Husband and I stayed here 1/29/08-1/31/08. He had an interview at a local hospital so the HR staff set us up at Red Lion Inn for the 2 nights.
Once we arrived at the hotel, the girl behind the desk was soft spoken but nice. It's only 2 stories, so we had to lug our stuff up the stairs...the carpet is this hideous floral design, i don't know, can't really describe the decor...just really old fashion?!
When we got into the room, it was extremely large and exceptionally clean. I was afraid that this "inn/motel" style would be cruddy and dirty, but that was not the case. The bed was actually comfortable. The bathroom was a good size. Has a pretty large tub for an "inn".
Down the hall, they have complimentary ice and water. They provide water bottles for you to use. Although I used it, i was a bit skeptical as to how clean these plastic bottles were; but i didnt get sick or die, so it must be ok.
On the first floor, there is a restaurant...forget the name of it, but it seems like its a local hang out for the locals in town during the nights.
For a hotel snob, i was impressed by the comfort. It sort of felt like staying a friend's old grandma's apartment. Coming from east coast, the pace of life if a lot slower, which is welcoming.
I have posted some pictures of the hotel room.
