Top notch staff make this hotel a pleasant and accommodating vacation site. The outdoor amenities - beach, tables & chairs, live music and the burger shack are free amenities that allow for a pleasant outdoor afternoon and evening. The building is well kept and comfortable, but a little dated.

Almost everything was pleasant. The location was great, there was a beach for our 3 and 5 year old on the River and the room size was very good for the price. The main bed was alright, but the sofa-bed was atrocious! Thank goodness our kids are too light in weight to notice. The distance to Silverwood and Spokane Riverfront... More

We had a good stay at Red Lion. We ate at the restaurant on the patio. We did have to seat ourselves and wait about 10 minutes for acknowledgement and menus. The food was good and prices were affordable. We rented a jet ski and got in on the special two hour pricing for $80, but did have to add... More

Had a fine stay here but basically only slept there the rest of the time we were gone. The AC unit could have been colder however it was pretty warm out. Someone charged lunch to our room which was taken off at check out without hassle. That was quite annoying but the front desk agent quickly took care of it.... More

We stayed 2 nights in a room for $125/night...discounted. When I asked if we could get a 'view' room (simply meaning not facing the parking lot), I was told those were more expensive rooms. Wow. We got a room overlooking the parking lot with a window that opened about 6 inches (a safety thing, I'm sure). The room was stuffy... More

Absolute disappointment --- typically Red Lion hotels are very solid hotels that use excellent service to make up for some of the dated properties. Not so at Templins. The hotel is dated but serviceable and clean. First impression: not great but it will be fine. Dinner was a disaster. The service was kind and well intentioned but truly unprofessional. Seat... More

My complaints are sort of minor compared to some terrible hotels, so keep that in mind. You can definitely tell this hotel has been here a while, because it hasn't been updated or deep-cleaned in years. Our room smelled like a dog urinated on the carpet and it was never properly cleaned - disgusting. Besides the smell, my other biggest... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write how your visit with us went. Your feedback is very important to us. I am sorry you experienced so much disturbance from noises in the halls, poor service at check-in, not feeling secure and not feeling comfortable in your room due to the air conditioning.

The staff were very friendly and attentive, great customer service. Rooms were a B+, not posh, i.e. gaps in the doors leading to the outside, older amenities, but clean and comfortable. Although rained the 3 days I was there, the hotel has a marina at the base of the hill and in the summer could be considered a great vacation... More

For $80, plus tax, so $102, it was ok. Staff was super nice, the room seemed clean, beds and pillows were decent. Shower was clean and hot with nice soap/shampoo. Being a little critical, the exterior maintenance was lacking, such as soffit hanging loose, moss on the roofs and door jambs, nails popping from the siding. Nothing that impacted my... More
