The Red Lion is clean, great location and has great amenities.......pool, fitness room, complimentary breakfast, and free internet access! All good stuff. I will definitely make this my hotel choice if in the Tacoma area.

Some very rude staff and some pretty nice ones (Margaret you know you are the best). Don't try to stay at this hotel on a "cash basis". The internet was down almost more than it was up. The room was clean and the breakfast o.k. The t.v. remote didn't work well at all (either really loud or way too quiet).... More

This is very average. The elevator and location are a tad scary and the breakfast wasn't impressive at all. There was nothing about it that made it more than a basic continental breakfast. The only protein was powder eggs and jiggly sausage links. Other than that you have your waffle and some cereal. It was unimpressive. The room was nice... More

My wife, son and I got a room here for my son's 2nd birthday since we wanted to have some family swimming time in December. Great price on the room and great experience. Looks like the hotel was recently remodeled so the decor was very pleasing. The two girls at the front desk were super friendly and helpful. We grabbed... More

We stayed here for a lacrosse tournament. The hotel allows pets for an additional $15 per night plus each room has a generious size mini fridge and microwave. These were helpful in keeping snacks for the team. Breakfast was nice but staff had to be called upon to refill items. Staff helpful but many are new to thier job. I... More

I generally reserve red lion for its pet friendly areas but this one had none. The area is not safe so hard to take dog on a walk or for their potty. Only place I found was a small area at the end of a huge parking lot. also weather was hot outside so we were looking forward to some... More

I wasn't expecting to have to stop for the night but Red Lion was the first hotel I saw coming off the freeway so I picked it. I wasn't really expecting to pay as much as I did for a room however. Overall was a clean hotel with very friendly staff

Loved the hot complimentary breakfast, waffles and eggs were great! The pool was not up and running the first two days, but we got our chance on the third. The check out time is pretty strict, but ok.

Customer service was less than stellar. Paid over 95 a night under r&r plan and still don't know how to get future free night or card. Hotel is run down, furniture and carpets stained, needs overhauled

We stayed here on vacation the middle of June. Got there on a Wednesday and spent 4 nights. The hotel was nice. Large, quiet, clean rooms, good beds, good internet. We were on the first floor and never heard any noise at all. Good hot breakfast, just wish it lasted later than 9:00. Plenty of seating and free local newspaper.... More
