I traveled in from another state for our Corporate Christmas party. My room was nice large and clean. Could use some renovations. Our party was a success. The buffet food was hot fresh and the best I've had. Top notch service from everyone.

I didn't get a bad price since I stayed during the low season but honestly I wouldn't see a justification on the normal price. It is the one hotel in town where the hot tub and pool are actually in service and the "breakfast buffet" is actually just continental bfast with eggs, potato's and gravy (good coffee). The bar is...

I have been through a number of motels in 2 cities for several years, sometimes staying only one night, sometimes 2 nights for a month or so. Until finding the Red Lion, where I stay 2 nights a week almost every week for a couple of years now. A gorgeous atrium, clean, polished lobby, a real dining room even for... More

My family and I stayed here while visiting family in Farmington. We'll not make that mistake again. Water at best was slightly above body temperature, at worst could not get above slightly cool--not a comfortable shower. My daughter went to the spa trying to warm up and came back complaining that it smelled of both chlorine and urine. Ugh. Laundry--expensive,... More

We arrived in Farmington due to a family members illness and planned to stay a week. Ended up staying just under a month. During this very difficult time, the Red Lion came through for us.

The bathroom was disgusting. There was fecal matter smeared on the underside of the toilet. The tub looked like it had not been cleaned in several months. The shower head had no water pressure because the water was spraying in every direction out the back of the head. The carpets had stains through out the room. Wall paper was peeling... More

We stayed one night while passing thru. The Red Lion staff was great, but the room was incredibly worn and tired and dark. I hope that the Owners can commit to a renovation to bring the facility up to the level of the goodness of the staff. While worn dated and tired, the room was clean, and wifi was decent.... More
