Check-in was bad, I was ignored because an angry pizza delivery man came in and wasn't told a room number so all the front desk agents got involved mid-checki-in and prolonged an already bad check-in, the noise in the hoel was bad, ,I wasn't told the ice machine on my floor was broken so the trip upstairs and the long...

Stayed here while on route to another destination. My first time staying at a Red Lion chain hotel. The hotel looked like most typical chain hotels in that price range. My complaints would be that it's next to a busy road, and even though my room wasn't close to the road, I did hear a lot of road noise. Breakfast... More

This hotel is convenient for those who have no intention of walking around the neighborhood which happens to be scary. Stay here only if staying one night and heading back on to the I5 the following morning. Good breakfast, friendly staff and there is even a swimming pool. Good soundproofing ensures you do not hear the traffic noise from the... More

I was really disappointed. Paid the same price as we did for the Hampton but that hotel was a million times better in comparison..... The carpet was stained, the shower door was broken when we got there and fell out in the middle of each shower nearly falling on TOP of us. The layout offered no privacy, whatsoever. And everything... More

I read some not so positive reviews , but I had to book this hotel because my first 2 choices were not available. I was very pleased overall with my stay. Sometimes it is worth taking a chance and this one worked out well. Some suggestions. The sofa should be a pull out in the suites, or have 2 doubles... More

We value each and every one of our guests and I truly apologize that we failed to provide you the best possible service. There is no reason, nor is it acceptable, to be checked into a room that was not properly cleaned. I would like to apologize for the condition of the rest of the hotel as well. I would... More

The front desk staff at check in was not friendly nor helpful. I did not feel welcome nor appreciated. I had less than clean and quiet room. The room A/C unit did not work properly. My real complaint really is the unfriendly front desk. Check out was better but not by much. Not my favorite place to stay.

not an overly friendly hotel in terms of hotel staff, unfortunately. Staff must be overworked or underpaid- nobody is smiling or happy to be there. it's an old hotel renovated somewhat with mediocre quality renos.

I had never been here before and I should have checked yelp for the rating but I was in a hurry. I had to meet someone in the area so I made a reservation here. The first thing I noticed was the smoke detector in my room had a plastic bag around it. It was like they painted around it... More

This hotel was nasty! I wrote a long review on the hotel website and it said there was inappropriate language and would not post. The words I used were disgusting, nasty, scummy pool, filthy!
