The location of the Red Lion near the airport is probably its best feature. They have an excellent shuttle and the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. We needed toothpaste and deodorant and the front desk gave us complimentary name brand travel size items. The bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable even though the room was clean and looked...

I stayed at the Red Lion Seattle Airport. I had an issue with my deadbolt not aligning with the opening in the door jamb. I was stuck in my room when I tried to leave the following morning. I called the front desk and maintenance showed up within 5 minutes and after employing a crowbar, had me out in another... More

We stayed here the night before a very early flight to Orange County. We've stayed here before for the convenience and the fact that they will keep your car while you are gone. The hotel is older, but is kept in good repair and has been redecorated since we stayed there last. They have food available for purchase in the... More

The pluses: walking distance to the airport terminal (or free shuttles every 5-7 minutes); large, clean rooms with comfortable easy chair and ottoman for reading; decent lighting; coffeemaker; bathrobe; lamp with outlet for charging phone or computer; Gregory's (bar and restaurant) is adjacent to the hotel. The minuses: lamp outlet works only when lamp is on, so useless for overnight... More

With an early a.m. flight to Honolulu just before Christmas, we didn't want anything to go wrong with transportation, etc., so we booked a one-night stay at theRed Lion. Other hotels of about the same status offered specials, but when we tried to books, there were all kinds of stipulations and, of course, a rate hike (up-sell), so we stay... More

Took over 15 minutes to check in, one person on duty. Checked in at 9pm on Christmas Eve. Park and fly does not work smoothly, highly recommend another hotel. Parking not as promised. Hotel also very old.

Thank you so much for taking time to review our hotel. I'm disappointed to hear that your stay with us was anything less than stellar. As I'm sure you can see by our other reviews, what you experienced is not our norm, and absolutely does not meet Red Lion standards. I'll be bringing a print out of your review to... More

The Red Lion near the Sea-Tac airport is great place place for an overnight stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is super close to the airport and major conference centers in the Sea-Tac area. I stayed here to get away from the overpriced conference hotels and ended up spending less than half of their rates.

This hotel is easy to find, which is a feat in the Seattle area!! I had a king bed, fairly comfy, with the smallest bathroom I have had in a few years. Love the free wifi and the location. It would get four stars if it were a bit cleaner, and if the elevator didn't make an odd noise that... More
