I paid $89 for two Queens. The room was clean and modern. It had a well functioning flat screen TV, microwave and fridge. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet. The HVAC unit was newer and did a very good job of keeping the temperature consistent, without making much noise at all. Breakfast is included and really... More

We recently stayed at the Red Lion River Inn in Spokane, Washington for two nights. The hotel is old, the condition was sub par. Our bathtub would not drain, our bed was very uncomfortable with a dip in the middle. We woke up the first morning at 7am to a small dog barking non-stop for an hour in the room... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights from Jan, 7- to Jan10, 2016. All of my family were bitten badly by bedbugs. Unfortunately, our reactions to bedbugs were delayed about a week later. Our son just shows symptoms starting today. There are a lot of information regarding bedbugs online. Be careful when you book the room!!!

Dear Tengyan party, I was shocked to read your recent review. This kind of information is taken very seriously. I personally am a part of the Management team that oversees the rooms department and I have heard nothing including the entire Management staff, in regards to the above claim. As I am sure you are aware, bed bugs are an... More

Our family of 5 stayed one night in the poolside suite. We loved the table that allowed us to play games and eat together as a family. The thermostat was hard to regulate but overall it was a great room. We loved the breakfast buffet and a beautiful view of the river while we ate.

I spent 4 nights there while working, and it was certainly adequate for me. The room was clean and quiet, though they could improve upon the linens and blankets provided. The shower was hot and bathroom clean. Also, though on occasion I heard somebody above me (on first floor), in general the room was quiet for sleeping. I used the... More

Hall carpets need to be replaced, but the room was fine. Great location for exploring the City or seeing an event at the Spokane Arena. Didn't stay long enough to use any amenities. Right on the river and bike/walking path.

I was able to get a deal on Google for around $80 after taxes... For that price, it was a nice stay. The facilities are a bit dated but not bad. I would stay there again if I was able to get it for that price. I do not think it is worth the advertised prices that I have seen... More

The room was very sizeable and accomodated 4 of us easily. The highlight of the facility is the location. It is located right along the Spokane River walking trail which provides access to lots of activities. We walked to and from the Chinese Lantern Festival in the evening with no problems.

The Red Lion River Inn (not to be confused with the Red Lion Hotel) is beautifully positioned on the banks of the Spokane River. The rooms are situated in wooden buildings that were surprisingly quiet. Almost no contact noise from neighboring rooms. Beds are king-size and of good quality.
