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 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

A variety of hotels are nearby the Red Lion Inn. We chose to walk down to Red Lion for dinner. Had a beer in bar and ate early in restaurant. Good service from Veronica. Also, gave us 10 percent off even though we weren't staying there. Enjoyable time
