AAA or normal rate and you will find out that it's only $7.95 for breakfast! Then you will have to fight them to change it! Then they will saybtheybill do it and not! No towels in my room nice surprise in the morning. Really... More

Thank you for taking the time to contact us, I must apologize that we did not get rate change you requested the first time. The breakfast rate is based off of our regular rates, so if you qualify for a discounted rate such as the AAA. That would definity be the better deal. I am happy to hear our team... More

We stayed here because it was a pet-friendly hotel and we were traveling with our puppy. My first impression when i walked into the lobby was that the smell was of either old or dirty. Maybe both. The room looked clean except for the carpet, and someone's sandwich left in the refrigerator. The door to the balcony in both our... More

This was our first stay at the Red Lion in Eureka. We decided to stay here rather than the Holiday Express in Fortuna and the Rodeway Inn, which is across the street. Our decision was based on its central Eureka location as compared to Fortuna and it did not charge extra for a third person as did the holiday express... More

First off the room was so hot when we arrived we turned on the air conditioner THEN.... Nothing! No cold air! Finally at 130 am we called to see if... More

Imagine how pleasantly we were surprised by our rooms in two Red Lion Hotels in Coos Bay, Oregon and Eureka, California. After staying in a five star hotel in Seattle we thought we had seen the best. We were wrong. The rooms at both hotels were unbelievably large. Have never seen rooms with sinks in two separate areas so that... More

We've been to Eureka many times, and have never had a truly bad room until this trip. This was a first stay at eh Red Lion and obviously we weren't impressed. In all fairness I have to admit that this was graduation weekend for two colleges, it may be reason enough to experience poor service but it's no excuse for... More

First, the pros. I stayed here on business for the State of California and had left my state ID badge at home. No big deal, the front desk confirmed with my email address. That was a + right there. Then the breakfast buffet featured responsive service in a clean environment with a selection of foods that was really much more... More

Access to the facility was limited. Could hear conversations from the hallway. Bathroom shower/tub showed less than clean. Internet service not sufficient. Deacor ok.
