During our recent two- night stay, we found the employees of the Red Lion to be friendly, efficient, and helpful. The rooms were large and clean. However, the hotel overall was lacking. Both of the guest ice machines were out of order- on a weekend- in July. We asked a house keeping employee about it, and she suggested going to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Red Lion in Kelso during the 2014 Seattle to Portland bike ride, during the first night. The hotel room was clean, and the beds were surprisingly comfortable. The hallway door that led out into the parking lot was held together with duct tape, and the restaurant didn't open for business until a half... More

I stay at this Red Lion each year for the Seattle to Portland bike ride. For the last 2 years the staffing level in the restaurant has been horrible. There are not enough servers for the amount of customers who come in for food. To me this is a problem of the management staff of either planning out the right... More

My wife and I stayed at the Red Lion Inn in Kelso, WA based on web review, location, and price. We made the reservation through Hotwire and the total was $110 including tax. The Red Lion Inn is immediately adjacent to I-5 but the highway noise was abated because we had made an online reservation for a quiet room which... More

When you book and expect breakfast make sure you call them to double check. We were surprised at check in our room did not include breakfast and it would be an additional $7.95 per person. There are other aces near by you can get food cheaper than that. They have rooms at the end of hallways with exit doors right... More

I've stayed here twice, and it's alright. I've never had a problem with my room, but the hallways and lobby could do with a refresh. The glass doors to the parking lot don't seem that secure, but it's not too bad. The breakfast buffet is actually one of the best things about this hotel; their eggs are excellent! Staff are... More
