“A notch above your average motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Newly painted & renovated, close to highway - some might say too close, as you can feel the vibrations from both the I-5 and the train. Fitness room and pool look bright and clean - but what we really wanted was the hot tub, which was unfortunately closed. Got a great introductory rate, which put our stay on a holiday weekend in the same ballpark as a budget motel, but with much better amenities. Standard complimentary breakfast, but the two free drink tickets were a surprise.

We booked into this hotel because of the price. Pleasantly surprised. Very clean, great staff, great breakfast. Not a luxury hotel but an excellent place for those of us on a budget but still expecting a clean and updated look to a hotel. We initially booked for one night and ended up staying for 4 nights....very happy. Oh and free cocktails and appetizers Monday to Thursday nights,,,,makes it even a better stay.

We stayed 5 nights in Kent. The RedLion staff was super nice. The location was great. Very quiet (except for the train whistles) and wonderful, comfy beds! We really enjoyed our time there! Will stay again when in Seattle area.

We booked a reservation based on the reviews here on tripadvisor. I'm glad we did. We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. The children had fun in the pool, the front desk employees were excellent, and we enjoyed the breakfast. The only negative is when we drove up to the front in order to check in there were about four or five men standing around the front door smoking. It wasn't a pretty site. In fact everyone in our car groaned and we said that we better start looking for another place because this place looks unsafe. We were pleasantly surprised. Fortunately there was a rear entrance we were able to use and not have to go through the smoke filled front entrance. My son has very severe asthma and cigarette smoke is an asthma trigger for him. I would not hesitate at all to book this hotel again. Well worth the price.

Great room & supplies, decent breakfast, and best of all, when I forgot two of our phone chargers and a power cord in our room, the desk kindly called the new occupants of the room who set the power cord out in the hall for us to retrieve. (The person who cleaned the room had already brought the chargers downstairs.) Also! they allowed us to leave our car in the parking lot for three hours after checkout. I will definitely return to this motel.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms in this motel are close to railroad tracks. The noise did not affect my sleep...

The rooms are nice and ours had a dishwasher unit. The bathrooms had push button soap, lotion, shampoo, and conditioner containers. I had not seen that before.Their service was really good. Fernando, at the front desk,in particular was very helpful in our stay. We would definitely come back again.

It was very comfortable and very affordable would only improve on the smell of the shampoo and body wash.. (more sporty smell) the accommodations were very acceptable and the breakfast was great.. good variety to choose from. Might introduce some more healthy options though. I am definitely going to stay again. I can say that your staff was very informative about the area and what to do.. I would get your cleaning staff the ones that don't speak very good english some classes that will help they were extremely polite thought the language barrier is hard to over come..
