We stayed here for a convention last week. It was nice to be able to walk across the street and not deal with parking. The room was adequate, lacking microwave/frig. There was a Keurig single serve in the room. The bed was fine. Lighting in the bathroom was terrible ... and no lighted magnifying mirror, which I've come to expect.... More

I always want to start with the positives when there is challenging feedback. I stay with Red Lions due to having some of the most comfortable beds. I had a great nights sleep when it came to the bed. Now the challenges. I am sad to see this site going downhill. I have stayed here for years. My last 2... More

I booked for staff to attend a training at the Red Lion In Yakima. He was put in the back part of the building, the staff referred to it as the older section. The door would not lock correctly. There was a used bar of soap in the shower. I was very disappointed as my family has been a premier... More

Very clean room and super comfortable bed! The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was the off season and the hotel was not very full. The food and drink in the lobby restaurant/bar was excellent. They served a hot breakfast each morning. Some room came with free breakfast, in not it was $5.95 and well worth it. Lots of... More

When you attend a conference, you must stay at the conference hotel. But frankly, I am tired of being banned to the "back 40 annex." Every time I've stayed here for a conference, we are in the back annex with little parking. This time we had a problem with the air, although the management was prompt in sending the repair... More

This was one of the worst hotel experiences ever. Poorly managed, untrained staff and poor maintenance. A door handle fell off in my hand, the timer in the bathroom didn't work, the phone didn't work correctly, the cash machine was inoperable, the printer in lobby was without ink, the bartender (in the middle of fine wine county) didn't know the...

Nice clean hotel convenient to the convention center and within walking distance to a number of eateries. Staff is knowledgable and polite. If, however, you require wifi to get work done, you might want to move on ... the wifi crawls .. less than 1mb up and down, it was painful watching the equivalent of dialup over a broadband wifi...

Our training was adjacent to the open atrium. The room was nice but dated. Since the ceilings aren't high with built in projector screens, the bottom of each slide was too low for the people in the back row to see. The water on the table was kept cold and full the coffee downstairs was good but ran out by... More

The location is within walking distance to lots of great eateries. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The lounge at the hotel was nice and the drinks were good. The price was acceptable for this area.

My NON smoking room reeked of stale smoke and since the hotel was sold out there were no other options. They made no apologies or compensation for this situation. I will not stay there again and won't be recommending this hotel to anyone else.
