“Pleasantly Surprised!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Very nice hotel and a great value! I had never even heard of Red Lion Hotels, but decided to give it a try based on other reviews and the low price. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by what I was offered... Large/clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, reliable shuttle service, within walking distance to airport, safe & secure, quiet - all at a great price! As others have said, you're extremely close to airport but are not bothered at all by airplane noise. It's only a 15 min drive into downtown Seattle, but there's also a really nice shopping center (Westfield Southcenter) nearby that you can go to for shopping, food, and entertainment. I would highly recommend staying here.

What a great review! Thank you so much for taking the time to write about our property. It sounds like you had a chance to take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service we offer to Westfield Southcenter Mall! This service is courtesy of Seattle Express, and is a definite guest favorite for exploring the Seattle Southside area; there are tons of great restaurants and shops, which make us a prime location for shoppers. Thank you agian for the review, we hope you visit soon!

"I'm in a cloud!" My wife was surrounded by large white pillows, crisp white sheets and a comforter, allatop a thivk mattress topped by a billowy pad.She though the bed was heaven. I liked the large workdesk, flat-screen cable TV and the free (though a bit slow) wifi.
The Masterpark shuttle drivers and hotel staff were great. Very friendly and efficient. I'd had packages sent to the hotel for me and they were waiting on my arrival.
The restaurant, Gregory's, serves an ample buffet breakfast for $9.
This is a great place to stay. We spent two nights prior to a cruise, and one night post-cruise based o the airport location and price, and we'd return in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Lake view (in back) may be slightly quieter, as it is more shielded from the busy highway and airpor...

Red Lion will get you picked up at the airport and get you back when you are ready. The hotel restaurant serves good food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and even though you are near the airport you do not stay awake listening to jets.

I had never stayed at a Red Lion Hotel before. I was suprised at how comfortable the beds were for a motel in this price range. They are pillowtop and true queen beds, not doubles, unless you get the king bed room. The rooms are good size and attractive. The rooms have a flatscreen TV, refrigerator, microwave, and many other amenities. The bathrooms are well equipped with good showerheads. There is a restaurant next door that is part of the hotel. They have a breakfast buffet for around $8. It's not very good quality or variety, but it is quick and convenient. Even though the Red Lion is across the street from the airport, we did not hear the airplanes. However, we did hear the slamming of doors. The doors are quite heavy and make a lot of noise if not closed gently. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall Red Lion is a good value for the money and a good choice.

What a great review! I'm so glad you had such a great stay with us, and that your bed was a great size (and comfortable as well!). We often recieve many compliments on how quiet our hotel is for being so close to the airport; I'm glad you found this to be true as well. Please visit again soon!

The Red Lion Inn team has been excellent every time we've stayed there. The rooms are fantastic; clean, well appointed, comfortable, and always smell great. The staff are impressive, helpful, cheerful, and very courteous. We always stay here because of the great park and fly package they offer. Master Lock parking is great and provide very comfortable, quick shuttle service to Sea/Tac airport. The whole experience with Red Lion is top notch. We've never had any issues with Red Lion.

Room Tip: No tips are needed. Every room we've stayed in has been excellent.

Great location practically across the street from the airport! Fast, reliable airport shuttle. Clean, spacious, and comfortable rooms. Gregory's was excellent, with exceptional service! I will highly recommend Red Lion to family & friends.

Having never stayed at a Red Lion before, I trusted the reviews on this site and they were completely accurate. Even better than expected! Convenient shuttle from airport to hotel, where we were greeted by a very friendly and efficient staff who told us where we could dine at a late arrival time. Breakfast the next day at their restaurant next store was very nice and cheap too. Would definitely recommend and stay there again!
