We occasionally stay at the Red Lion when we have an early morning flight or a flight arriving late in the evening. It is much more convenient for us than driving the three hours from our Washington location and risking a time-consuming traffic jam in Seattle traffic. Our recent visit was consistent with other visits. The property is older, but... More

Room were old, but clean, and water pressure was good in the shower. That's all I can say that is good. Wifi was slow, when it worked which wasn't often. The hotel smelled. The track for the drapes wouldn't let us close them all the way, walls were paper thin,(we got to listen to the family next door have an... More

Overall, nothing bad. The bed was clean and everything is working. What is a little disturbing is that the aircon turn on and off again once the temperature reached the temperature that you set. The air condition is probably old and pretty disturbing when it turn on and off again. The hotel lack of vibrant feel and for the same... More

The rooms are getting tired. The room size was adequate but the bathrooms were very small and cramped. And, the plumbing is not efficient and it is outdated. There is no pool if you are traveling with children that like to swim. The last time we stayed here a couple of years ago, a breakfast buffet was included at the... More

We had a layover in Seattle that was extended to two nites due to a hurricane in Hawaii. The room was clean and very quiet for being so close to the airport. The staff was very accommodating with our last minute changes and they have a convenient shuttle from the airport. Many people mentioned you could walk to the airport... More

Easy access for everything. Easy shopping great food, 5 is right there both North and South. Mall is close you will love the place and the stay. AND the Airport is right across the street so you really do not need a rental vehicle..........

Overall the room was just fine but the AC continues to be a problem (based on reviews by others): we had it cranked to coldest setting and it still did not cool well. Beyond that, the fitness center needs some dumbbells or other type of resistance gear.

Red Lion does the job for travelers who want to stay close to Seatac. When traveling, we sometimes stop in Seattle to conduct business and break up what would otherwise be a long flight to other destinations. Red Lion is quite convenient as it is located just outside the airport east entrance on International Blvd, just a ten minute walk... More

When we first arrived we were totally impressed with our room, we started to lose interest in the hotel as a whole throughout our stay. First of all, the pool wasn't open, which was one of the reasons why we chose it. The beds were very comfortable yet sleep would be cut short by people having early morning showers -... More

Completely impressed w/ this chain. So sad that they are only in the West, I would book them again anywhere. Being right at the airport I expected noise. None. The elevator and ice machine were right outside our room, no noise. The room was huge and appointed so well. Wish I had booked it for my entire Seattle stay, but... More
