Stay at any other national chain hotel in Yakima do not stay at the Red Lion it is the worse run hotel that I have ever stayed at. Food you cannot eat, equipment that does not work, staff who does not care and no manager around to resolve problems over a three day stay. Motel from hell

I give the Red Lion an Okay due to the following: The Staff needs to keep the customer informed of issue when brought to their attention. Or they should leave a calling card, with description of work that was done or could not be repaired etc… in the room when maintenance has to be done. Example My AC went out... More

The room key cards did not work. We were told that all of the staff was new as the Hotel had just recently changed hands. The front desk staff was unsure how to do things. The staff in the Lounge was not only not friendly but seemed to make a point to avoid you, and when they did make contact... More

Thank you for providing this valuable feedback so that we can address these areas with our staff. There is no reason, nor is it acceptable, to have a poorly run catered dinner. We apologize for your event running out of food for both the dinner and the breakfast. We apologize tremendously for the experiences you encountered during your stay and... More

My wife and I stayed at this Red Lion about a month ago as we had a very good impression of the place from a few pleasurable stays in the past. This particular stay was terrible. Rooms were not ready for a lot of our convention folks with reservations at the normal 3:00 PM check in time and even later.... More

Had stayed here before w/out problems, but this time the first room we were given hadn't been cleaned. The next one we were assigned we couldn't get into several times because the card key didn't work reliably (at one point they told us we were trying to get into the wrong room and gave us keys to the one next...

I work at another Red Lion Hotel and was very surprised by how BAD the Yakima property has become. I asked to NOT be put in the Townhouse unit, which I was. It smelled really bad, musty and stale. The room was freezing cold, mind you the temp was only in the low 80's. I asked that my credit card... More

Another hotel "campus" that is located indowntown Yakima, close to all the thigs you come to this part of eastern Washington for. In this labyrinthine low rise layout there are walkways, sculptured trees, two cool swimming pools, restaurant and a lounge to practice you salsa steps on weekend nights. A running pump behind the wall in the room made for... More

While the overall stay at the Yakima Red Lion was acceptable we were assigned a room that someone was already in and when we went back to the front desk the person who helped us seem "unconcerned" and was not sure what to do. The other front desk person had to help. The room we did stay in was not... More

We have stayed at the Red Lion many times as a group. It is my understanding out group receives a reduced rate. This is NOT a reason to treat your guests badly. Reception was horrible. When a group of 400 stays at your facility you SHOULD commit the name of that group to your memory and, when corrected, laugh it... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay with us. I would like to truly apologize for the any unprofessionalism that was shown to you by our staff. I would also like to apologize for the air conditioning not working properly in many of the rooms. This is definitely not acceptable and we certainly understand why... More

Upon arrival, there was no TV in our room and we had to wait about an hour before one was delivered. The TV cabinet was so dusty that I felt obliged to clean it myself so I wouldn't be grossed out. The light switches were filthy and the bathroom mirror had only been cleaned on the lower 1/2 while the... More
