Stayed here for one night with my family. This was our second stay at this property and it was a very similar experience. Let me say that I am a fan of the Red Lion brand and that this property is like most others. ALL RED LIONS including this one are getting tired and need to be upgraded. Time for new HVAC, carpets, furniture, drapes, windows, Flat screen TV etc.
With that being said this is not a knock on this property. I was able to secure an executive suite for my family in advance. This room was very large and fit our needs. Large and comfortable King bed in one room with large bathroom and Jacuzzi tub/shower. OLD SCHOOL wood french doors separate the bedroom from the sitting room. The sitting room has a wet bar, good size mini fridge, pull out coach, and two sitting chairs. We fit a roll-a-way in our room without problems and had our kids on the pull out coach and roll-a-way.
The property was not busy while we were there and were not bothered by closing doors, or noise. As noted above the HVAC is awful. In order to get the fan on you have to turn on the thermostat and whind a 1970's fan knob, which resulted in engine turbine sounds from the fan. NOT good and not comfortable to sleep with. Our room got pretty cold without the fans running.
As mentioned in other reviews the staff that work here were great. Very friendly and prompt at addressing concerns. We needed more bedding for the pull out sofa and it was delivered in a timely manner.
I only give 3 stars as I"m not sure I would stay again with the aging of this property. Compliments to the general manager and staff for doing the best with what they have to work with. This is a serviceable property that you can stay at comfortably and safely.......I guess my family is just becoming hotel snobs and are not willing to deal with loud HVAC systems and old non updated rooms. Too each their own.
