Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! While our seasonal pool is outdoors, we do have an indoor whirlpool spa which is quite cozy in the Winter time. Hope to see you again soon!

We came to Seattle for a ball game at Safeco Field and stayed two nights here. It's great that they have a free joint shuttle service with a valet parking company. You can count on no more than a 5 minute wait for a ride to or from the airport. AND ... here's the great part ... you can take that shuttle to the airport, walk over the skywalk from the terminal to the Link Light Rail Station and ride right to Safeco Field or downtown Seattle for MUCH cheaper than taking a taxi. You don't have to worry about where to park your car downtown.
The staff here were very friendly and helpful. There's no free breakfast, but the restaurant next door has a wonderful breakfast buffet for under $8. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the price was right. We'd stay here again for sure.
If you're going to a Mariners game DON'T buy tickets to park at the field. It'll take an hour just to get out of the lot (let alone drive the freeway) and your blood pressure will skyrocket. Stay here. You don't need a car to get to Safeco Field.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel overlook a pond and are quiet.

What an oustanding, informative review! We're so happy that you pointed out how convenient it is to take the Link Light Rail from our property to Downtown Seattle- it is an extremely convenient, economical way to get to the best tourist spots in town (be sure to ask our Front Desk for a brochure on all of the stops/transit times). Thank you again, so much for posting this information for all of our guests to see! Stay Comfortable with us again soon.

We've stayed here several times and have never had a bad experience. The desk staff has always been very friendly, the rooms are large and really comfortable and quiet; Internet access is easy to use. When we've flown out of town we've found the packages available for hotel and parking are fantastic; and the people with Master Parking are also very friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: We've stayed 3 times and every room has been comfortable and quiet

Our family of 5 has stayed at the Red Lion Seatac for at least the last 5-6 times we've flown out of Seattle, we don't even shop around anymore. The room rate is great and reasonable when you do a Park, Stay and Fly package. If we haven't had an early flight departure we have enjoyed the breakfast buffet, if not, its just on the shuttle and off to the airport. We live in Canada but find it much more reasonable to fly out of Seattle when flying to Hawaii and California, even when you factor in the extra hotel it's far more economical.

Much improved customer service and hospitality over the last time I stayed here. Great location, nice rooms and reasonable rates. Only downside is no room service but a restaurant and coffee shop are in the same parking lot right next door.

Great upgrades in service and I will definitely be returning!

Fantastic review! I'm pleased you had such a great experience with us. While we are under the same management, we have recently undergone some cosmetic renovation, which includes new bedding packages, new microwaves and refrigerators in each room, and brand new LCD flat screens with granite topped credenzas. Thank you again for the review, we are so greatful you took the time to share your experience with us!

Overall a great location, right next to seatac and about 20 minutes from downtown.

The high speed internet is .02MB/S. Terrible. It's like that down in the lobby and up in the rooms.

Beds are great, nice tv also. Microwave and refrigerator in every room is great.

The toilets are extremely loud after flushing and the pipes bang in the wall.

There is a liquor store within walking distance if you must get drunk.

There is a park and ride adjacent to the hotel. Shuttle service would be great for business trips.

Could not fault the room for the three of us. Very large room with 2 double beds - very comfortable, firm mattress with a build-in topper. Didn't like the $2 charge for the water. Tea/coffee making facilities and microwave.

The courtesy bus is a Master Park Airport Valet Parking, which runs every 5-7 mins. It has a Red Lion on the side and, if one is not there, there is a courtesy phone to check. The hotel is only 5 mins away.

Gregory's Grill was next door for dinner in the evening, breakfast has a specials omelette menu, otherwise there was a buffet for $7.95 which was popular although a little cold.
