“Old Reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Stayed two nights here recently for a conference and was very happy with the quality of the rooms and the helpfulness of the staff. My room was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very ample and my children ate for free.

Room Tip: Stay on the west wing of the hotel in order to park near an entrance and have a quieter stay.

130 members arrived at the hotel on May 17, 2013 and departed on the 19th. We enjoyed interacting with the friendly, helpful staff. Our group was served 3 meals each day and breakfast on Sunday. The food was exceptional and the service was on time, quiet and efficient. We spent time at the outdoor pool in the afternoons, following workshops and meetings. the banquet on saturday evening included prime rib (it was very good!!). The hotel is located a couple blocks of a great shopping mall that included a Macys. Be aware the bar closes at 9pm except on Saturday.

Stayed one night at the Columbia Center Red Lion. It was clean and comfortable and so close to the mall and Regal Cinema. Have stayed here quite a few times and always found it welcoming. They have a nice garden area with a waterfall. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the courtyard and ground floor.

135 Altrusans descended on Kennewick ,WA on May 16 - 19 for the weekend conference. we received all the help we needed and requested from the hotel staff. our meals were served efficiently and the menu and quality of foods were very good. I think our community service organization would be happy to return to Kennewick Red Lion in the future for a conference.

Room Tip: rooms at the back side away from the main street are quieter. the pool is very nice with lots of se...

The location is directly next door to lots of shopping! I just travelled with a group of women for a conference here! The rooms were roomy. Had older coffee makers but adequate! all rooms had a microwave and refrigerator! But, be aware, there are no elevators. You have to carry your luggage up stairs or ask for assistance, which they are happy to provide. The cleaning staff is great! The staff at the front desk also very helpful. The food was just ok.

Room Tip: If you have a room on the lower floors you will hear upstairs noise, but you won't have to trave...

I travel throughout the NW on business, through cities large and small. I'm always happy to find a Red Lion property, as I can count upon cleanliness, security, ease of parking & internet access. I especially appreciate the staff at the Red Lion Hotel Columbia Center. They are consistently pleasant, helpful and responsive, regardless of time of arrival!

We had a good experience at the Red Lion in Kennewick. The hotel was clean & comfortable, the furnishings were new in our room (though the carpet & wallpaper could stand to be updated), and the front desk attendant was pleasant and helpful. We were just staying for one night on our way to Portland, so we didn't really need anything fancier.
Some downsides were, as I mentioned, older carpeting and wallpaper (though there was no musty smell associated with this), the fact that the hotel is very large with no elevators (this wasn't a problem for us, since we're in our 20s and have no problem getting our bags to our rooms, but this may need to be taken into consideration for those who may have more trouble getting around), and the general area around the hotel doesn't offer much ambiance. The hotel is situated fairly close to an airport and surrounded by a plethora of strip malls. This is very convenient, but not scenic, if that's what you're looking for.
Also, it should be noted that there is no free breakfast. Again, this wasn't an issue for us, as we try to avoid continental breakfasts, but it's something to keep in mind.
Overall, our stay was just what we needed and we would stay here again.
