We travel to the Seatac area often to stay a night before catching an early morning flight. We have stayed at a lot of the better known chain hotels but have always been disappointed by the high room rates, poor room conditions and high parking rates, as much as $40 for one night.
After parking long term at the Masterpark Lot A the last two trips because of its close proximity to the airport, we decided to check out the Red Lion this trip. The two businesses operate on adjoining properties and the Masterpark office and shuttles are at the hotel's front entrance. BINGO!
Our room was large, very clean and nicely decorated and the staff were very friendly. All in, we paid under $200 for a one night stay plus 9 days of parking at Masterpark. The parking alone with web coupons would have been $112, which is very competitive for the area, so the room was essentially $85.
The next morning we were at the airport check-in counter within 5 minutes of leaving the hotel. On our return, Masterpark had our vehicle waiting at the front door of the hotel and the parking was already paid, so we only needed to transfer our suitcases, grab the keys and drive off. Again, only 5 minutes after boarding the shuttle at Seatac and we were already driving home. Nice!
We will definitely be staying here on all future trips. The convenience and price is unbeatable.
