Spent 1 night at the Red Lion Bellevue. The wet, musty smell hits you as soon as you open the hallway door. It is almost overpowering. The room itself was clean and fine - you acclimate to the smell relatively quickly. Everything worked - internet - shower - tv - - heater worked EXTREMELY well (had to keep it turned... More

This hotel on the edge of the downtown district offers reasonable rates (for Bellevue) and a service oriented atmosphere that makes it a great stay. Gladys and Kayla, two of the afternoon/evening front desk staff make everyone feel like a VIP. Whether you need a shuttle ride to a pharmacy or grocer or a dinner recommendation, they go the extra...

This property needs overall renovation. Rooms are good sized, clean and decent. Many of the rooms have balcony. My room felt drafty. Bed was firm and comfortable. My rate included breakfast, but the restaurant still charged me. I had to go to the front desk to get the charge removed. WiFi was OK.

Hotels in downtown Bellevue are pricey. Chain hotels you may normally use, could be priced out of your budget. The Red Lion is a good compromise. The property was clean but dated. Staff were friendly and parking was easy. The bed was OK but not as good as I normally expect. We had a large HDTV with good reception. The... More

I am usually staying in this hotel. Although the interior of the hallways needs some renovation, the rooms are good, spacious and nice. The staff is friendly. It's just a great place to stay for a good price. I can definitely recommmend it.

I stay two nights for business conference nearby. Although the exterior is dated, the interiors were fine and my room was great with comfortable beds.

Red Lion was conveniently located close to my office. What surprised me was how inviting the cottage-like rooms were. I will continue to book with Red Lion if my preferred 4-star hotels are not available at a discount. Thank you for a clean, comfortable, inviting stay!
