We got a great rate on a park n fly with 14 days of parking. We were on the top (6th) floor and our room was actually pretty nice. On our return, because of delayed flights, we opted to stay again. This time, we were on floor 3 and it was pretty tired and run down...a disappointment to be sure.... More

They must have a sweetheart deal with Alaska Airlines. Our flight was delayed and the airline rewarded us by putting us up in a noisy hotel. Many more hotels much closer to the airport and in much better repair than this dump. I wonder how many repeat customers they get. We certainly won't be going back

Shuttle only runs every 30 minutes to the airport. No restaurant open late at night. Room was adequate. Bed wasn't the best. Bathroom was fine. It took a long time to check in, not sure why. No restaurants open nearby after 11 PM. We walked to the gas station nearby to get some snacks. Shuttle driver was very nice and... More

if you're forced to stay in Renton or need a short Seattle stay over, you could do worse. I stayed here when bumped off a flight this week, and it was fine. The hotel is obviously commonly used for this and accommodates late check outs and has a free shuttle. The Yankee Clipper restaurant attached is decent as well.

I went for a medical examiner for a couple days... Don't let them put you next to the elevator... Makes a noise all night... The old building also is weirdly heated. We were dying. You hear everything doors are not fitted so light comes through. On the good side.. most of the staff try to be helpful.

My wife and I booked a park and fly package for a recent trip that had us flying out of Seatac Airport. Our plan was to drop our car at the Red Lion, fly out and then spend the night at the hotel on our return. Everything went just as planned. The shuttle to and from the airport was perfect.... More

I checked out several motels to stay at the night before our flight to Florida to that would allow us to leave our car for 2 weeks as we were going on a cruise. The room was acceptable, but I signed up for a wake up call, and it never came. I talked to someone else the next morn and... More

Our flight was overbooked and we volunteered to wait for the next flight. The Red Lion is what Delta offered us. I'm guessing the hotel is 30-40 years old and showing its age. I think it was originally a Holiday Inn. The rooms are smallish for a Red Lion. The room was clean, the flatscreen TV (Dish) worked fine, the... More

We liked the hotel. Especially the park & fly package! I spent a lot of time looking for free parking at a NICE hotel. It was clean & quiet. We Definitely would stay here again & recommend to others. Of course, this review is based on hoping our car will be there when we get back.
