We used the Red Lion for an annual conference we hold every year. While the hotel needs some major updating and renovations the staff could have not been more accommodating and attentive to our needs. It was obvious that all of the staff was aware of our group and went out of their way to provide the best service possible.... More

OK so I stayed at this hotel 3 weeks in a row on business, and each time got progressively worse. Eon't be back, ever. My last visit ended yesterday, 5-13-15. It was for two days. First let me start by saying the hotel is generally just dirty. Rooms are in need badly of having a complete overhaul. One of the... More

We were warmly greeted and promptly checked in at the front desk, but we noticed that the front counter was worn and the luggage carts were well used, and things just seemed to be generally in good shape, but older and slightly worn out. The room was clean and comfortable and fairly well maintained, and with a standard layout but... More

It is an older hotel but has met our needs and always a welcome sign at the end of a hard days work.

All the staff at the front desk, in the bar and in restaurant were GREAT. The problem I had was with the bed sheets. There spots on them and you could tell they were old because they no longer looked white. They were a dull white and thin due to washing a lot and using bleach or not using bleach.... More

The hotel was 4.5 star for the price. At that rating, it only lost points for no washcloths and a lousy small TV. It dropped precipitously to 2.5 stars due to a non functioning AC/Heating unit. Although the maintenance guy, August, came by twice with friendly effort, he could not repair the unit. If you are checking in soon, do... More

WBeavers, We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. A/C/Heat difficulties, on your first night, should have resulted in a simple room change. (It is possible the hotel was full) It seems your second night was much more accommodating and comfortable for you. We want each and every guest to enjoy their ENTIRE stay at The Red Lion... More

Great location. The Riverwalk is conveniently located near the hotel. The lounge was a nice scene and a neat perk. The breakfast was great as well. Our room was clean. It would be nice if the room was equipped with a flat screen TV. I can't be too critical of that. The shower head in our room did not function... More

The big, shiny, welcoming lobby, the 3-story atrium with 2- story trees and many large- leafed tropical plants are a pleasure to this traveler. I find staff to be among the absolute best. The service in the dining room is above excellent, and the new chef knows what he is doing, really into fresh ingredients, too. Yeah , some parts... More

This hotel is aweful. First impression was a rude counter guy who shunted me over to the other guy so he could help his buddies. Then i see the plastic trask cans everywhere to collect the rain from the leaky roof. The rooms look straight out of the 70s and the tv is ancient. central area is an enclosed pool... More
