Northern Quest was sold out, so this was our second choice and were very happy. Check out was a breeze. The entire property was super clean and well taken care of. The bed and pillows were super comfortable. The bathrooms were clean, spacious, and the water was soft (bonus!). Breakfast at the restaurant was convenient with descent menu options and... More

The hotel shuttle picked us up at the airport around 5:30pm on a Friday. The driver was friendly and chatted a bit on the drive to the hotel. The website says “complimentary airport and downtown shuttle service” so we asked if we could stop at a grocery store to pick up a few things. The driver said he couldn’t do... More

The rooms could use some refreshing. They already have modern TVs and beds. They just need a bit of TLC in terms of carpet and wall coverings. What is really nice about this place is the staff and location. I am always treated like a king here and the location can't be beat for the price. One of Red Lion's... More

We needed a place for a quick overnight in Spokane and stumbled on the Red Lion River Inn's Cyber Monday pricing of 40% of hotel rates. Seemed like a GREAT price for a prime location, which it was in terms of proximity to the shows and errands we had planned. However, the hotel is older and shows some wear and... More

We have stayed at this hotel about 3 times in the last 5 years and have found the service, cleanliness and frienliness of the staff to be consistantly good. We love the location on the river and the fact that we can walk the river paths to the rink and the downtown area. The hotel is at a stage where... More

I am used to staying in boutique hotels and didn't know what to expect from the Red Lion River Inn. But I must say it was wonderful. The staff was funny and nice, the rooms perfectly fine. It isn't a high-end hotel but I found everything to be comfortable and clean. I was most surprised by the restaurant. The food... More

I was worried the place would be a little run down, but it wasn't. It was just as nice as the more expensive hotels in the area. But what stood out was the friendliness and service of all staff. I usually don't write reviews, but this place deserves one. I'm in Spokane on business and when I went out this... More

Dear Guest, That sounds like a potentially very stressful scenario! We are so thrilled that we were able to assist you in smoothing it over. Our approach to our guests is to maintain a 'home away from home' or 'extended family' attitude, and it sounds like we were able to successfully implement it in your case. We hope that you... More

Beautiful property and central location in city. Staff attentive and friendly. Buffet breakfast cold but if you order off menu it is good. Free parking is always good. Coffee pot in the room and in the lobby.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Red Lion River Inn. We had a wonderful time in Spokane and the Red Lion was a big part of the reason why. Excellent location, super clean, everything worked right, good breakfast, beautiful grounds, great bed and shower. We will stay again and again.

The staff is efficient and helpful. The room very clean. The bathroom could use some additional cleaning. The breakfast was great and the staff attentive. The location of the motel is excellent, with easy access to anywhere in the city. The prices are very competitive. Overall a very pleasant stay at Red Lion River Inn. We will definitely be back.
