My husband and I were in town and decided to stay an extra night. I called the red lion and had great service making our reservation as well as when we arrived. We have a pet and the room was great. We were given a room with access to the river trail right from our room.

Very friendly staff! But the service was slow except in the lounge. Seemed understaffed. Food was terrible and overpriced. Hotel and room were filthy! Especially the carpets. Disgusting. I would give this hotel at 9 if it was based on how friendly the staff were and it's proximity to the convention center but a 3 on everything else. Yuck.

Thank you so much for your recent feed back. I was very concerned and shocked to read the experience you had during your recent stay. This is not ordinary or acceptable and I will reach out to the Management staff to discuss. We do have an amazing staff and location and hope that you will return in the future. More

Older property, very well maintained. Short walk to Gonzaga. Right on riverwalk so can walk downtown, view falls, great dining within easy walking distance. Nicest, friendliest staff I have ever met!!

We stayed here for a long weekend while visiting my sister at Gonzaga. Hotel was clean and although older it has been updated on the interior. The staff was friendly and got us checked in quickly. There was no pool on site (seasonal) but they let my kids use the other red lion hotel pool that was a block away.... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We had reserved our stay a week in advance. Joey made the check-in experience very quick and easy. Your hotel was very convenient walking distance to the Spokane Convention Center (where the Home & Garden Show was held) and to the downtown area.

When we arrived the reservation made by Expedia could not be found. When located it was for a day 13 days away. However the staff was excellent, we got a room on the river with a view, quiet, information as to contacting Expedia by phone (they refunded the "non-refundable" amount charged), and all was well. Front desk staff was amazing... More

Good location, close to downtown restaurants and shopping. Most everything is in walking distance, including the Riverpark area. The hotel provided a free shuttle service for places that we did not want to walk to or after dark. Sometimes we had to wait because the shuttles were busy with hotel transport (another plus), but they were very good about telling... More

Really nice location. Easy access to the walking trails to downtown. Have stayed in other Hotels in the Spokane city center. Hallways may be a bit warn in some entrance areas but the room and washroom was spotless!! Easy parking and lots of green space. Our room was very quiet did not hear a sole.This truly is a great value.
