Stayed at the Red Lion Jantzen Beach for 2 nights in June 2013.
The staff is great. I was greeted warmly checking in/out of the hotel. And the process was fast and painless.
The location is good. It's right off I-5 which made it easy to find. There's a large mall very close by, although it's under construction so there's not a lot of stores available just yet. There's a Target though, which carries pretty much everything you need while travelling.
The hotel is right by the river so an evening stroll was just lovely for my family.
Free parking, free wifi. No breakfast included though.
The hallways and my room had this old building smell to it. It bothers some people but not others. Me, I am sensitive to smells and it was a major turn off for me. My wife thinks I'm too picky though.
The housekeeping needs some improvement. In my room (457) the lighting fixer above the sink has stains on it. It looks like somebody shook a bottle of coke really hard and opened it right underneath the fixer.
The ice bucket leaks.
I stepped on this small piece of plastic in the bathroom. It looked like a plastic piece of jewelry that fell off a doll. I have 2 boys and they don't play with dolls, so I'm pretty sure it was left behind from the guest before us.
All in all, it was an average stay. There's nothing terrible about this hotel, nor is there anything great that makes me want to come back. The room was supposedly on sale for $100/night, down from its usual $140/night. I thought $100 was ok. But I wouldn't pay $140 to stay here.
