The hotel is obviously being renovated and updated but overall, it was well maintained. The front desk staff were polite. The breakfast buffet was good and the waitstaff were very pleasant. My disappointment was with the housekeeping staff. Towels, cups and essentials were not replaced, and it was obvious that all that housekeeping had done was make the bed. The... More

I had to stay here at the Red Lion for two weeks for a class we were putting on and was generally very impressed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. The smell of cigarettes was still around, but it was easy to ignore. Overall I was very happy with my stay and would happily... More

Very nice & courteous, superb service in the restaurant, much better atmosphere than the Holiday Inn. I will return for another stay at any of your establishments when traveling! Good things do come in small packages, great hospitality!

The front desk Maya was very helpful and a very nice person. She also helped with my fax, internet and got me a room close to the elevator and stairs.

Had to make a trip for business to Farmington and usually stay at a different place, but this was a last minute change and they didn’t have room. I booked here for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting too much for the price, but saw that it had an indoor pool and hot tub which I... More

I travel out of town for work every week and this is by FAR the WORST hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are run down and shabby. When I showered the ceiling was covered with mold and the bathtub had paint flecking off of it. The ventilation system gave me a sore throat upon waking every day. I... More

This hotel is old, rundown, and quite dirty. My wife and I had an unexpected overnight in Farmington, NM. Road construction crews, mining crews, and business conferences had filled all the other hotels, so we had no other choice. This was the worst Red Lion I have ever stayed at. The bathroom wasn't very clean--grime, old hair, stains/splotches on the... More
