We were traveling back to Oregon from the Bay Area and decided to spend the night in Redding. Having had bad experiences previously with motels there, I decided to go to the Red Lion Hotel. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Lots of parking. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Basic breakfast buffet for a small charge. They... More

Everything you had to say was very gracious and kind. But your last three words made me smile, "Clean, quiet and comfortable." Along with the service, that is what we strive to do. Thanks so much for your review and please do return - soon. More

The Red Lion is located at the junction of Interstate 5 and highway 44. The location provides easy access on and off the highways. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. There is a $10 charge for pets. Many services are located around the property such as restaurants, gas stations and car washes. The fitness center could use... More

What a surprise walking into someone else's room at 1am, luckily person in room didn't have a gun. Went to lobby to get a new room and entered after knocking, just to be safe. Very spacious room but needed a good cleaning. Music from bar could be heard so we had to turn on the room fan to drown out... More

Wow, what is there to say but, "We blew it!" This is not policy or standard operating procedure. There are checks and cross checks to keep this from happening. They were ignored in your situation. I humbly apologize for this happening and very thankful that you brought it to my attention. There has already been a meeting and discussions with... More

We're a retired couple who stayed at this hotel for one night at the end of February, while on a long car trip. The best thing about this Red Lion was the staff. They were all efficient and genuinely friendly. They volunteered, for security reasons, to store our 2 bikes overnight in their office, rather than have them left on... More

Thank you for your review. As for the cost of our rooms we compete for our share of the market within Redding. All markets are different and costs will vary depending on many factors that any given market will have. Competition, location and overall occupancy of the area will be some of the factors. We are very keenly aware of... More

I stay at this hotel 2 to 3 times a year for fly fishing on the Lower Sacramento River. The hotel is always clean and the staff is very responsive. We used the hotel shuttle to and from the general aviation airport and they were on time both ways. We had breakfast at the hotel only once but it was... More

Overall a good experience, the queen size bed was very comfy. Breakfast options were not fabulous, but passable. The location was convenient and central. The staff who work here are amazing. They are very good at their jobs. We would consider returning in the future.

Thanks for staying with us on your first visit to Redding. It seemed that you enjoyed everything except our Roaring Start breakfast. Many like the buffet style hot breakfast choices. Your basic scrambled eggs, country potatoes, bacon and sausage. Served with a host of bread and bagels - as well as juices. Next time you are here with us, please... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Red Lion in Redding for two nights while traveling for work. I used one of the conference rooms for a training I was facilitating, and I was impressed by the staff's attention to detail, incredible customer service and assistance with everything from making copies, setting up an LCD projector and presenting a...

I've stayed here a lot over the past 10 or so years. The hotel is older but that's what I like about it. It was built during a time when large rooms with patio/balcony doors and individual heating/air conditioning systems (not wall units) were standard. Construction is pretty soundproof which I covet because I'm a light sleeper. Everything is updated... More

However, we're always modernizing and looking for new ways to look fresh and stay up to date. You were gracious in your words and sentiment, something we appreciate, glean and cherish. We... More

We stayed at Red Lion Hotel in Redding on Valentine's Day in 2015. The Expedia rate included breakfast. My wife complained that the shower left her hair in a mess. (We usually stay at the Oxford Suites, but they were sold out on Valentine's day.)

Thank you for your review. Yours is the first bad hair from the shower response we've received - but we are sorry for any inconvenience you experienced. We really do try to offer the best product on Hilltop. Anything less than our best is not acceptable. Please come back and give us another try at a perfect nights rest. More

I stay at the Red Lion Redding 2 or 3 times a year, on my way to Oregon. The thing that sets them apart is the quality of their mattresses. I get a comfortable night's sleep every visit. On top of that, the decor is pleasant and the staff is friendly and helpful. I do miss the Cascade room. Food... More
