Came here after spending several nights at multiple Best Westerns and though the desk staff was nice we would never recommend this property for anyone arriving late. Don't even try to order room service after 8:oo pm. No answer, no call back and just a sorry and should we chase them down from the desk. No mention of when they... More

Location on the river was beautiful. However, the exterior of the property towards the water was not well maintained, and there was limited accessibility to enjoy the water. there seemed to be a lot of potential for improvement here. In addition, while very friendly and nice, the staff didn't seem to have much knowledge of the area, things to do... More

A bit old but very clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Restaurant on-site with service, choice and prices as expected for a chain. There is a swimming pool. We didn't use it and there is a strong chlorine smell in the nearby hall but saw lots of kids in it so must be OK. Wi-fi connection... More

The hotel we wanted in Coeur D'Alene was full so my husband booked us here since he'd stayed at Red Lion's years ago. Well, the hotel needs to be updated from its look of maybe the 70's. We did gave a nice view of the river and the marina. The little beach where we sat was nice to watch the... More

Check-in was prompt. The room was fairly clean. There were some long black hairs on the sheets as we pulled back the bedspread. Assumed they were from housekeeping. The hot tub was way too hot to enjoy a relaxing soak. Maintenance should check that out. Overall our stay was comfortable and quiet.

This motel is on the river in Post Falls, ID, and believe me the Internet website makes it look awesome. But, it should have a complete renovation. Surprised the Red Lion has their name on it. Our room had dry rot in the door jam, carpets filthy. The whole place has paint peeling off. The rooms on the river on... More

We were VERY disappointed with this motel. For the price the rooms should have been updated a long time ago. We got a river view room that had a balcony the size of a postage stamp. One person could stand on it. You couldn't even get a chair on it to enjoy the obstructed view. The furniture was from the... More

We spent 1 night at this property, and were pleased with the setting and the value. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The king room is spacious with a (small) refrigerator. We had a river view room, which had a patio and looked out onto the green area above the river, a very short walk away. There is beach access,... More

We arrived at the hotel before 3 pm and were told our room wouldn't be ready until 3 pm, we figured this was the case, but the woman working that day was not friendly. I asked if there was anything was open for lunch and she told us nothing was open and the best place was in town. We were... More

The room was very nice and well-appointed. The view of the marina was spectacular and serene. The staff were very savvy and supportive. The breakfast was delicious. The other fantastic points were the activities. They had complementary bikes for us to ride and paved bike paths! They had a company on-site that rented jet skis and paddle boards etc. We... More
