I was delighted when I got my room! It is spacious, has a desk, a love seat, king sized bed room to spread out. The room was quiet even though it was July 4th. With the much welcomed, well working air-conditioner working, I hardly heard the booms, pops and crackles. Well sound proofed. The ice makers on all 3 floors... More

My wife and I just stayed here for one night on our way to Mount St. Helens. My sister picked the hotel out on PriceLine and booked a room for us as well. I was a little uncertain about the place as we approached the hotel around midnight. The people at the front desk were wide awake, funny and helpful.... More

The hotel is beautifully appointed and comfortable. The rooms are excellent, all facilities clean and well maintained. It rivals any Hilton property. We were very tired and were delighted to find the place so comfortable and clean

Hotel is in a nice park like setting which was surprisingly nice and well laid out. Nice restaurant and bar, friendly accommodating staff. Rooms are a decent size and nice and clean Located close to The Ridge race track.

This hotel is staffed by extremely friendly, helpful people. The rooms are comfortable and provide well for relaxing and rest. The only issue I encountered was the sound in the hall. Between guests and the ice machine, it sounded as if I had no door at all. I suspect a different room might have had less hall traffic, but this... More

This is a slightly shabby hotel apparently catering to the business community and to groups coming for meetings. It is in need of a make-over. The breakfast was not good - there were blocks of heated sausages straight out of the packet (surely it is not too much effort to separate them before leaving them in a buffet?). On a... More

Initial room had horrendous smell. It was a non- smoking room but someone apparently had smoked in it and that combined with whatever was used to clean were unbearable. The receptionist immediately moved us to a different room that was fine. She also gave us complimentary breakfast buffet coupons. Hotel was clean, comfortable, and met our needs. Nothing special but... More

We recently stayed at this hotel while attending a Fallen Firefighter Memorial at the Capitol building. The hotel was just across the lake from the Capitol and was in an ideal location for getting around the downtown area. Great hotel for a good price with large, clean rooms, great staff, outdoor pool and wonderful trees all around. We would definitely... More

Check in was slooooow. No free wifi in the rooms. The free wifi in the foyer did not work - even for the staff. They offered to give me the number to call for for tech support - basically the last thing I want to do on holidays. Our experience in the restaurant for dinner was well below par. Room... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry about your experience here. Wireless internet is always free at Red Lion Hotels, but it sounds like there may have been an issue that particular day. And there's simply to excuse for poor service in our restaurant. We'd like to talk with you more about your experience here and invite you back... More
