You need to appreciate the red lion inn for its history and charm. Take some time to look at the old photos, the artifacts in the tavern, the teapot collection in the dining room and the splendid collection of antiques throughout the hotel.

The Inn is in Desperate need of a renovation! We have been staying at the Red Lion Inn for the past few years as our go to Inn for our Tanglewood weekends.

This is an old, old establishment. Beautiful and interesting in a "shabby chic" manner. Excellent large rooms with nice bathroom. Quality toiletry. Air conditioning was quirky at best. The turn down service was poor and they seriously need to upgrade this for the price they charge, all they do is pull off the cover and place the nominal chocolate on... More

Rocking chairs on the porch, right in the tiny tiny downtown (5 stores), crooked walls and antiques everywhere. Pretty much perfect if you are looking for an inn with character. Not so much if you are looking for new or modern. We really like the dinner in the formal dining room where the service was attentive, but not stuffy. We... More

The Red Lion, is rustic to say the least, one has to embrace the fact that the much of the building dates from 1897 or so. It has character, charm and quirkiness. Not a single floor, wall or door is straight after all these years! The service is top notch, has a year around pool and hot tub, location is... More

Talk about a change! The Red Lion Inn will take you back to that old time feeling. We've been around and this has to be the best yet.

The inn is one I have enjoyed for many, many years. This stay was with a good friend who also enjoys country inns and had never stayed here.

As I've said before, if a Hotel or restaurant maintains its quality over many years it deserves a new review. This is surely the case with the iconic Red Lion Inn.
