“certainly not three stars”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2004

We booked the Red Lion River Inn on Priceline. It was listed as a three star hotel. Although this property does have a great location, the rooms are certainly not three star!! The wallpaper in our room was peeling, and the curtains were coming apart. They do allow pets, that helps. But after one night we moved to the lovely new Oxford Suites just up the river. For $8.00 more we have full breakfast and reception at night. The rooms at the Red Lion are clean, but that is about all that recommends them.

The hotel did not honor my original reservation requested for 2 Queen size beds to accommodate 3 adult persons. I was disappointed and will not recommend this hotel to any of my colleagues should I need to do business in Spokane again.Instead I will stay at Oxford Suites, where its clean, comfortable, and ACROSS the STREET.

We were looking for a nice hotel that allowed pets. This one does. We were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms larger than expected and very clean. Because we had a pet, they gave us a room on the bottom floor with a sliding door out to a grassy area. This was perfect. Their rates were good. The cost also included a complimentary continental breakfast. The service has always been excellent. This is our favorite place to stay while in Spokane. We intend to use this hotel often even when we don't bring our pets.

The rooms are pretty dark, although they are clean for the most part. There are two floors, but no elevator.
