“Interesting?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

The Red Lion in Bend is definitely an older establishment. However, they have done a pretty good job of updating the rooms. The rooms are spacious, clean, and quiet. Fairly close to the Old Mill District and to downtown. (However, we felt like we were on the "other side" of the fence?). The check in process was efficient, the late afternoon cookies were a hit with the children, and we enjoyed the free wifi.
The only unfortunate occurrence of the evening was finding a beetle on one of the pillows? We were a bit freaked out that it may have been the unmentionable "bed bug" - it was not. Whew...
Anyway, it wasn't a bad experience - just different.

We checked in after midnight without reservations. We had been driving all day and were very tired. The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. She was able to match the rate we had seen on an outside travel site. The room was clean and comfortable. The next morning, we were offered breakfast even though the breakfast room closed about a half hour earlier. The staff at this hotel made our stay very enjoyable.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Red Lion! The rooms were great-- very clean and nice. Don't let the "motel" style of this place deter you from the outside. The rooms are a great value inside with comfy, clean quarters. The service was excellent on our arrival-- so courteous on check out, but I want to believe that was an exception. They appear to be proud of their continental breakfast, but that was pretty average.

The Red Lion Hotel is located on NE 3rd street, which is the same as the 97 Business loop, making it very easy to find, as well as being relatively close to Downtown Bend. It was a 15 minute walk to the downtown area, and only about 5 minutes to get to the river.

The decor of the hotel is a little dated, but we found that the older (solid) construction was a real plus. Despite the proximity of the hotel to the major street, the room was very quiet.

Our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.
For the price, I don't think you can find a better deal than the Red Lion in Bend.

This a called a "hotel" but the rooms are not enclosed and you drive right up to them-just like a "motel." We booked online and were told on arrival that our rate would be adjusted after presenting our AAA card, but when we went to check out we were told that the AAA rate does not apply. Both of the receptionists were the least helpful, most rude people I have ever encountered during a hotel stay. When we asked for a receipt, they only stated that they were unable to give us one due to our room being booked online and we were never given an actual final price from the hotel. So frustrating! The pool and hot tub are in the middle of the parking lot and not enclosed. The room we were in was supposed to be a "garden view" room, and it was a view of the street with some flowers planted next to it. Overall, this is an incredibly over-priced MOTEL and you would be better off saving some money and staying at the Super 8. On the plus side, they do have a great breakfast!

Thank you for staying with us and I apologize for any miscommunication regarding your rate and bill. If you booked through a online vendor, we do not know what you paid or what nightly rate was booked. If you would like to contact me, I would be happy to review your reservation to ensure whether it was accurate or not. Our rates are based on our local market as well as our position in the market.

I am happy to hear you enjoyed the breakfast. I do look forward to hearing from you directly and to be of service to you again if your travels bring you our way.

We were in town for a wedding and it coincided with a bicycle race so the town and hotel were full. Despite that, we never heard our neighbors either above us or next to us. We heard them outside, but never in the room. Also, the front desk people were very helpful and efficient. The breakfast was good and with the Black Bear Diner next door, there is no way you'll go hjngry,. It's also in a great location as it's right on the main drag and close to highway 20. I can definitely recommend this hotel.
