This is a great spot to stay before flying or for meetings that require people to fly in for. It is literally right across the street from the airport and you can walk from baggage claim to the hotel within 10 minutes. I stayed for a business meeting and the event planning staff were great to work with. Very attentive... More

Even though it is close to the airport the noise didn't bother me at all. The walls do seem to a be a bit thin though, and I heard a few people running in the hall. Also, when the guests in the next room took a shower it was fairly loud. It didn't bother me, but if you are a... More

Found clean and spacious with adjoining rooms. Service is pretty professional and helpful. Walking distance to the airport, but free shuttle parking and service is right next door for free.

Called front desk and we were moved to new room within 5 minutes. The room they moved us to was same kind just different floor.... More

We had a couple of days to wait for our car to be delivered in Seattle before driving to Eastern Washington and decided to stay at the Red Lion because it was close to the airport and the Light Rail. We were very happy to find out that there were also quite a few decent restaurants all within 2-3 blocks.We... More

For a mid-range airport stopover, this is a terrific choice. Close to airport, very clean, large, comfortable rooms with fridge and super-comfy beds, nice outdoor pool & indoor hot tub, and a bountiful, good quality, all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet next door for about $8. I simply can't think of anything wrong with it!

I was a bit worried when we pulled into the parking lot, as this hotel is so very close to the airport. But our first-floor room, which looked out into the parking lot, was quiet; I only heard a little noise from the hallway or a neighboring shower. The bed was above-average in comfort for a hotel bed, and all... More

Hate to be the wet blanket in the midst of other favorable reviews. This is an older property that is relying on the Red Lion chain's reputation. The rooms are large and kept clean, bed was very comfortable. Linens and towels fine. Old style TV, although some of the rooms have new ones. No on site restaurant, although just next... More

We stayed at this hotel only one night. The lobby and front desk did not give a very good first impression. The room seems outdated and it needs a makeover. There's a charge for Internet use, no free breakfast, $2.00 for a bottle of water in the room( brought a big case at target for $3.00), Doesn't seem safe in... More

I stayed here the night before my flight back to Europe. I'd been traveling for three weeks and needed a quiet, restful night and that's exactly what I got. I don't have a clue what amenities they offer other than free, robust wifi, but I can tell you I slept very well and took an incredible shower, and that the... More
